I have heard of this problem. May need to go back to the dealer if still under warranty. If not, I might try disconnecting the battery for 30 mins and see if the system resets on reconnection.

If you check the handbook I think there is a way of resetting the windows. If you have a Powershift Auto and disconnect the battery, when reconnected, the car may go into limp home mode, with a 'transmission service required' warning. Be prepared to clear the fault codes or visit the 'stealers' or garage. Advice is don't disconnect battery unnecessarily.

you can reprogramme them by running them right down then up again and then continuing to hold the button up for a few seconds when they have shut.

Thank you for the help and replies to my window problem, it seems to be working now, without any fault finding from me, so perhaps it was the cold weather after all. On a separate note, having read the articles re. Rusting pipes to the turbo, I have checked mine today, and can see no rust. The car is a 2014 Titanium, without the sun roof .

Driver and passenger windows very sensitive to cold weather. They will freeze up at the drop of a hat. You can only wait till the weather warms up or do what I do and pour warm water over them, normally does the trick

Ive found that the windows of many cars will freeze if its cold enough. I too pour warm water on them then quickly open and close them to dry them off.

Front passenger door lock of my 07 Focus used to freeze up in cold weather. The door could be opened but not locked, so that it had to be tied shut if you were going out in a hurry. A blast of WD40 or de-icer into the lock mechanism was usually enough to sort the problem.

However, I never experienced frozen windows until we bought the B Max. Most odd.
