This topic brings up this question -SteveM3 said:Now everyone has explained why I can confirm it certainly works. I disconnected my
battery when working on the car and forgot about the little drop and couldn't shut the
door . \.
Yes, but if all doors are closed and locked plus the battery is dead, then using the mechanical key still won't lower the windowSteveM3 said:You can unlock the doors by key which feels like a good old fashioned mechanical link
but no I not going to try simulating this . After that the hatch can then be opened by an
emergency cable under the rear seat.

How dead was your battery? I assume not enough to start but did it have any charge left in it, which might be enough to have lowered the window?Mini_Blake said:Ive had a battery die on me, and the doors opened just fine and shut ok too, although I wasnt looking as to whether the windows dropped or not.
Maybe on opening the door the windows dropped and as there was no battery, they didnt pop back up on closing. Everything looked ok though and I cant say that I thought about it when it was happening.
