Power windows and door locks

My 2006 commander developed a strange problem....the only power window switches that will not work are the ones for the front windows on the driver's door control panal. Mirrow control stopped working too. all other window control switches in the vehicle work fine. The electric door locks also do not work on the drivers side. I replaced the entire switch box in the door and that did not solve the problem. Any help here??? I figured if it was fuses no windows would not work

I was trying to figure out if the windows and locks are on different fuse circuts...not sure Just seems funny that the switch consol in the drivers door only has one plug for the window control and the rear switches work but not the front two on the same plug...That is why I thought it was the switch box itself and replaced it. Figured maybe some water or something got down there and shorted it out along with the door lock switch and mirrow control. But no luck

They might be on the same fuse but different relay's. Grab you multimeter and start taking some measurements you should be able to track the problem down. Make sure the harness is still plugged in that goes threw the door unlikely it came undone there a PITA to unplug but you never know. Since you lost power or communication with just that switch panel it's a bad relay or the line is bad. Tracing the line with your meter should be easy enough. I sent you a PM.

Power Window Issue

I am new to this forum, I bought a used 2006 commander back in Novemeber. If I had known then, what I know now, there is absolutely no way in this world I would have bought it. The first issue I had was the water on the passenger side floorboard. I am a do it yourselfer, so I found this site and dug in. The second thing was the navrec system disc not reading. The lights behind the climate control and also the window switch issue. I have resolved all except the window issue. I have both door panels off and nearly all of the wiring is pulled on the front end. The complete harness system is actually on my didning room table so I can see if there are any cut wires. Still no answers... I will go at it again tomorrow and let people know what I find. The other issues I had, feel free to ask what I had to do. I will completely rip this commander apart to find the root cause of anything.

I have a 2007 Commander and as of right now the only two doors that will unlock are the drivers door and the rear window. the other three door and the hatch will not unlock. The two that are working will lock/unlock from the driver door, passenger door and the remote. Any ideas????

My '06 Commander had the same problem with the Driver's side door contols. The fault was in the door's wiring harness. The wires running through the dust boot into the car continuously flex with door operation and over time the wires break. I have experienced this problem on my '97 XJ as well. A new harness is ~ $70 if you don't want to tear the old one out and make some splices.

With high confidence - its the door wiring harness. You have a broken wire or perhaps wires inside the dust boot.
