I own a 93 Jeep Cherokee Country. The driver side window controls are the only ones that can control any of the windows. Now before anyone says to check the wiring where it goes thru the door, I did that. I have power to the window lock switch and back to the kick panel on drivers side where there is a multi wire block.. I pulled up the rug in front of the drivers seat and found that there are 2 yellow wires that have broken. I am assuming that one goes to power the passengers switch hot all the time and the other might be for controlling the rear passengers windows in the rear with the switch. The yellow wires do NOT have any stripes on them at all They are both solid yellow. Yellow wire does come from the window lock switch and yellow wire is on all the rest of the switches. I have a crappy Haynes book that shows what they call a wiring diagram, but in my opinion shows nothing on the route these wires travel. Any help would be appreciative.

I have the same problem, I thought the lockout button could be broken so I unplugged the harness but it didn't work.

I have a 98 Cherokee Sport...

Any other ideas on how to fix this?

You can either do it yourself or take it somewhere but you'll probably have to go through each wire with a voltmeter thing (ampmeter?) and check how much current your getting at the end. If you are only getting a little power, no power, or intermittent power, you have a bad wire somewhere. Or worst case an exposed wire hitting some metal and grounding it shock

This is only my opinion and it can probably be done easier than this but I usually work with the simple stuff like radio, speaker, and sub/amp installs.

Good luck!

Viper, Yup I'm doing the volt test. But, I'm planning on doing it on my vacation, Sucks don't it? Anyways I need to pull the 2 front seats and the console out to get to all the wires. Holy moly was all i could say when i peeled back the rug as far as i could. They have got many wires running all over the floor board. In my opinion it was a bad design. Thanks for your reply
