Question about Cars & Trucks
Power windows do not work. Car running all doors closed tightly and I try to operate the power windows: I hear the power window fuse relay click, located in the passenger side interior fuse box, I get a door ajar alert and the interior lights above the rearview mirror light up. The door ajar and lights go out at the moment I release whichever power window switch I am trying to operate. None of thew window switches work their respective windows. I am stumped.
Electric short take it to dealer for diagnosis and repair

Sounds familiar - I pulled the rubber boot back and found the black wire was broken. I stripped the wires and put on a couple bullet connectors (terminators) and all is good. Just wish I would have seen this post before I took the door panel off... Oh well...

I could not find this switch either, It is actually located in the door latch on the door jam. Switch is somewhere inside. Took my truck to mazda dealer and had it replaced. Anoying problem.

SOURCE: Power windows stopped working
If the power to the illumination and the switches is out in the door, I would say it is a broken wire in the A-pillar to the door on the driver's side.
This is a Light Blue w/ Black stripe wire, it powers both the illumination and the windows themselves.

I had this problem where only the drivers door power equipment works.
It is caused by a splice under the driver's seat. Spice #S302 where the input from the drivers door module to the other door modules connects. It is one of those cheap *** splice that should be outlawed. Moisture gets in it and corrodes. Cut back the wires till you get the good stuff and redo it the right way.
Splice S302 can be found under the carpet about six inches before where the wires go up to the drivers seat. It is in a plastic wrap and tape. I believe the wires for the window are brown and white.

Tips for a great answer:

Passenger door module (PDM)
Body control module (BCM)
LR power window switch
RR power window switch
Window up and window down relays in each of the rear passenger window switches
Window lockout switch
Reversible power window motors in each of the doors (circuit breaker protected)
LT DOOR CB 25A (System power for left rear window)
RT DOOR CB 25A (System power for right rear window)
The power window system will operate anytime the retained accessory power (RAP) system is active or when the ignition switch is in the ACCY or ON position.
The DDM contains 4 power window switches which are integral components. Closing any of the normally open, rocker type switches provides the DDM with a request for power window operation. The switches for the 2 front windows have 3 positions Up, Down and Express Down, while the switches for the rear windows have only 2 positions, Up and Down. Each of these switches and their positions is a direct input into the DDM. Upon receiving a request for power window operation, the DDM, transmits a class 2 message indicating the switch and it's changed position.
The PDM contains a single power window switch that is an integral component. Closing of this normally open, rocker switch provides the PDM with a request for the front passenger power window operation. The switch for the front passenger window has 2 positions Up and Down. Each of these switch positions is a direct input to the PDM.
The 2 rear passenger doors have there own switches. Each of the switches contain a power window up and down relay. A switch activation alone can control the up and down functions of the rear windows. However the BCM, upon receiving a class 2 message from the DDM, can control the set of relays which will activate the rear window motors.

Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.
Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.
