Default Open windows/moon roof via wireless remote?

According to owner's manual (pg 114), windows and moon roof can be opened by press and hold the unlock button. This feature can only be programmed by Lexus dealer according to owner's manual. I asked my dealer and they could only program to work with key, not unlock button. Has anyone tried programming the unlock button?

Huh? This has been a standard feature on all the GS models, weird they would make it a dealership option to program it.

Yep - it works with the unlock button (I believe that is the default setting - press and hold the unlock button). Show the dealer the customization section of the manual

Interesting! I did not know this. That is awesome. Will give it a try later today.

Are you talking about 4GS? According to owner's manual, not only it is not default, only dealer can set this function.

correct. only the dealer can set this function. had mine done a week after i got the car once i realized i couldn't do it myself. the only thing i don't like about this function is that you can not close the windows with the key fob which IMO is pretty dumb. i was told it was a safety issue. press and hold the unlock button and the windows and moonroof open. to stop all you have to do is release the button. so you can open the window to any height, to stop the window at any time release the unlock button.

Okay, I am going to bug my dealer.

I have that feature on my 2010 IS, so 4GS should have it as well.

This feature exists on first year 3GS . 2006 to be precise. But dealer has to set it.

You are right - according to the owner's manual, that is NOT the default. However, in the "Lexus personalized settings" papers that I received from the dealer, that is listed as the default! (and it worked that way when I took delivery of the car)... (but it is marked as a "dealer only" customization in this insert)

Not sure why it differs between the manual and the "Lexus personalized settings" papers, but regardless, the dealer should be able to change it for sure.

Hey guys,

Out of curiousity, why do you guys like this? We have it on my wife's EX35, and frequently I find that the windows are rolled down when we don't want them. It's a pain as the key seems to accidentally get pressed and held in our pockets. I guess it's kind of nice in the summer to cool the car a bit - but I'd prefer to go with the security of knowing that it won't happen by accident.

My $0.02 - Here in TX, it gets pretty hot in the summers (triple digits - F). If the car is parked in a parking lot (say at a mall) in the afternoon, it gets incredibly hot inside. Opening the windows and sunroof while approaching the car lessens the 'heat wave' that hits you when you get into the car.

The button needs to be pressed for a few seconds continuously (while in range of the car) for this to work, so the likelihood of this happening by accident is low.

Accident consideration is the reason why this setting needs to be done by the dealer. As someone pointed out this feature is very useful during hot summer.

btw to close, you can hold the button on the door, you dont have to take the metal key out....

In my case, dealer didn't have to set anything since you can actually set it up all by yourself. Just using the owner's manual and the key fob is enough :S
