    not sure about the alarm, but the windows need to re-learn - dead easy.

    Switch on ignition, drop each window by pushing & holding th button (don't use one-touch) - as it gets to fully open, keep the button pressed for 5 seconds. The raise, again holding the button & again, when fully raised, keep button pulled up for 5 seconds.

    Repeat with rear windows - should be ok then.


    The alarm might even then start behaving
