I have a 2000 Jeep Tj 4cyl and all the brake lights don't work, I have replaced all of the bulbs but still nothing, then I checked the fuse behind the glove box and it to was fine, does anyone have any idea what the fix is?

Thanks Barret

Personally I would take it somewhere and have them trace it down. Even though my side-marker didn't work (even after replacing the bulbs) and I just left it alone and now it works.. :confused: Idk lol but that is definitely more important than a side-marker so I would have it professionally done

thanks for the reply but is there something more I can check for? maybe a switch on the pedal or something a novice can look for?

thanks again.

Do your reverse lights work? I noticed mine were not working one night and the connector under the rig by the t-case had popped loose so I reconnected it = All Good. I was not sure if my brake lights were working at the time or not.

Thanks Wade,

My reverse lights do work but I will crawl under it afterwork today and see if there is a connecter for the brake lights as well.

:) Great News,

I have fixed the problem with my brake lights. There is a switch on the top of the pedal that needed to be replaced. a $30 switch and 10 minutes of time.
Thank you everyone for your help and suggestions.

Same thing happened to my jeep last winter that switch you replaced is a tiny bit sensitive to water (least that's what I've been told) might have gotten it wet or it was just it's time to go, glad you figured it out!

ditto. Glad you solved it.

I recently replaced the brake light switch in a Chevy 3500 dump truck...which was a BIIIIATCH to replace due to it's location high up on the pedal, with lots of little snap ring things and no room to work. Took about 2 hours to get it swapped. Still didn't fix the problem.

The solution--I had checked all fuses earlier, and found none blown. I missed a spot labeled "stop lamps" somehow...that was empty. Some nimrod at work had apparently REMOVED the fuse for some reason...
