Angry Windows Won't Work! Tried a lot, nothing has worked

I need some help please. My windows/sunroof stopped working months ago. I've tested fuses, check power to window switches and motors, replaced window switches and have recently installed a replacement General Module. The windows have continued to lower when I open the doors; when I disconnected the green plug while replacing the GM, the windows continued to lower (a little) with the doors open. I installed the replacement GM and the windows STILL DON'T WORK! Can anyone suggest anything that I haven't done that may be the problem? This is super frustrating! Now that the weather is warming, I want to get some fresh air sometimes!

Have you checked the trunk wiring harness at the hinge where they flex until failure, which can include a short circuit that affects the windows and sunroof?
