How to change the brake switch on a 2004 Jeep grand Cherokee Laredo
Check out this website..this is how i fixed mine http://www.2carpros.com/forum/2001-jeep-grand-cherokee-laredo---brake-lights-not-working-vt4814.html
my fuse panel (with the descriptions) is gone off of my 2000 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo, how to i get a description of what all 32 fuses control on my jeep?
They aren't. The brake light circuit is not connected with the headlight circuit.
Remove the wheel; remove the brake pads and caliper; the rotor should slide off of the lug bolts.
brake relay or sensor
7mm allen wrench
Failed circuit board on the back of the light.
13 mm bolts are most likely on that Jeep.
I also have a 2000 grand Cherokee Laredo. Just changed front pads, and it is a torx bit T45. I couldn't find this answer on the web, so I bought several sizes to find out.
The 1993 Jeep grand Cherokee brake light switch simply plugs in and out. The brake light switch is located beneath the dashboard on the drivers side of the engine compartment.
Mine seems to work fine.
The brake pads might not be adjusted properly. The brake pads can be too tight and have contact with the rotors.
Warped brake rotors. This is a very common problem for the 1999-2004 Grand Cherokees. You will need to have your rotors replaced, or resurfaced. The best resurface method is with an on car brake lathe.
Replace the bulb. There are usually 2 filaments in each bulb and one is most likely out. Replacing it should solve the problem
Not unless you also change the wheel hub. This might require a complete rebuild of the rear axle.
The emergency or parking brake on 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee operates a set of brake shoes inside a hub on the rear axles, this is incorporated into the disc brake setup.
Check the bulbs in case they have fused, next check the fuse, and finally it could be the brake light switch which may need replacing
No. The front and rear brake pads are not interchangeable on a 2005 Jeep.
Check the fuse, and the bulbs, then the switch on the top of the brake pedal
It is just above the brake pedal under the dash.
Buying a Jeep Grand Cherokee Manual would be your best bet, but in a short version to install the front brake pads or any other brake pads. Jack up the jeep block the wheels, put jack stands underneith the axle you are working on, take the tire off, once off set the tire half way under the rock gaurd. Unbolt your brake caliber which is two bolts from inbehind the rotor, once bolts are out, take off brake caliber slowly. there is two brake pads left and right pull them out then do reverse of what you just did to take them out.... Good Luck
