I have a 2002 CLK430 and the windows roll down and sunroof opens after the
car has been shut down and the door is closed. It has happened only a few
times but the last time I got a car full of rain. Has anyone experienced
this phenomomenon and if so what was the issue? The dealer says they can't
duplicate the problem so they can't fix it. There is no rhyme or reason to
the timing of it. Sometimes is is hours later when it happens. ?? Any help
would be appreciated. Thanks.

It may be possible that you work in close range with your car that when you
sat down... you accidently press open and continiously hold that button down
to open up sunroof and windows in your pant. I suggest you take your key out
to test the theory... of course, keep an eye on your key location so you
don't lose it.
The "Convenience Feature" operates via infrared, so I'm not sure how
their trigger to roll down if you had this in your pocket. Another way
to test would be
to cover the IR port on the door handles and see if this suppresses the
again, you can also seek dealer advice. They can check to see if there
are any TSBs....
a result of similar reports.
The car does have the express/up down windows. This happens when the car is
locked and the key is is not close to the car.. in the house on the counter.
It did it hours after the car was shut off and doors locked with the key in
My car alarm would go off for no good reason, to find out it was a bad
sensor that thought the glass in the window had been broken.
If the dealer hasn't put the car on its computer to see if any abnormal
readings have been recorded, they should.
Probably a bad sensor or computer sending module.
