    mine was left unplugged for 6 hours last month while having some work done and the only prob i had was where door was left open it lost the window sequence to drop down when door open , but did sort it self out

    also make sure you have your radio code just in case

    Doesn't matter if the doors open or closed the windows will need resettig, clock will need setting and there's a high chance the factory radio will need its code

    with the doors closed

    close the windows then press and hold the up button until you hear a little click after a few seconds

    some people say you need to do the same for down but I have never found this
