If you're lucky, it's the fuse. But there is also a RELAY that can go bad. Location of the relay is marked on the door that covers the fuses and relays. Costs less than $7 to replace. ALSO and more problematic, the wire that leads to the driver's window switches can wear out and especially break where it goes from the body of the Jeep into the door. If fuse/relay replacement doesn't fix the problem, try to inspect the wiring between the door and body. Has anything pinched? Use a continuity tester to very the wiring is all good. Chances are, this is where the real problem lies.

Most likely it's a fuse. If all windows stopped working at the same time, that's it. Check the fuse block located on drivers side under instrument panel. Fuses are labeled, something like pw, pwr win, you get the idea. The fuse has a small wire in it, hold it up to the light to see if the wire has a 'gap; break in it, or burn mark. If it does, it's no good. Replace with same size fuse (amp size is on the fuse). to remove, just pull fuse straight out.countrycurt0

Does speedometer notworking have anything to do with the transmission not going into overdrive?

A speedometer shows speed, which is the magnitude of velocity. It does not show velocity, which is a vector, meaning it includes a direction. So speedometer notworking have nothing to do with the transmission not going into overdrive. Know more diagnostic tool for car.

Rear electric window will notwork

Yes . Remove door panel, switch connectors and plastic protective covering on the door. have a helper pull the windw up while you measure the distance from bottom of window regulator to bottom of door panel.
(approx 8-12"), cut a block of wood that will fit between the bottom of the regulator to bottom of door panel wedge it threw the opening in the door a place it between the regulator and door bottom. Wood is soft and sturdy and should hold up until you get the window fixed.
Can the driver control panel switch make that window work. If the answer is No then the problem is the motor on that side. If the answer is yes then the problem is the switch on that window. by the way if the driver control panel gets the window to rise Merry Christmas you don't need the wooden block.
