Exclamation *FIXED* Window Control Issue

I've just found an issue where I cant roll any of my windows down from either the center console control or the rear door controls. The Power mirror adjusters still work as they should. The problem occurred after I wired an override switch to the radiator fan relay. (Put a toggle switch in the dash. Power from positive battery terminal and ground from negative, and load to the high speed IN wire on the relay. I have no idea how the two may be related but it seems suspicious that as soon as I touched the wiring it happened. There isn't a fuse listed for the window motors in the fuse box near the hood hinge. Is there another one I don't know about? Wouldn't be an immediate problem but I've got an auto-x event this weekend and I have to have the windows down to compete and I'd prefer not to have to open the door panels four times in a day...
Thanks for any input!

EDIT: Is it possible for the window switch pack to go bad, cause the front and backseat window switches to not work, but still have the power mirrors work?

EDIT 2: Fixed. I'm just a bit daft... When I was checking the fuses for the rad fan, I pulled the fuse for the power windows, its a directional fuse and I put it back in backwards...

check or - not sure but there may be a circuit breaker for the windows not a simple fuse.
