Hello, are all windows inoperative? Do any work from their own switch?

You'll want to check for voltage at the tan and white wire at the switch. if voltage is present the switch is bad. Let me know what you find and we can work further if needed.

We have used a Test Light to check for power to the Drivers Door, and we found power to the "Orange" wire at the Drivers Door Module as well as power to the "Orange" wire at the "Master door Switch". Still nothing works.We also have a Repair manual which show wiring Schematics for the "Power Windows / 2001 & Later" and it does not seem to match colored wires we have in the door. The repair manual does not show an "Orange" wire at all for power, it shows Brown and White - or - Dk Blue. This is very confusing. What next?

At the drivers door switch check for continuity to ground on the black and white wire. With the switch in the up position you should have voltage on the dark blue wire and in down position voltage on the brown wire.

I'll post the wiring diagrams I have below, they should match your colors, if not let me know.
