Wj Driver Door Electrical Problem

Just bought a 2002 WJ limited v8 and starting to sort out the little things it needs.

One issue is that the driver door switches do not work when opened at certain angles.

Lets say the door opens about 70 and the mid resting point is around 50. When closed, the switches all work fine, and they work when opened till about 25. Then fail to work till about 45 and fail to work the rest of the way.

I'm not sure if its some pinched wires, a loose harness connector, or what.

Any info would be great.

Broken wires in the rubber door boot. Use the search function and you'll find many threads on it because it's a common issue.

It's not just the connector. There's a ground wire that runs through that conduit from the door into the car. No biggie to put back together. I personally like to splice a small piece of wire in to legthen it to give it some extra leeway.
