jim, i noticed the switch was busted on the passenger rear door.
i remember danny;s car had the switch hanging by the wire, and it got caught in the door, and busted. after that half his windows didnt work.
in that switch there may be electrical connectiond that complete the other window's circuits.
replace that switch with a good one (i'm sure you have one on one of those doors you got!
i looked at it and the wire is pretty far down there, so you will probably have to remove the door panel to get at it.
replace the switch and see if that fixes it, and we'll go from there. i highly doubt the window motors themselves are bad, but at least fix the switch before removing the seats and carpet to check the breaker

The contacts in the switches were ugly with carbon(?) and gunk.
Cleaned the contacts, carefully reassembled and they all work.
Pretty straight forward, pay attention to how they come apart.

My relay, control box and power supply was all situated under the passenger seat and the red wire ran under the rug, so removal of the passenger seat was necessary. I'm not sure if this is the way it works on your car, but hopefully it may help.

jim, that is something we can work on in a weekend.

Sorry, I should have mentioned that all of this circuitry is underneath the carpet. My control runs along the door side rail of the passenger seat on the floor under the carpet, and there is a red wire plus a multitude of other wires leading from the power window control unit that lead out to where the passengers feet would rest under the carpet. That is where my "connection" was, and also the source of my problem.
I'm not sure if not having a switch in the back passenger side window would cause a problem. At least on mine, all of the windows were grounded through the main drivers side control and that in turn ran a ground wire back to the control unit and from there was grounded to the car. If the drivers side windows are working, I would assume that ground is good, although maybe I'm wrong.

the front passenger window was a bad motor. now they all work.
but i have found that whatever windw is unplugged from its swwitch, it wont work at the drivers switch either
