    I had no idea that my key fob would do this. If you press the unlock button once, and then press and hold it a second time the front windows of my vehicle roll down.Try it!

    If I put the key in the door of my 08 Jetta and turn it clockwise all 4 windows will go down, if I turn it ccw they will all go up. A guy at a shoot saw me put the windows down and asked how did you do that? I showed him and he asked what kind of car is that, I told him VW and all he had to say was "damn Germans".

    It worked 10 years ago in a BMW that I had. It doesn't work in my Hyundai Sonata. Mike.

    Depending on the vehicle, it will do more than that. Amazing what you learn when you read that owners manual.

    Some of the new GM cars tilt the mirror down for parallel parking when you put it into reverse. Must have the mirror selector to the mirror you want tilted. Returns it to normal when back in D

    Ctreay, will your key also unlock the doors or do you have to crawl in the window? :)

    Holy Moly, the economy is worse than I thought. In just ten years poor Bulge went from driving a BMW to a Hyundai Sonata!

    I drive a 2011 Pathfinder and it works like a charm. But I tried it on my wife's car (2006 Hyundai Azera) and it doesn't work on that. Maybe it's just the newer cars?

    My wife's Sunfire has power door locks, but the fob won't put down the windows....Wonder if it's because they are manual windows? huh...huh..
