Re: How to open and close windows outside of car!

I've gotten into a lazy habit using this feature at Pay & Display carpark. I'll lock the car, go to the machine, get the ticket. Walking back to the car, I'll hold the unlock button down to lower the windows; stick the ticket to a window, then walk away holding the lock button down, then turning back to check the windows are fully done up.

My female friends always give me a "Oh Wow!" when I do it, how easily amused they are!

Cool Re: How to open and close windows outside of car!

I have got my misses with this a few times. She'll park up and get into the flat (3rd floor) and put the key on the side and start putting the shopping away. I'll grab the keys aim out the flat window and fire down the car windows, tell her off for leaving them down and make her go back down and close them! She still hasnt' cottoned on!

Re: How to open and close windows outside of car!

remember to turn the alarm off otherwise when you walk away and leave it with all the windows down,the alarm goes off and all the neighbours give you the "surburban stare"

Re: How to open and close windows outside of car!

did you also see the thing on top gear where you put the key against your head and it increases the range of the signal!

it works and it's brilliant!

means you can check your car is locked from miles away! (not literally miles)

Re: How to open and close windows outside of car!

Re: How to open and close windows outside of car!

Doesn't anyone read the manual ? Why do Fiat bother to print it and obviously charge for it, if no-one can be arsed to even flick through it. It has lots of useful info in there. All the above is in it.

Its a shame the manual is so p**s poorly translated from the original Italian. Spent millions on R&D and give some work experience student a tenner to write the manual.
