My car is unlocking itself once it is has been locked and the driver window is coming down.
Hello and Welcome..

My name is XXXXX XXXXX Im happy to help / advise you .

This problem you are describing is a known / common fault with this model Im afraid.. It has to do with either water ingress to the control module ( for those systems in question )or, a plain faulty module.

Any MINI dealer will know about this issue and can sort it for you quite readily... as should most general / small type garage... Again - it depends on exactly what is found on inspection - but it is / will be one or the other as above.

So the way forward now is to have it investigated / checked for water ingress - then go from there. If it is water - often the unit can be dried out and the ingress fixed and all is ok again... If not - if its a faulty module - or the module is ruined, it has to be replaced.

Do let me know if you need anything else at all -

Kind Rgds - MIKE.
