Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Just a suggestion as I have seen this before--with door open pull up on outside handle and in door there is a curved latch that can be pulled open with a screwdriver---the hook is likely closed and with opening pressure on the outside handle you should be able to snap it open so the door will close properly---often happens if someone snaps it by accident closed (the hook latch).

If all the doors do not lock or unlock when using the passenger side switch, then the switch itself is probably bad. If the passenger side switch locks or unlocks all the other doors except for its own, then the power lock solenoid inside the door is bad or jammed. If it is jammed, try locking and unlocking the door manually while activating the switch to work its way free.

PULL THE DOOR OFF MAKE SURE THE 2 LITTLE DOOR HANGERS ARE CONNECTED TO THE SWITCH MECHANISM IF IT IS. THEN YOUR SWITCH IS BROKE. GO TO SCHUCKS AND ASK THEM IF THEY CAN ORDER YOU A WHOLE NEW DOOR LOCK SWITCH ASSEMBLY. REWIRE AND TAA-DA!!!

My power locks, windows didn't work and the dome lights would not turn off after closing the door. I removed the black boot that was attached to the drivers door by lifting upward and pulling away from the door. A heavy gauge black wire was broken. I removed about 3/16" of insulation from both ends of the broken wire and connected them by using a connector that both ends are placed in to and then "crimped" both ends so the broken wire made contact with each other and everything worked perfectly! The hardest part was replacing the boot. Total cost to fix is $0.50.

Tips for a great answer:
Unlock all of the Jeep Grand Cherokee's doors and open the driver's side door. Keeping the door open, lock it using the manual lock on the door itself.
Put the manual key into the ignition and switch it to the "On" or "Run" position, whichever applicable, without starting the engine.
Point the remote at the receiver (located by the little bulb on the car ceiling) and hold down the "Lock" button for up to 5 seconds.
When the driver's side door unlocks, you know the remote has been programmed correctly. If you are only programming one remote, jump to the next step. If not, manually re-lock the driver's side door and repeat steps 5 and 6 using each remote you would like to program and then continue.
Turn the key to the "Off" position and turn the ignition on immediately. This must be done within 20 seconds of programming the last remote. You're finished!
