Customer Question
I changed the battery...

I changed the battery in my 2011 CX-7, and now all of the windows are not working. I tried the reset procedure, but it's not working. What else can I do?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you changed a battery before?

This is the first time with my CX-7.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CX-7 yourself? What have you tried so far?

The battery was replaced at Firestone. I only tried the reset procedure described here.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I checked the fuses in the engine compartment and interior, and they are okay.
