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.

It's actually a convenience factor built into the fob. It's so you can have the hot car "air out" in the heat before you arrive at the car door. Nice if you have black interior as it cools it off a bit before you sit in it. I am surprised that someone could do this unintentionally. I've had my Lexus for 13 years and never had this happen accidentally. Btw, I am a female and carry a purse. It requires a long press of the appropriate buttons on the key fob. To open all windows and sunroof, hold down the "Open/Unlock" button on the fob. To close all windows and sunroof, hold down the "Close/Lock" button of the fob.

Does anyone know how to disable this feature? DaybreakGuru, It’s in your purse as you say so you’re not dealing with the problem. But if it’s in the pocket of your jeans it’s easy to be leaning over, or working on something and trigger it. Happened again tonight and of course happens when it’s raining. 3 hours in the rain with the sunroof and all windows open. Nice.
