Check the wires inside the rubber casing and see if they are about to or are already broken.

Sounds like you need a new window motor, or perhaps the window is binding in the tracks. The short bursts you describe sound like the motor is drawing too much current, some systems have current limiting built in for detecting auto up and down limits. If the current rises too high from a bad motor or binding tracks, the system thinks the window is all the way down or up and shuts off.

I have a 2004 jeep and the passagener side window wont go up or down and the window is down, but cant hear the motor with short burst

You are going to have to replace the window regulator. There ia a cable that connects the motor to the glass that has broken and most likely wrapped itself around the motor. That is why you can hear the motor in short sections but you are not getting any corresponding movement with the glass.

2006 Grand Cherokee Laredo. Driver side window raises to top then lowers to halfway when you use the button in automatic mode. When using the button at halfway it works normally.

try pressing and holding window switch until window motor stops in down position,then pull up and hold switch until window motor stops..this should recalibrate window position..i hope this helps

Right window will not roll down..

Did you meter the wire at the master switch? If so and you have power the switch is bad, if not you have a short in the wire.

Rear window won't go up

Open door panel and disconnect wires from motor. Ignition on use test light in contacts to determine where power is. Run a wire from each contact to terminals on motor til it goes up. Might just replace switch first

Rear drivers side window inoperable.

if you don't hear the motor it's probably got a short or bad switch. If the motor runs and the window doesn't move you have a damaged gear.
