    Angry Auto windows !!! Arghhh

    Went outside to get something out the car and find that all the windows were open and the rain had soaked through !!!! I know it was raining all night so good knows how long the windows were open for.

    absolutely soaked inside, checked the window controls on the doors and also that the speakers still work.

    anything else I should that still works that the rain could have affected?

    best way to dry he inside of the car ?

    currently sat inside the car with the heaters full blast and a wet ass due to he wet seat

    Bad times, sorry to hear that mate. Had you sat on the key and opened them all by mistake?

    This is why I always suggest decoding convenience open from the key, I kinda did once, when I left window down by mistake, I left car running & blowers on for a while, soon dried out.

    The switches are fairly resilient, so dont worry to much about them.
