    Hello and please help!

    I have a BMW 318i registered in 2000(saloon), when I lock or unlock the car using the remote central locking, the electric windows open on their own.
    I can't use the buttons inside the car to close the windows till about two minutes after, or I have to lock the car again with the remote and hold the button in till the windows go up again, then unlock the car and hope the windows stay up.
    Any ideas?

    The first thing you should do is get the fault codes read from the general control module, there should definitely be a code stored, it would also be a good idea to check the wiring loom that runs through from the car body to the boot lid as it can be common for the wires breaking and/or shorting out.
