Power Windows Broken? Short?

I just noticed that my power windows won't roll down with any of the switched (drivers included), except the front passenger side. I can't find anything else that has stopped working. Keyless entry, power locks, power mirrors, it all works, except the power windows. I couldn't find a fuse for them, but there probally is. Can anyone give me some advice? '96 GC Laredo (ZJ)

It's really weird...

Instead of a fuse, there's a circuit breaker to the right of the glovebox, in the door jamb area behind a plastic cover. Your owners manual will tell you which one. But I'm betting it's bad wiring at the driver's door connector. Pull back the rubber boot and have a look. If you see broken wires, fix 'em. Make sure the torx screw holding the connector is snug. Good luck!

Banged on the controls a few times...it works...for now. I'll open it up and check the wiring...do you know, by chance, what size torx screw it is?

You may as well invest in a cheap set of torx screwdrivers..
From T10 to T45 you will need them all eventually...

To the switch? I dunno - I guess remove the inner door panel.

To the door jamb connector? See my first reply above.
