Found this out today - it's listed in the owners manual but I thought I'd mention it here for folks in case they scratch their heads about this later on like I did (this may have already been mentioned, but rendundancy is okay). :)

After you disconnect the battery (or if it goes dead), the auto-up feature of the front windows will be disabled. I have no idea why...but the manual states this as normal and talks about how to reset it.

I thought it had something to do with my Jet chip (compromised wire during the reinstall of the ECM, glitch, etc).

Easy to fix - with both windows up, all you have to do is this : hold each window switch up for 1 second with the window in the fully closed position. Then, deploy it to the full open position. After that, the auto up feature will be re-enabled.

Guess there wasn't an open variable to save that state with the power disconnected...wonder how many people will never figure this out after a battery change or disconnect (I'm always slightly amused at how many folks forget that they have an owners manual! :) )

Very interesting.
My auto-up occasionally takes a "vacation" - but always comes back.
Now it seems, I have a potential "fix" in store for whenever it acts up again.
THANX!

There is another, more critical, procedure that must be followed after the battery is reconnected: the Steering Angle Sensor (part of the Electronic Stability Program- E.S.P.) needs to be calibrated. If not done, the ESP lamp is turned on after the fifth time the car is started.

Calibration is simple:

A) start engine
B) center the wheel
C) turn wheel all the way left, than all the way right
D) center the wheel
E) stop engine

Tha tha tha tha that's it folks.
