Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have more than one issue going on but if all problems happened at the same time then I would first suspect the master switch has failed. It will take some electrical testing to determine what is going on, you may also have a combination of wiring and window motor issues.

Has anything been done to try to diagnose the problem?

Naw I just bought the car. They started work for a little bit and then stopped
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 months ago.

Did they all work together and then stop together at exactly the same time?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
They didn't work at first the guy I bought the car from said the windows would need to be reprogrammed because the battery ran down or was taken out. Then they all worked together for about 20mins then the only one that works is the driver side
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 months ago.

Have the windows been tried from their respective switches as well as the master?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
they have when they worked that one time they worked from the master switch and also the individual switchs
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 months ago.

When the windows don't work have they been tried from all switches?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
sir they have. I try them almost daily
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 months ago.

Has any testing been done?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No..I don't have the extra money to pay a 100 dollars to have it put on a machine to have the windows rest
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 months ago.

There isn't a machine that would tell what the problem is, electrical testing will be necessary. Is this something you're looking to do yourself?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Really would not have much choice. Yes
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 months ago.

Do you have an incandescent test light?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Nope
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 months ago.

Were you just looking to know some possible causes for the problem then?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
how to possibly fix it
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 4 months ago.

The problem can only be diagnosed through electrical testing unless a wiring or connection problem is seen visually. You can check switch connections and inspect the wiring in the boots between the doors and the body. Otherwise replacing the master switch would be the best thing to do if you're not able to do the testing to diagnose it.
