Hello Im Chris and I will assist you. What are your windows doing going up then coming down a bit?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
no, usually when i try to roll down my window i will press down once and it just automatically goes down, but since the car had trouble starting, I have to hold down the button until it is all the way down
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.

Ok it lost initialization. First if you didnt you shoud replace the battery. Sounds like its starting to go on you. Are you by the car now?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Get in the car and turn key to on.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
i turned it on, but did not try to start it
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.

Press the button halfway down like you would to get it to go down automatically. Hold it halfway down until you hear a click or 10 seconds.

Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.

yes its good doesnt have to be running just so your windows work.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
my windows are now running like they should
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.

Ok so you are good with that?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
do you have any hints on the other issue
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.

Either your battery is bad or theres high resistance in your positive cable or ground cable coming off battery.

Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.

It could also be a starter that is dying.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
can i check that or do i need to go to a mechanic
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.

If you try to move the battery terminals and they are on tight ide say you are better off bringing it to a mechanic. You can test it but it gets tough.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
ok i will just take it to a mechanic
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.

anything else you would like to know?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
is it possible that now that the windows are working and if i can start my car that i must have left a light on or not shut the door all the way and the battery is fine? my car only has 54,000 miles
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.

It very well could be. Give it a week and see if the problem reappears.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
ok, thank you
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 10 months ago.
