Default 04 wrx Power Window Weirdness, please help

I just noticed this after the big snow storm but honestly since it's winter it could have happened a while ago.

My driver window goes up and down, no problem. But none of the other windows move. The motors don't even try - I've experienced them freezing open in the past but you always here a little 'grunt' from the motor.

So you'd think "bad switches", right? BUT the switches on the passenger doors don't work either. So, the only window that moves is the driver door. None of the other driver side/master switches work. In addition, the individual passenger switches don't work either.

That kind of problem makes me think it's broader than the switches.

update: I just realized this. A shop reinstalled a gauge for me recently. I had previously used one of those fuse box adapters to plug in the power leads I needed. It was ghetto but it worked (mostly. The gauge only worked when my headlights were on...shut up). So the shop was like "hey, we de-ghetto'd your gauge hook up".

A week later I realize that my fog lamps and cruise control switches don't do anything. They don't even light up.

So is it possible they didn't replace those fuses? And if so are any of those fuses the passenger power windows (but not the driver?)

I swear to god my car is becoming haunted with these weird problems as she goes on...

Thanks all.

Same thing happened to me. My driver window works fine but all of the others just quit out of nowhere. I'll let you know if I find something

Heh. I thought I edited this. The problem is between the seat and steering wheel...the stupid safety switch was engaged. I'd never touched it in the 9 years I've had the car and I guess I did by accident.
