Hi! Check fuse "J" in the Power Distribution Center (PDC - underhood fuse box). You can check for voltage at circuit breaker #1 in the junction box. If no voltage there, check for B+ on the Black/Orange wire at the ignition switch. Other possibilities are failed Master Window Switch or wiring problem at driver’s door. An experienced technician, such as one from YourMechanic, can come diagnose the issue with your windows and repair it at your home or workplace. Best of luck.
