newbie with elecrical ?
2004 Grand Cherokee.Pulled every fuse out today looking for issue on trailer lite connection.No blown fuse detected.Now the windows don't work,door locks don't work,side mirrors don't work.Air bag and seatbelt lights are on all the time.Any ideas? they all worked fine before checking all the spade fuses.

Welcome to the garage.
Did you check the fuses in the power distribution center under the hood? Fuse 12 (50A) is feeding power windows/locks/mirrors.

Re: newbie with elecrical ?
Ok,I just tried disconnecting the positive.That wasn't it.I tried swapping fuses.That wasn't it.I did also notice the door lock n passenger side works.Also twice this morning the power sunroof opened by itself. :confused:

Re: newbie with elecrical ?
The sunroof opened by itself without any input? Was that during trouble shooting, or where you driving? Only the power lock on passengers side works, or windows as well? Both front and rear passengers locks? Not the drivers side rear lock?

Re: newbie with elecrical ?
It just could be a coincidence, but no power locks, no windows and no mirror operation is often caused by a broken wire in the drivers side door boot. With this normally also the interior lights won't dim, only when putting the dim switch in off position. Doesn't hurt at least to have a look inside the drivers door boot.

Nothing works on all 4 doors except the door lock on passenger front.Not sure about the interior lites not dimming.I will check that out.The airbag and seatbelt lites both on still,also.The map lites do turn on.The sunroof opened as soon as i started it twice yesterday.Not today,tho.

I am going to pull fuse #12 out of the box underhood,after work just to see if there is power to the fuse.

Re: newbie with elecrical ?
Well,after making sure there was power to fuse #12 under the hood,I checked the (infamous) black wire.It had been repaired already and had come out of the connector.There was also a large orange w/ white stripe wire broken.I repaired both and everything is working now.Thanks for the input guys........BUT the airbag and seatbelt lights are still on all the time.:confused:

Re: newbie with elecrical ?
Both Airbag and Seatbelt indication lights are switched by the Airbag Control Module (ACM). Check the fuses 32 and 33 on the junction block under the steering wheel, both feed the ACM.

Re: newbie with elecrical ?
I just took fuses #32 &#33 out of the yellow case and put back in the fuseblock.Cha-ching.She's all cured.Thanks for all your help Frango :thumbsup:
