I have a Jeep Cherokee and the brake lights do not work, everything else related to the tail light assembly seems to be working properly,  "turning signal", "flasher", "head light", and the "backup light". I press on the brake, and the tail light does not illuminate? Does the brake light have a specific fuse or is there a fuse for the entire assy?

There is a fuse for the brake light circuit that should be underneath the left side of the dash.  It is also possible the brake switch itself (attached to the upper part of the brake pedal) is out of adjustment or internally faulty and may need to be replaced.
