It only happens when i go to open the drivers door..... the window goes all the way down...not like in comfort opening when the windows go down in stages......!!! the whole thing is baffling me.....i think my only option will be to get my dealer to clear the memory and re program my key.....
Just the driver's door? Easy access opening I've not heard of. My car had a problem with the BCI (body computer interface) and the door actuator that had the window opening, closing, unlocking the door etc. Search faults and fixes for 'christine' (think Stephen King's car horror) and you'll see similar.
That said, I did have it unlock a few times by pressing the key button by accident in my pants so try leaving the key fob on a desk or dresser and see if it happens there or just while in a pants pocket. If just in a pants pocket then don't wear such tight trousers ;-)

So you unlock it (via the remote), and that's OK, it's actually when you "pull the trigger" on the door the window just unwinds all the way? Sounds like eithe the computer's gone nuts, or something is wrong with the window mechanism. Of course the window should drop a fraction, then raise again when you close it so it misses the "door frame", it sounds like it's just not stopping.
It happened again tis morning...but i can't figure out the combination....i open the car via the remote key....then i opened the passenger door to put my bag in the car.....then i opened my drivers door and BINGO....the window went all the way down......only option is i think to clear the keys memory and install agian...
Is this meant to be a feature?
Drivers window opens on its own when opening the door.
Its happened a few times to me, but I'm pretty sure I'm not touching the remote, as I'm just getting out or into the car.
