    Default Auto closing windows when it rains

    Read on here a while back that if you've left your windows open and it rains, the windows will automatically close. Ohh I thought, so went outside, opened a window, locked the car and poured water over the rain sensor on windscreen and yep the window shut.

    Today went round my mates house (has a Zafira) and he asked if I knew about the windows closing when you hold the lock bytton on key fob, said yes and then explained to him about the windows open and the rain bit. Opened a window on my car, locked it and poured water over sensor and nothing. No windows closed.

    My wipers work fine on rain sensor and all the windows operate as they should.

    Any ideas?

    Its a 06 plate Elite.

    cheers

    Too much water can confuse the sensor... if you pour a steady stream onto it it wont work everytime..... to chech it is working, pour a little water onto it and then tap the sensor gently. If that doesn't work, take it to Vx.

    Rushy is correct. Deffo needs to be double locked.
