Check the wiring going from the main body to the door. Remove the rubber boot from the driver's door jam and inspect the wires carefully. Over time these wires in that area are prone to wear and break from the normal opening and closing of the door. HTH. -Jim

I have already done this could it be the passenger door boot and wires

So the windows are completely dead and the lock on the driver's door only won't work? Just making sure I understand. Check for a bad relay for the windows. Check to make sure there's power at the driver's lock actuator. HTH. -Jim

none of my windows work from any of the switches and the drivers side door does not lock or unlock unless i do it manually. The electric locks work from the passenger side but not the drivers side. nothing on the whole driversside panel works. what is the most likely situation and can I fix it myself? thanks!

Why is there NOT a recall by jeep for this problem? My windows are stuck half way and door locks won't work same problem for many Grand Cherokee owners. I don't have the Big Bucks to have it fixed.How about a RECALL for this problem JEEP!

All my locks and windows worked great, until I had the regulator/window controller replaced in my drivers side back window. Now the doors can only be locked with the remote (except the drivers door) and the windows do not work. The main control on the drivers door was checked and replaced and all fuses where checked, still no change. Any ideas?

On my Grand Cherokee Jeep my interior lights stay on too. I had to turn them off by turning off the dash lights. None of the windows will go down. And none of the door locks work. The driver's door lock will only lock or unlock with a key. the other doors will lock and unlock with a key. I'm so stressed over this----this all happened at one time.

I was experienceing all the same problems...only all my instruments on my Dashboard went dead...ex: gas guage, rpm, mph....Also every lighht on the dash board came on...ABS,checkengine, e-brake. Also my blower would work to my AC, but it would not blow cold air. I simply undid the battery terminal for a day and it helped almost everything. I need to clean the terminal also which also may help. Now my windows work randomly, it may be because the battery took a major drain, but everything else works great. I know there is still a problem somewhere....but I just need it to hold long enough to trade

My 2000 cherokee laredo also developed some of the same problems. Driver side door would only lock/unlock manually, and now its all doors. All four windows stopped working. Dome light, and dash lights stopped working. If I turn the switch all the way, for the dome lights, the dash will light up. Never had these issues, until a week ago. Drove to work one day fine, go to start it up, and it beeped for 10 minutes, and nothing worked since. Killed the battery, took that out to charge, and havnt had time to look at it since. Ideas?

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The doors lock and windows roll up and down just fine from the driver's side until I open the door, then nothing works. I'm trying to figure out what is making it short out when opening the driver's side door. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Last time I had this issue on a customers vehicle...... It was the ignition switch that was bad. Apparently dodge/Chrysler runs a 30 amp hot feed thru the switch for the blower motor , windows, cluster etc.... And they are all on the same line... Hints the reason why so much stops working. The switch after market should be like 24 or so dollars. But will restore all the components. The switch get the ign switch hot and it burns out. Best of luck!

Thar explains why my fan just quits blowing randomly. Thanks gopher0749


I am very frustrated as well. My 2008 Grand Cherokee has been a nightmare! In 2012 replaced the starter. Then in 2014 had to replace the key fobs after Performance Chrysler said it was an ignition problem. All during 2015, electrical issues again and they want another $800 plus repair. This is crazy - lights work-don't work, can't control dash lights, etc. . Now, dealing with 1997 Grand Cherokee driver's door will only unlock with key, but inside will manually lock. Three Windows partially open, will not operate manually. Passenger front - will go up and down manually and, three doors (minus driver's door) will lock manually or with key fob. Went in store working fine, came out - not working. Electrically system sucks in apparently, all years!

APPARENTLY the doors jam is the most common place for the wires to break and you just pull the rubber boot back and check there first! It's the easiest/quickest place to begin.

Hi my name is Porter, some of your problems will be fixed by going out to your vehicle unhook the battery, touch both cable ends (the poss. And the negative together) leave unhook for 10 to 15 minutes hook battery back up and watch your problem go away, I tried everything and someone told me to do that and my 2002 jeep has been working ever since. Please try it and let me know if it helped.
