I have just had a terrible experience. Hidden mechanism on the fob can lower the roof remotely from inside the house. Went to my car. The interior soaking wet. I have never been shown this mechanism. BMW will not accept any liability. Has anyone else had this experience. Damage in the £1,000's mark.
Can anyone advise!
Its not a hidden mechanism, if you hold your unlock button down it will lower the windows & on a convertible drop the roof. It is programmed into the car not the key (body control module) you can have it programmed to not active so it doesn't happen again. Had you left your keys in your pocket or something & accidently held the button down
Just another thing to add if this happens on a regular basis it could be a faulty drivers door lock mechanism (quite a few are having problems with these with all the wet weather) I had the problem myself though mine is not a convertible but my windows would wind down everytime I shut the doors a new lock mechanism cured my problem. If it was just a one off its maybe as I said in my last post
