I came to my car this morning and my windows seem to have wound down during the night

 

terrifying, nothing stolen so I presume the car had a herby moment

 

Any ideas, help

Welcome to the forum!
By any chance had you your keys in your pocket and by any chance did you sit on them? Apparently its common enough!

Oh right, thank you

 

Possibly had keys in pocket

I may be acting daft here but how would touching the buttons on the key open the windows, I think im missing something

 

Thanks

Without knowing what car you have, I'm making an assumption that its a relatively new car.
Go out and hold the open button on the key fob for 5 or 10 seconds and what happens?
You should also have full closure when you hold down the lock button.

Oh my God

over agressive locking leads to no security at all

Many thanks

Either I'm stupid or youre a genious

Perhaps a bit of both

Well I'm a genius but lets not let my ego grow any further.

Anyhow, glad its probably that, that opened your windows and that you have learnt something new

Car locked and you hold down the unlock button i.e. with your @r$e when you sit on the key, then if it's like my E60 the windows will wind down.

If the car is unlocked and you have the windows all wound down, then by holding the lock button the windows should all close.

Be exclusive and drive a Petrol 5 Series!
