This video demonstrates how to change a burnt out taillight bulb on your 2012 Jeep Patriot. Some of the other bulbs in the tail light cluster such as the brake light or turn signal may also function as the tail light in your Patriot. It is possible for the turn signal or brake light to work but the tailight part to be burnt out – replacing the bulb on your Patriot will restore functionality to both. Since the tailights are on whenever your parking lights or headlights are on, they will burn out eventually. Burn out tail lights are a common reason for a police officer to pull you over, so we recommend changing all of the tail lights on your Patriot whenever one is burnt out.When changing the tailight bulb on your Patriot, be careful not to touch the glass part of the new bulb as this will cause the tailight bulb to burn out quicker.

How Important Is This Service
Tail lamps exist so that vehicles behind you can see your car. When you turn on your headlights, your tail lamps illuminate. This keeps your car well lit, and helps vehicles behind you see your car. When your tail lamp bulbs stop working, your car will be less visible from behind, which is a safety hazard. Driving without ignited tail lamps is also illegal, and the fix-it ticket can carry a hefty price tag.
