Tail lights not working

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with I6 engine and 121000 miles. The tail lights do not work. When the lights are turned on the stop light comes on but not the tail lights. The brake lights work as do the turn signals and back up lamps. I've checked fuses and bulbs all are ok as best I can tell. I haven't seen this exact problem posted so anyone have any ideas?

Re: Tail lights not working

Find your model and order it through ebay or rockauto maybe. I have both my tail lights and middle tail light go throughout the years, easy change.

Re: Tail lights not working

Most of the times problems with the tail lights are because of a bad contact in the light sockets. Bending the small copper colored tabs a bit out normally solves that problem.

Re: Tail lights not working

After changing light bulbs and tweaking the contacts in the circuit boards I think I solved the problem. Everything working as it should now. Thanks for your help.
