    All Windows Express down...how?

    I saw in the manual that if you hit the unlock button on the key fob TWICE all the windows would express down. I haven't been able to make that happen. Is this a personalization setting I am missing or is it not native to every trim package?

    Thanks in advance for the help and Merry Christmas ATS owners!

    Eric

    I tried it didn't work for me. I know in some cars I've own holding down the unlock button would do it but again not in this case.

    Re: All Windows Express down...how?

    EricDOhio and Zr1mom, I did some research for you and did see the following information in your owners manual (page 2-21).

    "Express-Down/Up Windows
    Windows with the express feature
    allow the windows to be raised and
    lowered all the way without holding
    the switch.
    Press or pull the switch fully and
    release it to activate the express
    feature.
    The express mode can be canceled
    by briefly pressing or pulling the
    switch.

    Express Window Anti-Pinch
    Feature
    If any object is in the path of the
    window when the express-up is
    active, the window will stop at the
    obstruction and auto-reverse to a
    preset factory position. Weather
    conditions such as severe icing
    may also cause the window to
    auto-reverse. The window will
    return to normal operation after the
    obstruction or condition is removed.
    [See page 2-22 for information regarding Express Window Anti-Pinch
    Override.]"

    To double check if the Express Down/Up Windows feature was installed on your ATS, I recommend checking in with your dealership. I'm also happy to consult my resources for you; simply send me the last eight of your VIN via email at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com or via private message, and I can research for you.

    Happy Holidays!

    Re: All Windows Express down...how?

    Hi Katie - I believe the question was with respect to using the key fob to drop the windows remotely. I've had that in Infiniti...press and hold a button on the fob and they could go down remotely (in order to air the car out for example on a hot day). I think you provided the info from the manual on how to use "express windows" using the door swithches, not via key fob? Does the ATS have the key fob remote windows down feature?

    Ah-ha! Sorry about the confusion, ATS Toronto. The information I pulled was unfortunately the only information I could find in the owners manual regarding any sort of Express Down/Up Windows instructions.

    I'm happy to keep checking my resources for additional information, however! In order to do so, I would need the last eight of an owner's VIN. Please feel free to contact me via email or private message if you would like me to explore the situation further.

    Best,

    Katie

    Re: All Windows Express down...how?

    Hi Katie - found this info in the owner's manual, in section 2-4 about Keys, Doors, and Windows...in referring to the key fob it says: "On some models, pressing and holding unlock button will open all of the windows." Sounds like it should be working for Eric and Zr1mom.

    Thanks,
    ATS Toronto

    It might be like "power folding mirrors" which is referenced in the manual but I don't think the ATS has. Also, I have not checked yet, but does the ATS have auto high beam? The manual addresses that also.

    I don't believe that any ATS model comes equipped like that - I believe it to be an XTS feature only.
    On the XTS forums there are threads with questions on how to disable this, the windows have come down inadvertently.

    Re: All Windows Express down...how?

    I think BlueSkies and Pever are likely correct in that it is a XTS feature. Ironically, about a month ago I saw my first XTS at the mall; red and beautiful. It was RAINING pretty darn hard and ALL THE WINDOWS WERE DOWN. I just knew something was amiss as rain was in the forecast and it was cold enough and no one would leave their car windows down IN A NEW CAR at the mall. I felt so bad for the person who purchased that XTS as they were going to come back to a new car - SOAKED.

    Perhaps it is a good thing the ATS doesn't have it!
