    Electric windows roll down when removing key from igintion

    Hi..

    First time poster but hope you can help with these bizarre problems on my wife's 2008 VW Fox Urban..

    1. When you remove the key from the ignition, the electric windows roll down.

    2. When you try to lock the drivers door with the key (as remote fob doesn't work), the electric windows roll down and the door does not lock.

    Hope you can point me in the right direction.....

    Thanks

    Sounds like a faulty door lock unit, you would need a fault code read of the central electrics system to help.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    As said: You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.
