That is the way it goes. Really about the only way is to remove the fuses one at a time and see when the brake lights go out. If the lights are not working, just pull fuses until you find one that is blown.

Don't forget to check under the hood on the passenger side fender- there's another fuse block there!

Check the brake light switch located above the brake pedal, sometimes they go bad, delicate reed switches inside. when you buy the new part - READ INSTRUCTIONS FIRST!! It's a self adjusting part, and you only get one shot at installation, it's an easy fix. Do NOT push the plunger down on the switch, if you try to reset it you will damage the switch, just follow directions word for word and your golden.

Where is the fuse panel for the brake lights located on a 1999 Jeep Cherokee?

The fuse for the brake lights is in the engine compartment fuse box, located behind the battery. Open the lid. Several fuses are marked but many are not. There is a group of 12 fuse sockets in the middle of the panel, arranged in 3 rows and 4 columns. The brake light fuse is in row 2, column 2. It powers left, right and middle brake lamps. If your brake switch fails in the ON position, you can pull this fuse until you can get a replacement switch. The drain of these lights being on can kill your battery overnight. Do not drive car without brake lights!Answerthe fuse panel is located behind the kick panel on the pass side, just below the dash.(to the right of where your feet sit in the floor board) there is also another power distribution panel under the hood next to the battery. Answerthere is no fuse marked brake lights on jeep cherokee's if you have no brake lights and all bulbs are good your problem is the brake switch mounted on your brake pedal, about 30 bucks.
