Hi, since you have replaced the main switch, the problem must be with the connector, wiring, or control module. Check all terminals in the main switch connector. If they look good, replace the control module. It's probably clipped to the door. You may be able to find one at a salvage yard.

    the brown wire with a white stripe on the driver's window motor leads directly to the module. Follow that wire to find the module. It may be under the dash. In that case, it will probably near the left side of the dash where the wires come in from the door.

    well, that's a bummer, sorry. We're down to the wiring then. We'll have to go pin-to-pin on the driver's switch to figure out what is wrong. Take the connector off the switch and probe the connector. Do you have battery voltage between the pink and black wires when the key is on? If yes, jumper those wires to the brown and dark blue wires to see if the driver's window motor will turn. Switch the wires to reverse direction.
    If you don't have battery voltage at the connector, check voltage at the 30 amp WDO fuse.

    yes, black is ground. Do you have battery voltage between the black and pink wires?

No power to power windows

Have you actually checked for power at the driver's master switch?
I don't think there would be a window relay, there is probably a power window circuit breaker in the instrument panel fuse box.
If no windows work, pull the master switch out and check for one hot wire with key on. If none, check for broken wires in driver's door opening. Your ground for the windows will be in that group of wires too. Both must work for windows to operate. If you have power and good ground at the master switch, and no windows work, probably a bad master switch.

I need help with wire connections for power window switch on olds ciera front passenger door.what color wire connects it to master switch?

In the diagram, the brown wire is voltage for power windows. Goes hot when you turn on the key. Voltage comes from the power window circuit breaker. The black wires in the middle of diagram are ground. Use a testlite to check voltage on brown wire, key on. If the brown wire has voltage, to check the black wire for ground, use a testlite between brown wire and black wire. If lite comes on, you have voltage and ground.

Driver side window control not working

The drivers side window master switch has to be checked for power coming of the switch .

The control should be replaced, but make sure your fuses are good.
