I would still suspect a switch.  Are you sure that the rear windows safety
switch is not activated?  Start over.  Remove both switches and check their
continuity per Bentley 64.43? switching many times, as often they are
intermitent.  Others have had luck dousing the switch with contact cleaner,
but they are a PITA to open up for cleaning and contact adjustment.  When
you have the door switch out you can jump +12 and ground to the motor
terminals to check that the motor drives the window up and down.
