2000 Cherokee LTD 4.0
My brake lights haven't been working (none of the 3). Found blown Fuse #23 in the Power Distribution Center under the hood. Replaced fuse and it immediately blew again. I must have a short somewhere in the brake light wiring. My question is - where would I even begin to look? I checked all 3 brake light sockets (wiring coming out) and they look OK. I took the rear compartment side trim off (behind the spare tire) and found 3 ground wires that are all securly fastened to the body.
No electrical work has been done within last 5 years and no mechanical work has been done for last year or so. Just noticed brake lights weren't working about 2 weeks ago.
Any ideas on most common causes?
