I'm starting to tackle some of the electrical issues on my '97 Cherokee Sport.
1) I have power windows, and the switch stops working when you open the door. I'm thinking loose connection, but the switch ALWAYS works when the door is closed, and NEVER works when the door is open. Pass. side works great. Is it a bad ground in the harness i.e. the connection gets grounded through the latch striker when its closed? Any ideas where to start?
2) Looked at the fuses for some of the problem areas, like power mirrors and rear defroster that doesn't function. I replaced the missing fuse and now the defroster works, but still no power mirrors. Could this be related to the drivers door switch issues?
3) The courtesy lights all work with the headlight switch, and the dome lights work with the rear doors. BUT they do not work when the hatch is open, or when either of the front doors are open. Don't even know where to begin there.
