Front passenger side power window not working

I've searched a bit on the forums, and it seems like there's a specific order in which the power windows work. All of my windows work except for the front passenger side. I do hear a "click" when I hit the button, but no movement. Is that enough info to isolate the problem?

You are trying to control it from the passenger door or the driver door?

At random times my passenger window wont be controlled from the driver door initially. If I lean over and hit the switch from the passenger door it will work and from then on I can control it from the driver door. I have no idea why, but thats been my experience.
Another problem I had was with the wire harness that comes from driver door into the jeep. Some of my windows were working intermitantly and sometimes depending on how far open or closed my driver door was. I peeled the boot back that covers the harness between the door and the frame and found a bunch of cracked and naked wires and even one completely broken.

Check those

Nope, it won't move from either switch. I can hear it clicking inside the door panel when I hit the switch, but no movement. I took off the panel and checked the harness and the boot, and they all look fine.

There is, however, a 3rd harness that's not connected to anything. One harness is the big one (12 wires or something), a second one connects to the power mirrors, and then there's a 3rd one that I can't find where it's supposed to go. It's a 2-wire harness, it comes from somewhere around the exterior handle location, and runs toward the frame, but just stops and is hanging there, taped to the other wires.

LOL, I was looking through the service manual to see if I could find what that 3rd connector is for... Unfortunately, all I found was a picture of the darn thing, taped exactly how it is in my door:



I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with my problem though.

Go here and request a build sheet for your Jeep from Chrysler
It likely won't be 100% accurate because Chrysler recycles their build codes (or so I've heard) but it's a great starting point!

They'll email you back pretty quickly

You can verify your voltages, and if you hear the click from either switch I would think you are getting power. You can disconnect the motor connector, operate your switches while backprobing the connector on the harness side and see if you have 12v. If so the motor may just be jamned either internally or the regulator may be jammed up somehow. Pull the door panel off snd poke around abit. Take your time when releasing jeep connectors because the lock tabs break easily. Will help where I can.

Thanks for the help. I googled backprobing. I have a multimeter. Lemme see if I have this right. In order to check voltages, I'll insert the negative needle into the ground (black) wire port, and the positive needle into the other wires - correct?

Correct, the little pins used sewing work good.
