Maybe the fault is not a result of the key reinitialization - sometimes coincidences do happen. Two separate functions sharing a common fuse going bad at the same time does make the power circuit a suspect.

Fuse 6 @ 30 amp supplies the passenger door module power only for both windows and locking motor, no other door.

Try checking the fuse again &/or simply replacing it. Although rare, occasionally a fuse faults without a easily visible break in the link. Also check the terminals in the fuse block haven't pushed back/out, i.e. fuse actually enters the terminals.

The fuse 6 circuit enters the door via connector X256 pin 26. X256 is the one in the rubber boot at the A pillar to front of door. Should be 12V with key on.

If the fuse and X256 check out, check for 12 V on pin #1 of X889, the black 5 pin connector to the door module. Key on.

Grounding is via a block at bottom front of door and then pin 27 of X256. But since door light works this should be OK. Only a faint possibility of high resistance that allows light to work but not the window or lock motors.
