Ok the motors work...check to make sure you have 12 volts leading to the switch, also check to make sure that the motors have a ground path... or in some cases a return path for the negative side of the motors, if yes then read on...can you manually crank the windows up or down from the inside?...by taking the motor out..and installing a bolt to make it hand turn-able...or getting a tool like pliers on it to make sure it isn't jammed with corrosion or a broken part?( for the sunroof had to install a bolt and manually crank it with a ratchet wrench make it open and close a couple of dozen times to loosen it up. i bought it after it had been in storage and it seized up...now it works fine on auto yes i lubed it while opening and closing it) if that isnt the case...then you need to test the switch. take the switch out...put a meter on it and check for continuity when the switch is depressed...(should get a short). if the motors,relays,and fuses are good then those are the only ones left. bad grounds are the leading causes for electrical problems with cars due to corrosion.
