If it does you've got the feature and probably just got a duff microswitch in the locking mechanism i'm guessing
    Thanks for that, I'll give it a go

    I done as you suggested and tryied to push the window down as I was closing it and it made no attempt to stop or go down (my old 318cab used to wind down a few inches if I done this) so Im guessing the M3 doesnt have these feature?

    My alarms already wired since day one to roll the windows up. The set-up caused me the most headache lol not the practical side. Now its programmed to roll up all windows when I press lock, or you can have it so that you have to keep the lock button pressed but then that way you will loose the panic facility.

    Just as an extra (because i've got 2 or 3 programmable outputs left) i'll have one so I can drop the windows

    You never know your alarm might be wired for full closure, go out roll windows down and lock the car and then keep the lock button pressed

    Hmm you'll need to go into the "switches" of the alarm to set it up. Shouldn't be hard but just takes some getting use to
