Any repair on the brake light issues on a jeep grade Cherokee that do not involve dealership repair?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

No idea, I bought this used and when I had the car checked for a over heating problem they told me the brake fluid was old and needed to be changed, however I declined. I have had these problem with this before and had to have the whole rear light component changed, very expensive! Others online have the same problem. Just want to know if there could be an other way.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Cherokee?

2000

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

I would like too fix myself. have not tried anything yet. I thought about buying a trailer light connection and hard wiring it into the tail light. Online problem solvers say and the dealer ship agrees the problem is faulty tail light assyembly.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just if a home fix is available?

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

So what is the light doing?
