Default Driver Door-mounted controls = DEAD

So the Driver door-mounted controls are DEAD. These include:

-All 4 window switches
-window lock button (light doesnt even light up)
-power window button

The door locks work fine, and the other 3 windows can be open and closed from the non-driver door controls. What could the problem be? It just died all of a sudden unexpectedly. Maybe it'* a dead fuse? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!

Pull your door panel and look for a connector that is not hooked up anymore

Have you pulled the door panel to look for a loose connection? If the connection is ok, then you may have a driver'* door module that is going bad.

All right, i took the door apart and could NOT find any loose connection.. everything seemed plugged in. The thing is, the lights on all the buttons were working, so there was power going to them, but the buttons just dont work! When i press the window lock button it should light up to indicate the windows are locked, but that one does not light up... its just the 'backlights' of the buttons that work.

So here is a summary list of the stuff that works and does not work:

WORKS:
-All button 'backlights'
-Door safety light
-Door Speaker

Does NOT WORK:
-Power locks
-Power mirrors
-Power windows
-Power window locks (button does not even light up)

At this point i have no idea what to do, i wonder if the module needs to be replaced

Check for 12v on the orange wires to the driver'* door module. If not there, check the DRVMDL and PWR WDO fuses in the rear fuse block. If the module has power, with all of those functions not working, and the connections are good and tight, it is quite possible a bad driver'* door module.
