My window on my 03 Grand Cherokee driver side rear is stuck down and will not go up all the other windows work fine from driver side controlexcept the rear window on the driver side now it is stuck down...

You will have to remove the door panel

Most likely you have a broken window regulator
& are not going to get it up

If it is a switch problem,only,then you unplug the
motor & put battery voltage direct from the battery,
to get it up, until you have time to work on the problem

I have a 2001 jeep cherokee sport. at first the passenger windows only work from drivers side. was having trouble with the drivers side which worked so often. drivers window would go up and would not...

One Problem.
All Of The Window Controls Are Controlled By The Master Switch, Which Is The Drivers Window/Door Lock Control Assembly In The Door. Sometimes A Removal Of The Control Assembly And A Through Cleaning Can Bring It Back To Life. More Specifically The Window Lock Button. This Is Why The Other Windows Have Stopped Working At The Door But The Drivers Control Still Operated All The Doors Just Fine. Next To Go Bad Is The Auto Down Function. basically The Inner workings Of The Switches Are Gunked Up. Take the Driver Side Door Panel Off, Remove The Door Lock Assembly From The Panel. It Can Come Apart, But It's A Three Hands Kind Of Thing. The Buttons Pry Off, But Be Careful They Will Fly Across The Room. Once You Open The assembly wipe Everything Down With Some Cleaner, I Used A rag And carb Cleaner. I Did This And It Worked For A Couple Of Months. It Was Much Easier To Order A New One From Rock Auto.Com, It's Plug In Easy. 1.5 Hours If You've Never Taken The Door Panel Off Just Because You Have To Be Patient. My Replacement Been Working Great For 2+ Years. Cost ~ $60.
Sorry For The Weird Caps, Phone Reply.

Why do my electic windows only work from the driver side in my 1998 jeep cherokee sport?

There is most likely a break in the connection on the passenger side wiring harness that runs thru the doors jam. Either a wire has broken or there is a bad connection at the module connector. This is a very common problem. Sometimes you can grab the harness, when the passenger door is open, an move it around and the door switch will start to work again. The best thing to do is pull off the panel and check the connection at the module window switch then proceed to the wires that are in the door jam, the ones that bend all the time when the door is opened and closed.

Driver window button is the only one to work

lightly pry the switch up from the driver's door and do the same with the other doors. Check the voltage from the door switch on one of the other doors (it probably won't show any voltage). What it sounds like is the master door switch (driver's side) has shorted out, actually it's in the lockout mode. First try some electric contact cleaner spray, and spray the driver's door switch, make certain that the driver's side isn't in the locked mode for other window operation and if that still doesn't work, you'll need to replace the master door switch.

Good luck.

Check the wiring between the drivers door and the A pillar(the body of the car). Sometimes the harness breaks from opening and closing the door.

When you open the drivers door you can see a wiring harness between the door and the body of the car.
You more than likely have wires broken in there.
