    Default Problem after battery disconnect

    Can anyone shed any light on this annoying little problem?.After resetting ECU after airbox mod i now have to keep my finger on the power window button to get them all the way up or down where as before i just needed to press for a second or so then they just carried on on their own.Have i caused it or is it just coincidence?
    Thanks

    You just need to reset them, so they know their limits.
    Wind them all the way down, keeping your finger on the button until you hear the motor stop, then do the same going up, and that should sort it.

    Easy fix........put both windows down a bit. Then hold both Up buttons until the windows go up, BUT, keep holding on to the buttons for a few more seconds.

    Done

    i read somewhere that the air box mod was actually making the car slower. something to do with the lack of swirl over the maf sensor throwing the mixture out.......

    That will be the trumpet bit mate, leave that on, just mod before the filter.

    I've only done the airbox mod and I've not noticed any LOSS of power; but equally have not noticed an INCREASE either. What I have noticed is a much smoother power band as I increase engine revs. However I have not performed the ECU reset, as I need to sort out getting a K&N filter. Will reset ECU after filter is fitted.
