07 JKU Sahara power windows problem

I can't figure out what is going on with my windows. All four of them will not go down and it just makes a buzzing sound when I push the button. I thought that maybe it was the switch module, so I replaced it. It still did the same thing. Here is a clip of what it does. Any ideas?




Thanks,


Phil

Any chance it could be the fuse? I took the fuse out to see what happens and that just kills it completely.

Take it apart unplug it then bypass the switch with a wire to roll down the windows that way if that works then its ur switch or check ur relay if it has one

Did it always have this problem?

Other words, did the windows roll down for you, then stop working one day?

They use to work fine. Then at one point, it would do the buzz thing, and not work off and on....now its all buzz.

The "fuse" for the windows isn't a fuse. It's a mechanical circuit breaker.
Have someone actuate the window switch briefly while you see if the circuit breaker buzzes or vibrates.

Ok, so I did hear a faint "electrical" sound coming from the fuse box. I pulled out the circuit breaker and I could still hear that sound, BUT after pulling it out , the switches are completely dead. They don't do anything. I'm assuming that is because there is now no power going to the switch at all. Should I replace the circuit breaker? Could there be something wrong with it?

Did you listen to and feel the breaker while someone actuated the switch?

Yes, they couldn't feel anything or hear anything specifically from the breaker. Now, I thought it was all four switches that did this, but it is actually the front window switches that do the buzzing thing. The rear windows do absolutely nothing.

What about the switches on the rear of the console for the rear windows; do they do anything?
