Brake job issue on 2015 Outback (also fuse problem?)

So I did a brake flush and brake pad change on my 2015 Outback. Had no issues and everything seemed to go fine. Afterwards the brakes felt good but there is an audible 'whooshing' sound (inside near the pedal) when depressing the brake pedal far past the brake's limits. Usually done when sitting still. The brakes are very crisp and firm when moving though, and do not seem to have air in the lines. Prior to doing this there was no whooshing sound, so I assume something is wrong.


I also can no longer roll down the passenger side window with just the driver's controls. Just the front passenger window. Do I need to change a fuse here? I'm guessing disconnecting the negative battery terminal prior to brake flush might be the cause here.


Any ideas?

Try this:
Initialize the power window in the following procedure to reactivate such functions.
1.Close the driver’s door.
2.Turn the ignition switch to the“ON” position.
3.Open the driver’s side window halfway by pushing down the power window switch.
4.Pull up the power window switch and close the window completely. Continue pulling up the switch for approximately 1 second after the window is closed completely.

Repeat this procedure from the passenger seat using the passenger's window switch to reinitialize that window (also do this for any other windows that have one-touch automatic open/close).

Thanks so much! I'll definitely be giving this a try.


Any ideas on the brake pedal noise?

So I just realized (after a bit of googling) that it is possible something may be wrong with the brake booster (which is near the brake pedal and works via vacuum).



Is there any way to reinitialize or reset the brake booster? Is it possible my brake booster is bad?


Edit: Found a video of the exact same issue:
