Anyone have a window randomly roll down?

I'm (almost) certain my passenger front window was closed last night when we got home. I plugged the car in but didn't really look it over. Since I parked at the girlfriend's house it isn't in a garage and well this morning, just that one window was down all the way. And as luck would have it, we got 3"of snow over night.
:cursing:


Anyone else ever have a window randomly roll down?

Are you randomly tall?

Mine only randomly rolls down the right rear window. That's because, being tallish, with the seat all the way back, my knee sometimes rests near the window switches. Usually I hear it randomly roll down, if I am moving fast enough. I must randomly hit other window switches, because when I notice air rushing around and pull up on all the window switches, 3 out of 4 windows will move up to closed position, maybe a half inch to an inch. But it's random, so I don't see it very often.

I was thinking that some of us need little shields and rests for the knees. Others, maybe not so much.

there needs to be some kind of a knee fence.

Yep, probably the most annoying design issue. I roll down either the front or rear of passenger window at least 2x per week regardless of foot position. They might have change the angle of these buttons maybe 10 degrees toward horizontal and the problem would be gone. I'll have to look at some sort of poor-man's fix if something we wedged into fence them.
 
I don't believe my issue was knee related as the only window that was still up was the passenger rear. I don't see how my knee could have pushed the driver rear and not the passenger rear.

I posted this before I went to clean the car out.. turns out it was both drivers windows and the passenger front.
 
I've had this once or twice with the driver side window. I've parked the car. plugged it in. charged over night come back in the morning and the driver window is down all the way. the 12V system issue sounds like the most likely culprit but it's not happening at all consistently, and I've had my 12V battery replaced twice sine I got the car. My issue is definitely not the knee problem, I'm 6 foot and I've never had that problem.

Could you or someone else have accidentally sat on the remote in the house?

If you press the top button for a few seconds, all the windows will roll down. Maybe one of them just got stuck in the cold, or maybe it's still stuck. Try out the remote and see if it reproduces the problem.
 
My knee also bumps the rear passenger switch and rolls it down all the time. Once I was going thru a touchless car wash and ended up getting a car full of soapy water.
I pinged Jerome about this and suggested that they make the rear window disable switch also work from the front switch. Just got a 'we'll take that into future consideration" response. Typical Jerome response anymore!
There's another long thread about this issue. Also, lately I've been having incidents where that same rear window won't raise until I fiddle around with different window switches.
it seems that if I turn the disable rear window switch off/on that will often then start the rear passenger switch working again.
