I have a 2001 jeep cherokee sport. at first the passenger windows only work from drivers side. was having trouble with the drivers side which worked so often. drivers window would go up and would not...


One Problem.
All Of The Window Controls Are Controlled By The Master Switch, Which Is The Drivers Window/Door Lock Control Assembly In The Door. Sometimes A Removal Of The Control Assembly And A Through Cleaning Can Bring It Back To Life. More Specifically The Window Lock Button. This Is Why The Other Windows Have Stopped Working At The Door But The Drivers Control Still Operated All The Doors Just Fine. Next To Go Bad Is The Auto Down Function. basically The Inner workings Of The Switches Are Gunked Up. Take the Driver Side Door Panel Off, Remove The Door Lock Assembly From The Panel. It Can Come Apart, But It's A Three Hands Kind Of Thing. The Buttons Pry Off, But Be Careful They Will Fly Across The Room. Once You Open The assembly wipe Everything Down With Some Cleaner, I Used A rag And carb Cleaner. I Did This And It Worked For A Couple Of Months. It Was Much Easier To Order A New One From Rock Auto.Com, It's Plug In Easy. 1.5 Hours If You've Never Taken The Door Panel Off Just Because You Have To Be Patient. My Replacement Been Working Great For 2+ Years. Cost ~ $60.

My power window and door locks fuse keeps blowing.


When the fuse blows figure out what you are doing, what switch is being pressed, then remove the needed panels to access the wiring to the switch and motor it operates, then you will find the damaged wiring and repair the short, no quick fix, just hard grunt work.

Automatic door locks stopped working. Power window controls do not work. The only window working is drivers window.


Change the battery in your wireless remote control. Check the fuses located underneath the drivers side steering wheel, flip the fuse box cover lid over and replace the power window and power door lock fuses. The back of the cover lid will have a diagram showing where each fuse is located, replace with the same number amp fuse. If your fuses are good and the battery inside your remote is new then you will need to replace the drivers side power window switch, click on the link below to view a replacement:

Windows will not work from drivers side master switch or the single door switches lock not working also remote mirrors dont 2001 jeep grand cherokee ltd


First thing to check is the fuses. Look underneath the drivers side steering wheel (to the left) for a covered fuse box. Remove the cover and find the fuse that controls the locks and windows and mirrors (two-three separate fuses) Pull them out "one by one" and see if they are burned out. If they are, replace them with the correct number fuse.If it is not the fuse, the door lock actuator has failed (for the door locks) or the master switch that controls the locks is bad. Go to your local junk yard and find a replacement for cheap

Power windows not working


Sounds like a bad master switch, bad wiring to the drivers door, or bad body control module.

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..


I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

Power Windows


I assume the fuses have been verified to be OK. As long as they are, it seems that either the window regulators in those doors have failed, or there is a break in the wiring between the doors. The most likely problem after fuses though is that the driver's door switches themselves have failed. Power is routed through the driver's door before being distributed to the other doors. If the driver's door switch module has died, then the other switches for those windows won't work either. A replacement driver's switch pod is easy to swap and runs around $10 at a salvage yard - I'd try that after verifying that the fusing is all OK.
