You'll also find on the wiring diagram that all the window current paths
pass through the driver's door switch panel as well as the hinge area which
is notorious (yes, I said notorious) for wiring breaks caused by fatigue -
since that door sees the most open/close cycles. Since you didn't say you
have replaced the driver's door hinge wires, I am going to suggest you pull
back the "accordion" that is exposed when the door is open and take a look.
That's the prime suspect for any funny business with anything with wiring in
the doors - windows, mirrors, alarm, lock pump, etc. I even had the sunroof
stop working when the ground wire to the window/sunroof timed control relay
broke on my car.
