Grounding wouldn't be my first path to repair, not with all 4 doors inoperative. Sounds more like a fuse or relay. There are power window relays under the hood, above drivers fender in a panel.Tech should have spotted it right away. If you have a voltmeter and a Chiltons manual for the wiring diagram, you just have to start chasing voltage...I'd start with the drivers door panel. Remember to have your ignition switch in ACC before you start...work your way backwards towards the battery (relays, fuses, junctions, etc) until you hit power... tedious and frustrating work.
