    Might be something that needs activating. Guess you are pressing and holding the button? Unlock to open windows, lock to close them?

    I've just bought an SRI Turbo two weeks ago, my windows don't operate via the keyfob either. I'll have to read the manual first to check if they should work.

    Removed for safety reasons? The handbook says it should work and a guy at work has a three day old Meriva, his works. I'll ring my local dealer in the morning to see what they say, I wonder if it can be re enabled through tech2.

    Hi. I have 1.7 diesel elite version and this morning I went to get in my car to find all the windows wide open.. Can the remote windows be switched off by myself or can this only be done by the garage ??

    Basically when you lock the car for the second time it "dead locks it" ie: you can't open the doors from the inside of the car,, but if you do it when your inside the car and turn the ignition it will unlock the doors again...
