99 E39 525i Electrical Problems

1999 E39 with an electric demon inside. The doors are locked and will not release (only the drivers door and trunk lid), no wiper, no interior lights, basically everything that the GM3 controls. I have replaced the GM3, the drivers side door actuator. I have tested the lines back to the harness and so far no breaks. I read somewhere about the wires going to the trunk all good back there. The car runs and drives like a dream it has 115k miles and seems like the previous owners maintained it.
