I live in Toronto and it's HOT today. 39C or for you American's 102F. We are proud owners of a New Cross Tour AWD/Navi. When my wife went back to the car from shopping she noticed all four windows down approx 2 inches ? Does anybody know if there is a special feature that Honda installed that rolls the windows down in extremely hot temperatures ?

She held the unlock button on the key-fob too long.

Holding the key fob button or turning the key in the drivers door and holding it, will open all windows and moon roof. Turning the key in the opposite direction and holding it will close all windows and roof. Great feature!

As has been said holding the fob lock, or unlock, button down for too long will lower the windows and open the moon roof approx 2" then if held longer to completely open, it's been a Honda feature for awhile now.

I never ever knew that! Excellent post guys, thank you!! So, if the car is off, you hold down the "unlock" button for a few seconds and the windows will move down??

Correct. The windows and sunroof will roll down for as long as you hold the unlock button, and the windows and sunroof will roll up as long as you hold the lock button.

Awsome, as soon as I read this I stood at the window with my keys and tried it! Couldn't get the windows to go back up so I had to go outside to do it from the car.

The all up windows/sunroof close feature only works with the key in the door lock. Safety/liability issue.

If you hit the unlock on key three times, it rills down windows part way and cracks open the sunroof..

Hit it once - driver door unlocks
Hit it twice - all doors unlock
Third time all of the above and windows lower. Great feature for hot weather.

Yea I read that in the owner's manual afterwards and was a bit dissapointed. Personally I would find the auto up feature with the remote much more usefull. At the risk of making myself look foolish, what are the safety\liability issues?

I trust one reason is that you could 'up' the windows remotely and a child or animal could have their head sticking out and strangle themselves. Not that far fetched if you consider you are on one side of the car and they were on the other.

Does the CT have the 'no pinch' set up in the windows, i.e., if the window feels any resistence it will reverse course and go to the down position? Think we had a Lexus with that function.

It should cause that feature actually malfunctioned on my 8th gen sedan and they had to replace and reprogram the window motor. It would go up halfway and then go all the way down again. When I went to the dealership and I was told that there was a problem with the motor and that was causing the safety mechanism to think there was an obstruction which caused the window to open... It was under warranty so no worries. If the accord sedan has it then its cooler CT brethren should have it lol...

I had a friend (moved to Dominican Republic) with an accord coupe that was able to reprogram the key fob to go up when you pressed the lock button twice... He also swapped the key fob for an acura tsx switchblade key (awesome btw lol) so I know for a fact its possible with the Honda key... Im going to try to get in contact with him so he can help me out... If not you can always buy a Viper alarm system and I believe you can teach it up to 8 fuctions other than lock and unlock lol...

Not certain what the issues are, but i heard tell that if you indavertantly pressed the button, or if it happened to get pressed while in a pocket or pocketbook, and the windows were to go up while a child or passenger was in the car, they could get caught in the window and injured or worse... That might be a stretch since they are supposed to have pinch control sensors, but you know how scared companies are of liability issues.

I'm just wondering why a child or animal would be left unatended in a vehicle in the first place?

Many people are idiots. I lived in South Florida for over 30 years. Almost weekly there would be a story of a child, pet, elderly person left in a car during the day. Temps would go over 120 degrees in less than ten minutes. Twice I remember a parent who went home, parked in the driveway, and left the baby in the car. The reason given, I forgot they were there in the car seat. Disturbing.

You can't legislate morality or stopping stupidity but I guess we have to try.
