Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

99 Jeep grand cherokee...interior lights, door locks, pwr windows

All of a sudden one day the interior lights stayed on and the power windows would not work. The interior lights eventually go off but takes a really long time (so long I havent timed it yet). Since I purchased the jeep 6 years ago the back left passenger window wouldnt operate, now all the windows dont work. The door locks dont work either they were only operational if you barely opened the door and sqeezed your hand inside they would work but if you opened the door all the way, they would not. If you can help with any of the these problems I would appreciate it.

    Chryslertech,

    Thank you for you help and you were right. I took off rubber boot and sure enough there was one wire that was severed. As soon as fixed the wire my windows worked again. My door locks work again too but they only work if the door is shut (unlock and lock) if the door is ajared ( only takes a few inches) they only unlock and dont lock. You have any idea about that one?



    The interior light problem.....I pulled the fuse for the interior light, checked it out, put it back in and the interior lights went back to normal (dont know why but they work now...lol)



    Again thanks,

The wires that go into the doors has probably broken from opening and closing the doors.They run though a rubber boot where the hinges are. Check all the doors wires. This is a common problem and i have fix many jeeps with these problems.

Power windows stopped working and dome lights stay on. Power locks work only with the "clicker" but not on driver door


Look under the hood fuse no. 12 should be for power windows. Or maybe something like a bad ground wire in drivers door harness.
