Question about brake lights...

Hey guys I have an '02 Grand Cherokee and my drivers side brake light stopped working over the weekend, so I replaced all the rear light bulbs. Now my running lights are working but the brake light still isn't. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

Could be the contacts need to be bent back in place, this worked for me only temporarily. I replaced the bulbs, the sockets, nothing seemed to remedy it until I found out that my circuit board for the light unit could be fried. I just ordered new ones online to swap out. Ten minutes of work and the cops stopped harassing me.

Thanks man I'll give that a try when I get off work. And the only reason I noticed was because I got pulled over this weekend for it so I know how you feel haha.
