Wj 2004 WJ Door Locks, Windows, Interior Light Trouble

I have a 2004 WJ GCL and I first experienced my driver side door lock not working at all. The next day the windows stop working then later that same day the interior light's stay on unless you set the interior dimmer switch to the off position. The keyless remote pad works on all the doors except for the driver side door lock. It will not open or lock the driver side at all. I do not have a alarm system on it. If any one has any information that you could share I would be grateful. Thanks

Check the driver's side door's wiring harness for broken wires.

I had the exact same problem and it was a wire in the door. Fixing the wire only fixed the door locking problem though. not sure why.. but when i pulled the SKIM fuse (#7 i think) the fuse looked fine.. but when i placed it back into the fuse box, i heard some clicking under the dash (like something was turning on) and then i started the jeep and everything was fine after that it was on my 2004 Laredo 4.0

here is the thread I started on it.. hope this helps!

Will it worked! I can't thank you all enough. It was a black wire that that was broken into. Once I repaired it everthing went back to normal. Windows, locks, and light s are working fine.
Thanks again and hope that I might be able to return the favor sometime.

I joined this site yesterday so I could access all of the info here, and after doing so and reading last night and this morning I am having a happy Easter. My windows, door locks and remote lock release are all working just as they should after finding a broken orange/white 12awg in the rubbber boot going to the FR door. Repaired this and life is good, looks like the wire is too heavy a gauge of the strands in the wire and they won't flex so they break nice and clean in one spot.
Thanks for all the good info.https://www.jeepforum.com/ubb/cheers2.gif
