Hi All,
While I was checking my car for the fault that Gunner has with his sunroof, I found that both my sunroof switch and the electric window switches are permanently live - i.e. I just unlocked the car, got in and the switches work, no key in the ignition.....

Is this normal?
If not - what would cause this?

Question

Cheers

The relays for the windows and sunroof are active if a door is open, regardless of the ignition.

Useful if you've forgotten to close them before taking the key out.

Cheers Chris - I've just run back to the garage to try again with the bloomin' door shut this time.
You are correct - I am stupid frustrated Embarassed
