My car is Acting very strange

Has anyone had this type of problem
Someone help me!

Almost Every Time I unlock my car with the key fob, all windows and the sunroof open and its driving me nuts! the only way I can stop this is to press the key fob right after the windows start to open to stop the windows from going down. About a year ago I noticed that when I put the key in the door key hole with the windows down that they didn't roll up like the use to and I never got around to getting some to look at it and now this problem with the windows opening within seconds of unlocking the car. I have also noticed that a few times I will come out and see all the windows and sunroof open very strange for this to happen.
I have done some research and come up with a few ideas of what it might be but I'm not a tech so I'm just asking anyone here on the form if the have had this problem with their car.

So my two things I think that my problem could be are GM5 module body electrics module or the lock in the drivers door has broken but I can still unlock and lock the car with the key in the drivers door and my car does have the factory alarm in it

I am not holding down the unlock button as I know this opens the windows, its literally just one quick press and within seconds down come the windows and the sunroof opens!

Any help would be great
Mark

I'll bet that Atilla at TechMax in Mississauga can figure it out. I know he has a way to reprogram all of these automatic features on BMW's. Phone him up and see what it'll cost you and if he's seen this problem before. My guess is he probably has.

the flaw of BMWs over designing. all this extra krap is just more to go wrong. although i do like the windows coming down on a hot day before getting in.

My first guess would be the body module, it can make it do strange things.

Did you ever figure out why or had it repaired?

^^I got it repaired it was the Door Lock Actuator causing the problem.

Who did the work for you? Cost? Satisfied with the service?
