    Drivers side automatic windows not working after changing spark plugs??

    Ok I have no clue what I screwed up but last night a buddy helped me change the plugs on my wrx (runs so much better now) problem is my driver side window does not operate correctly now.
    the switch is a two stage switch, first stage is Manuel adjustment and second stage is automatic, the first stage does not work and the second stage acts like the first stage should. What could i have done to cause this??

    Sometime, getting-in-n-out, maybe with tools in hand, damaged the switch, mechanically... Certainly nothing to do with the plugs...
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Go out and turn the car back on, it will now magically work. This happens when disconnecting the battery.

    If you ran the wires correctly they should fire...

    whenever you disconnect the battery and automatic windows including sunroofs need to be reinitialized

    Yeah, I have no idea why this happens. I've noted the same thing.
