Windows/Locks...help

I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and I love it. But recently it started having issues with my windows and locks not working manually from any door inside. I have a driver window stuck half way up and can't get it back up. Any ideas guys...I may be a girl but I am usually pretty good at this stuff.

Have a look in the drivers door boot, where all the wiring passes from the body to the door. Many times one of the wires break, because the thick wires are too stiff and after many times flexing they just break. Normally also the interior lights will stay full bright on as well and will only go out with the instrument dimm switch in full dimm.

Good, that will probably solve your problem. I had it on my jeep and just soldered the two ends together as a temporary solution. That was two years ago and i forgot about it . Ofcourse best would be to change the whole wire for one with the same gauge, but more flexible.
