Mein Auto: 325i
Windows open by themselves!!!

Hi,
I am having major problems with my 2001 BMW 325i...I find that when the weather gets warmer my car windows will automatically open by themeselves (including the sunroof). I have literally come back to my car after a day of leaving it in a parking lot and the all windows and hte sunroof are open/down. It's really scary and I am thankful that nothing was taken from the car.

I have no idea what the problem is..and the place I usually take my car to get fixed has no idea either.

Can someone tell me if they have had similar problems, or know why this might be happening???

Thanx

Hi
your problem is the driver door latch.is probably short and give a signal to the general modul (GM) to open all the windows.like if you do your self with the key,if you leve the key in unlock position all the window go down. so your driver latch is DEFECT replace it and that gone fix your problem. se couple of that before.

Theres a programming feature to do that so Im guessing its picking up some stray signal it thinks is your key remote. Take it to the dealership and have that feature removed.
