    Remove the fuses and check the ends for burning, the comfort relay is allowing them to work with the door open.

    Fuse 2 is the one that causes this. Probably not blown or other things dont work but they can look ok but still not let the windows work...

    Change them all if they are the white metal type for copper or brass ended ones ceramic is the waty to go . Boat chandelers will fix you up but you can get them off ebay but mind they arte copper or brass along with ceramic base ,not plastic.
