Anyone else having these issues? First it was the rt speaker that kept going on and off. Now the power windows work when they want. They all work from the drivers side but not the other doors all the time. Now the back wiper died and will not work at all and the back interior light only comes on for a sec and shuts off. What is going on?

Re: 2001 Jeep Cherokee Electrical problems
Possible cause is the wiring loom in the jam of the doors. Constant opening and closing of doors will break the wires here causing intermittent problems with any item associated with doors switches/controls etc.

Sounds like a problem with your computer. If you take it to an AutoZone or similar store, they can hook up a device up to your computer and it will give out an error code or a list of error codes which can determine exactly what is wrong because this can be multiple things. Let me know how this goes and I would be happy to direct you from there. Also if you have any other questions or concerns, just ask as I would be more than happy to answer them.
You need to check if there is power in the harness going to the tail light. The tail light itself is just a big housing. the bulb sockets and harness are separate items. No reason to replace it. Obviously it is an electrical problem in either the fuses, switch, wiring or body control module. No good shop will be able to tell you what is wrong without testing but you likely didn't even check the bulbs yet to see if they have burned out. (gotta start somewhere!) get yourself a decent volt ohmeter and start tracing the wires to see where the power isn't and where it is. No magic here, just patience and time. If anyone installed trailer light harness or if there is evidence that anything else was tampered with, check there first...people can mess things up better than the car can by itself.
I had the same problem in my jeep that kept me baffled for along time than i ran across an article on line about the small terminals on the socket of the fixture itself having to be readjusted carefully (you could do it yourself). and it solved the problem. so if its not the bulbs or the fuse give it a shot
You have a short in your electrical harness, or a short in the headlight switch. Look in the yellow pages of your directory for auto electric shops. Call at least three shops. Tell them what you are experiencing and get an estimate.
To resolve the issue you are facing with you need to check the following parts—
1.Battery voltage at window switch. If no battery voltage at that switch, check for broken wire between door and body it means the motor of the window has gone bad.
2.If window can be operated by driver switch or individual switch it means window switch has gone bad.
3.If the pin connectors are broken then it means the switch connector of the window has become unserviceable and need replacement. If none of the non-driver switch is working then it is a bad lockout switch.
Please check all the above possibilities and repair/replace whatever is gone bad.
