Windows go up and down; won't close or button doesn't respond. Even though dealer doubted it, after I replaced the battery, the problem went away. That was 10k miles ago.
I had all of the window regulators fail to many times to count. They started to fail when it had only 1200 miles on it they replaced 9 under worrinty and i have put in a few more. Just rember to cary water proof tape with you so you can tape up the windows when they fall all the time.
