    Front windows stop... then start working

    So I have the top off and doors on today. Rolled the windows up to park when I got to work. (Makes me feel like it's safer for some reason),., Lunchtime comes around, I hop in, hit both front windows switches and nothing happens.... Back windows work fine. Turn it off/on still nothing. Go get food, jeep is parked for 30 min or so, come back out and the windows work fine. I'm clueless as to what's going on other than maybe Chrysler electronic ghosts (same ones that steal minutes from my clock prob), anyone ever had this happen to them?

    Yes, have a 2013 Rubicon and the front toggle switch will stop working once in a while, Dealer said they were ok and that the relay kicks in when they get hot/used a lot. Also happens when the doors have gotten water inside the grab handles..

    Makes me wish I had just plain old manual crank windows, but I guess your right, as long as it starts working again then oh well, I'll just consider it personality... I wonder if it did get hot, parked in the sun with no top on.

    I've had that same problem in the past and just this week my driver front window stopped working completely. Dealership installed a new regulator and that didn't work now they are looking for a short in the wiring

    Often times my door harness will get kicked and lose good connection and will cause my windows/door locks to not work.

    Same here. If you've taken the doors off before, make sure the connectors are plugged in securely.

    The little red plug locks dont work very good on mine so I just use zip ties to hold the plug together.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
