Did you know that many cars, trucks and vans can instantly lower all windows with the key remote?
A convenient feature that’s been around for years, but remains unknown to many car owners, is the ability to lower the windows with the key remote. This allows you to begin cooling your car without having to get in first. Unless the car dealership told you about this trick or you happen to read manuals for fun, you may have been unaware of this ages-old trick. It doesn’t work on all cars but it might be worth checking out to see if it works on yours.

My Infiniti has this feature, but I wish that it didn’t. If the ‘door unlock’ is pushed for a few seconds, all of the windows will lower. The problem is when the remote is accidently pushed while in my pocket. I’ve come out to the garage on several occasions to find the windows down. If my car had been parked outside in the rain, all Hell would have broken loose…
Well … if I tranlate “for years” to my own experience it means over 15(!) years of using this feature at Audi and very few other brands I used to own. Never had a problem with unwanted use of remote. %-)
And of course, the other way around as well. Also very neat when your car is outside with the windows down, and it starts to rain…No need to run outside, just hold the “close” button 🙂
I just went outside to find my car doesn’t have this feature. I don’t know whether to be sad or not….
