You probably didn't know this and most car dealerships don't tell you or they don't know either. Most of the time it is in your owners manual or on the car's website in the comments area. You can do some tricks with your car, but be aware, so can someone else.

According to the Huffington post, you can open your window. 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. clublexus explains how to do it on their website.
