    I have a 2004 grand cherokee
    None of the controls on the drivers window controller work. I.E. windows, door locks, and mirrors. None of the other window controllers work either. I have changed the controller to no avail.

      I had this problem, but it ended up being a broken ground wire between door and car.

      which switch did you change the drivers master switch? what would be done to diagnose this is turn the key to on, remove the mater switch and using a volt meter test if the master switch has power coming into it. if es then the problem is probably the master switch. if there is no power there then the problem is probably the relay's or fuses. check the owners manual it will show you exactly where relays and fuses are

    Why doesn't my A/C blow air?
    My car is equipped with infrared duel-zone climate control (right and left) A/C and heat. The blower has been stopping intermittently and now won't come on at all. I can feel a little A/C trickling out when the windows are cracked so the compressor must be working. ...

      For the door locks, do you hear the lock trying to go up? Or no sound at all? If you hear the lock mechanism trying to go up but it doesnt, then it is stuck, removing the door panel is needed. Now if you cant hear the mechanism at all then its a wiring problem, you have to do the same steps in trouble shooting the power window.

      Always check the fuse first before you do the dirty job (ok a little bit dirty) of replacing stuff in your car

      The most likely causes of this would be a faulty switch, a bad power window motor, a fault in the wiring circuit between the door switch and the door motor, or a wiring fault in the motor power or ground circuit.

      To diagnose this kind of fault, start with the switch. Many power window door switches simply pry out of their fixtures in the door panel. Using a flathead screwdrivr to slip under one edge of the switch, then gently pry up to loosen the switch. If the switch doesn’t budge, it will probably be necessary to remove the door panel to check it. (I know its kinda tedious).

      Once the switch is out, or the door panel loose so you can get to the wiring under it, use a voltmeter to check for voltage at the switch when the ignition is on. No voltage? Then the fault is in the power supply circuit wiring or a wiring connector somewhere between the fuse panel and the door switch.

      If the switch is reciving voltage, but the door motor does not do squat when the switch is pressed, the problem could be a bad switch or a bad power window motor. Use a fused jumper wire to bypass the switch and route power directly to the motor. If the window now moves, the problem is a bad switch. Replace the switch. If the motor does nothing, the problem is a bad motor. Replace the power window motor. (Ka-ching Ka-ching)

      If there is no voltage to the switch, the problem may be a broken wire in the bundle of wires that pass between the door and door jam. This wiring bundle undergoes a lot of flexing every time the door is opened and closed, and it is not unusual for wires to break or short out in this area. Open the door and visually inspect the wiring harness that goes between the door and door jam for chaffing or signs of damage. Try wiggling the harness while pressing the power window switch (key on) to see if the window works or works intermittently (which would tell you the fault is in this area).

      If you hear motor noise (humming or buzzing) from inside the door, but the window does not move when you press the switch, the problem is not the switch, motor or wiring. The problem is a broken window mechanism inside the door.

      Some power windows use a scissors linkage with a crank mechanism to raise and lower the window. If the linkage is rusty, jammed or broken, it can prevent the window from moving and/or cause it to stick (up or down).

      Other power windows use a plastic chain or strip to raise and lower the window linkage. Over time the plastic window drive becomes brittle, and cracks or breaks. This prevents the window from working. This type of failure often happens during cold weather, especially if ice has frozen the window shut and the motor tries to force it open. The fix is to remove the inner door panel and replace the broken plastic chain or drive strip.

      Some windows use a steel cable to raise and lower the window. If the cable breaks or the drive mechanism inside the motor strips, the window can fail to move. With this type of setup, you usually have to replace the entire window regulator mechanism. Same for gear drive regulators.

      If the window lowered fine, but fails to come back up, it may be off the track inside the door. This will require removing the door panel to see if the window tracks or guide bushings are broken.

      Once you removed the panel cover did you see the plunger? If i was having a problem in finding the sensor, i would just cut the wires leading to the plunger.

      Thanks for the information,although I did'nt know about or even notice the plunger,I will remove the panel again and try and locate the plunger and cut the wire.Is there a specific area on the lift gate door where that plunger might be,it would be very helpful .Really do appreciate the information and just want to say many "THANKS",Jerry(Tx.).

      It is possible that the switch in the driver side is defective or the connector is loose or disconnected. Try to remove your door panel and check the condition of your switch.

      It is possible that the drain hose of your evaporator is clogged or missing (if it is water but if it is coolant that’s another story). Check the condition of your evaporator hose.
