There is a design flaw in Jeep Cherokee tail/brake/turn signal lights as far as I can tell. They tend to be on the left side, too, oddly enough. I've seen a ton of message boards to support this when my left lights went out. I even have a habit now of looking at all the tail lights as I pass them now. I'd say a good 10-15% don't have left tail lights! bad wiring or something most people said on the message boards.

The headlights are on a separate circuit. Check the fuses and if that's not the problem check the headlight switch. You may need to get into the vehicle and trace back the wire that provides power to the faulty circuit. Remember to not replace parts until you've found a real problem and you've been able to verify the problem through testing the part.
