There should be a switch on the driver's door that allows you to select who can operate the windows, the driver or everyone. It sounds like that switch is in the driver only position.

Sounds like a wiring problem. trace wires. check power at all window switches. by a manual and look at the wiring diagrams find out what should do what when the switch is pushed and test it.

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.
Sorry For The Weird Caps, Phone Reply.

It has to be the switch or the wiring, right? So pull out the switch and probe the back with a volt meter to see if power is coming out of the switch. If yes, trace the wires to the doors.

Why do my electic windows only work from the driver side in my 1998 jeep cherokee sport?


There is most likely a break in the connection on the passenger side wiring harness that runs thru the doors jam. Either a wire has broken or there is a bad connection at the module connector. This is a very common problem. Sometimes you can grab the harness, when the passenger door is open, an move it around and the door switch will start to work again. The best thing to do is pull off the panel and check the connection at the module window switch then proceed to the wires that are in the door jam, the ones that bend all the time when the door is opened and closed.

How to get the door pannel off


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls.

Power Window Not Working

There’s a wire harness and plug that go thru a flexible boot between the body and the front doors to control the switch clusters on the doors.
Over time opening the doors will affect these components.
  1. Check fuse # 8
  2. Make sure the plug (referenced above) is secured.
  3. Peel back the boot carefully, and check the wires.
(In my Jeep, I found the black wire broken and the light blue w/blue stripe wire cracked. I fixed them on the drivers side, and the mirrors and the locks now work. My windows are still not working, so I’m going to check the passenger side.)
Good luck!

I don't have the manual to my 2000 Jeep Cherekee Sport.


It is a 12v heavy guage wire that tends to burn out the point where it connects to a white plastic multi-pin connector near the fan. It comes back on when a viration jiggles the break closed.
It takes alot of time, patience and a limber back to climb under the dash and find it. I suggest going to a shop - < $100.

1994 Jeep Cherokee Power Window Problem


When you open the drivers door you can see a wiring harness between the door and the body of the car.
You more than likely have wires broken in there.
