    yea, LOOK UNDER THE HOOD/BEHIND THE GLOVE BOX.... it may not be a fuse friend it may be a relay (probably a relay)... but, check them ALL! you shorted something (there is 10+ possibilities)... if you want to tackle the problem let me know... if you can't, save your time and bring it to a mechanic/walmart..

    Thank you for the advice. I will try to clarify the problem. I havve a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The electric locks and electric windows will not work from the driver's side door controls. I can get the locks to work from the other door. My window momentarily worked yesterday (once), but will no longer work. In addition, I am now having problems with my dash lights and interior lights. When I turn my headlights on and try to increase the brightness of the dash illumination, my interior lights come on. I have to turn off the dash lights completely in order for the interior lights to go off. Any additional assistance you could provide, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Also check the ground wire that goes through the rubber boot at the door hinge, mine broke on both sides and screwed up the electrical system

    Thank you so much! Just had the same problem with my 2004 Cherokee. I would have never found the problem if it wasn't for this post! You saved me a lot of time, and maybe some money! Mine was the ground wire on the passenger side. I did also notice the same thing happened on the drivers side, and the person that "fixed" it did a poor job, so I re-wired that side as well. Again Thank you!

    I had a problem where at least 5 or 6 wires per door broke. Some of the breaks were so close to the connectors that it was nearly impossible to solder them back on. The problem got so bad that my battery would drain completely because of the dome lights and some wires shorting or creating a low resistance return path. I couldn't even start my jeep until i fixed the wires becuase when I tried to jump it, it pulled down the electrical system. last ight I finally replaced all of the wires between the body and doors. It an like a champ after I jumped it and let the battery charge.

It sounds like the switches on the drivers side door have gone bad (very common problem with the grand cherokees). I would first test the switch at the harness. Probe the wires to see if the harness is getting power. If it is not getting power than you have a bad relay/fuse. If it is getting power then there is a very good chance the switch has burnt out. Another possibility, there is a kink in the harness going through the door jam causing a short. as for the interior light issue; The switch has more than likely gone bad and needs to be replaced also (the three most common switches i see go on grand cherokees are the door, lights, and heating controls). but, before you go about replacing any switch, unplug the harnesses and clean the connectors carefully with some rubbing alcohol, fine git sandpaper, and a little bit of dielectric grease. Sometimes its a simple corrosion issue. Let me know how it works out.

    Your right it was a broken wire. My symptoms were: 1 Dim dashboard light 2. No interior courtesy lights 3. Auto Headlights on/off failed they would manually operate with the column control manually. 4. No power mirrors 5. No local door lock unlock function had to use key fob Driver’s door would not lock all others worked with fob. 6. Now power window control. I read other posts and did the following. 1. Checked the interior fuses, OK. 2. Checked the #12 50 Amp fuse in the engine compartment fuse/relay box, OK. 3. Took the terminals off the battery for 20 minutes as one post suggested and reconnected no result. 3. Pulled the articulated rubber boot off the driver door Jamb and found a 14/16 gage largest of group Orange Wire with a White stripe snapped in half! 5. Disconnected Battery 6. Removed # 25 Torx screw from plastic cover behind interior fuse box so I could get a look at the wire bundle. 7. Took off rocker panel plastic cover (pulled and wiggle up it has clips and pins holding it. 8. Then removed 3 Philips screws from the tail of the cover to get it out of the way. 9 rotated the plastic clip holding the wire bundle toward the door to get some slack.. 10 Spliced the broken wire with #16 stranded automotive grade insulated wire using “Scotch Clips” . Reconnected battery and everything was OK. The hardest part was getting the rubber boot back on. Once I Figured out how to get the plastic housing loosened from the door by squeezing the clips alternately on the top and bottom of the fabrication I was able to re install the boot and push everything back into place with a snap. Took 90 minutes plus a trip to automotive store.

Remove your drivers side door panel and the remove the rubber boot where the wires go through. Some of your wires broke probably the ground wire if nothing is working. I just repaired mine a week ago but it is the second time it happened to me.

Interior lights stay on and power windows and power mirrors will not work at all


12_12_2012_10_38_11_am.jpg

Have just disconnected battery on jeep grand cherokee 2004, 05 , the newer bonnet style. Had same diagnosis with a/c not working, electric mirrors not working and driver's window and door lock control not working. Pulled rubber sleeve off door by pulling bottom and top rubber tabs with pliers and rolled back to expose cables, see photo, then used a small connector to reconnect cable, had to take a bit of black sleeving off each cable end and twist cable as normal, then inserted into connector and did up screws tight. Covered in black insulation tape and refitted rubber sleeve to door. Reconnecting rubber sleeve was the most difficult part! Thanks for the ansers here they really helped! Saved me at least 50quid that my local garage would have charged.

Hi all,
suppose you have worked out your little problem. I have just been experiencing the same thing with my 2004 GC ltd. Windows, mirrors, etc not working and interior light staying on. Took it to the shop and they re soldered the wire (behind the door panel) that had come off. Cheap problem really.
