Exclamation windows down

Yesterday after work went to truck and all 4 windows were down halfway. Any ideas why this would happen?

Re: windows down

Something in your pocket could have had the unlock button mashed on the key remote. When you hold the unlock it will roll the windows down as long as you hold the button

Re: windows down

I seem to recall someone else posting about this a while back... but I'm not sure how to search for that thread. A brief search did not find it.

Edit: here's one thread.
and another.

Re: windows down

Correct Dusty, I'd like to add that you have to press the unlock button twice and hold it on the second press for the windows to roll down.
You can also roll the windows up by inserting the key in the door lock and turning it to lock two time and holding it turned on the second turn.

You put your right foot in,
You put your right foot out,
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey Pokey
And you turn yourself around,
That's what it's all about.

It under the "Power Windows" section of the manual. At least in the '09 manual it is.

Re: windows down

I really liked this feature. We have a baby and putting him in an unopened car in mid july is inhumane to a dog. With this feature I can open the windows in advance of leaving. Not to seem ungrateful for this stroke of genius, but why, WHY did they not make it possible to close them remotely??? Ever heard of rain?!?!

Re: windows down

Having them close remotely could be a safety hazard. Picture my older son pushing his little brother out the window as he sees it going up remotely on the off chance that it will cut off circulation to his windpipe.... he tries to yell but isn't getting any air... his older brother is laughing... Dad comes out to realize holy crap, what the heck are they doing....
