Power windows dead, but everything else work

Hi folks.

I have a problem with my Bmw518i E34 12/1995 all 4 power windows has stopped working. Fusible link is ok all fuses are ok. both them in front, under the hood and the ones under the backseat.

I've had the swiches out and everything looks ok here to. There is no button that can disconnect the windows on this model.

The General module under the backseat seems allright, i've looked inside it ans it seems quite new.

I've dismounted the battery, to reset the GM, but the power windows still don't work. I can hear no sound from the motors on any of the windows, so I figure it is an electric problem somewhere.

I'm out of ideas were to look for the problem, do any of you know what can be wrong?

Kind regards

TAke the switches out again and jumper the connections to see if the windows work without the switches.
Or test the switches with a multimeter.
