Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and my passenger window popped off track so I cant roll it up. I took the door panel off, but I dont know how to get it back on the track. I did naively expect to be able to see better, but the door has metal frame work in the way and I really dont know what I'm looking for.

Search for window regulator. I just replaced both my front window regulators. I believe I got both as a set for less than $100. The company even has YouTube videos showing how to put them in.
Anyone can do it. Just a couple basic tools and a little time. I wouldn’t try putting it back on track cause my worry was the window would drop and shatter. So tape it up til you can find the regulator.

If it slipped the track, something broke inside the door.
You have to take the door panel off and see what the problem is.

I had same problem it is a ground wire broken in the harness rubber boot between dthe driver door. Peel back the rubber that protects wires and you will find broken ground wire(black) add a piece of wire solder and wrap with electrical tape put rubber boot back into door everything should work.

Look to see if you can see mounting holes for the glass you may have to reach in and wiggle the glass around if that does not work than the window regulator may need to be replaced

There’s a wire harness and plug that go thru a flexible boot between the body and the front doors to control the switch clusters on the doors.
Over time opening the doors will affect these components.

  1. Check fuse # 8
  2. Make sure the plug (referenced above) is secured.
  3. Peel back the boot carefully, and check the wires.
(In my Jeep, I found the black wire broken and the light blue w/blue stripe wire cracked. I fixed them on the drivers side, and the mirrors and the locks now work. My windows are still not working, so I’m going to check the passenger side.)
Good luck!

Ahhhh....had the same problem. This was a challange for me. I discovered that an ancher on the window where the cable connects had broken of. I was going to buy and new assembly but it was a 170 bucks. So I took the window out...there is a pin that holds the window to the assembly, once you remove the pin the window slide out the top and the assembly can slide through the door opening. I cleaned the broken piece of plastic that the cable was attached to and used (very important) JB weld. It's a bonding product you can get at any auto store. I glued the piece together and covered it like it was frosting (it sets fast) and put the whole thing together again. This was a year ago and it still works. 6 buck but there was a bit of a learning curve. It works though!

Passenger rear window will not roll up or down


You have phillips or torx screws to take out. Some may be hidden behind plugs. 1-take all seeable screws oit. 2-use a flat screwdriver and carefully pry all plastic clips between the door panel and the door body. Panel should lift off unless all screws are not removed.

I have the exact same problem on a Jeep Grand Cherokee 2004. The rear passenger window rolls down only from the rear passenger window and won't go up or down from the front. It has to be in the wiring because the problem was intermittent initially and a new window motor does the exact same thing. If you figured it out or have the wiring diagram please let me know.

How do I remove door panel to get to the motor ?


Ive yet seen a jeep window come off track. sounds like your window regulator is broke but hopefully im wrong. anyways, remove all the screws some have cover over them, just remove the cover and youll see some sort of screw. Then pull out and try not to breake the plastic clips that pop into door. its pretty easy once you just look at if for a min. let me know if you have anymore questions about this
