Default Open sunroof and roll down windows remotely!

This has got to be one of my favorite features of the car...

Hold down the 'unlock' button on your key for 30 seconds and watch what happens to your car.

This is a feature straight from the factory that, suprisingly, not everyone knows already!

30 seconds? On mine it begins in less than 4 seconds.

The ES300/330 RX300/330 loaners I've driven have done the same as well and I'm sure the rest of their current lineup does too.

i have had my gs for like 3 months and i just last week found out that it remotely rolled down the windows and the sunroof the dealer did not even tell me about that option or the key in the door to roll up or down the windows so iam glad i learned about this on CL

My BMW also does the same.

My Lexus guy never told me about this either.


I got a video with my BMW that showed all the 'bell and whistles' like this. It even showed how they developed the car in their lab (and race track) in Germany.

It would be nice if Lexus gave a video with the car that showed how to work everything.

Yes this is quite an exciting feature.

I accidentally found this out when I got the car a winter or two ago and accidentally held down the key and got some snow inside.

And to close everything, put the key in the door and hold it while locking it...I'm sure evrrrrrry body knows this. Too bad you can't lock everything using the remote like the MBs, (and BMWs?).

Only the driver side door works.

I wish we can press and hold the "Lock" button to close all the windows. That will be good.

BMW is like the Lexus. You have to stick the key in the door and turn to close everything. (at least on 3 series)


The "remote all windows down" is a great feature for those of us in hot climates.

Not available for North America. Would have been nice.
