Auto Windows Down (Front) - Upon Remote Start

Article I read recently quoted - "Remote (fob) Operated Windows (front windows - down only): Enable an individual to cool down their vehicle passively by opening front windows remotely"

http://www.theautochannel.com/news/2...02/480854.html

I would like to know if this feature is really available. Have any of you tried to program the auto windows down for the front windows when started remotely?

I know we're in winter season conditions for most of you. But in AZ, the vehicle interiors still warm up during the day with temps above 75 degrees.

And in the summer it's like an oven when exterior temps can reach up to 118. Thought this feature would be very functional for us in warmer climates.

This does work, if you push the unlock button on the remote and hold it for a few seconds the front windows will go down.

Correction! You must press the unlock button TWICE on the remote and on the second press, hold the button in and the windows will go down.
