    Default Auto closure of windows

    Hi guys,

    My Vectra C (07) has got the window system that closes when it rains. I was also under the believe that they would close after 4 hours automatically - well it did work before.

    Left them open last night and when I got out this morning .... they were still open.

    Have I missed something?

    How can I reprogramm it?

    If the doors are deadlocked, then if it rains the rain sensor will trigger the windows to close if left open

    not aware of the 4 hour closure .. what would be the benifit of this if you had left the window open to allow your dog to get fresh air if left in the car

    The 4 hr thing is mentioned in the handbook.

    Because the sensor is constantly monitoring for rain, after 4 hrs the windows will automatically close to prevent battery drain.

    I stand corrected. Yes it should shut after 4 hours according to the manual.. The only thing I can think of is somehow your deadlocking WITH rainsensor has been deactivated somehow?
