Electric windows stopped operating using the window switch but could be operated using the key but now the key will not operate the windows either and they are stuck in the open position. Can anybody help please :angry:

When you say operate with the key, do you have a titanium model where you hold the buttons for 5 - 10 seconds and it closes all the windows? if so, seems to me like potentially a relay problem,reseat the relay and also check the fuses assosciated with the windows. failing that it could be a broken cable.

Thank you, yes i have the titanium model, i checked the fuses and they kept tripping, we eventually traced the problem back to a wiring issue in the boot.
