Looking at the PDF manual (Page 51), it is said that you can open and close the windows of the car, via the remote key fob.


To open:
*press the unlock button once on the key fob
*Press the unlock button again for 3 seconds


To close:
*press the lock button on the key fob for 3 seconds.


I cannot get this to work, and I cannot find evidence of this being an optional extra (making it just something I do not have)...


Has anyone got this to work at all ?

Yes, works fine. I think it is standard fit on Titanium.
If you have one-shot on all windows you should also have global opining/closing also.

Hmmmm... I will kick it tomorrow [img]smileys/smiley18.gif[/img]and try again... I am going to try resetting the bounce back computer on each window and see if that does the trick. The manual says something about making sure the memory of each window has been set before trying the global open/ close feature...

Failing that, I will point it out to the dealer on Wednesday when the car goes back to the dealer[img]smileys/smiley19.gif[/img]

Ok, that did the trick, I had to reset the memory on all the windows individually, now the global open close trick works from the key fob. [img]smileys/smiley14.gif[/img]

Manual Pages: 48 & 49




Overriding the Bounce-Back Feature
Proceed as follows to override thisprotection feature when there is a
resistance, e.g. in winter:



1. Close the window twice until it reachesthe point of resistance and let it
reverse.

2. Close the window a third time to thepoint of resistance.




The bounce-back
feature is now disabled and you can
close the window manually. The
window will go past the point of
resistance and you can close it fully.
Contact your authorised dealer as soon as
possible if the window does not close after
the third attempt.




Resetting the Bounce-Back Feature
1. Lift and hold the switch until thewindow is fully closed.

2. Release the switch.
3. Lift the switch again for one moresecond.

4. Press and hold the switch until thewindow is fully open.

5. Release the switch.
6. Lift and hold the switch until thewindow is fully closed.

7. Open the window and then try to closeit automatically.

8. Reset and repeat the procedure if thewindow does not close automatically.

Yes, I had one window that would not shut (rear offside). Reset the memory on it and now its fine.Its all to do with preventing children from getting seriuos damage to their fingers by setting the auto stop. As an ex RR and Bentley engineer we had probs with the strength of the closing forces and you would be surprised just how powerful they can be ie could cut a pencil in two!

Oh dear. I tried the global opening/closing in my B-Max and the back windows sprung in to a life of their own!!!! After 7 attempts to close them via the door switches, I finally managed it! It was like something out of a spoof horror movie! [img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]
