Wj Passenger side: power windows/ locks and rear hatch won't unlock

Well I'm lost drive the wj up to the house at this point I could roll the pass side windows down. I parked as my father exited the passenger side he hit the door lock switch, no big deal right... Well I went to leave about 30 min later and was unable to unlock the jeep with my key fob, so I used the key. Once inside I startd the jeep and went to roll the windows down, the drivers side front and rear work fine but neither of the passenger side had no response to either the driver or passenger side swithches. I then found that I could not unlock any of the doors except for the drivers door. I cannot get the rear window or the hatch to unlock either. Iv checked fuses had the door panels off checked all wiring and plugs for the driver and passenger doors. As of now I'm completely lost there is too much wiring and cumputers to go bad in this thing! Anyone hav ne ideas or pointers for me. I'm bout to introduce a can of petro and a lighter to the BI**H. Let me kno if u can help everything is appreciated.

Just had the same situation with my 02 WJ and dome light won't go out without turning it off at steering column. Did you ever figure it out, if so I would greatly appreciate filling me in.

Found out that the ground wire (black) in passenger door wire harness broke. Fixed it until last month the repair broke. Just spliced in a section of new 12g stranded wire.

Yep, just did this repair on both sides of my 99 WJ it appears that only the power and ground wires are the ones that break(tan color and black) they are a heavier gauge wire and seem to break off because they are stiffer than the others. On the drivers side, both of my wires were broke completely in half, just like the pic above. But on the passenger side, my ground(black) wire was broken inside the insulation, but not completely broke in half. I had to tug on the wire a little bit to stretch the insulation in the broken spot to find it.
