I dont know how to help you, but there was a guy on ls1tech (i believe) that when he made right turns it rolled one of his windows down.

If I am not mistaken this is a planned feature.

Check your owners manual. My husbands 2010 Mustang does the same thing. Something about cabin pressure and slamiming the door?

I believe it is called window indexing. Check page 21 of the owners manual that you can download on this site. Hope this helps.

Never heard of that problem, but to reprogram the window.....Sit in car with door closed and key on. Roll window all the way down and immediately without taking your finger off the control, roll the window all the way up. Hold the switch in the up position for 2-3 seconds. This reprograms the window. It may help with your problem, if not you need to have dealer look at it.

Ok I misunderstood you. It does sound that what you are experiencing is a problem. I would call the service center and describe it and ask how to proceed in reprograming. Also described by 67 COnvertible up a few posts.

Did you try the other keyfob that came with the car? It could be the one she uses went bad.

A co-worker had a newern Nissan Ultima. It had a safety feature that when the car "sensed" that it was sinking in water it would roll the windows down. During Hurricane IKE it flooded about 3 ft. Sure enough all windows rolled down. She was watching the water rise and noticed the windoes going down. Maybe the Camaro has this feature and its shorting out?

Well if it were my car doing it, i would have it in to the dealer the same day that it happened. It would still be kind of a funny quirk even if it were my car. Crazy things like that on cars amuse me, sorry man no offense to you, I feel bad for you that your car is doing that, and i hope you get it fixed soon.

This is sweet. They should just make it the opposite, so that when you hold the unlock button it will roll the windows down, and roll them back up when you lock it.

I know with some key fobs and some cars that you can roll the windows down. ive never had a car that does it nor have I looked into what series of buttons to push to do it, but maybe something got cross wired and its rolling the windows down when it shouldnt be.

I wish the windows and sunroof could close using the key FOB. Also wish you could lower the windows with the FOB too (not the sunroof in case the roof is wet from rain).

Sure would be nice to vent that heat on these 95 degree days.

The car has 1500 miles on it and it just started last night.

So this does NOT happen when you attempt it???
Maybe she has some extra-internal RFs pulsating???

Very weird....

MY VW Passat had a feature that if you held in the lock key on the remote the windows and sunroof would close. If you held in the unlock button the windows would roll down. Great in the heat.

I never tried this in the Camaro yet, I will check tonight,
