All Doors and Windows Open in Rain!

Hi,
New to BMW.
So, I just got this car as a CPO and I come out today and the all the windows and sunroof are open in the rain. I assume there is some key fob command that does this and it was accidentally done in my pocket.
So... Is that true and how do I disable it?
PS seat heaters are helping dry out the leather.
Thanks for any help.

A long press of the unlock button, an arrow on mine, will open everything. I've not heard of a software cure. BMW sells fob covers. After it happened to me I became careful of keeping my fob in an empty pocket.

A CPO G20? A model which is in its first model year? Was it a lemon or a trade assist?

My guess would be that itís an executive demo or possibly a retired loaner.

Executive Demo 12 k miles.

So in case this happens to anyone else:
The rear seat bottom is easy to remove. Just pull up on the bottom edge.
The felt lining under that can be pulled up after removing two plastic trim "screws"
Seat heaters help dry out front seats.
I have not found an easy way to pull up the carpet.
