Hello Faye Sims,

Whatever you are looking for... it is big & common
to a lot of circuits... My best advise when starting
to trouble-shoot MULTIPLE ISSUES is a start
at the MAIN BATTERY & GROUND connections.

(unless your CHEROKEE has recently been flooded).

Start at your battery posts and move METHODICALLY
through your main body (ground) & Starter cables
(battery) and make sure the connections are clean
and tight.

Look for corrosion, breaks or discoloration of insulation or any signs of heat... Unless you are in a terrible rush... Shop for best prices from reputable sources (Like: Rockauto, Napa,
even eBay & AMAZON (etc.))... also such products as
CONTACT CLEANER, NALOX/NoCo & battery washers
(in my opinion... are a MUST on AUTO-BATTERY posts).

See here:
Amazon com Battery Anti Corrosion Washers 2 Red 2 Black Automotive

Quality High IMPEDANCE (or No Contact) VOLTAGE
TESTERS... will protect existing circuits while attempting to find faults... (without FEAR of triggering EXPLODING AIR BAGS
(in my opinion))... Or destroying semiconductors w/ spark...
Klein Tools NCVT 2 Dual Range Non Contact Voltage Tester Amazon com

Amazon battery cable
Amazon com Deka 00297 Positive Battery Cable Automotive

Rockauto battery cable (less $, 3 years, 36000 miles)
http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/jeep,2000,grand+cherokee,4.7l+v8,1381418,electrical,battery+cable,2500

Finally... Check out buying A FUSE at your local parts store
(abusive & egregious $$$$ (know your FUSE TYPES))
Amazon com Bussmann NO 44 ATC Blade Fuse Tester Puller Kit Automotive

Comment me back... Spent a lifetime doing this...

SOURCE: 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee - problem with power windows/locks

This seems to be the affects of a bad dinamo charging your battery . If you take a appart the dinamo you should fine a part called in mechanic terms "the bones" they look like 2 black magnets with a wire coming out of them . They are not expencive and you should not change your dinamo untill you try this first a car dinamo is very expencive .

SOURCE: My dash lights all come on, the gages stop

Sounds like an electrical problem; look for loose, corroded or kinked/broken wires. The problem is most likely in the dash wiring/connections and seems to be pretty common in jeeps.

you have a short in your electrical systemwhich could be fatal. first,batterycables are clean and tight. second, check for loose wires at the starter. third,check each and every fuse,make sure the correct amps are on the fuse. check your light switch. if these attempts fail, then take to an electronics tech.

SOURCE: Alternator light on dash is on, but very dim.

the alternator is supposed to put out at least 14 to 14.3 volts when running, at least 13 volts at battery when it is off. if the battery voltage while running is 11.9, then the regulater in alternater is bad.

My 2004 Pontiac grand am se1 acts like door is open and interior light stays on also does t lock on its own when in gear and lights don't blink and horn not honk when locking with key bob


Door ajar switch problem more then likely or wiring issue . The BCM - body control module won't turn off interior light , let door lock because it think's the door is open . The door ajar switch is a input to the BCM .

The first thing would be to have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Also check with an enhanced scan tool to see if the BCM shows ajar switch data (open or closed ? Do you know about body electronics ?

Windows work some times other times when they dont sometimes opening the passenger side door and shuting then they work other times it dosent work and when they dont on the drivers side the light in side...


It seems your switch or the electrical connection to it is going bad. You should open up the door panel and use a multimeter to test the switch. You can by a replacement at the auto parts store ( autozone or oreilly) if it has gone bad but sometimes they are expensive. You could also check the wiring to the switch. It travels from under the dash, through the door. My guess is that if it's loose, it's where the door hinges. Look for frayed wires.

Passenger window operates intermittingly. When it


The problem could be in the master window switch on the drivers door, or the window motor could be going out, but most likely the cause is a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle, and the broken wire is making intermittent contact because the door is being opened and closed all the time, and sometimes the wire will touch and make the connection and that is why it only works sometimes.

Try this the next time that the window stops working, hold the window switch down in whatever direction that you want the window to go (up or down) and while holding the switch in that position open and close the drivers side door and move or wiggle around the weather boot that contains the wiring that is between the door and the body of the vehicle, and do the same for the passenger side door, if the window starts working while you are holding down the window switch and opening and closing the door or moving around the weather boot between the door and the body of the vehicle, then there is a broken wire or even wires that will need to be repaired.

The broken wire can be on either the passenger side, or most likely on the drivers side, and if you do find a broken wire or wires, then you should repair the wires by soldering them well and use the same gage wire if you need to lengthen the wire to repair it successfully, and do not use a wire connector if you want the repair to last.

Interior lights stay on and all power windows inop


I had the same problem.....there is a rubber boot that covers the wires going from your door to the body of the car.... the heavier gage wires eventually crack from the opening and closing of the door....you need to cut the rubber and get to the wires inside and splice them back together....the first time i had this problem my windows did not work...then a few months later my interior lights would not go out....different wire this time ...easy fix....
