Customer Question
ES(###) ###-#### bought new...

ES(###) ###-#### bought new. A very nice car, but with a mysterious foible. Car is parked with all windows up and sun roof closed. Then when we come back to it later, all four windows are all the way down and the skylight is open. this happened a couple of times per year in the first few years so we did nothing about it, but now (52,000 miles) it is happening more often. any other reports of this? If so, can anything be done?

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this your first time dealing with this issue?

Yes.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your ES yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've done nothing myself. I wouldn't know where to begin, and I have discussed with a Lexus service manager. Up to now, it has been only a minor annoyance.

I kinda think it's the interrogation relay but would like to confirm this by looking at our wiring diagrams first and get back to you tomorrow evening if that's ok with you?

My first communication (written) clearly and completely described the problem. I don't see the point in presenting the same information orally. The suggestion that I spend an additional $26 to do so makes me think your program is a racket. To make me think otherwise, just answer my question: Is there any record of this problem in other ES 350s, and if there is, what has been done about it.
