VW Golf windows opening themselves


Recommended Posts

Just bought a 2009 mk6 vw golf 2.0 Tdi. went out this morning to find both front windows fully down and the car unlocked. luckly it wasn't raining last night. defo put windows up and locked the car. anyone konw if this is likely to be an ongoing thing as i still have a day to change my mind on the purchase.

Is the distance from seatee to parked car such that you may have had the key in a pocket, and sat on it compressing and holding the open button?

Test if you can use the key on the locked car from inside home. If you can then error could be the cause. Do you have children who might have played with the keys?

Even if you do accidentally press unlock, if the doors are not physically opened within a certain time limit, the car automatically locks itself again as a safety precaution.

I have heard of this 'windows half open an car unlocked' issue before though.

Have a Google - its to do with water getting into the control module, which is not overly surprising given the weather we are having! +++

The chip in the key disarms the immobiliser doesn't it?

Fair enough on the boot, but that doesn't actually happen in my experience of any of our VAG cars.

If you simply unlock, and don't open a door, it locks itself again after 30 odd seconds, but if you hold the button so the windows drop as well, it then doesn't lock the doors.

That's how it was on my Skoda, how it is on my dads Seat, and all the Passats on our fleet.

Ditto with my Golf.
