    This may sound silly but humor me. Clean and retighten your battery cables. Let me know if this helps please.

    Ok clean up the battery post. And it help with the interior lights staying on. I also check the cables going from inside to the door did find a wire that ripped. So I fix it but the driver side window went down but didn't go up also when driving the abs and brake light come in and radio shuts off when it does it at night lights dim really bad. I'm really lost at this point

    And all this is since you cleaned up and tightened the battery posts??? Because that would cause everything you mention except the door/window issues.

    However, if it is still happening you likely have a shorting wire somewhere. As you already know of an issue with the wires to the door...I would look more closely at THOSE wires first. As a test, you might try disconnecting the wires to the door and then test driving. If the problem goes away...BINGO! Worth a try I think.


    EDIT!! OOPS!, I suggested disconnecting the door...my bad. I was not paying enough attention. I am used to doors that come off and are easily disconnected. Sorry for the poorly though out idea. :(

    I had a problem like that in my 2004 grand cherokee. In between the door and your jeep there is a rubber tube where the wires go in side that there is a ground wire that had broken. I took the tube off and added a section of wire. Since then I haven't had any more problems with it. But my front passenger door did it later on down the road.

    Ok. The issues with the abs and brake light and radio shutting down were caused by a bad battery. Had it test it and it was bad installed a new one and problem solve with that however. Driver window still will only roll down and not up took a volt tester and check to see if it was the main switch and it gets power power lock button won't lock only unlocks and window won't go up only down check all fuses. And wires indoor jams. Anyone have any suggestions what else it can be before having to have to take it to dealer

    Question? The window could be either the switch itself, or the motor. Can you give 12v power straight to the wire that supplies power to the motor up? I'm assuming that the lock button your referring to is the driver side. Will the lock button on the passenger side control the locks? If so, then most likely the lock button on the driver side is bad.

    Some cars you can purchase these buttons individually for a nominal amount like my old '93 chevy Camaro's were $12. Some cars like my 2010 Chevy truck you have to purchase the whole button control panel and for me that was like $120.

    Yes If I take 12v. The regulator will work and window goes up. The lock button is working fine but as soon as I put the window down. It stops unlocking. And of course window will not go back up. I dony believe iys nethier the regulator. Or the switch. I could be wrong I'm just. Lost. At this point
