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

Customer: replied 1 year 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 1 year 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?

i turned it on, but did not try to start it
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 1 year 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 1 year ago.

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

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
my windows are now running like they should
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 1 year ago.

Ok so you are good with that?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
do you have any hints on the other issue
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 1 year ago.

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

Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 1 year ago.

It could also be a starter that is dying.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
can i check that or do i need to go to a mechanic
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 1 year 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 1 year ago.
ok i will just take it to a mechanic
Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 1 year ago.

anything else you would like to know?

Customer: replied 1 year 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 1 year ago.

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

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
