03 Jeep Overlander WJ Very Strange Electrical Issues

I tried to do a search but w/these problems I don't even know where to begin. I would really appreciate your help.

Here is my latest problem w/my jeep from HELL.

My windows will not go up or down
Dome light stays on unless turned off manually
Light on driver interior door comes on when I try to put the rear window up or down.
Mirror's don't work
Memory for seats does not work
All controls on drivers door do not work.

could it just be a wiring issue or do you think its the whole controller?
This just happened out of the blue no problem and then all of these just happened at once. Please help!

My vote would go to faulty wiring. Have u had anything done to your WJ recently?

Nope not a thing. And I just found out the other day my fiance was driving it and the windows would not go up but after he messed w/it a couple times they did. So I think you are right w/the wiring now I just hope he can fix it.

The only thing that these things all have in common is the battery/ alternator. I just dont see why those things would cause that to happen. You might wanna clean your battery terminals. Seems to help out sooo much when you do.

It sounds to me like you have a broken wire in your doors wireing harness.
Most likely the ground from what I have read here many times.

Try wiggleing the wires in the door frame where they go into the drivers door while trying to raise the window and see what happens.
