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

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

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!

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.

User Js08016 has the best answer. Best to check the wires in the drivers door to body boot first. You can disconnect the harness right at the door. Take the 4 bolts out of the hinges and 2 out of the door stop at the body. Remove the door w/ help. The boot will push back into the hole in the body where you can get to the wires easily. I soldered the hot black wire a year ago. This year it was the orange wire. I crimped a yellow connector in the black wire and a blue connector in the orange wire. Taped foam rubber around the wires and carefully slide boot back and lock back into body hole and plastic door grommet. Replace door and adjust. Drivers side worked but passenger didn't suspect the bad wires burned out the passenger side window control or it went on it's own. New one around $300, picked up junk yard one for $25. Everything works again. Bill

I just bought a 99' WJ, I am having the same door problem among a few others that could all be linked to the same source. Along with the losing power to the driver door when it's opened, I have NO power when the key is switched to Accesory. It starts with no problem, just dead when the stereo should come on. Another problem, my electric fan (radiator) would never turn on, turns out the PCM is not sending any power back to the Relay Module to tell it to turn on. Since I can't drive the Jeep w/out the fan, I had wire in my own switch to over ride it and turn it on manually. I believe this could all be coming from a ground these all share. I did find some RAT TURDS in my glove box and its possible they found a nice wire to chew on. ((SMH))

All door controls on driver side stopped being effective, (windows, locks, etc. pushed boot back and exposed the black wire had broken into on drivers side. Managed to splice wire(tight working space) and all is back to normal now for my 2004 4.7L grand cherokee

I'm with Jamieson. The only thing common to all of these issues is ground. My remote control door lock and the passenger windows fail at the same time. I have the wiring service manual. I fear common grounds or grounds period are not well documented. When I push the passenger window switch on the driver door, I hear the relay click in the passenger door but no window motor. The relays must have a separate ground. But why would the passenger window motors and lock solenoids fail in conjunction with the key fob. And yet the panic button still works.

Insight: I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L 4x4. I was having issues with the door locks and windows as well as a few other strange oddities that would happen from time to time. With the door locks, I had to have the driver door closed to the point that only my arm would fit enough to reach in and trigger the locks. Sometimes I had to toggle the switch back and forth. Every so often my dash lights would come on without the headlights or parking lights turned on and my information module overhead would have blanks or dash lines instead of the actual information. Removing the negative battery cable for a few minutes resolved that issue for a time and then it would return a couple of weeks later. Things went on like this for a while as I just didn't have the determination to get into serious TS over the issues. However, in the last few weeks or so I started getting an intermittent stalling and that eventually turned into an intermittent immobilizer initiated problem. The jeep would run fine and then after driving for a while and shutting it off and then trying to re-start it the immobilizer light would stay on in the dash cluster. If I let it sit over night it would crank fine the next morning. I decided to dig into the issues and discovered that I actually had four broken and completely separated wires in the driver door that were intermittently making contact every now and then. It was tough to disconnect the wire harness connector in the door side and push the wires and protective boot in through the vehicle side under the dash, but that's what I had to do to have enough room to properly splice the wires back together with heat shrink butt connectors. Unfortunately, while my windows and locks worked from the driver window control, I still had the intermittent immobilizer issue. Longer story shortened, I had a bad PCM that was not properly communicating with some of the other modules around the Jeep. I purchased a used PCM, Ignition cylinder w/ key and an immobilizer all as a set from ebay for $135.00. Once I installed everything the Jeep started up just fine and everything works as it should and has been doing so for over a month now with no incidents whatsoever. From what I understand, the door wires break often and it can lead to shorting/grounding other modules or components. Apparently the PCMs are notoriously of poor longevity as well. I hope this insight can help some one else figure out their problem.

OMG, my windows would not work, door locks and mirrors did. I had power going in and out. AC stopped working and dash lights were on even without the switch on. I tried everything as listed in previous posts. I unhooked the battery like suggested and guess what. It worked thank you all
