Question about Cars & Trucks
What's FX4 ? How many door's ? Do the other door switches have battery power ? Can you test this with a volt meter ?
Principles of Operation
The left front window switch may be used to raise or lower all windows, or each individual side window may be controlled by the control switch located on each door panel.
The instrument control module (ICM) controls power to the power window system by activating or deactivating the delayed accessory relay.
The one-touch down feature will completely lower the driver side window when the master control is fully depressed, then released. The one-touch down feature is integrated into the LF window control switch.
There are 2 modes of LF window down operation: manual mode and auto mode. The manual mode is selected by pressing the LF window control switch to the 1st (DOWN) position. In manual mode, the window will move downward only while the switch is depressed. When the LF window control switch is pressed to the 2nd DOWN position, it enters auto mode and the window will open completely with a momentary press of the switch.
When the one-touch down feature has been activated, it will stay on until one of the following conditions is met:
Passenger windows may be raised or lowered using the LF window control switch or the appropriate passenger window control switch. Passenger window control switches receive power when the delayed accessory relay is active and the LF remote lock-out switch is in the UNLOCK position. When in the LOCK-OUT position, the passenger windows are deactivated.
The delayed accessory relay provides power for the operation of the power windows and the power roof opening panel. The delayed accessory relay is active whenever the ignition switch is in the RUN or the ACC position, or when the ignition switch is changed from RUN or ACC to the OFF/LOCK position and the LF and RF doors are closed.
The ICM will deactivate the delayed accessory feature when:

It was very srange, but all the contacts inside the switches of the main power window console (mounted in driver's door) were covered with soot.
I have disassembled the switch and cleaned the contacts. All functions well now.
The problem occured on a car that is used very rarely, that was most probably the reason of the sudden failure of the system.
Replacement of the main power windows switch would do the same but I have saved the expense this time. Hope the repair will last until I will sell the car.

pull the b pillar cover off next to the driver's seat, there will be a connector with 2 red wires mounted to the b pillar right next to the seat belt retractor, find the other connector, and connect them. should operate normally.

Their are two fuses that power this system. One is a 15 amp gauge fuse and the other one is a 30 amp main power fuse. You can also check the power main relay, your ignition switch, or i could possibly be a fault in the wiring

The switches in Subarus are made by Nissan believe it or not. They are not interchangeable. Anyway, I suspect you have a bad window switch. You can pickup the whole bank of swiches or replace just the one. Do a search on ebay for your part.
Has this car had body damage on the driver's door? You could have a cut wire inside the door.
