As you said the car was painted

The rubber seal on the windows might have not been put back right causing them to roll back

Your problem will most likely be the drivers door lock mechanism, they have micro switches in them. On most minis if you put your key in the door lock & hold it in the unlock position the windows will go down & sunroof open (sometimes works holding unlock button on remote) I would suggest either the painters have put the lock back wrong in someway (if they removed it) or the microswitches have gone bad. The best way to test this is to remove the interior door panel & unplug the electrics to your door lock. This should stop your problem for now until you can get the lock replaced. You can still lock the car with your key but you will lose the remote locking/unlocking until the mechanism has been replaced
Let us know how you get on

Thank you sooo much. It was the pin going into lock mechanism in a bind. Don't. Have to go to dealer now. Thank you again
