DFOTOPRO, Welcome to the Forum. Just cleaning the battery should not have affected the windows. Have you checked the fuses? Not sure if the same fuse operates all of the windows.

the lights got left on and the vehicle was boosted in accordance with the manuals instructions, however now the driver side power windows do not work. you cannot even hear the window motor when you hold the switch.

finaly took it to the dealer seems the computer got a bit scrambled.


SO, take the negative battery cable off for about 5 minutes. That resets a few things and then see if the windows will work.

Yes I had the same problem with all windows, the battery died, and I needed to jump start the car.
When I went to open the windows the windows where not working and the power top would not come down. The smart windows got a glitch, no you may not need to go to the dealer for them to reset it.
This is what I did with some experimenting.
1) First charge your battery in the car,
2) disconnect the battery lead to the battery
3) while waiting 5 minutes clean your terminals on battery
4) check your fluids, tire pressure and filter Just for the heck of it
5) reconnect terminals on your battery
6) get in car and gently close the door, the window as you know will be up to high, but this will trick your smart windows to think its in normal position with the door close
7) start your car and hopefully it as booted up to normal.
I did find the first time I did disconnect the battery for a few seconds , this did not work,
it did not clear the memory out of the system.
The other thing was the when I waited 5 minutes the radio station memory was not lost.
Don't rush it,
Good luck and please give me some feed back.

thanks for the replies, just got back home and will try to RE-Set the computer in the am..
first thing I did do was to check for a fuse, but did not find any labled windows..
this is the first problem I have had in 40,000 miles, use the rag top as a daily driver and to tow behind my motorhome...has been all the way to Bangor Maine from SO. Cal..is a real fun car to drive but just got back from taking my Prowler out for a day trip, now that is fun

thanks to all, will let you know if reset works

Their is only one fuse for the windows inside of the car, It does not look like a fuse, It on top of all the fuses in the same location and its color is silver metal like a small relay, it pulls out just a fuse.
