How to instantly lower your car windows remote?

02.10.2012 How to instantly lower your car windows remote?

Nowadays every car has the air conditioner, but sometimes we open our car windows. The temperature inside your car can get insanely hot on sunny days. When you get to your car and it's boiling hot. What are you going to do? You lower the windows, don’t you?

Today you can use the key remote to open the windows in your car. It’s a really convenient feature. But not each car owner knows about this ability. 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.

What’s the trick? It usually involves pressing the remote's unlock button, then pressing it again and holding it down. In some cars, instead of using the remote, you can insert your key in the door lock and turn it clockwise, release, then turn it clockwise again and hold. Turning the key counterclockwise will usually raise the windows back up. Some cars will also include the sunroof as a window in this operation, while some convertibles with automatic tops will shut.

Certainly, you’d like to know what cars in particular use it. Based on an internal CNET poll, Reddit user comments and CNET user comments, we've confirmed that the trick works on various models from the following manufacturers:
