Just bought a 1999 Audi A4 1.8. Very pleased with it but there are two
problems (maybe) with it. Just wondering if anyone else has had either and
knows what could be wrong. 1) On two occasions when we have got out the car
the drivers window has appeared to go all the way down of it's own free will
! Thankfully by the time you are out and shut the door it is obvious and you
can put it back up. Maybe we are accidently leaning on the button, but I
doubt it. 2) A high pitched whine, or whistle, at 60mph. It only occurs over
a very small range of speed (about 60 to 65).
Any advice would be appreciated.
Well, there is the "one touch down" feature to consider, perhaps the drivers
window switch is going to Heaven. And the whistle could simply be wind noise
at the A-pillar. Seems to affect some cars more than others, but if you look
at the A-pillar trim around the windshield it isn't hard to imagine why it

I'm replying without having checked what I'm saying, but I think I've
noticed before in my A4 that if you use the key in the lock instead of the
fob to lock the doors, if you hold the key too long in the lock position,
the windows wind down.
(My Ford Galaxy has a similar feature whereby you can open or close all
windows by holding the key in one or other position in the lock)
