Just recently, 1 week ago, purchased my first Cadillac, 2005 STS V6. Love it, what a great car.

Have performed forum search re: Secure Car Feature. Can anyone verify for me that the 2005 does NOT have the "Windows Up upon pressing fob lock button" as indicated it does have in the Owners Manual. Read where some have said the 2005 model was intended to have this feature but does not. Others have said it does.

Anyone have a '05 that performs this function ?

Thanks, Dave.

My '05 also does not do this as I thought it would.

My 2005 v6 does not do that with the fob. Just manually and or with voice command.

Bummer. I got a little excited reading through the Owners Manual. I always thought this would be great feature to have. Oh well.

Thanks to those who chimed in.

Dave.

In my 2006, I had to get the Dealer to enable it. It works now!

What did you tell the dealer? I have to goto the dealer monday I believe so I can check for the 05 guys.

I saw somewhere that it wasnt available on '05, either '06 or '07 when they started it. So what I dont get is why its mentioned in my manual. Went to the dealer and played dumb, hoping they could put it in somehow, but just came back after the other warranty repairs and said not available for my year.

My understanding is that it wasn't available on 2005's. My car was ordered in late '04 as one of the early '06's (in service Sept. 2005) The DPO's down-payment receipt on his Visa was in the manual.

I just said, 'The windows don't roll up when I hold the 'Lock' remote button. Is this not supported? It's in the manual.'

The work Invoice says, 'Customer states windows do not operate from KEY FOB.'

200 'Turned that function on'.

So does this means '06's should have this feature, or does it mean we need to have the dealer "turn it on" through diagnostics?

Thanks!
