Driver Door electric issues

Any ideas why my electric window and locks will not work. The fuses and wires look ok.

Clean up the contacts (3) in the door jam. I polish mine once in a while with a stroke of sandpaper.

I checked for corroded connections, none. I checked the contacts and there were not any contacts on it. There was the normal button for the lights. I noticed when I hit the electric lock at the main house door that the driver door locks work. The switch in the driver's door does not. There is a red, black and green wire along with two white wires. The two white wires are hanging down with no connections. They are separate and have female plugs. I did not see any wires with male ends for them in the door. Any suggestions? Fuse is ok. My guess is the switch is bad. I will try to

Further investigations show the switch is good per my multimeter. I exchanged the relay with the cabin door with the one for the driver's door and they seem to be ok as well. Any suggestions as to what to check? Thank you for any help.

check the wiring bundle where it goes from the door to the door jamb. It may have an accoridian rubber cover on it that you will have to cut open to inspect wires. Opening of door flexes the wires in this area and if they are slightly long or short they tend to break here from flexing. Some full size Fords were famous for this.

I thought about that and checked it. It's a chevy chasis. I was hoping for something that simple.
