I've got a 2012 Honda Accord EX-L V6, bought back in Nov. 2011. I just recently found out about how you can lower your windows using the remote key. However, when I tried it last night, it would not work. The manual even points this out and says to press unlock, then unlock a 2nd time and hold.

Tried it several times and all my car will do is unlock the doors and nothing else.

Does anyone know if there is some setting or feature I need to enable in order for this to work? My car is 100% stock if that makes any difference.

I would love to have this feature working during the hot summers.

Thanks!

Do you have a touchscreen with menus? It may need to be enabled there first.

Video I just saw shows press lock, unlock and then press and hold unlock. That differs from what you said. Typo?

The few cars I've had with this, all doors were locked and windows up. The few times I used it, the car was always sitting awhile so perhaps the security needs to kick in too. You can even try if it works off the key in the door. Turn to unlock, then unlock again and hold.

For most Honda’s and Acura’s.

You can open all of the windows and the moonroof from outside with the remote transmitter.

Press the UNLOCK button once to unlock the driver’s door. Press the UNLOCK button a second time, and hold it (do not release the button). The remaining doors unlock, and all four windows and the moonroof will start to open. To stop the windows and moonroof at any time, release the button. You cannot close the windows or the moonroof with the remote transmitter.

You can also open and close the windows and moonroof with the key in the driver’s door lock.

To open: Insert the key in the driver’s door lock. Turn the key clockwise, then release it.

Turn the key clockwise again, and hold it. All four windows and the moonroof start to open. To stop the windows and the moonroof, release the key.

To open the windows and the moonroof further, turn and hold the key again.

Nah, that's pretty much the same thing. Essentially it's just press unlock once, then press it again and hold and the windows should come down.

But I have tried that combo too and it doesn't work either.

That feature also does not work on my car (the one where you put the key in the door handle and turn to the right and hold).

Yup, that's what my manual says, but when I perform those operations, it doesn't do anything.
