I am having some issues with the electric system. when I try to roll the windows up using the switch on the central console the two little rear windows go up but the two door windows don't move. and while I pull the switch up the internal lights dim a little bit.

also, when I turn the key (without starting the car) I notice that the EML light goes on.

everything was fine until a few days ago when my rear right tire blew. it looks that the negative battery plug got loose and one night the car didn't start (I thought the battery died). I found the loose plug and replugged in; the car started fine. the battery seems ok now (the battery status indicator is black though).

do you have any suggestions?

thanks in advance

Today same issue with power window switch (the one that controls all the 4 windows). but after driving for 10 mins and restarting the car everything was working fine.

do you think it can be an issue with the battery?

I bought a battery from Wally when I thought it was a battery issue; haven't taken the security cap out yet so I can return it.

after a couple of days, everything is back to normal. power windows working correctly, no dimming.
waiting for my Peake and see if I get any useful info.
