confused 2000 Windstar Power Windows Not Working

All of the power windows in my 2000 Windows have stopped working. Neither the the driver's side or passenger's side window switches make the windows go down. Also neither of the rear windows will open either. So all 4 windows will no longer open. When I press the driver's side switch I can hear a relay click, the lights do not dim. I way checked every fuse and they are all good. I have replaced the Front Electronics Module (FEM) as i believed that the windows are controlled there thru. Still the windows do not operate. Assuming the driver's side switch for the passenger's window and the passenger' side are not wired in series, this would lead me to believe the switches are not the issue either. So I am left wondering what is common to all the windows that I am not aware of.

Does anyone have any ideas? Is there anyone that has experienced this issue too and resolved. If so, you help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have power in the light blue/black wire at the master switch? Is there power at the #18 fuse in the inside fuse box? | Repair Guides | Windows (2000) | Windows (2000) | AutoZone.com

There is 12.43 Volts DC at fuse 18. The fuse 18 reads zero ohms. The light blue / black wire connects to the common of the drivers window switch and reads 12.43 VDC as well.

Re: 2000 Windstar Power Windows Not Working

From diagrams I have found there are only two components common to all the windows, these are:
~ Front Electronics Module (FEM)
~ Master Window Control Switch (MWCS)

I have swapped on the FEM with two other modules, and the problem persists. So I do not think the FEM is at fault.

I have jumpered the wires connected to MWCS and I still get no operation from the windows either so I do not suspect the switch either.

It leaves me wondering what I am missing.

How's your ground?

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
