97 zj electrical (pass. windows)

bought a 97 zj grand cherokee 4.0 had all kinds of electrical fixed all with the exception of my power windows when i got the jeep the tan (main) wire going to the front dooe switches was dead and all fuses were good so i gave it power and now have power to both sides and the driver side works fine but not getting anything from the passenger side it like the switch is still dead but i checked with a test light and the main has power but its the only one is there another that is supposed to have power on the passenger front window switch. i was told that there is a hot wire that jumps from the driverside to the passenger side is this true if so does anyone know what color it is im stumped or is there anything else i can test

According to the 1998 ZJ FSM, the power windows are powered by a 30 AMP circuit breaker, and not a fuse. The jeep circuit breakers are plug and play, and if you have a bad one, you can pick up one inexpensively from Autozone.

If I were you, the first thing I would do is undo any wiring changes you made, and start your trouble shooting with the circuit breaker cavity.

Did you check with your meter to confirm you have power on the "hot" side of the circuit breaker cavity before you swapped out the breaker? Also, make sure that the connectors that the circuit breaker plugs into are not loose or corroded, and are making good connection.
