Windows will not work

I have a 08 grand Cherokee at cold start my windows will not go down until it gets warmer. It can take from 5 min to 20 min depending on the temp outside. The lights in the switch will not turn on until they work also but the door lock and the mirror controlled that are on the same switch work fine. I have replaced the drivers side switching thinking that was the problem but still nothing.
Any help would be much appreciated

Every once in a while I can't roll mine up or down. Any light to shed on this would be great for me too.

I had the same issue with driver controls for pass window up. Sometime it would work sometimes it wouldn't. Took the window switches module out, took it apart. It uses a weird paddle system to rock the contacts together. Took it all apart and sprayed with contact cleaner, took the switches off of the PCB board and reseated the contacts. Been a month with no issues.

Exact same issue. I'll try that out.
