Jeep WJ passenger side electrical problem ?

I just purchased a 2004 Limited Jeep Grand Cherokee and the passenger and behind the passenger seats side power windows and power locks won't work. Whenever I try to use the remote to lock or unlock it doesn't work either. The remote won't even unlock the driver side or anything either, any suggestion on what it could be? It is extremely frustrating.

Check the wiring inside the boot going from the front passenger door into the quarter panel. Chances are, you have cracked or broken wiring. I know the driver's side has an orange wire, not sure if the passenger side is the same, but that orange wire is the power for the door, and if your key fob isn't unlocking the doors, I'd say that you don't have any power running to the module in the passenger door. The module I am talking about is what the key fob communicates with to unlock the doors.
That's why you can unlock it from farther away on that side.

Mine did the same thing and it was a (if i remember correctly) purple and brown wire broke in the rubber boot between the passenger door and door frame.

Buy a Hybrid... My Jeep needs the gas!

Just like bees said just open the passenger door take a screwdriver and carefully pull the black rubber boot back. careful though there are plastic retainer clips on the body frame and the door. They release by two tabs top and bottom of the retainer. Also if you fix the wire use butt connectors and heat shrink to cover the butt connectors.
