SOURCE: what fuse supplies the power windows on 2004 jeep

It's not a fuse. The black wire inside of the rubber boot going between the door and the car has broken. Splice another piece of wire in, and they will work

2004 jeep grand cherokee window fell down

The cables in the window regulator have likely broken. Once the door panel is off you should be able to feel around or even see the broken cable. New regulators are typically readily available at your local parts store. I will recommend either the dorman brand or the NAPA brand regulators or the original equipment one from the dealer.

Power window fell down

HI, The window regulator on this model is a cable driven type and if the cable breaks or becomes unwound the window can fall down into the door. Sound like its time for a new regulator. If your handy its not a real hard task. Hope this helps

Passanger window just fell down when i shut the

I would bank on the cheap piece of plastic the steel cable is attached to inside the door broke. It has happened to every window in my Jeep. You will have to buy the whole kit, from AutoZone or the like, about $250. It is not an easy fix, but doable, if you are mechanically inclined, there are only about 10 screws, after you get the door panel off, thats the trickiest part. I have done it enough to mine it takes me about 45 minutes total. Dealership wanted $700 to do it. For the savings, you can even afford to have a few problems. Good luck.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee driver power window will not lift.

These Jeeps are notorious for the power window regulators failing. I have also seen it on other Chrysler products (Durango). My 2001 Grand Cherokee has had both front windows fail for the same reason.
Here's what happens:
The windows are raised and lowered by a small cable driven by an electric motor. The cable is held in place by a small, weak, plastic part molded into the mechanism. Over time the plastic weakens and eventually breaks, releasing the cable. This is usually when raising the window. Since there is now nothing holding the window up, it falls to the bottom of the door. Try as you might, the window is not coming up.
If this happens DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RAISE OR LOWER THE WINDOW. YOU WILL CAUSE MORE DAMAGE. It is possible to repair this for next to nothing if you stop trying to use the window. It will take a small amount of mechanical skills to pull it off but it can be done.
Remove the interior door panels. There are several plastic clips and a few screws. Be careful not to break the clips.
Remove the entire window regulator. This can be tricky.
Now disassemble the regulator and wind the cable up correctly on the pulley. If the cable or the pulley is destroyed from attempting to raise the window, you may have to buy a new regulator.
The cheap fix - Using heavy wire (hanger works great) form a small U-shaped loop about 1 inch long. Use this loop to hold the end of the cable in place on the window bracket (the part that broke). Slip the "U" around the cable and through the hole on the metal bracket. Bend the wire around the back side to hold it in place.
Before reinstalling everything, connect the electrical components and test for functionality.
I have fixed 3 of these using this method. 3 years later, still working good as new.
