No power to power window fuses 2005 Kia Sorento LX

(2005 Kia Sorento)
Ok just got this thing a few weeks ago. It has around 177K on the odometer. The power windows not only do not work, but no power to the fuses either. So I pulled drivers door panel to start. Key to "On" position nothing, engine running nothing and this is checking with a test light and a dvom @ the fuse block. So checking the fuse block had no power to the fuses and no continuity from relay terminals to fuse terminals. Tried swapping all other relays nothing changed.
Got another fuse block thinking something may have gone south inside the box. Now with relay out the relay terminal to the inside of the fuse block, the little tab moved over with test light probe and it clicks the fog lights and t/s relay. Still no power to fuses. When putting red lead of dvom set to 20V into forward fuse terminal the the black lead of the dvom @ + battery post it shows voltage. Also the terminal that tics the other relays shows about 1 volt lower than the other 2 terminals showing voltage.
All the window

Using the test light - *TEST* each and every fuse you can find on the vehicle - there may be a open feed circuit that another fuse is responsible for.

Otherwise you’ll need a wiring schematic and diagnostic flow chart to prevent unnecessary disassembly and testing.

Using a jumper / test wire - IF you jumper battery power directly to the either of the power window fuses - (there are 2 of them) - - will any of the windows work then?

That test would narrow the search down immensely.

Good luck!
