    Electric windows after alternator replacement

    Hi all,

    I recently had to have a new alternator fitted after experiencing power issues.

    Since the new alternator has been fitted, the automatic open/closure of the electric windows does not work. Previously, this would happen when I held the button for 2 seconds.

    Anyone know if this is something that needs re-activating or perhaps a fuse??

    Thanks

    Jay

    This is normal after you have the battery off mate,

    With the windows all the way up, hold sodn the button until they go all the way down and keep it pressed for a couple of seconds after it reaches the bottom,
    Do the same for the way up, and repeat the process for both windows,

    all should be fine after that

    Nice one Herc,

    Thats the kind of response I was hoping for, a nice quick fix.

    Out of interest, should my blowers lose power when idle and the steering wheel is turned?

    Thanks
