Replaced the power window/power lock fuse under driver side kick panel and tried two different master power window/lock switches. Power locks work on front passenger side door. Locks and unlocks all four doors. None of the window switches work. Every time I close the driver side door I hear click-click click-click.
Do you
have the same problem?

You need to start with basics. Check for power to the master switch and all other window switches. It sounds light you have a power supply issue and you need to find out where.

Pretty sure the switch is not getting power. Where does the power for this switch come from?

Fuse appeared to be fine. Replaced it anyway. Trying to inspect the wires between the door and the body but I cant figure out how t remove the grommet. It extends into the door about 3". Any ideas about that. After inspecting wires I will try the main power relay.

That grommet will peel out it can be a bit hard but it will come out. Take the door trim of and check from that side if you cant move it.
