Newly discovered feature.

Had my 500L for just under three years now and today I arrived home from work, locked the car and put the kettle on. A few minutes later my better half arrived home and asked me why my car was unlocked with all four windows wide open? A search on t'internet gave me the answer. Is it just me that didn't know that an accidental long press of the key fob would open all the windows?

Re: Newly discovered feature.

No, it's not just you .. though maybe you're the first one to admit it..

My friend had a super-dooper Audi which would sound it's alarm for a loooooooong time after opening or locking it with the fob. Eventually he found out it was a 'panic button' too. Pressing the button on the fob for too long caused the car to act like a panic/personal attack alarm.

And going back even further, a friend had a classic Riley, and one day he noticed a leather handle inside the boot .. pulled it and was most surprised when a panel lid opened to reveal the vehicle toolkit. He'd owned the car 25 years ..

Re: Newly discovered feature.

Sometimes it pays off to read the user manual

Not in this case. Can't see any mention of this function.

Re: Newly discovered feature.

You are right, sorry. Strange, I used this function from the beginning, and I thought I knew it from the manual.
