So today when going to work i shut my door and keep hearing continuous clicking/locking sounds from the door. I open it and close again, everything fine.
Then randomly when driving the window cracks open and shuts like it does when you shut the door, that quarter inch or whatever...
And now when i arrived home and shut the door and locked the car, when walking away from it i hear the windows going at it 3-4x in a row, up, down, up down like it does when you open/close the door...and then stopping finally...

There is nothing stuck in that space above where the window goes up, no moisture as far as i can tell...

so wtf is happening lol?

I’m thinking there’s a sensor or a relay in the door cavity that controls that. Sounds like yours is wigging out. Being a 2019 something like that should be covered under your factory warranty I would say.

When you pull either inside or outside handle -- but not enough to actually unlatch the door latch -- the window should drop. This indicates the door handle switch is working.

If you release the handle the window should go back up. This is another confirmation the door latch switch is working.

If you go ahead and open the door the window should stay down. And this is yet more confirmation the door latch switch is working.

The window dropping like the door is being opened then going back on its own suggests the door handle switch (or the controller that provides this functionality) is bad and recognizes a false/spurious door handle switch event but then recognizes the door latch switch is signaling a closed door and raises the window.

The car has a warranty. Time to use it.

You do have the symptoms of a bad door latch switch
