If you're hitting the switch and the inside lights are dimming it's obviously still drawing power. It absolutely sounds impossible for both motors to fail simultaneously. Have you tried running power to the motor directly for shits and giggles? Bad ground?

Pull the panel off. The apply 12 volts to the motors leads.
My drivers window used to do this. I was told that leaving the window all the way down for long periods of time causes it.

Had the same problem Even after I ordered a new Switch come to find out the new switch was grounded out too, and they had to send me a new switch which fixed the issue. AHHH the Chinese garbage they are making these days. I am convinced you have a BAD new switch....

I am gonna agree with Pate on this one, probably a bad switch.

Are you certain the used switch was functioning properly? I ended up going to the dealer for my Window switch and threw the Chinese one in the air for target practicing.

Maybe it's time to take it to a pro, as it is you're just wasting money guessing. If your int. lights come on with the switch it has nothing to do with your windows or switches, you have an electrical issue somewhere, possibly frayed/melted wires in the doorjamb or elsewhere.

Woulda been diagnosed by $200 I'd bet. You threw parts at it and are exactly where you started but $200 poorer. If your window stops working, sure, it could be a motor, switch, relay, but if it stops working and the dome light comes on its not that simple.
Don't need to go to Ford, a good shop could diagnose it as well, I do that kinda stuff often.
