I had the same problem.....there is a rubber boot that covers the wires going from your door to the body of the car.... the heavier gage wires eventually crack from the opening and closing of the door....you need to cut the rubber and get to the wires inside and splice them back together....the first time i had this problem my windows did not work...then a few months later my interior lights would not go out....different wire this time ...easy fix....

1996 jeep grand cherokee, interior lights wn't shutoff


Have you tried checking the dimmer switch for your instrument panel? I believe if the switch is slid all the way up it will cause the interior lights to stay on. Hope this helps.

2004 jeep grand cherokee special edition, windows won't work, doors won't lock (except with key) auto door locks doesn't work either, and dimmer switch for dash whenever turned on all interior lights go on...


sounds like a blown relay and also a blown fuse or two, check the relays under the bonnet and under the dash, you will surely find a broken/worn/burnt out one, replace it (not sure which one it is but they renge from £3/$5 to about £12 - $25 then replace the fuses, if there is no bad relay then just replace any blown fuses - hopefully it's just a worn out relay and not something wrong with the windows or locks that blew the relay in the first place -

04 jeep gc interior lights stay on, power windows,locks not work


Common issue with the early 2000 series Jeep is the window/door lock control on driver side goes dead when the thick guage wires in door become brittle and break from continually opening and closing the door. Had both the ground and hot wires break over the years and both are fixed by making a simple jumper connection with a little extra length added.

Fixing is relativly easy if you know how to crimp wire connectors otherwise you my want someone more experience to help.
Open door, pull back rubber sheath and expose wire harness, unclip the plastic retaining clip and pull out wire harness and located which wire has broken (typically the thick black or orange wire) . Prepare both ends for crimp connector and make a jumper with small peice of heavy guage wire and crimp connector of either end then connect each end to either side of broken wire, tuck wires back in, replace retaining clip and rubber sheath.

You can find videos on youtube showing how to fix

On my 2001 right hand drive cherokee none of the controls on the door panel work, there seems to be power getting into the switch but there is no control for windows, mirrors, locking or curtesy light, any...


Hi all,
suppose you have worked out your little problem. I have just been experiencing the same thing with my 2004 GC ltd. Windows, mirrors, etc not working and interior light staying on. Took it to the shop and they re soldered the wire (behind the door panel) that had come off. Cheap problem really.
