I had a 2013 LS 350 that used to be able to close or open all the windows and the sunroof from the remote by pressing twice the unlock or lock bottoms in a quick sequence and keep it pressed for 3 seconds. Is a feature that needed to be programmed at the dealer. You might talk to the dealer I'm pretty sure this car has it too.

I you have the "Hold" button on your steering wheel it will keep you stopped in traffic, so you do not have to keep your foot on the brake. Good feature.

Now for the part that you might not know, if you are in "hold" mode (the yellow light says hold on the dash) and you unbuckle your seat beat the emergency brake is applied. And the Hold function does not work on a hill.

Why would the hold button not “work” on a hill? Not enough gripping power?

It has to be a pretty steep hill for it not to work.

I can only tell you that on the top of my driveway that is fairly steep, I tried it and a message came on that said Hold doesn't work on steep incline, or something close to that.
