Today my wife told me that when she walked up to the car leaving work today, she unlocked it with the FOB button (not the door handle button) ALL of the Windows rolled down simultaneously.

Is this a normal feature of some kind?

I think that is a feature enabled by holding the fob unlock button for a few seconds. She probably did just that.

This is a feature that can roll your windows down with the FOB. You simply press unlock once, then press it again and hold it for about 3-5 seconds. This will roll all the windows down at once. I am sure she simply did this by accident. Perfectly normal and I use it all the time.

Yeah, I just read this on another forum. I guess she inadvertently double hit the button and held it too long.

She still unlocks the car Old School rather using the smart key close proximity functions.

and I though you had to sit on the key FOB to make that happen ?

I though you just needed to HOLD the button down for X secs not a double push and hold

the other Volt hold down longer Button to make something else happen is the START button.

Gen I - it's a nice feature.

Gen II -- I don't know if it's still around, but if it is, I'd like to get them to roll down.

Okay, not quite that Old School. Just using the fob buttons to lock / unlock vs. putting hand on the door handle and opening while the fob is in pocket/purse or hand.

I still do this, even if I have a fob for my 2009 Chevy Equinox, and had one for my past 1995 Buick Regal. The battery will last longer because I have seen examples of drivers that cannot open their doors (or in some cases start the engines) because their fob battery is out of energy. I can also lock the doors without the key or the fob, too. All is explained in the owners manuals.

Key, what key? No keyhole, no need for a key.
