Electrical Problem with 94 Jeep Grand Cherokee

20

Asked by Jan 27, 2015 at 07:51 PM about the 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was messing with the driver side door
trying to rewire the control panel seeing the
previous owner had it screwed up and
when I stuck a pair of needle nose pliers in
to unlock the rear passenger windows I lost
power to all windows, my interior lighting
and radio as well as the HUD under the
radio. I checked all fuse's, and none are
blown. Does anyone have any idea what the
issue is? Bad wire? Systems fried?

Since someone else was in there and messed things up a lot of things are possible. My first guess is they hot wired the windows by splicing a wire from another accessory to the window wiring. It could have been done at any of the doors. Especially if one of the doors has a cigarette lighter or power outlet. Someone did that exact same thing to a '66 Cadillac I owned to bypass a faulty relay. Double check those fuses. And look for a common denominator with the things that aren't working. HTH. -Jim

Everything was working until i stuck the pliers in to grab the plastic prong for the window lock switch, when i moved it the left copper plate bent some and thats when i lost power

A fuse blew somewhere. Check them carefully. HTH. -Jim
