    Default Front electric window problem

    Folks

    Looking to see if anyone had come across the following problem with their Veccy - mines is a 3.0V6 CDTi. Last week when I went to get into the car I noticed that the drivers side front window was open about 2 inches. When I got into the car, I discovered that the passenger one was also open about the same as well. My wife had used the car the previous night and I assumed that she had left them open and gave her a row. The wife was away yesterday with the car and said that when she came back to the car, to come home, she discovered that both front windows were half open. It was cold last night and the misses likes the heat so it looks like they are opening by themselves. Spookey!!!

    Has anyone had this problem or know anything about this?? I'm going to send an E-mail to the VX customer services department to log this. My concern is that someone could steal the car or get water on the interior.

    Any comments would be great.

    Thanks

    James

    One or two members seem to have had this happen, It seems that there was a posibility that the button was pressed without knowing it and the windows went down, I am not aware of there being a "problem" where they go down by them selves.

    You do realise that if you can open the windows with the key fob. Many guys have accidentally opened them by pressing and holding the "open" button on there key while its in there pocket. The car will then lock itself after about 1 minute if he door has not been opened, so end result, windows are open with car still locked. Regarding water, if you have rain sensitive wipers, the windows will auto shut if it starts to rain.

    Pretty sure my windows close (with water sprayed on the sensor) with only one press of the fob button.
