Question about 2001 Jeep Cherokee
I'm having a problem with the power windows. How do you determine if its a short in the wiring or a need to replace the circut breaker? They are getting stuck either all the way down or all the way up. What do I do first? If it is the circut breaker how do I get it out? Does it just pull out?
First off cars dont have circuit breakers, if the fuse is blown the circuit is stone dead until replaced.
I have been experiencing a problem with my R/f window using the passenger window switch, it always works from the master (driver) swith, i noticed that if i tap the master switch it will sometimes allow the passenger side to work, i have not yet made any repair attempts but i intend to start by replacing the master switch.
I have heard of similar issues in other Cherokees.

First check the windows fuse, if this is blow (position 12, 50AMP), replace it...
If not, check the motor wires (Windows Diagrams 8W 60-1) in your Jeep WJ Repair Manual (this is in spanish, but the diagrams are easy to read).

Tips for a great answer:
Passenger Door Switch (PDS)
Body Control Module (BCM)
Rear door power window switches
Power window motors in each of the doors
PWR WDO Circuit Breaker
Power Window System Controls
The power window system will operate anytime the Retained Accessory Power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The driver master control switches are integrated into the DDS. When a power window switch is activated in the up or down positions the DDS supplies power and ground to the window motor control circuits to drive the window motor in the required direction. Prior to activating a power window motor the DDS will supply the control circuit with a low current bias voltage in order to determine that a short to ground condition does not exist and during window motor operation the DDS continues to monitor the motor current to verify proper window motor operation.
The DDS controls the passenger window by a serial message to the PDS. When a power window switch is activated in the up or down positions the PDS supplies power and ground to the window motor control circuits to drive the window motor in the required direction. Prior to activating a power window motor the PDS will supply the control circuit with a low current bias voltage in order to determine that a short to ground condition does not exist, and during window motor operation the PDS continues to monitor the motor current to verify proper window motor operation.
