Boxster window won't retract after battery replacement

Asked by Jun 10, 2014 at 07:23 PM about the 2001 Porsche Boxster Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After replacing the battery the driver's side window will not retract at all.  
The passenger window works fine - even with the one-touch up/down.  
The driver side window is up at the full position preventing me from
closing the door with the top up.  I have tried disconnecting the battery
and then reconnecting it thinking that it would reset something but that
didn't work.
