I still think the problem is broken wires inside the rubber
accordian boot between the driver's door and the body/jamb.
The switches switch ground, so that in one direction they
provide 12V power, and in the other they act as ground/earth.

Open up that rubber boot and look for a) broken wires, and
b) broken insulation with weakened wires.  If the wires on
the driver's side are OK, make the same check on the
passenger side door.

Yes. Your chances are much better than relying on just me. :)
More heads to work on the problem, more ideas to fix it.
