Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
When I hit my brakes the entire rear passenger side goes out. I changed my bulbs and sockets and still...same thing. My passenger side blinkers (front and rear) don't work at all. Even the passenger side of my dashboard is dark. Recently my Jeep wouldn't start so I jumped it. Each time I started it, I had to jump it. That evening it finally cut off while it was running. i had the battery checked and it's still good. i reinstalled the battery and it started right up. From time to time I've had some difficulty locking and unlocking the doors from the driver side door controls. How likely is it that all my issues stem from the same thing? If so, what? Please advise.
I guess you have not checked battery voltage yet.??
it must be 12.6vdc+ rested, if not its discharged (spring weather, warm)
it must be 13.3vdc to 15vdc running or the charge system
is failing, note I DID not say what part is. "a system it is"
when the battery voltage drops too low?
all the many computers in the car go nuts. BCM doors , lamps,...
they all hate too low voltages (below 10v can be a problem.)
depends on year of car, and is complex due to so many puters on board. ( are the head lamps dim, ?did you check that?)
if head lamp dim this is FIX FIRST NOW EVENT.
if the starter motor cranks slow, say so,. that too is fix first. event.
you meant it would not crank
or ment cranking was slow starter.
no matter, the battery was discharged the reasons are as follows.
1: battery is NO GOOD< (#1 all time top fail on all cars is THIS)
even green corroded lugs? clean them?
2: bad charge system.
3: left lamps on in car, by accident, some can be hidden.
4: phantom drains, not #3, more serious
there is test for each of those failures. simple tests.
why not get car serviced, like 99% do now.
or ask how to test and what tools are needed
i bet you dont want to buy tools,.. as most here say.
so.... its what. get car serviced
if you have DMM volt meter say so, any voltmeter, to start. works.

SOURCE: power door locks and windows
The answer to your question is maybe. Get a couple of switches from a junkyard (my guy gets $5.00 each) and try them. Here's why: I have no less than five different wiring diagrams, and none of them make any sense at all (been doing this stuff a really long time) I keep a good switch handy to check my jeeps when one gets wierd on me...even so, my 93 passenger window works with the key off, none of the others do. Stopped trying to figure it out a long time ago, but would really like to meet the guy who designed this stuff!

slide the rubber boot up and check the wires in the hinge of the doors. I will bet anything that the wires are broken. that was what was wrong with mine. just splice them back together and everything should work fine.
