1996 grand cherokee limited V8 65000 Miles

I am trying to dianose the problem with my wifes jeep.
Sometimes the windows do not go up or down, the memory for the side mirrows and the seat does not work any more the radio will not turn off, driving at night the dash lights just go dime or completly out. The door locks sometimes work other times don't work. the right blinker will work but sometimes will bling very fast other times nomral. Sometimes I can get the door locks and the windows to work by pounding on the inside of the driver door.

Everything points to the body control modrual but I am not sure does anyone else have this type of problem?

Please help
Jack

if banging on the door sometimes helps getting the locks and windows to work i would try and swap out the master window switch which contains relays for all the windows and the door locks. should be able to pick one up pretty cheap like $45 at the junkyard.

Re: 1996 grand cherokee limited V8 65000 Miles

the problem with electrical issues are they are one step at a time and not always all related. so to try and guess a common cause for would be crazy. 1st take care of the windows/locks replace the master control switch in the drivers door. im not sure on the ZJ but i know other cars the power mirror control is in the master control switch as well. so that might take care of a few things. swap that out and let us know what still remains as an issue and we can go from there.

The power doors/locks intermittently working are a common zj problem. The wiring harnesses that pass through the body to the doors get brittle or chafe causing shorts. I bet if you go through those you'll find bare wires which will be the cause of your problem
