The most important things.. under the passenger floorboard is the ecu if it got too much moisture it could corrode the board and cause the symptoms. its very low in the car and could have easily taken water. to remove it pull back the carpet, and unscrew the wood screws... yes wood in a car..and then remove the ecu box 3 screws i think and gently undo the cover on the ecu itself you can visually check the connections. let me know if you need any more help

Why won't windows roll down from main switch

If you remove the switch in the effected door, you can pull the wires to that switch and then run a 12 volt source power supply(i've used a battery from a cordless drill. It doesnt take much juice) directly to the wires, making certain that you swap the wires from pos. to neg. trying it in both directions, This will ensure you've got a good wire harness from the main over to the remote window. If the window moves, it's the switch. If it stays up, then you have a bad wire.>hope this helps

Left my window down in the rain and now it won't go up

It may have slid off the track from the water. If it doesn't start working once it dries out, a day or two depending on the weather, take the door panel off to make sure it is on the track properly and that the cables/wires have not corroded.

Air bag light stays on.don't know if this has anything to do with it but i left my passenger side window down and it rained for several hours.the light seemed to come on any stay on after that

Your airbag light means your airbag may not be working or there is a problem with it. The fact of the down window and the long rain, could suggest that the airbag deployment system has gotten wet or the connections are coroded have it checked and mention the rain
