Re: windows will not go up or down and a/c unit will not...
Same window? Those Jeeps are fully of unreliable relays. Start checking (swapping) those that work, with those circuits that seem not to. A very common problem--lots of owners carry a couple of spare relays in the glove box.

The window motors for some reason have plastic gears. You can rebuild or replace them, it is just a pain. I've used Epoxy to fill in the gears where they attach, if you do that, it will last about a year, depending on how often you use it, but it only costs a couple bucks as opposed to 80-150 or more for motor.
The motor that powers the window up and down is probably shot, and needs to be replaced. This requires removing the door panel, drilling out the power window mounting rivets, removing and replacing the motor. I have a 96 grand am, and over the last 3 years I have had to change all 4 power window motors. Not the best quality motor.
the window regulator is made to lift up and down the window continuously for a number of years, some last forever and some dont. he motor still works but cant draw the correct power source from the batteryy to lift the window as the motor is working at half the strength as the motor wll be slowly burning out. it wont work even if you replace any fuces or switches. you can pick up a secondhand regulator froma wreckers and easily fit it at low cost. some will fit it for you for a small price.
No there is no bypass. The Motor in my tailgate crapped out on me last year partly to do with a rusted out tailgate that let water in! I replaced my tailgate, but in my research found that the only way to get the window down was to remove the inside panels on the tailgate, un screw the cover plate, and then unbolt the motor to allow the window to drop enough to open the tailgate. Once the tailgate is down it will be easier to see the internals and remove the motor. Hope this helps you
For several years Buick used a cable type power window.They only last 3 to 5 years.A small piece of plastic connects the cable to the window and lifts the window up.It breaks and the window will slide down.Then the cable jumps the track on the power drum and jams.It cannot be fixed with any sense that it will last.I have spent 2 days repairing the cable and drum and using epoxy on the plastic part, but the plastic part will break again.The dealer will charge about $500 to replace the power window assy, and it will last for another 3 years.To do it yourself, buy from a parts house that will give a lifetime guaranty.Cost about $90.
Note: If the window stays up and you do not hear the motor it is most likely electrical and not mechanical. My 2000 Buick has had 7 window failures.For a temporary fix remove the door panel and use a small C clamp under the window.A 1 in C clamp fits best.Lift the window full up and clamp it in the center on the power cable support and tight against the window attach plate.
