did you have to jump start it or did it take a extra turn over to start? i know that when my buddys battery was disconnected for like 3 days and we put it back on the windows wouldnt work. once the car was running for like 15 mins it started. probably won't fix your windows but give it a shot

my front windows havent worked since ive owned mine. i gave up trying to find out why, im having them fixed at Turner Motorsport. it wasnt the comfort relay, motors, reulators, guides, or switches. i have a sneaking suspicion its tied into the remote start the P/O had. because the rears work, and when the lock button on the fob is pressed the rear windows would elevate if they were down. and im not getting into that can of worms.

This happened to me. I took door panels off and manually ran power to window motors with power probe and this reset windows. Sometimes windows will reset themselves. Pull window motor connector and run direct power to window motor spade connecters in motor. This can happen when battery dead or disconnected.

Good. Just hook power to each spade into plug in inside of motor. Ground wire clipped to one spade and tip to other. Press power probe on and turn switch on and it should work. I have had same problem on two bmw's.
Will do, thanks verymuch. I hope it works because i hate having to open my door at every redlight for some air hahaha

it could be body comfort relay (light blue) check bentley for location of it on your year car. if not you need to have the body control module rephased. i had to do this more than once on my 95. if you dont have access to carsoft, you need to see a dealer. an interface with the computer and the module. fwiw.
