its a cold winter and i left the lights on 1 night and the battery was dead the next day. had the road service out and the guy said the battery looked new and said all i needed was a jump and to run the car for 2 hours and then trickle charge it overnight. since that night the windows only go up an inch at a time or at all. i thought it might be the switch but its all the windows that do it. ths SRS indicator light is on now also. the wife says she has had problems with the key fob opening the doors but since the battery charge she's not having it. 1999 320 e just bought off a little old lady with only 27,000 miles on it. i'm starting to wonder why she sold it??? need help, do i need a new battery ???

Everything needs to be re-synched. Run the window all the way down and hold the switch for a few seconds, ther run it all the up and hold the switch for a few seconds. Check the other windows and do the same in needed. Check the sunroof, if you have one. Reset the ESP, BAS, etc by turning the steering wheel all the way to the right and hold for a few seconds and then all the way to the left and hold.

Yeah, jump starting is very bad thing. I have had several customers with all kinds of cars blow the air bag module [xx(] by getting a jump start.....

Good advice, Lynn. A mechanic at my dealership tells me this also works for the power seats, and he restored the function of the easy-exit feature of my steering wheel this way.

I don't know how to get the SRS light to go out. It is possible that the jump start caused the problem.
