no break light

I have a 05 grand Cherokee limited and my drivers side break light won't work. The directional and the rear light still work and its on the same bulb as the break light. Can anyone help? I looked under and didn't see any broken wires or anything

That would be the bulb. There are different filametes in the buld for each function, and the filament for the brake light has gone out.

You have a light that tells you when to take a break?

Check your fuses if it's not the bulb. There is seperate fuse for each function in each tail light. There are five or six fuses total for the tail lights.

I already checked the fuses and replacing the bulb was the first thing I tried

How does the socket look? any corrosion or heat marks? Do you have a tester to check for power?
