Anyone find themselves always opening the rear window on the drivers side rather than the drivers window?

On the Tigra I often attempt to open the roof instead of the window to be met by the audible charm it isn't possible. Thankfully it's the roof on the right hand side, the boot one o
Would be a bigger pain as you've got to get out to close it.

This isn't in mine or the online handbook

Press the unlock button once - It unlocks
Press and hold the unlock button - All four windows open fully.

Press lock button once - It locks
Press and hold the lock button it deadlocks AND any open windows shut.

Hands up anyone (probably previous Vauxhall owners) that knew that.

Yeah I knew that, pretty handy on a hot day, get the windows open on the car as you walk up to it, let some heat out.

I believe the similar happens if you put the key in the lock and keep it turned all the way. On my keyless Astra you just have to hold finger on the door sensor (that's in place of a physical lock) to get the windows up.

As a non previous Vauxhall owner, I didn't know that.Top tip Blum. All I've got to do is remember it for the next month and a half til I can try it.

You could practise with your current car, keep your eye in.

Nah, Isuzu might be GM, but electronics are stone age.


As for the Mrs car - 'Press to Unlock - nothing happens. Press and hold - nothing happens. Try tomanually unlockpassenger door from inside - nothing happens. One of the reasons forordering the Mokka!

On some Vauxhalls they only do the press and hold to close the windows not to open them.

Any one know how to turn this function off (especially the opening)?
Had the Plod knock on my door first thing this (Sunday) morning. "Excuse me, do you own that new black car over there with all its windows open? There does not appear to be anything wrong, except its rather wet inside."
I keep my key in my pocket and evidently last night I had inadvertently pressed and held the open button. As is the norm, the doors locked again after 5 mins, but the windows didn't do up. I think this is a design flaw! Note to self - don't put your car keys in back pocket then sit down!
