I HAVE A 2000 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE, ALL LIGHTS WORK EXCEPT THE 3 BRAKE LIGHTS.
I REPLACED THE REAR LIGHT ASSEMBLIES WITH LED'S AND REPLACED THE STOPLIGHT SWITCH AT THE BRAKE PEDAL TO NO AVAIL. ANY SUGGESTIONS WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED!
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! -JOE

Do you have a digital volt meter and a test light so we can do some testing to find and fix your problem?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Negative and it's just about dark here in Texas.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Could the multi-function switch be the culprit?
Expert:  kalamykid replied 10 months ago.

Can you get a digital volt meter tomorrow and we can do the testing then?

Expert:  kalamykid replied 10 months ago.

Do the turn signals work?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I go back to work tomorrow and yes turn signals, parking, reverse lights all work.

On this year, the turn signal switch does not have anything to do with the brake lights. Can you check fuse 23 in the fuse box on the drivers side of the dash please. It should be a 15 amp fuse.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Tested it , it was fine.
Expert:  kalamykid replied 10 months ago.

How did you test it?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Switched it with another 15 amp fuse.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Fuse to the fuel pump.
Expert:  kalamykid replied 10 months ago.

You are going to need a digital volt meter so we can find out why you do not have brake lights. If you get a meter then I can walk you through the testing step by step to find and fix this problem.
