Why would you post that you got it figured out and not come back to tell anyone what was wrong? What's messed up is OP came asking for help in the first place and now others need it and OP disappears. That's awesome.

Ok, so I know this post has long been dead but I am bringing it back because I had/have this issue and found a way to turn it off for right now till i can put more time into figuring out why it is happening. So for all of you having this issue here is the quick fix.

Remove your driver side handle, 2 bolts behind the black grommets on the door. And disconnect the little plastic relay over your key cylinder. I used a tiny screw driver and just lifted the top one and it came off super easy. That is it. The problem will stop. When you have more time you will need to find out why your key/window opener option is going nuts on its own. I haven't had the time to completely open my door panel and see if there is a wire grounded yet but at least till you get to that point you can roll up your windows and turn off your car and actually get out. I really don't care about the putting key in door and windows roll down option or the holding the button to roll down my windows. But if you do you will need to fix it because removing the relay from the key cylinder turns it off from what i can tell. If you get stuck like I did in a parking lot and need to still go in because you can't just up and leave, then remove the screw in the switch panel of your driver door, pop it off, turn on your car, roll up your windows and pull the plug to your window switches. This will also stop it till you can get somewhere with more tools and open your handle. I hope this helps others!

Just to let you know I had the original problem listed in this post.
I would roll up my windows
Turn off car
Open door
and both windows would roll down without having any control from the switches.

I have had pretty much every window issue there is, so a quick guide for everyone.

If you roll your window up and it gets to the top and rolls back down 1/4, or 1/2 way you need to do a window motor reset.
If you open your door get out and the window just keeps going down a little bit and not going back up when it is closed, you need to do a reset on the door procedure for when the windows drops for it opening and it goes back up when closed.
If you can't roll up your window (up or down) or it will only work sometimes then you need to change your window motor.

This is all based off personal experience and me fixing my own Z. So I hope it helps others.
