    power windows will not work

  • xremyx Nov 18, 2008

    Same thing, none of the window/door/mirror controls work from the left door, interior lights on full all the time. Actually none of the power window or door locks work even from the individual doors.

  • likfather Nov 21, 2008

    the windows, the door look, and the mirror controls will not work on the drivers side. but the door look does work on the passenger side, plus the window controls in the entire car will not work from the back seats to the passenger side. i need help. get at me at warren_c_moore@yahoo.com

  • focoser Nov 22, 2008

Driver side door control panel buttons don't work power locks on passenger side door only button that works. Interior lights stay on. Before problem the "driver side door open" warning was on but all doors closed

  • gmorr67 Nov 28, 2008

    We have the same problem. Happen two days ago. None of the windows have power and the side view mirrors have no power. All the lights are dim bit the sunroof works!

  • focoser Nov 30, 2008

    Does anyone know or have any insight on this problem? Is there going to be a recall?? If anyone knows a solution please contact me.

  • gmorr67 Dec 01, 2008

    Our battery keeps dying as well. As if the power windows not working wasn't enough!

  • Anonymous Dec 03, 2008

    All windows except sunroof are not working and the dome light will not turn off. Whats up?

  • prettymomma Dec 10, 2008

    i have a 2004 grand cherokee and none of the windows will work, sunroof works fine, also the intereior lights stay on .. can anybody sugest where to start , i already checked the fuses.

  • 2004jeep Dec 22, 2008

    Same, Interior lights stay on however can be turned off with the panel dimmer switch but then the panel is dark, not good at night. all the power windows don't work either. all happened at the same time. Jeep dealer says he has never heard of it. from the number of people on this post experiencing the same that's a little surprising.

  • Tom Stevenson Dec 29, 2008

    I have the EXACT same problem, except the power mirrors also do not work. NOTE: I disconnected the battery minus, waited a few minutes, reconnected, now the interior lights don't stay on (but they don't come on when you open a door either!). They DO come on when I switch off the ignition. This sounds like a logic problem in the ECM. The aggravating part is that I cannot find a fuse for the power windows and mirrors! I'm I missing something???

  • jjcnemisis Jan 02, 2009

    i have the same problem. Windows stopped working and my interior lights stay on. I can manually turn the fader all the way off and thats the only way they go off.

  • mgerber Jan 25, 2009

    Does anyone have an answer? I, too, have the same problem with my power windows, doors and mirrors (they don't work) and my inside dome lights stay on unless I manually turn them off, then the interior lights are too dim. Everything happened at the same time. What's going on?

  • Anonymous Mar 16, 2009

    windows won't roll down,powerlocks don't work..and all the light inside wont turn off

  • steelers1979 Mar 28, 2009

    Jeep should have to fix all of these at no cost due to poor design. Once again American car companies prove that they don't care about customers!

  • ret_EE_atl Mar 30, 2009

    Thanks to all who posted advice on the power window/lock problem. I am a retired electrical engineer and would have found this eventually (after much more time tracing the wiring). Following the advice on this page I was able to find the problem (broken orange wire) in 5 minutes and fix it in 30 minutes! This is a classis $100 repair - $5 for the work and $95 for knowing how to do it!

  • Anonymous Mar 31, 2009

    had the same problem the orange wire was broke thanks for the tip saved me lots of money!

  • albertosaran Apr 18, 2009

    grasias a las personas q escriben al leer todos los comenterios me di cuenta q era un arreglo simple q me hizo ahorrar mucho dinero si llevava mi 2003 jeep grand cheroke al dealer me ubiese costado mucho. el problema fue q los cables anaranjado y negro estuvieron rotos ese era la razon q no trabajaban los controles de las ventanas y las luces se quedavan ensendidas eso esta localisado en el jebe negro q conecta la puerta, este problema pasa porque uno siempre cierra y habre la puerta y los cables son muy cortos asi q chequeen eso antes de llevarlos al dealer....................THANK'SSSSSS

  • analizethis5 Apr 20, 2009

  • Tempted Apr 25, 2009

    This site is AWESOME! I had the exact same problem with my 2004 Jeep GC. The electric windows wouldn't work, door locks, mirror adjustor, etc. Overhead display indicated the driver's door was open when, of course, it was closed. I AM NOT HANDY. Checked out this site, found the info and had it fixed in ten minutes! Thanks.

The Black or Orange wires in the rubber housing between the door and post. One or both are broken. This is a very common problem it will cause all those symtoms.

  • dennis ansell Jul 15, 2012

    Had same problem thanks to the readers on this forum,removed the black boot and found the black wire and the orange wire were broken plus the black wire had been fixed before because there was a splice already in it about 2 inches from break.And I agree jeep should stand behind this as it must be quite frequent as shown on this page and others.......

Thanks to mp_cs and weepin_jeep. I did indeed find the orange wire broke inside the boot for the left door. I was able to remove the plug base out of the door making the repair easier. I was not able to disconnect the plug which would have been even better as I would have pulled it through to the inside of the car to repair it.
Either way a couple of more tips:  1) drop the fuse box cover to facilitate access to the wire inside the car. 2) I used crimps (yes plural) as I added a Marine grade #10, 6 inch section of wire (and it was faster). This will allow you to pull the section or wire out at the door side of the boot and crimp (solder if you prefer) the new section of wire. Then feed it through the boot and crimp the other side in the car. The crimps are now not under stress and the new more flexible wire is just laying loose in the boot. Re-assemble all and that's it.  This is what this one wire fixed: interior lights, door lock, power windows, electric side windows and battery discharge.  Note: I have a 95 Jeep GC that i had to do the same to about 4 years ago, I just could not believe that jeep has not fixed this issue on by the 2004 models, kinda disappointed as well as Jeep service should know about it and could let us know, it would give them more credibility. anyway put the saved money in a box for later use, we all gonna need it, see you on the trails.

Just an addition to mp_cs' solution: I found the broken black wire, but had trouble repairing it (was deep in the boot near the door jam). I rolled the boot back from the door end of the boot, then gently pulled the wire out with long-nose pliers to strip and solder it (could have used a crimp splice instead). Also, to get the boot back on the white connecter frame, I found that, by pushing into the center of the connector with a screwdriver, aligning the screwdriver behind the connector frame lip where the white tabs are, the connector frame easily popped out of the door, enabling me to easily put the boot back on the connector frame and snap it back into the door with an easy push. Hope this helps. Thanks to mp_cs for saving me a trip to the dealership!!!

I have the same problem with a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo... it just started this evening so I'll have to wait for daylight to try the fix (I'm not mechanically inclined, but my neighbor said he would help).

My question is this - since this seems to be a very common problem with the Jeep, would it be a covered issue if I took it to the dealer? I appreciate my neighbor's offer, but he won't be able to work on it until next week and I would really like to fix it sooner than that if I can.

I did look at the recall list for 2004 Jeeps and saw nothing about this - but it seems that many owners have the same issue, so it must be something Jeep is aware of, no?

Thanks for the info. I found the black wire broke about 4" from the conncetor. I did a repair with a more flexable wire. You saved me a lot of trouble shooting time.

Again, Thank you.

    Thanks to others taking the trouble to write I found the broken black wire inside the boot.
    I replaced with 2.5mm multistrand flexible wire crimped at the door side and choc block connected inside the cab (easier for any future testing).
    My windows were open and couldn't close, now great so can dispense with the tarpaulin.
    Thanks to all.

Where is power window control unit located


usually power windows have a relay that sends current to the windows due to the high current flow that the switch can not handle.
So, the switch works through a fuse and when you activate the switch it sends power to the relay. The relay then closes and sends power to the window motor. Look for a relay either in the fuse panel or in the engine compartment fuse/relay ox. check owner manual for location.
