Brake lights saying on
I would suggest a circuit for the brake lights has shorted out somewhere causing the brake lights to have power constantly!
you will need to trace the wiring from the brake switch to the brake lights and check for shorting out.

I have a 08 Cherokee SRT8 that did the same thing. I took my radio out and unplug it from the back to disable it from getting power. Waited a min then plug it back up. Note: if it does it again, replace head unit. Unit is going bad. I replaced mine w/ a aftermarket Pioneer double din with navi using all the factor plugging and steering controls.

Hi my 2008 liberty am fm cd radio has just started cutting out, the audio part stays on for a while then stops and when i turn jeep off the audio comes back on any ideas.thks
stock radio? no photo of it so how can I guess?
ok , so do tell what works and not first.
all 4 speakers cut out. left right front and rear?
am fm cd
car drives ok, day and night all other features work on car.
yes, then the audio system head end (or amp if opted)
this can be a loose or bad fuse to it,
or wires to it hacked, for sure if not stock, yah.
all radios can be bench tested.
a speaker. and antenna or CDDA cd disk, store bought.
sure can, done a vast numbers like that,
is it just a radio or radio with external amp?
step 2 is power to radio good, a voltmeter checks that easy.
if power is good to it then the unit is bad.
power means the power wire, and ground good. 12vdc key on. is good 0v is bad.
the other power wire is memory only.

My radio stopped working in 2012 jeep compass.how do i fix this?
That would depend on the reason it stopped working. Many newer vehicles have theft protection systems for the radio that will disable them if power is interrupted to the device. In that case, there is usually a code that must be inserted into the radio via the selection keys to re-enable the device. This code was provided to the original buyer by the dealer. They tell the owner NOT to store it in the car, as thieves usually steal both the radio and the owners manual in order to get to the code when the owner writes it into the manual. Thus, often when the car is sold, or even if the owner misplaces the code, when the car is serviced or the battery gets replaced, it can be a problem getting the radio back to working order. A lost code requires involving the dealership. If the problem is not with a code, the radio just isn't working, then after checking the fuse to ensure that it has power available, if it is not working, then replacement is the viable option.
