Wj Windows and Locks not working (already fixed the wiring in the door boot)

My drivers side windows work, the drivers door will unlock (not lock) and the drivers side mirror can be adjusted. The entire passenger's side is inoperable.

After much research, I have found some broken wires in the boot of both doors. I have spliced in extensions and checked the voltage with a multimeter. Black is solid ground while Orange/White is at 12V. I have checked fuse 12 (50A, JB Power), swapped it with another, nothing. I have also taken the kick panels off the inside and check to make sure there are no breaks after the wiring goes into the vehicle. I have also taken the panels off the doors to make sure there are no broken wires. Still nothing.

Could it be the passenger door control module (thingy with switches)? I don't understand why the drivers door will unlock, but the door behind it won't unlock (there's no sound of a relay clicking or anything to indicate that it is stuck). Also the back hatch has to be manually unlocked, which is a pain in the ***.

This is my third attempt to fix the problem (been going on for 8+ months) to no avail. Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
