Other than that, I'd say it's the connector/rubber boot area of the door where the hinges are.

Good luck they can be evil. I had one of the wires broken/shorting.
Apparently you're right...it can be evil as the wires usually break in that rubber boot; which I did find plastic breaking but no breakage of wire. I was also told by my buddy from BMW that multiple breaks can also happen. which means further tracing. UGH!!!! I have to get the last window back up before the rain hits tomorrow! lol.

I was messing around with the switch and even opened it just to see how simple it was. it works fine as the window switches light up with the switch is off. there is a short or something in there...more digging.

thanks for input.
