POWER WINDOWS

1995 Mazda MX6

Electrical problem
1995 Mazda MX6 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 145K miles

I have a Mazda MX6 and the power windows recently stopped working on both doors. I checked the fuses but they seem to be fine. What else should I check?

TEST NO. 1 1. Turn ignition on. Check POWER WINDOW fuse (30-amp) in joint box, near left kick panel. If fuse is blown, replace fuse (repair wiring if necessary). If fuse is okay, go to next step. 2. Measure voltage at Black/Red wire terminal of main switch connector. If battery voltage exists, turn ignition off and go to next step. If battery voltage does not exist, repair Black/Red wire between fuse and main switch. 3. Disconnect main switch connector. Check continuity between ground and Black wire terminal of main switch connector. If continuity exists, reconnect main switch connector and go to next step. If continuity does not exist, repair Black wire between ground and main switch. 4. Measure voltage at indicated wire terminals of main switch connector with main switches in specified position. See POWER WINDOW MAIN SWITCH CIRCUIT TEST. If battery voltage exists at all terminals, go to next step. If battery voltage does not exist at all terminals, check main switch. See MAIN SWITCH TEST under COMPONENT TESTS. 5. Measure voltage at indicated wire terminals of sub-switch connectors with main switches in specified position. See POWER WINDOW SUB-SWITCH CIRCUIT TEST. If battery voltage exists at all terminals, go to next step. If battery voltage does not exist at all terminals, repair wiring between main switch and sub-switch. 6. Measure voltage at indicated wire terminals of sub-switch connector with main switches in specified position. See POWER WINDOW SUB-SWITCH-TO-MOTOR VOLTAGE TEST. If battery voltage exists at all terminals, go to next step. If battery voltage does not exist at all terminals, check sub-switch. See SUB-SWITCH TEST under COMPONENT TESTS. 7. Measure voltage at indicated wire terminals of window motor connectors with main switches in specified position. See POWER WINDOW MAIN SWITCH-TO-MOTOR CIRCUIT TEST. If battery voltage exists at all terminals, check window motor. See WINDOW MOTOR TEST under COMPONENT TESTS. If battery voltage does not exist at all terminals, repair wiring between main switch and window motor (driver's window), or between sub-switch and window motor (except driver's window).
Also is this a coupe? And check the harness where it passes from the door to the interior of the car, wires break in that spot from bending with opening and closing of the doors.
