thanks for confirming. this is a fault with the door lock on the drivers side. the door lock has a switch it in that when the key is turned and held in the unlock position, the windows and roof go down. what is happening is that when you get out the switch is erroneously sending this signal to the car. You need to have the door lock replaced.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
