Here’s a Little Known Trick With Your Car Remote
You probably won’t use this feature much in the winter. Unless your car dealer told you, or you read your manual….pause for laughter…most people don’t know about this trick with your car.
According to yahoo autos, The trick usually involves pressing the remote’s unlock button, releasing it, then pressing it again and holding it down. In some cars, instead of using the remote, you can insert your key in the door lock and turn it clockwise, release, then turn it clockwise again and hold. Turning the key counterclockwise will usually raise the windows back up. Some cars will also include the sunroof as a window in this operation, while some convertibles with automatic tops will shut.
