Electrical Problem Sub,Rear Windows, Fans Not Working

Another set of problems on my 02 focus zts.
Ever since I bought my focus my sub never kicks/works. It has the casette deck and at no point has the sub ever worked. Also along that, my rear windows never did either. And for the just recent my fans quit working, I had a new resistor put in two weeks ago and I checked it and it is still good. I'm guessing a relay next for the fans?

Dumb question but where is it located? I've never heard of such a switch. If you mean by the driver window lock I did check that.

Yes, slide switch below the window switches on the driver's window switch panel.

It's so small & usually ignored (unless regularly traveling with children) that I had to ask the "dumb question" for a possible easy fix before you got deeper into checking window motors/wiring.

That wasn't it I fooled around with it for about 10 minutes trying many different techniques and nothing. lol. Could the switch have gone bad?

All switches are possible, assume you've tried it at the doors.

Prob. should open up a door for testing, you can check right at the window motor connector to see if it's getting power/ground & use jumpers to a battery to test the motor directly if it passes a continuity test.

Alright back to my radiator fans, they don't kick on at no time even with the ac on. I put in a new resistor 3 months ago and checked it today and it is still good, I put in new relays and still nothing. However when I jumped the relays with a paper clip and my fans came on, I also heard the high speed fan relay click so it's definitely the engine cooling fan relay not getting power, I checked the 50amp engine cooling fan maxi fuse and it was good along with the ports it slide into with a light tester to ensure it's getting power, I also checked the 30amp engine cooling fan resistor fuse and it also checked good along with a light tester to its port. So is it going to end up being the coolant temperature sensor? I notice it never goes past "half" on the gauge even when it is way hotter than it should be
