Power Windows/Locks etc not working!

Asked by Apr 22, 2017 at 03:41 PM about the 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My locks/windows/AC/temperature guage
wee not working.  I checked the boot in
between the driver door and the cab and
found a 10g black ground wire in half.  It
was being held on by the outer insulated
layer.  I cut about 1 inch back on both
ends, added a small (about 3 inches long)
extra 10g ground wire to both ends.  
Twisted the ends together and capped
them.  Electrical taped the caps to the
wires so it doesn't cause anymore issues.  
Disconnected the battery for 20 minutes.  
Reconnected the battery and everything
worked perfectly again.  I also checked the
passenger door for any wire issues just to
be safe.  Lord only knows I couldn't deal
with no AC or power windows in the hot
weather again.

Had that problem on a 2004 Jeep Grand Cheroke. Also the inside light wouldn't go out and killed the battery. It was the broken wire in the boot between the drivers door and the body. It is a comon problem with Jeeps. I heard one dealer wanted $1000 to fix the problem. It is that wire you mentioned.

Yeah the black wire was completely torn in half. I just added a small section and capped it off. At first it didn't fix the problem then I disconnected the battery for 20 min. Then everything worked perfectly again.
