So the autocross is sunday. You'll need to know that

Today I installed my Dinan chip (yes it's sweet, blah blah blah go buy one) and I disconnected the battery. No I don't know why, the directions didn't tell me too I just did. So I hop in the car, bam it starts, zoom zoom etc.

It's a nice day out, so I go to put my window down. Only the driver's window doesn't work. Everything else does so it's not the CR.

When I press the button I hear the click if I press either way up or down. By click I mean it sounds like the actuator is doing something in the window itself. Just a switch or did disconnecting the battery fry the motor?

So I gotta fix this because if I can't get the window down, I can't race.

thanks
Kevin

How'd you fix it? Right now I'm more worried about makin the window go down than I am about making it go back up.

Also, the sedans have the windows that don't need to go up and down to seal because they're is a top part to the door (don' tknow how to describe it)

If it helps you any.... the steps for installing a Shark Injector ECU upgrade.... tells you to roll down the windows... I'm not at all knowledgable in the Dinan chip and how it works... but thats how it works for the Shark. Any correlation?

well it doesn't say anywhere to even disconnect the battery in my directions. They have a hotline I'll probably give that a call if I can't sort this out quickly today.

How in the hell did you reprogram your ECU with your battery disconnected?

Bah obd II. If you didn't live in CA you could get away with the OBD I conversion, but I bet there's no way in hell you could pass emmisions with it.
