Electric window stopped working

2004 jeep grand cherokee. I've read several posts where all windows stopped working, but in this case only the driver's side rear window won't work (either from driver seat or back seat). Had the wiring harness in the driver door replaced a couple of years ago. Would like to fix myself, where to start?

Could be the regulator.

Enter Make, model, and year, find the video on how to replace the window regulator.
It's a start and once you have the door panel off, you should be able to determine what's wrong.
Good luck.

Also, simple check- pull the boot that houses the wires between the B pillar and the rear door. Inspect the wires. My right rear did the same thing while on a business trip. Several wires looked like they had been cut clean- either pinched or just wore through quite cleanly. I still need to get in and fix them (maybe tomorrow), but it was easy to temporarily make the connection and try the window switch, which worked great.

ditto,, happened to me 3 times. It was the Orange wire. All windows stopped working and dome light wouldn't turn off.

I have an 04, and I've had the darn harness wire plug end loosen up 3X over the past 6 years. Mine loosens up under the driverside kick panel, killing the power to the door. Try to reach in there too and wiggle the harness while pressing the window switch. If your window regulator is cooked, we carry new ones. Here's a link to them on our website for yah.

You guys were spot on! It was a broken wire in the harness in the drivers door - I didn't think that would be the case because I had a bunch of wiring in there replaced about 2 years ago. Thanks for all the help!
