johny84 can you explain how to do that ?

JimmyJazz I had the same problem, wanted to remove the doors but i have power locks. I made some connectors six months ago, took me half an hour. (The connector is near the door limiter strap). No problem ever since

chucky cheese I don't think you would have enough room in the jam for connectors.

johny84 I have 4 wires going into the pass door , 2 for the window and 2 for the lock. But at the driver side door, I seem to have 2 wires going to the windows and six to the lock . Does that make sense ? which connectors do I need to use ?

Images:

this is the PASS SIDE DOOR.. 2 wires to the window engine and 2 going towards the locks:

this is the DRIVER SIDE DOOR wires going only towards the lock (there are 2 more going to the window not seen in the pic)

ANYONE WHO CAN HELP ....

as to Mr. T-BONE IN BIXBY, No need to go all fanatic on me.. The power windows were installed by a previous owner 10 years ago, and 3 years before i bought the jeep. I do not have the cranks nor do i know if any of it is functional so it just made good sense to stay with the power system. Until now anyway..

T-BONE N BIXBY Was this done by the PO? Do you still have the window cranks on the door panels? And are they still funcional.
If I was you, I'd ditch that crap and go back to using a tiny ounce of elbow grease to raise and lower your windows by using the hand crank.
It's not a 4 door vehicle, nor is the cockpit very wide. You should be able to reach accross the passenger side and easily roll up/down your passenger window with ease.
I'm sounding kinda rude, but I'm not meaning to be. I just find it strange that a TJ has power windows or that a jeep owner actually wants to have that on their doors that are made to be removed.

This is about the only option you have.
An electronic store/Radio Shack would most likely have any kind of connectors to make it easy to plug/unplug yet still be as reliable as could be.
I would guess there is already a fuse somewhere in the system, but if you can't find one, IMO, it would be a good idea to add one.

Removing doors with aftermarket power windows

Hello all,

Need some HELP please...
I have a 99 TJ with aftermarket power windows installed. Now, I want to remove my doors but cant because they are wired to the car for the power window operation.

Would like to get some advice for a solution to this problem that does not involve removing the power window system..

Thank You!!
