Hmmm Windows with a mind of their own! Especially when I leave it parked!


I have a problem with the windows on my 147 JTD Lusso (04 plate).

I have returned to the car 3 times now to find the windows have lowered themselves whilst I have left it parked and locked.

Each time the windows on the drivers side and passengers side are at exactly the same level and have dropped anywhere between 3 and 7 inches. On one occasion the central locking has also un-locked.

On every occasion I have checked for signs of tamper, but found none. Also, I know it's not me leaving the car in this state, as I am uber cautious and always check the windows are up!

Anyone else witnessed the same problem?

Would love to know...

Hi Matt, welcome to!

About the problem you're having... does your 147 has an alarm system? Did you pressed the buttons in your key for a long time, say 2 or 3 seconds? It could happen if you had the key in your pocket because, if you stay pressing the buttons they will also close or open the windows.

On a different note, you're welcome to post some shots of your Alfa.
