several times  I have come out of a store and all my windows are down all the way and the sunroof is wide open. What is causing this?

There's a program in the computer that is telling the car to do that. I don't remember what it's all about but it is something that you should bring to the attention of the dealer. They should know what to do.

The RX my wife had would do the same thing, found out it was the key fob, if the unlock was pressed repeatedly all of the windows would roll down and the sun roof would open, thought it was a malfunction til I found that it is mentioned in the owners manual, is it programmed that way. Just like if you roll up a window accidently on your hand it will automatically roll the window down just as soon as it senses a high load before fully closing.

So keep the key fob away from things that might be rolling around in her purse.
