Passenger side power locks, windows and mirror

So I went camping this weekend and left my front, passenger side window rolled down while I was unloading stuff from the jeep. I then went and plugged in a power converter on that side of the car so that I could fill up an air mattress. When I went to roll up the window I found it would not work. It does not make any noise at all (as if the motor were trying to work but was stuck). It was then that I found that I found more symptoms, which I will list below:

1. No power to passenger side windows (front and back)
2. No power to passenger side locks (front and back)
3. No power to passenger side mirror
4. My key fob will not longer lock and unlock the car at all (alarm on fob also does not respond)

The driver's side locks and windows do work. The key fob, however, does nothing now.

I covered up the window with a tarp and then did some research online to try and find a solution. I checked the wiring in the front door jams and it all looked fine, except on the driver's side there was a random red wire that was broken, however, I could not see any place for it to connect (i.E. There was only one end of the wire, I never saw the other end). Also, the red wire appeared to be cut rather than broken, so I do not think this is related. I checked the fuse (#12 50 AMP) and it was good, I also tested it with a volt meter and even replaced it just for kicks, no change). I also visually inspected all of the other fuses and they seemed to be fine.

In doing some research online I found that some people had similar problems and resolved it by disconnecting the battery and then connecting it again. I did so, left it disconnected for about fifteen minutes, and tried again, still nothing.

So I am at a bit of a loss here. Right now the only thing that I can think of is that it is some kind of grounding issue (although I did check the black grounding wire and it seemed to be fine), or that the window master switch on the driver's side is bad. Any advice? Or is there any other diagnosing that I can do to confirm if it is, in fact, the master switch?

Thanks in advance for your help, I appreciate it.

Check ground near right front seat also have a mechanic scan for codes as I see in tips section there is some sort of communication problem so it may be a can bus problem that only a professional scanner can pick up.
