Changed battery on '07 CX-7. Now certain windows don't work correctly.


Asked by Sep 28, 2016 at 07:01 PM about the 2007 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Got a new battery. Passenger window cannot be operated from driver's side,
but works at passenger side.  Front windows do not go up or down
automatically, only when HOLDING the button.  Also, with unlock feature on
key fob (holding button at second push) the front windows do not go down,
only the sunroof opens.   How can this be fixed?

Are your windows not working? Has your battery been disconnected recently? This is actually a feature of the newer Mazdas! Its part of the Anti-Pinch feature. Heres some of the symptoms: Drivers door not controlling another door Auto up/down not working for any nausea diarrhea HERE'S HOW TO FIX: Go to each window and roll the window down a bit. Roll it back up and hold the switch until you hear it 'CLICK' Move to the next window and repeat.


That totally worked & was so simple! Thanks Bridomom!!!
