2 strange happenings

I have noticed two things wrong with my car and hoping someone can shed some light

1. When opening the driver door the window normally moves down slightly and then up again after closing the door right? Well mine is still doing this, except rather than just a few mm its rolling more than half way down and then all the way up when i close the door. Its not every time but has happened 4 or 5 times over the last week.

2. Occasionally when i press the gas i dont get a response for about a second then the power kicks in. Its as if im in the wrong gear like 5th instead of 3rd. Thats what i thought it was the first time it happened but just as i was about to check the gear the power came back. This happened maybe 3 times over the last 10 days. Have not noticed a pattern to it yet but will see if i can.

1.

If you press (perhaps accidentally) the unlock button on the fob twice then the window rolls down as you describe to make it easier to get in to the car if space is tight.

2. Sure you're not triggering traction control?

regarding your windows mate that generally happens when you press the unlock button twice! its apparently done to help you get into the car easier when it tight spots!

Ok i must have pressed the button twice. I was aware u can open the windows by holding the button down but not of this feature. Its never happened for last 3 months and then a few times in days so thought it was a fault.

And no its def not traction control
