    My windows ar rolling themselves down as well. I know its not the key fob unlock button. I saw on another site that some moisture can get in the door and .5 sec ground can cause the "auto open" windows function to engage. however, its not convenient during the middle of a big rainstorm, as I had to find out.

    I have 2002 maxima and went to dealer to do diagnostic check and change new battery and ever since after that visit ill come out of work, with my windows wide open. and in the morning leaving for work to find the same thing. also, i was drving with the doors locked as always, and then they unlocked by themselves while i was driving. i hate having to "babysit" my vehicle b/c i dont know when it happens and theft and damage is a big concern. dealer tells me to make an appt. and say "ooh that doesnt sound good" lmao

    My power windows randomly roll down when I have the electronic key fob in my pocket. I can be sitting with in 50 feet of the car or 1000 feet away. I live in the city and am concerned about theft and my windows randomly rolling down in a rainstorm.

    I have a 2003 Nissan Altima and the windows will roll down, hazards will flash and the doors will lock themselves with the keys out of the ignition. I have taken it to the car dealer and they can not figure out what the problem is. I have put 2 batteries in the car since June.

    Driver and passenger side windows will roll down when car is locked and we are away from it. The windows roll down to the same level on each side, but not to the same same level twice. It's random. Happened yesterday after a few months of no such activity.

    when I turn off my 2004 nissan 350z and open the door the windows roll down and stay down. I have no way of getting out of my car and keeping the windows up.

  • emilysphoto Dec 15, 2008

    My husband, father and I all have this exact same problem- we just thought it was our own mistakes until finally yesterday it happened when we just got out of the car (and it was off) the 2 front windows went down 4 inches or so the same on both sides. Now I know that each time I went into my garage to find both windows all the way down, it was NOT my mistake-I don't even roll them both down like that ever! The trunk is even popping open occasionally on its own as well.........we're taking the cars in next week. All 3 of us have Altimas. One is a hybrid.

    Funny thing, my windows, sun roof, rear defrogger quit working and when I replaced the smart entry control unit, my windows began to roll down IMMEDIATELY after I turn the car off and open the door. Every time. I ended up having to take the door panel off and unplugging the connector to the window motor. Ive had this car since it was brand new in '03, and always kept my keys in my pocket and NEVER did I come out to my car and the windows were down. I replaced the Smart entry control unit and it went haywire.

I will tell you the cause but some don't want to hear the answer or will swear they are not doing it. 
If the Intelligent Key fob is placed in a pocket, back pocket, purse or tight pants and (within range of the car) something presses against the unlock button for 3 seconds the windows will go down. Once the 3 second thresh hold is reached the windows start down. They will continue to go to fully open unless the button is released. In other words, the windows can be opened anywhere from a crack to fully open.
Try it. Take the Intelligent Key fob and walk within range of the car. Stop. Hold the unlock button down for 3 seconds and watch what happens. The windows start down. 
If the car is re-locked using the Intelligent Key fob the windows remain down. You have to physically go and turn on the ignition and raise the windows.
Front window operation with the Intelligent Key can be found on page 3-22 middle column near the bottom of the 2007 Nissan Murano manuel.

If your windows do happen to go down after pushing the unluck button for three seconds, rather than starting up your car to roll the windows up, you can also put your key into the drivers door lock (which is the only lock available to put it into on the MO) and turn the key in the locking direction and that will raise your windows back up again.

My key fob is actually put up on the key hook every night, my windows are always locked and my windows are all the way down by the morning. Could it be the weak battery in my key fob? Because currently my battery is low.

I bought a key jacket from the jacketstore dot com and the problem is gone. I was apparently crowding the buttons while it was in my pocket, not much but enough.

Funny timing! I asked around at work today, and someone mentioned that their car (not an Altima) had that fob feature. Sounded like a possible cause, so I tested it out. Sure enough, it worked....so maybe the button gets held down in my pocket (or maybe my daughter gets ahold of it...) I'll really pay attention to where my key is at all times, so that if it happens again- I'll be able to pin point when it happens and why. Thanks for responding- I was going to post this same thing to let everyone know....funny timing!! Hopefully this solves the case of the mysterious opening windows!

My 1998 ford explorer driver side power window will not roll back up! :-(


From your description it sounds like the motor is drawing too many amps and a circuit breaker is opening (to protect the motor). That could be from one of two things: a failing motor or a bad set of gears or some other hindrance that is causing the motor to work too hard. Auto circuit breakers generally reset themselves after everything cools down. Since it happened on more than one window it could also be that the circuit breakers are getting old and less reliable meaning that they will continue to fail more often. The symptoms do not suggest a broken wire

Dodge Journey windows going down by themselves


I have heard of this in fact, In a 2009 Journey R/T. A trip back to your dealer is in fact the best action. The one I know of had multiple electrical issues after the initial window concern within a few months. ie. wipers, signals, radio, heater not working.

You need a body control computer, which controls the windows, door locks and other items. The new computer will have to be programed by a good imports shop or Nissan dealer.

The power window on the driver side is not working -


Stuck up or down? Or, does it look "crooked" in the frame?

You possibly have a broken or shorted wire in the drivers door jamb inside the rubber boot that runs between the door and the body.
