Sounds like the cable came off.
Check out or vendor here for the part you are looking for.
There have been others with the same type of issue here. Not a bunch, but there are threads about them.

Bad bulb would be my guess on the light.
But if you decide to take a look, disconnect the Neg(-) battery cable first! Then wait 10 minutes.
One of the airbag controllers is under there. You don't want this to happen!


For the door panel removal, Here is the way..... Post 2.
For the "carrier plate" removal see this post. (It's for the rear, but they are similar.)


If it is the cables, you have your work cut out for you. The dealer only sells the "carrier plate" as a whole. They do not sell the individual parts. As far as the cable routing goes, because the dealer only sells the carrier plate as a whole, there is not a diagram in the SM for them.
You will have to take the other door apart to see the routing and then try to get them back on. Another option would be to find either a Nitro in a junk yard or some kind of after market comparable parts.
I wish you luck in your endeavor. :smileup:

Yep, like I said before, they only sell the unit as a whole, they do not sell the parts.
It is called the "Carrier plate".
You could take the other side off and see how the cable is routed & attempt to put it back togeather... As long as none of the parts are broken you should be able to do it.
Did you disconnect the exterior handle and the latch from the "shut face"?
Here is the way

and my lights are off my my shifter arent lighting up any ideas?? See post 4 in this thread, and below.

anyone order these window regulator kits and install themselves?? Folks have replaced the carrier plate assembly that dodge sells, as far as I know, no one has just replaced the motor and cable. dodge wants way way too much
I have answered your questions above in Red.
To check the bulb for the shifter, Disconnect the Neg(-) battery cable, wait 10 minutes, then pop off the shifter cover plate (it is held on by 4 metal clips, about 1/2" from each corner, on the long side. Be careful when removing it, the plastic holes the clips are inserted into are not very strong. Dealer broke one of mine doing the H28 hand brake recall.
Circled in the below Pic.

Take off the other side to compare the 2, you'll be able to see a mirror image of the broken side. Easy peasy!!!
