How do you disconnect a light switch and outlet that are tied together?

If there is a black wire going from the outlet to the switch and the other side of the switch goes back to the outlet then just cut these wires and connect supply wire directly to outlet. If the supply goes to the switch first, disconnect from switch and connect the two wires with a wire-nut. Some situations only switch one of the two outlets in a duplex device. Do the same thing, but also replace the outlet since the strapping between both outlets has been removed.

How do you wire a 4way switch?

Connect all white wires together under a wire nut and push them back into the box. Connect all ground wires together and then connect them with a jumper wire to the ground screw on the switch. Connect black power in and power out, if applicable, wires to the bottom screw on the switch. Connect the remaining black wire going to the light to the top screw on the switch.

The drivers side switch is the master switch; all power goes thru this switch. Pop it out and test for power; you may just have a bad connection at the switch. I would also check the window lock switch and bypass it to make sure that is not the problem.
