2000 280 Stuck Windows

I had my 2000 280 into a body shop for repairs. They disconnected the battery. Now, all 4 windows go down but will not go up unless I press the up button every 5 minutes and it goes up 1/4" at a time. Before I drop the usual $1000 to Deiter, is there an easy fix? Thanks

This is how i synchronize my windows if they act up, this might not work for your model, but it's worth a try.
This goes for all windows and has to be performed one at atime.
Close window by holding up the button all the way back, Hold button for five seconds at this position. Let go.
Open window by pressing the button all the way down, Hold button for five seconds at this position. Let go.
Do this to all the windows and see what happens.
Hope this works for you.

Today will be tomorrows history, make it count.

It reads in the manual too. Do you have a sunroof? It also needs to be synchronised.
