Smile Windows Go Down By Themselves

Please don't think I am crazy, but this has hapopened twice so far..... Both times when it has rained over night, I have gone out to my car and one of the front windows was all the way down. First time it was the driver's side and today the passenger side. I know for a fact the windows were up as it's winter and I have not driven the car yet with the windows down.....

Is there a possibility that a remote control in the neighborhood is doing this? Could it be electrical? Never heard of such a thing before. Any ideas?????Please advise......

LOL that's pretty funny! I doubt the CR-Vs windows have any wireless connectivity so it should not be a remote control issue. If it were one window, I'd say it could be a weak window motor assembly. Do you know if some person has access to your extra key?

Default posessed windows.....

nah....yer not crazy. I had a similar experience in my BMW 530i.

It was finally (i hope) traced to a sensor in the heating system that was failing & sending voltage spikes to ...."the Brain" - which in turn was flipping out & sending bogus information all over the car. Windows wouldn't roll up or down, doors wouldn't lock, seats wouldn't adjust....there was more. The problem surfaced after a car wash & after rain.

I have yet to get a CRV (still interviewing potential suppliers ), but i spoke w/ my Bro-in-law who is a very experienced wrench @ a Honda Dealership about aftermarket trailer hitches. He cautioned to make SURE the electrical connection was done properly, because "strange things could happen" if it was not correctly installed. I have concluded that the CRV probably has a pretty "evolved" electrical system, as well. And based on my experience - I'm no mechanic - but because multiple windows are involved, i would take a look at the window controls on the drivers door to see if there is any evidence of water in the switch assembly.

Either that or ghosts.

DEAR DOCTOR: I own a 2003 Honda Accord. My problem is that all the windows will sometimes be open when I return to the car. It does not matter what key I use to lock the car. I have been to three dealers with no resolution. They said I could be inadvertently opening the windows with the security key when placing it in my pocket. I asked to have the system disengaged but was told they cannot do it because it is wired into the electrical system. I have written to Honda and got no response. I have been locking the car manually, but the problem still exists.


DEAR JOHN: The power windows are computer-controlled in most cars, including yours. There are a few bulletins on this problem listed on Identifix. One of the bulletins refers to the body control module. At this point, check with a good shop that works with Identifix.

That's extremely weird for 2 reasons: only the driver's door has the 'auto' down feature, and windows don't work without power. Or do you leave the key in the ignition on accessory mode or something? Since the remote control can't lower the windows like in some other cars, something is seriously screwed in your car. Take it in man; no other choice. GOod luck.

In my 05 Oddessy I could click unlock on the remote and then hold unlock. All the windows would roll down until I let go of unlock. Great feature. But until I figured out this was why the windows would go down periodically it scared the cr@p out of me... Why don't they do it in the V? I already checked mine and it wouldn't...
