Question about 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Dealer replaced door control switch drivers door fixed wire that was broken cost of 480.00 and the windows still don't work I have spent 4-5 hours tring to find another wire that might be broken but know luck where can I get wire diagram for door? any other suggestions would be appreciated!!
You may have to keep looking for another broken wire. To the driver's master switch, a tan wire looks like the hot wire (feed) for the switch. And a black wire is ground, originating at the master switch and going back into the cabin with the wire harness, and then to a nearby ground source, probably behind the left kick panel. If you pull the master switch off, key on,, check for power on the tan wire terminal of the switch connector. Use a test light or a voltmeter. Now if you have a hot wire on the connector, put one volt meter lead on the hot wire terminal and the negative lead onto the black wire terminal. If ground is good, voltmeter will read battery voltage. If ground is lost, voltmeter will show nothing. Same with test light-check for a hot wire with key on. If yes, put test light lead on hot wire and use probe to touch ground-if ground is good, tester will light up. Alternatively, you could remove the left kick panel and check the security of the ground to frame there.
The only place I know for a wiring diagram would be a repair manual. Haynes manuals are about the best (about $25 at parts stores), short of a factory service manual for big bucks.
If still no luck with windows, and no hot wire with key on, pull the circuit breaker for the windows on the fuse panel under dash. With key on,. one of those terminals for the circuit breaker should show power. Ground a test light and probe both terminals to check for power. If no power there, check under hood fuses or fuse links that feed the fuse box. If CB has power available, well, that's the feed for the tan wire-sounds like either the tan wire or the black ground wire may have a break. If power to switch, check ground wire.
As a last resort, try a new circuit breaker if powered at CB terminal but nothing at driver's switch. If power is to switch on tan wire, and ground is working, consider that you may have gotten a defective master switch-not likely, but known to happen.

SOURCE: Windows won't work
Your power feed to the window switch panel is a big wire loom that goes through the driver door. Check the connection at the door jamb. I've seen the plug slowly come apart just from the door opening and closing. You should have a power window fuse at the fuse block under the dash as well. The power to all the windows goes to the main switch at the driver door first then goes to the rest of the windows. Hope this helps.

Yes. You can remove the inside door panel fairly easily. There should be several (2-6) plastic covers or cap (behind door handle, where the door is covered with the dash, as well as other hiding spots). Remove these cap and the screws/bolts behind them. After you have found and removed all of the screws/bolts you should be able to lift up and the door panel and remove it. it may be a little tough, but DO NOT force it, you may have missed one of the screw/bolts, look again. When you get the door panel off, be careful that you don't rip the wires from your electric controls (pwr windows/locks).

Mate.I would say the lockout switch on the drivers switch panel is playing up.Take the panel off and check for loose wiring or broken switch.Hope this helps

Check the master window control panel on the driver's door. There is probably a lockout switch. It may have a window outline on one end and the same outline with an "X" over it on the other. Press the outline without the "X" and all your windows should work again. As silly as that sounds, a lot people hit that switch without knowing it. Also, if that switch(lockout) is faulty, none of the windows will work. That happens A LOT!!
You may also find that the connector has simply come loose from the master window control. Good luck!!
