Car windows opening by themselves???


Registered User
Hey all,

So something extremely bizarre happened today when I woke up and went to start my car.

All windows were down half open and from when I last remember yesterday night I can pretty much confirm all windows were up and the car was locked -_-

My first thoughts were that someone had tried to break in to the car and steal it. I googled this and found that it was a common issue with some of the older VW's to automatically open the windows if you pressed unlock twice and held it down.

I then tried this with no luck, the windows didn't go down.

Any others had this before?

Yep, mine did this once, I switched that feature off.

Thanks for the responses guys.

That's a huge sigh of relief!

Hopefully doesn't happen again -_-

It's the design of the fob that's the crux here, way too easy to press the buttons inadvertently when in pockets. Someone posted about a 3rd party cover that was available for the previous design that stops this but I can't find it.....
