Default Help! Windows Not Working After New Battery Installed

I just had a new battery put in and now the power windows don't work and I know there is a simple solution for this .. done it before, but I'm having a senior moment and can't remember what I did. (2005 PT Convertible)

Try unhooking the battery and letting it sit a few minutes. Hit the brakes a couple of time to git rid of any residual power. Then hook it back up. See if that doesn't reset things.

Here's another suggestion that resets things on the PT when the windows don't work....

Thanks for the info Crewzin ... I just might take it to the dealer and have them to reset the computer ... it's too cold outside for me to be dealing with this

The dealer might charge you almost $100(+/-) to do what you can do in 10-15 mins,and if it's TOO COLD outside for you to mess with......Why do you need the windows to work any way????

On a convertible to reset the windows both doors need to be open when you discounnect the battery for 10 minutes.
This has work for me a few times in the past.
