06 X5 Passenger Door electrical issue

Hello All,
Newbie here.
I have 06 X5 4.4i that has some front passenger door issues.
The front passenger window canít be controlled from the driverís switch but works when you try on itís switch . Also, the side mirror on that door doesnít work at all, even folding. Finally , the window goes down even when the car has been turned off.
Not sure if this is related but the car wonít lock the doors.
Back story ...everything was fine until I replaced the door handle carrier.

Most likely you pinch some wire when you did the repair. If i have to guess you pinch the wire when you went to reinstall the airbag.

The lock hardware is plugged into the window switch hardware. If a connector is not plugged in properly it will present your symptoms
