159 'Possessed' Windows ??
Hi... I've owned my '58' 1.9jtdm TI since Jan this yr. Since then ALL windows have opened all on their own several times! The car maybe hasnt been used for hrs/days/or over a week, it doesnt seen to make any diff. The fobs are in house not being knocked or pressed. This has happened x5 times since owned. The car has 3rd yr warranty til Sept11 so spoke to my local dealer..."Bring it in but we cant/wont do anything if it doesnt happen to us" (as if I would lie !!). So took it in, 24hrs later pick it up (part changed) drivers door lock/latch ***, as a gesture of good will (as fault didnt happen to them). 2 weeks later its done it again !! I contacted original supplying AR dealer, they knew of this car... Guess what, car had prev history with windows & had had the body control unit changed. Told my local dealer, makes no diff, as we need to see fault !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grrrr.
QUESTION.... I have seen that the fob/key facility of opening all windows can be 'turned off' in software on other cars... Can this be done on AR159 as why would I want to open all the windows before I get into the car anyway ?? It isnt on driver menu. My friendly Vauxhall dealer mechanic friend who says VX, AR, Saab, Fiat are based on same. On VX they can cut a wire ! I will cut whatever to bring back my confidence in security of car. Help from techys reqd !!
