I complained to the body shop and they told me it is probably coincidence and issues like this are simply due to the age of the car .
My question is when they removed the door is there something that they could have done that would have caused the switch not to function correctly such as disconnecting wires?
Thanks for your help.
I am not a big believer in coincidence. If it worked when you left the car with them, it should work when they return it.
I would guess (but don't know) that the one touch up and down have relays. Does one touch down work? If so, I would guess a relay is bad since the windows otherwise work. Hopefully, someone with more knowledge can chime in.
