I suggest you check for power at the main switch to see if you have it there when the window switch is turned on. There is a relay in the circuit I believe and maybe something is happening to that. There may be a issue with the chassis ground so if you want to see if that is the case you could run a temporary wire from the negative battery post and to a good point near the dash area. If those things don't show up anything then you will need to trace out the power from the window fuse all the way to the window switch and find out where the problem is.

My info shows the ignition relay supplies power to the power window relay coil to turn it on. Power comes from the circuit breaker and passes through the relay and on to the power window switch on a grn/blk wire. There is a blk wire tied to the same connector that should be tied to ground for the return side of the window circuit.

The ignition relay is supplied power from fuse 5 located in the main panel under the hood. Power from the ignition switch turns the ignition relay on. There is a junction point on the same wire from the ignition switch that also goes to the two headlight relay coils so they can be switched on by the headlight switch connection to ground. So it appears the power for the windows isn't passing through the ignition relay like it should be. Somehow it is tied to the headlight wiring.
