Help... Found Car With All Windows, Sunroof Open, Unlocked...

I locked my 2011 328i sedan, all windows closed, like I always do today...
Returned 15 minutes later: all windows, sunroof, and car locks open...
I didn't do anything differently, locked car with middle button on remote...
I DON'T have comfort access!
What's going on??
Thanks...

You pressed and held the unlock key on your remote.

Folks who keep the remote in their hip pockets often have this problem as the button gets pressed when they sit in a certain position. As my fob will unlock the car from inside my house, I'm careful not to accidentally put pressure anywhere on it.

You ever butt dialed your phone and called someone by accident? Same thing probably happened here. You held your unlock button for too long and everything rolled down.

Odd that you should post this. For the third time in several months, I've started the car in the morning to find that my trunk was open (no CA). I'm rather careful about locking the car and wear "loose" pants. This was not an issue with my previous E92; never happened in three years. Sun spots?

Optional Poltergeist Package (ZPPP)?

(Yes, it's happened to me, too! More than once. I purchased the leather key fob that does seem to decrease -- but not eliminate -- the chances of this happening.)
