Jeep Cherokee 99'

recently Ive been having some taillight trouble, the taillight on the passenger side fails to light, as well as the indicators when used for nighttime only, they also are fine when used as an indicator. Indicators are the same bulb, and the brake lights and taillights are on the same bulb. If anyone could shed some light on what could be going wrong, please do i cant afford anymore tickets.

The front and rear lights on the passenger side are connected to the same fuse so it can't be that...either replace the bulb or check if its holder is rusted or something of the sort...

Re: Jeep Cherokee 99'

I'd start by swapping the bulbs L-R and see if the problem remains. If it moves to the other side, it's the bulb. If it stays, either you have a corrosion problem as ChaseMark said, or there is a chafed wire somewhere.

I've seen several posts where a chafed wire was found a few inches or less from the light housing.
