Default 99 xj windows only work from the drivers side

Before you say anything, yes I tried the window lock on the drivers side switch panel.
None of the windows work unless you use the driver controls.
Any ideas?

probably the passenger side switch is bad you would have to check to see if there is power going into the switch and then see if power is going out of the switch to the window motor on the side not working

I could be wrong but is the lock switch working not just that you have it unlocked seems more likely that it could be a problem then all three other window switches?

Default It's Not Your Window Lock

There are a few threads about this already. I had the same problem with my 2000 XJ. This is the thread i followed and helped me out http://www.cherokeeforum.com/f2/wind...working-13287/

That's the one.. Try splicing and soldering a piece of wire instead of the paper clip (if it works) it's far more reliable.

I just thought the other 3 switches were for looks. mine is the same I just tell people the windows are locked, when they say will you unlock them, I say "nope".

I had the same problem and had to replace the whole drivers side switch panel. I think I got it off of Ebay for like $70. Once I hooked it up everything worked like a charm.

Driver-side panel is considered the "master" panel. 9 times out of 10 it's the problem. Common on 98+ XJ and near all WJ.
