Default 2015 WRX Limited - Wonky Electrical

So I've been experiencing some intermittent issues lately that have me a bit concerned.

1. I get a constant "ding, ding, ding..." after I've shut the car off as if I've left the key in the ignition. I've got the limited with the transponder fob so no keyed ignition. This only started happening recently.

2. The key fob hasn't been working to lock/unlock the car nor will the transponder let me lock/unlock the car by touching the door handle, yet the car will start.

3. After work, I usually roll all my windows down to get the initial blast of heat from inside the car and then roll them back up when getting on the interstate.
The window will go down just fine using the auto-down feature. When I go to use the auto-up feature, the window will close completely then roll back down about 6-inches. This happens several times and then will finally close.

All of these issues started happening at the same time.

Any thoughts?

FOB battery is likely low. I know early Subaru FOB's use a small (1/2 length AAA) 12 volt battery, not a coin. Don't know about new ones. Chime may be telling you the FOB battery is low (check the owners manual?)

Window, may need to be relearned. I have done it on other brands when replacing window parts or battery died/was disconnected.

Thanks Charlie. I bought the car used and it was missing the manual. However,
I thought the sound might be telling me that so I replaced the battery (coin type) and the wonkyness continued.

I'll look up the manual online and see what the learning procedure is.

The window rolling back down is the anti-pinch feature kicking in. For some reason your window "thinks" it isn't all the way closed when it hits the top of the door frame. You could try re-initializing the auto up down feature. To do so, disconnect your negative battery terminal (you will lose your radio presets unfortunately) Now to re-initialize the auto up/down roll your driver side and passenger side windows all the way down, then roll them up holding the switches. Continue to hold the switches up for 10 seconds after they have closed all the way. Now test it out. If the auto down/up feature doesn't work, you didn't hold the switches long enough. If that doesn't work then a trip to the dealer may be in order. Hopefully you are still under bumper to bumper warranty.
