Default Driver door - Nothing works.

I have no power in the driver door controls at all. Windows do not go down, rearview mirros do not function, lock button doesn't work, and memory buttons do not either..
I have tried 2 driver door modules, and no fuses are bad..

Can anyone help?

Can you verify that you do have power going to the door? If not, then trace it back. Some times there is more then one fuse. On my 97 I have a drivers door unlock relay. You may have something like that as well.

What year are you dealing with? They made a change to the modules and they are not backwards compatable.

2000 Bonneville SSEi

Danthurs - Passenger door lock button locks all doors. Backlighting on switch panel also works. Multi meter will be out tomorrow.

myfirstbonnie - See above.. Both modules are from a 00 bonneville. Same part number and all.

FriendSSEI - Completely lost on this one.. Behind the tweeter?!

Sorry what I meant was Is there a wiring harness coming out of the front of the door into the A pillar that my have a bad or loose connection? First you will have to confirm any power the door,if nothing then trace back from there.

Sounds like you may have a problem with your DDM, Drivers door module.

Does your key fob lock/unlock the door correctly? I'm leaning towards a bad switch control on the driver side. Have you verified the switches are plugged in? There is a ten cavity connector that connects this to the driver door module.
