Question about 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country

1 Answer

Intermitent electrical problems

At various times, the electric windows only work from the drivers panel and not at the individual doors. Recently, the speedometer stopped working while driving and the red airbag warning light came on, but only for a few seconds. Then everything returned to normal. This has repeated a couple of times with long periods of normal operation in between.

Have a 1998 ford mustang the windows dont work the electric door lock on door dont work how can fix windows to work


Check fuse panel to be sure window fuse is good. If it is check to find out if windows will work from their individual switches. If they do it is probably the master switch on the driver door or the wiring is broken where it goes from the body into the door. Try jiggling the wiring while operating the switch. If you get some reaction it is wiring broken.

Electric windows not working but locking the doors when you push it


Had the same issue, both doors controls stopped working at the same time making the power windows, power mirrors, and power door locks all stop working. However, when the engine was off the door lock would work. It could be many things, but the fact that they all quit working at the same time suggested it wasn't an individual motor. I pulled the door main control panel and with a wiring diagram checked the continuity of each switch through the electrical plug out back. You can get the diagram off kiatechinfo.com

The main door control turned out to be good (expensive part). It wasn't getting power to the control, which meant it was either a broken power wire or a bad ground interrupting the circuit. The easiest to test was the ground. I ran a small wire from the negative battery and put it in the main ground wire on the back of "main door control panel". Worked perfectly on both doors. Apparently the ground for the door accessories are somewhere on the floor board, they corroded from a leaking sunroof. Never could find the bad ground so i just ran a new ground wire to it from the engine (drill a screw into body and attach wire)

Rear electric windows not working


Both rear windows at once? May be the master switch in the drivers door. If there is a problem with the drivers switch then even using the switches in the individual doors will not work.

I have a 1997 ford explorer, and it has power seats and power windows.and the windows and seats will not move.all of the fuses have been checked and are good.


If the fuses are checked ok then there is a possibility that either driver door side main switch or the window regulator or the window motor is gone faulty.
If the windows don't work, any of several issues is likely to blame, including no electricity, bad switches, bad motor, damaged window regulator, or even a broken wire.
Automotive power windows use a switched motor to operate a mechanical window regulator. This regulator moves the pane of glass into the door.
To check and confirm the fault try this procedure:--
1) Open the fuse panel and check the fuses for disrupted elements. The fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel, or between the dashboard and the door. In some cars the fuses are mounted in the engine compartment, in front of the driver's side firewall. Check the fuses and replace if faulty.
2) 
Test the wiring harnesses from the fuse panel to the switches and from the switches to the window regulator motor. If the circuits test fine, then proceed to the next step. If a wiring harness is shorted or damaged, it will need to be replaced.3) Remove and test the switches on the driver's side door panel. Pry them up with a screwdriver and pull them free of the panel's opening. Disconnect the switch assembly from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plug from the assembly. Test the switches individually by touching both sides of one switch with the circuit tester. Each switch will have two terminals, and if the tester is positive on both terminals while the window is activated, then the switch is good. Replace the switch assembly if any of the switches fails the test. Most power window switches come in assembled modules and cannot be replaced individually.4) Remove and test (if possible) the power window motor. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws counterclockwise, then pull the door panel free from the pop rivets. Behind the panel are a window regulator, the window glass, and the electric driver motor. The motor is usually located in the lower right section of the door. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness and unbolt it from the window regulator by turning the bolts counterclockwise. Pull the motor straight out, away from the gears. And check out if motor is receiving exact 12 volts at the terminals. If not then either motor is faulty or there is a confirm short if motor is replaced.
5) If all the above mentioned possibilities are checked out ok then the window regulator needs to be checked. Inspect the window regulator's joints for rust or stiff movement, if the electrical system is operating correctly. These joints can corrode or break, causing the window to stop working. With the door panel off, the window regulator can be removed and replaced by sliding the glass away from the track mounts, then turning all mount bolts counterclockwise and manipulating the regulator out of the door.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Driver's side electric window panel


It has to be a bad master window switch.
See power and ground is supplied thru the master window switch to the other switches. When you press the switch it is routing the power and ground to the window motor. For instance in the up position at the motor the left wire may be hot and the right ground and in the down position it will be opposite.
So if they are working from the individual doors then the wiring has to be good and the switch has just lost it's ability to route it where it needs to go.
