Question rear window switch unresponsive

I have an issue with my 2006 325Ci convertible that I can't find in another thread. I had my battery disconnected while replacing my fuel pump. Once completed my rear quarter windows do not respond to the switch. Also the "all windows" switch is unresponsive. The windows do respond when opening/closing the top with the key or the top switch, so I know the motor and regulator is good. I have tried disconnecting the battery for 15-30 minutes asI saw in another post. Still no switch response. The front windows respond to their individual switches. I have checked the fuse and it was good. Any suggestions, please?

Not sure if verts have the same switches as sedans, but if they do, maybe the button disabling the rear windows is pressed?

They don't. The vert has an "all windows" switch where my sedan has the lock out button. But the "all windows" switch is also unresponsive.

I have had similar issues after the battery has been disconnected on my vert, although after going through several iterations of window open/close cycles on each window switch they seem to reset themselves correctly. I did read on another post, (maybe bimmerfest??) that you can reset your electronics as follows:

Disconnect the battery altogether then attach the -ive cable and the +ive cable together for 10 minutes to reset all electronics. I have never had to do this. Suggest your search the forums before you do so just to check it out again first.

Good luck!

Thank you. I've tried toggling the switch about a million times (lol). Still no response. I'll see what I can find about the +/- reset....

Anyone else out there ever do this reset?

I've got the same issue on my coupe. Quarter windows respond to all windows command on key, but not to individual switches. Both stopped working at the same time. Front windows work with individual switches.
