98 XJ master door wiring problem

I recently had to get into my drivers side door jam to replace some broken wires that were shorting out when the door was open more than 10-15 degrees. As far as I can tell, I replaced all of the wires that were frayed or cracked, and this has corrected MOST of the electrical problems coming from that door. However, I am now unable to roll the passenger side window down from either the drivers door or the passenger door. I notice the small green light on the passenger window control goes dark when pressing the window down button from either door. I'm thinking there's another bad wire in my door jam but had no luck finding it either visually or with a continuity check. I tried using these wiring diagrams attached below to help identify wires, but I'm not very advanced with electrical work. Can someone please tell me what color the wire is coming out of the master drivers side door that is responsible for rolling the passenger window down based on these diagrams???

It appears to be brown/white and violet/white. Also check the passenger door harness for broken wires. Though the passenger side breaks less often i would definitely check there too. Same wire colors.

there are also 2 connectors in the harness. most likely in the footwells where the harness goes through the A pillar. If the passengers side harness seems ok then you will need to check for signals at the switch on the passenger side from the drivers switch.

I can help more with narrowing this down but lets see if its simple first
