All - driver - passenger - front an back ? Look for broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to the door ,driver side !

Power Windows Operation
Power Windows
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. The DDM receives a window switch request, over the SBI serial data, from either the passenger door module wired to the window switch pressed or from the driver door switch assembly. The DDM checks the Class 2 serial data to see if the status information is correct (i.e. ignition switch position) to permit window operation.
If the status information to permit window operation is correct, the DDM sends the command to the door module controlling the window to move the window as requested.
Windows Power and Ground
The windows are powered by discreet power and ground circuits. These circuits are in the same dedicated connector as the window motor drive circuits.

PWR/WDO 30 amp circuit breaker located in the rear fuse box ,DRVMDL fuse 10amp located in the same rear fuse box . This power the driver door module (computer )

The vehicle is equipped with power door locks. Each lock actuator is powered and controlled by the door module mounted in the individual door. The driver door module (DDM) is the master control for the door lock system but the rear integration module (RIM) contains the program that determines when the lock functions are permitted.
The exterior key cylinders are wired to either the DDM or the passenger door module (PDM), depending on the location of the key cylinder. The interior lock switches are wired to the driver door switch assembly (DDSA) and the PDM. The DDSA and the PDM send the lock switch requests to the DDM over the simple bus interface (SBI) serial data circuit. The DDM then sends the lock requests to the RIM over the Class 2 serial data circuits.
The door lock operation modes are controlled by the rear integration module (RIM). The RIM examines the requested function from the DDM, or the remote function actuator (RFA), as well as the transmission shift selector position and the ignition switch position information available over the Class 2 serial data circuits. The RIM determines if a locking function is permitted, and commands the DDM to perform the function permitted. The DDM then sends commands to the rest of the door modules via the SBI to implement the selected locking function.
All programmable modes of lock system operation are stored in the RIM. The RIM checks the lock function program selected against the lock requests, the transmission selection and ignition key switch condition to determine if the requested function is permitted. If the requested function is permitted, the RIM then commands the DDM to perform the lock function over the Class 2 serial data circuits. The DDM commands the individual door modules to perform the lock function over the SBI serial data circuit.

GOOD luck your going to need it !

#PIC5913: Diagnostic Tip - B1001 With SIR MIL And/Or SVS MIL And/Or Locked Radio - (Sep 19, 2013)
Subject: Diagnostic Tip - B1001 With SIR MIL And/Or SVS MIL And/Or Locked Radio Models: 1998-02 Chevrolet Astro, Venture, S10, Blazer, Trailblazer, Camaro, Cavalier, Corvette, Impala, Monte Carlo, Lumina, Malibu, Metro, Prizm, Express 1998-02 GMC Safari, Savana 1998-02 Pontiac Bonneville 1998-02 Pontiac Firebird Models, Sunfire, Grand Am, Grand Prix, Montana 2001-02 Pontiac Aztek 1998-99 Buick Riviera 1998-02 Buick LeSabre, Park Avenue, Century, Regal 2002 Buick Rendezvous 1998-99 Oldsmobile Cutlass 1998-02 Oldsmobile Bravada, Aurora, Intrigue, Alero 1998-02 Cadillac DeVille, SeVille, Eldorado, STS, SLS, Catera, Escalade Models The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
Condition/Concern Some vehicles may exhibit a B1001 DTC with an SIR lamp, SVS lamp on and/or radio locked, possibly after module replacement (i.e. BCM, SDM, etc.). This information is presented to clarify the failure modes that will set this DTC, as well as offer a diagnostic direction to help repair them.
DTC B1001, by definition, is a "configuration mismatch" between vehicle modules that communicate with each other over a data line. Modern vehicle systems depend upon each module storing certain vehicle information, as well as information about other modules in order to work properly together. Common causes of B1001 are:
  1. An incorrect or non-existent VIN number in modules that require them.
  2. A module that has been replaced but not programmed per currently published service information.
  3. SDM replacement where the new SDM is a different (newer) part number than the original.
Recommendation/Instructions A common diagnostic approach that will address most concerns with B1001 is as follows:
  1. Ask the technician if a module has recently been replaced which led to the B1001 DTC. If so, determine if the service information procedure for replacing the affected module has been followed. For example, some callers mistakenly believe that a new BCM simply requires "theft deterrent relearn" to operate properly. However, many modules require a "new module setup/RPO configuration" procedure to operate properly. The process for setting up a new module varies, consult currently published service information for the correct procedure for your application.
  2. If an SDM has recently been replaced, the BCM requires the last 4 digits of the SDM part number to be stored in a portion of the BCM to prevent DTC B1001. If the SDM's service part number is different than the original module, a special procedure is required to erase and re-learn this "restraints ID" code in the BCM. While the procedure varies from vehicle to vehicle, there are two standard methods as follows:
    1. On some vehicles the Tech 2 has a function available in the BCM or SIR "Special Functions" menu. Common terminology is "setup SDM part number in BCM" or similar nomenclature. Follow on-screen instructions to complete procedure.
    2. Some vehicles require an "SPS" method of programming the restraints ID. Perform the "Request Info" step at the vehicle and confirm the VIN number stored, then take the Tech 2 back to the terminal and down-load the appropriate file from the TIS2WEB "available modules" menu.
  3. If neither of the above are successful in clearing B1001, check the following modules with the appropriate Tech 2 data list under "VIN" or "module information" to determine if the correct VIN number is stored.
PCM: If the PCM does not have a VIN stored, or the incorrect VIN is stored, it will be necessary to program the PCM using the current SPS method. If the PCM already has the latest calibration software installed, it will be necessary to contact Techline Customer Support Center (TCSC: 1-800-828-6860 English or 1-800-503-3222 French) and request a VCI number to allow reprogramming with the same calibration.
BCM: If the BCM does not have a VIN stored, or the incorrect VIN is stored, it will be necessary to install the correct VIN using the appropriate line under the BCM's "special functions" menu. Follow on-screen prompts to complete programming.
Radio: If the Radio does not have a VIN stored, or the incorrect VIN is stored, it will be necessary to install the correct VIN using the appropriate line under the radio's "special functions" menu. Follow on-screen prompts to complete programming.
Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
