Help Please! 1999 Prelude SH power windows not working

Ok here' what happened,

Rolled down passengers window all the way, drivers a 1/4 down, no issues. Then went to roll them up on the switches and nothing happens.

When I pull the up button on the main switches on the driver's side for the passenger's window I hear a whining noise through the stereo.

When I pull up the switch (button) for the driver's window it sounds like it's trying to lock/unlock the doors.

Also tried the passenger's side switch/button to roll up the window and still nothing.

The power mirrors both sides work off the top part of the door as well as the heated mirrors button.

Took off drivers door panel, removing the master switch controls and unplugged to see if there was water, nothing. However, when I turn the window control switch to off for the passengers window nothing happens, turn it on and I hear that whining noise if the stereo is connected.

Next I hot wired the window motors to get the window rolled up, worked 100%, removed the passenger side door panel and did the same with the battery window rolled up 100%.

So my question is, could this be a relay or is it the master switch (with the 2 windows and on/off switch part) as honda parts guy is suggesting?

Could the relay cause all these issues??

I've owned this car from new and have had nothing but problems and yet here's another one. any suggestions are appreciated in advance,

thanks!

**UPDATE**

I tested the relay, not the issue.
I switched out the master switch aka the power window buttons and on/off passenger window switch with one from the wreckers and it's doing the exact same thing.

So when it's connected these are the issues:

Driver's window won't go up or down when pressing button.
With passenger switch "on" pressing the driver's side passenger button sends a whining noise through the passengers speakers but window does nothing. Pressing the passengers window button doesn't cause the whining and nothing else happens.

with the drivers door open, pressing the drivers window button seems to mess with the door lock mechanism but doesn't lock or open, just makes a clicking noise same as pushing the mirror heating button.

Any help? is it the mutliplex unit?

thanks

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
