It is not too common, but also not impossible to have five bad jamb switches. Try the removing of one or two and shorting the connection together, like mentioned previously. It is a simple test and will determine if the circuit is functional. You could also use an ohmmeter or continuity tester, and bench test a switch. It would have continuity when the switch is at rest, open when compressed.
In addition, these are all inputs to the BCM(body control module). It supplies a common power internally to all switches, but on 5 seperate wires. The drivers switch, and the left rear are grounded through G300, and the passenger front/rear and endgate ground at G320. With this being said, the chance of having several circuit faults, or two open grounds, is more rare than 5 bad switches. About the only other possibility would be a faulty BCM.
