You mean you replaced the switch that disables the rear windows as a child safety feature? Or the window switches themselves?

If you don't know what I mean, press the button next to the hazard light and try again.

Since I was curious, I used advanced search, title search, typed in "rear windows not working" and found a thread with no replies, but a good possible solution...and I bet it's yours.

A fuse issue. Search and then search for your blown fuse. Yes, it could be that simple!

Definately not the fuse since OP stated in his first post that the windows will open/close with the key just not with the switches.
