Some while since I last posted but here we go again.

 

Twice in the last year or so I have looked at my car and was shocked to find that all the windows were fully open or at least as fully as they can so do. The car is locked and the door mirrors tucked in according to my settings re the mirrors.

I always keep my car keys on my person and have done since time immemorial.

I cannot really see how sustained pressure on the Open button on the key fob could have been achieved in my trouser pocket.necessary to achieve Global opening - a rather unsettling finding.

 

Any ideas, folks?

Could be a faulty door lock module in the driver's door.

Yes, since posting, Google comes up with lots of references to this. However I've gone into my MFD settings and disabled 'Convenience Window opening' in the menu to see what effect this has.

Many thanks.
