    is that the same key?

    does it need reprogramming?

    :)

    If your windows aren't behaving correctly try this to reset them... (hopefully!)

    1> Turn the ignition on
    2> Push the open window button until the window is open, then keep it presses for 5 seconds longer.
    3> Push the close window button until it is closed, then release.
    4> This should reset the memory on the window.

    Repeat the same procedure for both windows.

    Thats where I got the reset procedure from in the first place, although it is documented elsewhere too...

    Borrowed this section from http://www.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62834

    Initialization is performed on the power window switch of the relevant door.
    Requirements for correct initialization:
    • Initialization with engine running
    • Convertible top, doors and windows closed

    Initialization comprises:
    • Erasure of initialization
    • Reinitialization

    An initialization must be performed:
    • In the event of malfunctions, e.g. no one-touch control function, no opening or if available no comfort function is possible
    • After the power window drive has been replaced
    • After work is carried out on the power window mechanism
    • After a power supply interruption, e.g. disconnection of the battery or disconnection of the power supply to the door
    • After the door window glass has been removed and installed or replaced
    • After adjustment work on the door window glass
    • After adjustment work on the convertible top
    • After replacement of seals

    Erasure of initialization:
    • Open door window glass fully
    • Operate power window switch in "Open" position four times within 10 seconds

    This erases initialization of the power window, anti-trapping protection and toll function are inactive.
    Check whether one-touch control (toll) function is inactive, otherwise repeat procedure.

    Reinitialization:
    Avoid a break between the two steps!
    • Open door window glass fully
    • Operate and hold power window switch in "Close" position (second switch stage)
    • Once the upper end position has been reached, hold power window switch in "Close" position for approx. 2 seconds longer
    • Open door window glass fully
    • Operate and hold power window switch in "Close" position (second switch stage)
    • Once the upper end position has been reached, hold power window switch in "Close" position for approx. 2 seconds longer
