    Electric windows dont drop on coupe after reconnecting battery?

    Hi everyone,

    I am hoping you can help me here, as i am a little stuck.

    I have fitted a new stereo to which i am very pleased with and does appear to work ok. The only problem is my electric windows dont drop when i open the door or reseal when i close the door (a coupe) and the windows only now go down or up as long as the button is pressed and the one press up or down does not work anymore since i reconnected the battery after installing the stereo.
    Is there anything i need to reset as i am now clueless!

    Any help would be apreciated, thank you for taking the time to read this, hopefully you can help.

    Thanks again

    Sounds to me like you have disconnected the power to them at some point

    What you need to do is reset them but pushing the switch down until the window is at the bottom and then hold the switch down until you hear a click and then do the same with the window going up.

    The one touch and everything should work now
