Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Elec. windows don't work Windows operated from drivers side door, in varying positions, and sometimes normally! I suspected a broken wire in the harness between the door and the A pillar. I found a broken blk/wht wire coming out of the door but no corolary coming from the A pillar! I do not have a schematic for that harness or color code. The wire seems too small to carry juice to the master switch, (which I cannot find!) I assumed the circuit breaker was blown and replaced it, I cannot find #13 fuse in the power distribution center(which I also cannot find, I'm assumng it's not the fuse panel since the fuse panel has no #13 fuse position) No windows work! Door panel is off! everything else works fine except the security system! It has 200K+ miles on it! Am I crazy or just stoopid?

Are power locks working? (I think they are on the same circut) Don't think there is a fuse, most likely there is a circut breaker (small metal rectangle plugged into fuse panel Check your manual for location. There may also be a relay for this. Generally I have found that most problems with Jeep windows begin with a failure in the master switch (Drivers door) Everything else goes through there and makes other switches malfunction. Of course since I said that yours will be different, but take a look there to start. Otherwise get a really good wiring diagram and carefully trace from power source.

The electric windows and door locks only work on drivers side of a 2000 buick le sabre limited. why?

The passenger side locks an windows don't work with thier own switches ? Check for B+ voltage at the front passenger door module . Do you know how to do that ? You need to take the front right door panel off . Check for a broken wire inside the rubber boot from the body to the door .
Power Windows
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. The DDM receives a window switch request, over the SBI serial data, from either the passenger door module wired to the window switch pressed or from the driver door switch assembly. The DDM checks the Class 2 serial data to see if the status information is correct (i.e. ignition switch position) to permit window operation.
If the status information to permit window operation is correct, the DDM sends the command to the door module controlling the window to move the window as requested.

Jeeps - All Windows and/or Locks don' work.

It is widely known that Jeeps have a problem with the Driver's Side Windows/Locks Control Module wiring harness that prevents all window motors and/or Power Locks from working. This may be due to the way the harness was laid out.

Over time, the wires feeding this circuits, brake or came loose from the harness connector on the drivers door.

The solution is to remove the rubber boot at the door, unplug the harness from the door and repair the broken, disconnected wires. Check all wires carefully, sometimes you can't tell they are broken because it's insulation, pay special attention to the BLACK wire, it provides the (-) ground to the whole circuit.

This simple procedure will relieve you from the great head ache that is not to be able to roll up or down your door windows.and/or power locks.

Don't forget to rate this Tip !!!! Thanks!

Olds aurora 1999 all four power windows quit working at one time. power sunroof still works.

Then you have two possibilities. First, most likely. Wires have broken. Open the drivers door and at the front you will see a rubber boot from the frame to the door. This is where the wires like to break. Second would be the master switch failed. I have replaced one or two(in 30 years) that the switch completely died. Usually just one or two windows quit working.

Why does power window on left side make a clicking noise and right side does not work at all?

The power window has vinyl gears and a cable that operates the windows. Sounds like the gears are slipping on the one side. The loose wires are going to need repaired to get the other window to operate. You have broken wires in the door. You can take the door panel apart. You will take apart to replace the window gears anyway, so while apart, find and repair the broken wires in the cluster running to the hinge area of the door.

Passenger Power Window Switches Do Not Function

All the wiring for all the windows flow through the master switch...both power and ground. So the problem is most likely a bad master switch or a broken wire in the hinge area of the driver's door. Get a wiring diagram and check for power and ground coming to the switch. If so, then the switch is most likely bad. Read this post

Power windows and locks stopped working but only on the driver side

open driver's door, and check wiring between the door and hinge pillar due to open and closing the door, the wiring will break, use a razor knife and split the rubber cover and check for a broken wire, solder as needed. if no wire is broken, suspect master switch on the driver's door.

Passenger window operates intermittingly. When it

The problem could be in the master window switch on the drivers door, or the window motor could be going out, but most likely the cause is a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle, and the broken wire is making intermittent contact because the door is being opened and closed all the time, and sometimes the wire will touch and make the connection and that is why it only works sometimes.

Try this the next time that the window stops working, hold the window switch down in whatever direction that you want the window to go (up or down) and while holding the switch in that position open and close the drivers side door and move or wiggle around the weather boot that contains the wiring that is between the door and the body of the vehicle, and do the same for the passenger side door, if the window starts working while you are holding down the window switch and opening and closing the door or moving around the weather boot between the door and the body of the vehicle, then there is a broken wire or even wires that will need to be repaired.

The broken wire can be on either the passenger side, or most likely on the drivers side, and if you do find a broken wire or wires, then you should repair the wires by soldering them well and use the same gage wire if you need to lengthen the wire to repair it successfully, and do not use a wire connector if you want the repair to last.

Window problem

Might want to check the doors with the problem windows for a broken wire from the door to the door jam.

The window lock switch is a single circuit to all the other windows, so if there was a problem with it, none of the window controls would work ( but the driver's side would still operate them ).

The other place to check for a broken wire is the driver's side door to a-pillar harness. The circuits for the other windows run through the driver's side switch. Could be a wire in the driver's side door harness.

The other item could be the driver's side switch, the contacts will get carbon built up on them, and the windows will not operate anymore.
This is what mine looked like when the driver's side window stopped working ( lower left hand corner of the picture is the driver's side window switch, note the carbon build up on the contacts )

I would start with checking for broken wires, by metering the window switch for power.

The back passenger's window switch should be getting power & ground on the white w/ yellow stripe wire and the tan w/ light blue stripe wire.
in the "at rest" position on the driver's side switch, these are supplying ground to the power window, and power is being applied to the other side of the motor ( depending on direction of travel ).

The power windows will sporadically work. Now, the driver's side window is stuck in the down position and I can't get it up. The other windows will not work, either, although they are in the up position.

If all of windows have failed at the same time it will likely be a fuse that has blown. I suspect that the motor and/or mechanism for the driver's window may have worn to the point that it is creating high resistance that has blown the fuse.
