Scanner and Codes

Does anybody know how to get the windows to close when the top goes up using the key remote? Unable to find searching, so there!

iirc once the roof is coded for use with the key the windows should go up on locking/unlocking, my windows go up after the roof closes/opens whether I use the switch or the key to open/close it

Are we talking with the fob or with the key in the door?

I would have thought so too. When I put the top up with the remote it closes but the windows stop half way.

if you press the remote again do they go all the way up? I say this because on a few occasions I've had to press the remote button again when opening/closing the roof, for some reason the roof just stops at some point in the opening/closing sequence and does nothing....another press finishes off the operation

I've tried it. I'll set it back to default, then set it again and try. Even with the windows half way it better than not at all. I was wanting this option due to the frequent afternoon thundershowers we have during the summer. It would be great to put the top up from the office without having to get soaked.
