Drivers Window does not work along with trunk switch and mirrors

In short, nothing works from the Drivers window switch assembly, as well as the trunk switch below it. All passenger windows work from their own switches. I could not find a schematic, but a bit of common sense logic on the matter would help.
What I'm wondering. Is there another piece of electronics that controls those systems beside the window switch?
If there is a wire broken in the door, would the orange wire have power? mine does.
Is it possible that the ground is broken?

thanks
Jon

No, I haven't changed anything yet. Both are quite expensive new, and not necessarily cheap used, and I didn't really want to buy both.

The one thing that's been making me lean towards the Module is that the trunk switch doesn't work either, but is not part of the window switch. There is power coming into the window switch, which controls the mirrors, windows and window locks, and it is on the orange wire. But I couldn't fine a decent schematic to show which wires are for which, and whether that was the normal hot wire, and which, if any was the ground.

I tried. Couldn't get anything to respond. That's why I was wondering about which wires were supposed to be hot / ground - to verify that all was working as it was supposed to on that end.

I took it apart where the door connected to the frame, and unhooked the connector. I could see no way to get the rubber hose off since there was a connector hook (read glued) to the end of it, fastened from all appearances the way dad used to nail walls together, so anyone taking it apart would destroy it in the process. So no, I could pull it back and look at some of the wire, but could figure no way to see it all.
