dead power windows, missing relays & aftermarket alarms

And now for the latest edition of 'Fuk - my life'

so i've had intermittent failure of my power windows in the past, but they've been solidly dead for like 3 weeks now..

did some research come up with info on the 'comfort relay'

this is what i should see once i got under there:


but this is what i get: No Blue Relay! guess its wired into the clifford alarm, that no longer works - could be one of the black ones if its been replaced, but?

suggestions? any help would be appreciated, thanks.

you need a new window regulator.


OP: I'd suggest either getting the wiring diagram for the alarm, or removing it and going back to stock.
