ok last thing do you have the vin so I can pull the correct diagram for your jeep?
all our diagrams are vin specific
take your time
thanks give me a couple of seconds to pull a diagram
ok first thing is to look at the park lamp fuse in the INTERIOR fuse panel, that panel is on the drivers side just above the OBD 2 diagnostic port it MAY or MAY NOT have a cover over it, the fuse to look at is FUSE 6 and it is a BLUE 15 amp fuse, this fuse feeds the park lamp relay which feeds all the parking lamps front/rear and license plate lamps
ok if that fuse is good you will need your teat lamp to see if the relay is getting power
ahh a very common problem, the tail rear tail lamps lamp housings contain a printed circuit board (kinda like many GM trucks) and that circuit board goes bad, USUALLY the ground circuit fails in some way, which causes the power to seek the next available easiest ground path, and when that happens you lose what ever lamps are on at the time, it is MOST noticeable withteh parking lamps on and when you step on the brakes, the brake lamp bulb completes the ground BUT this causes the lamp to go out, the ONLY successful fix I have had was replace the lamp assemblies with either good later model used ones (2002 and up should be ok) or new ones, I have yet had any success in taking apart the lens and fixing the board
yes it is saved just log in to your account and click the my questions tab, be careful with auto zone stuff I have had spotty luck with them you MAY be better and cheaper finding a used set from a later model GC
my girl has LED on her 02 GC with no issues BUT you need to be sure the ones you get have the correct LOAD RESISTORS built in or you will get a hyper flashing turn signal if they work at all,remember your GC was never designed to have a low resistance lamp like a LED (traditional filimant style lamps put a fairly heavy load on the circuit and th eflasher needs this load to operate correctly) so the flasher will not operate properly unless the lamps have the correct load to put on the flasher, as with any aftermarket part be careful of discount parts they are cheap for a reason.
your welcome have a good Christmas
