The power windows are not directly fused, the power for the windows comes from a central control module called the "GEM", when you touch the window button the signal is sent to the GEM and it rolls the window down for you, it is a computer and it controls all the body electrical functions. This module can be tested and will return fault codes for what it finds lacking in the systems it tests, so what must be done now is to have the GEM tested for faults.
