When you disconnect the battery in the PT Cruisers you have to rub the connectors (terminals) together and leave off for 10 minutes, it will reset it and believe me this is the solution. I had it done a week ago after replacing my batter a few months ago and losing my power windows as well. Who woulda thought?

Check the fuses and power relays first. If all is ok, the next step would be the switch(s). If the switches , fuses and relays are all good then the only thing really left would be the window motors. Hope this helps.

Nissan maxima 2002 battery drains overnight. auto electrician found the FL40A fusible link power windows to be the problem. when the FL is removed the battery doesn't drain


If your car has self closing windows when the car is locked or automatic open/close, it is possible one or more window motors is not switching off as it should leaving it stalled and consuming current.
I once had a Vauxhall do that..

I suggest you insert an ammeter in series with the fusible link and measure the discharge and compare it with a window motor stall current...

1997 Mitsubishi Montero sport, dont have the cover for my fuses and I need to know which is the "ECU" fuse to try resetting my computer.


Often disconnecting the main battery for say 5 mins should do the trick without needing to find the fuse.

My front passenger side electric window won't work


You likely have a defective window motor but other problems like wiring can cause this. I suggest you have a shop properly diagnose this before any work or parts are replaced. The window motor is part of the window lift regulator and is fairly expensive.

The only thing I can think of besides some serious electrical issues is your alternator. It sounds like a weird issue, but the alternator deals directly with giving your car power.

My check gage and battery lights come on when I first start my Gran Prix but will go off when floor the gas pedel. The drivers electric window would not work right away either.


Hello and welcome to FixYa!


As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Max AC not working, driver window intermittent, normal AC erratic


Sounds like your having problems with a couple of relays.When you say that battery leaked do you mean out the top of the battery as that sounds like the alternator is over charging the battery and maybe the root cause of your electrical problems.
