    Hello and welcome eldiablo786 . The switches give a signal to the ZKE body control module to open/close the windows. Since you are saying that the switches in the rear work as well as front passenger, then the control unit is functioning correctly. That narrows it down to the drivers control switches, so they are probably not making contact. See if you can pop them out and give them a clean with some switch cleaner, otherwise replacement may be necessary.
