Power Window problems of the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
33 problems associated with power window have been reported for the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Power Window problem #1
My wife and I own two Jeep Grand Cherokees, a '99 the an '04. In 1999, Jeep changed the design of their Grand Cherokees and one design change poses a safety risk to passengers in the back seats, especially young children. Models produced starting in 1999 allow for the windows in the back seats to roll down, leaving a gap between the window and the frame on that part of the window closest to the rear seat passenger. The 1998 Jeep allowed for the window to be rolled down and the gap between the window and the frame was at the front of the window, furthest from the passenger. On several occassions we have rolled down the windows and my children (ages 2 and 4) , attracted by having the wind hit their hand, have stuck their fingers between this gap area. When the windows are rolled up, their fingers get crushed between the window and the frame. I have previously contacted Jeep about this problem and they were only concerned about was whether my children's fingers were broken. Their solution, use the window locks on the driver's console. However, that does not solve the problem. I can only guarantee their hands are not in the windows by turning around and continuing to look as I roll the windows up. This is distracting and not a safe course of action. But this was their recommendation. My wife and I did not pay tens of thousands of dollars for vehicles that cause pain to our children. Whether they have broken their fingers is irrelevent and really shows a lack of responsibility by Jeep. I spoke to representatives of Jeep and they are well aware of this problem. From our conversation, only if my chidren suffered broker fingers would they compensate us and/or correct the problem. Apparently, no broken bones means its not their problem. I would think a company would rather be proactive and not reactive. (the date below is when the latest incident occured but this has occured multiple times. ). This issue happened on 05/11/04.

Power Window problem #13
The vehicle involved is a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1J4GX48S44_. Rear passenger (electric) window fell down and would not go back up.

I was called the next day and informed that I would have to pay another $98 to further diagnose the problem. When I told the dealership I would not pay anymore money because of my warranty, they disconnected the switch and rolled the window up instead. This problem remains unresolved. It was Feb. 28, 2007 when this power window issue occurred.

Power Window problem #16
The vehicle involved is a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I have a 2004 Jeep cherokee, my drivers side window made a bang noise (sounded like someone hit the door with a bat) and the window slid down into the door! it scared me! I took in the next day to get it fixed. . . . $400!! and the man told me he's had several of these come in and he's had to replace. I think Jeep should recall them and fix them. I've looked out online and there are several complaints about the plastic parts in the door that work the window. It was Aug. 27, 2007 when this power window issue occurred.
Power Window problem #17
The car is a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. VIN of the vehicle was 1J4GW48S74_. Passenger side window regulator broke - this type of part should not break on a 2004 vehicle. As I read online there are many many complaints about this problem. Apperently there are so many problems with this part, my local auto-zone store could not even order the part from their supplier. Jeep dealers want in excess of $400 dollars for parts and labor to fix this. Major incoveince considering my vehichle cannot be used now for at least a week and I will need to take a limo to and from the airport at an expense of $270 roundtrip until the part gets delivered. This simply is not a part that should fail especially in a car that is only 3. 5 years old -. The failure date was 08/27/2007.
Power Window problem #18
The VIN of the problem Grand Cherokee is 1J4GX48SX4_. I bought a new 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee from hoover Chrysler/Jeep in summerville SC. While still on warranty the drivers side automatic window failed to the down position due to a defective regulator. This occurrence happened in our second year of ownership and was repaired by the dealership. The same failure occurred again to the drivers side rear window on 4/4/07 and again to the passengers front window on 9/15/07. All of these failures were attributed to a common regulator neither the local dealership nor Chrysler corp. Has issued any recall or admitted any capability for this obviously defective part. This issue happened on Sep. 15, 2007.

Power Window problem #22
The vehicle was a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While driving at 55 mph on interstate 45n, we heard a loud "pop", almost like a tire exploding. The driver side window collapsed inside the door, the noise and change in the environment caused the driver, my spouse, to snap her head in the direction of the wind and noise. She has pain in her neck from turning so quickly. Realizing we were not being hit by another vehicle, she looked back to the road ahead where her attention should have been, only to realize she had seconds to avoid running off the road. When we pulled over to inspect what was happening, our little dog jumped out the window onto interstate 45. Thank god we were able to get her to safety before the day got worse. We called our local dealer whom we paid a considerable amount of "cash" for the 2004 Jeep cherokee special edition, they advised us it would cost $75 to diagnose the problem, most likely the windows regulator, $250 dollars for the part and $150 for the regulator. I asked about the vehicles warranty and was advised it was only 3 years. Not sure what a window regulator was, I searched the internet, to learn that thousands of Jeep owners have had this issue during the first few years of ownership. It appears there is a serious issue with these window regulators and the issue is being ignored by the manufacturer. This is an extremely dangerous condition and we are fortunate it did not result in a major incident. The design and/or mechanisms need to change to improve the safety of those navigating in a Chrysler Jeep product. Bi shared my concerns with the service manager at the dealership I bought the SUV. I was treated with respect when I was buying, but now my concerns fall on deaf ears. This won?t help me, but I hope it prevents someone from a similar experience. I will sell the vehicle at a reduced price, my spouse is afraid to drive it. She fears it happening again spontaneously and on all four windows. This power window problem happened on 12/04/07.

Power Window problem #24
The car was a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1J8GW68J04_. I have had 3 window regulators break in my 2004 Jeep cherokee. The regulator itself is a faulty product, made of cheap plastic instead of something that is built to last with metal. Daimler-Chrysler took a major shortcut to save a few bucks and now Jeep owners are paying for it. Each window regulator costs about 277 dollars from a Jeep dealership, and they charge $500 for parts and labor to fix 1 (one) regulator. I've had 3 fail and replaced, so I've paid $1500 on a 4 year old american vehicle. . . On the windows!! this is ridiculous and this product should be recalled, and Jeep owners should be reimbursed for all expenses, or have all 4 window regulators replaced free of charge. The failure date was Feb. 27, 2008.
