Passenger window won't go up!

Yeeeup, my front right passenger window won't go up. I've tried both controls, driverside and passenger side and nothing. Played around with window lock to see if that was the problem, and it doesn't seem to be. Any ideas? When the A/C is on, and I push the button, fan seems to go down a bit, so it would seem it is still getting power...

Thanks.

A little more info would help, like is it a 2 door or 4 door? If it's a 4 door, are all 3 passenger windows showing the same problem? And what year is the jeep? A lot of people have had problems with the lockout switch on the newer cherokees, myself included... From what I've gathered, you can replace the switch assembly for $160 or something rediculous like that, or bypass the switch so the other windows are always unlocked.

Also, it could be the window regulator, but that would be more evident (like you still hear motor noise but the window won't go up). The stock regulator is a piece of crap on the newer cherokees. My driver and front passenger regulators both broke, and you can find some more info about that problem on the forums too.

If you need more info about either of those repairs on a newer cherokee let me know because I've done them :-)

I'd say it's probably the window regulator. To make mine temporarily stay up I pushed it up and clamped the post it slides on with a vice grips.

My driver door window has this problem if I run it down too far. Open your door and with your finger pushing the button in the up direction, slam the door. Or with your finger on the button, punch the door panel right where the motor is on the inside.

my '88 started the same thing a few months ago. Turns out one wire into the motor was loose. Pull the door panel off and have a look. Good luck.

Simular problem on my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Larendo.

My window actually went down and stayed down. The story goes... We pulled into a parking lot, closed the passenger door and watched the window go down all by itself. Drove home with the window down in 100 degree heat and decided to fix it the next day.

The problem was that the upper window track cable pulled through the plastic track guide. This is what I did to fix it, photo instructions: http://www.atthetipwebs.com/technolo...2004jeepgc.htm

Hope this helps.

My 2004 4 door Grand Cherokee's left passenger window would not go down when operating from the driver's panel, so I tried the door button of the faulty window and it did. However, it won't go up. I tried to see if it was just stuck, so pressed both UP and DOWN settings. No go. It won't go down any further, but it won't go up either.
Someone tried pressing the door button while trying to PULL UP to at least get it up temporarily, but it still doesn't work. Now, I don't hear the click OR the movement sound.
Whatta' ya think? Thx!

Any luck?

I'm curious if anyone has found the issue to this. I just picked up a 98 Cherokee Sport (4 door) and it's right front window won't roll up. Rolls down fine, rolls up fine when putting voltage direct to the motor. I've opened up both the master and right door switches, cleaned the switches with DeOxIT, re-soldered all the contacts, pulled the door boots looking for any broken wires. Still no joy... All the other windows work fine, so I'm not thinking that it's a lock out switch issue.

same problem

I can roll my window down but not up. Ive swapped out the controls switches, the window regulator and the entire wiring harness twice. I also stripped the wiring harness down to check every wire for cracks or breaks but i they appear perfectly fine.

Has anyone found out what the problem was on their jeeps? thanks

Window Contacts on Switch not making.

New to me 97 JX, lots of cobbling.
I was having trouble with passenger window. Weird, some times not working from driver or passenger. Sometimes, it would roll down from driver, but not back up. Passenger would not roll up, but not down. Pulled both side switch controls and re soldered all joints, still no work, but some times. Thought it was a broke wire, but could not find one. With the sw covers still off the switches, started testing switches. One contact point on drivers was not making, could short and both windows work. Sanded point and all is fine. Not sure how the drivers contact keep the other side from working but it does. I ordered New Driver side sw, figured other contacts will fail. Only $22., Passenger, far simpler, twice that.

The most common power window problem for the XJ Cherokee ( and probably any other Jeep ) is wire harness damage at the drivers door, inside or near the rubber boot at the door hinges. Inspect and test the wire harness for chafed wire insulation, broken/damaged wires, and for failed wire splices. Once you have confirmed a sound wire harness if there are still issues, look to the drivers door master switch. There can be failure of the child lock-out switch or failure of any of the other switch assemblies. If neither of the previous issues are present, test and inspect the problem power window regulator for proper functions. Directly apply 12 volts to the window motor to test its function. Inspect and test the wire harness and door switch in the problem door.


The troubleshooting process is simply a logical progression of inspecting and testing starting with the most common and most likely cause of the malfunction.

In my case, it turned out to be the master window switch on the drivers. Even after I re-soldered and cleaned used De-Ox-It on the contacts. I bought a new switch on Amazon and it's been fine ever since.(nearly a year now) Look for switch from Issyzone on Amazon, only $37.
