  1. Hi all,
    Just a quick query, I am looking for a kit or commercial add-on that will
    automatically raise the electric windows in my VX commodore when I use the
    remote to lock the doors.
    I have seen these on a Porsche and other euro vehicles

    using it. Check their catalogue.

    It's my understanding that the reason this is not done normally is because
    of safety issues. The button on my drivers window is auto for down ie.
    single push but for up you must keep your finger on the button.

    A company called EL (Electric Life) Electric and claiming to be
    the "power window professionals" were advertising power window
    kits that look somewhat more substantial and modern than the
    Jaycar type in "Just Parts". Not in the current edition though
    so I am not sure if they are still in business. I have never
    used them so I make no claims. No prices or website but they
    gave their addresses as 2/90 Heathcote Rd Moorebank and 295
    Sydney Rd Coburg. The also claimed to do exchange motors and
    other parts and bits.

    Do they auto-reverse on obstruction?

    I don't know, in a few years of using it I haven't managed to stick any
    obstruction in the window....

    Rented a Volvo A50 while in Europe last year and it would auto-wind up
    any open windows when the central locking remote was used.

    Dunno if the Aus imports of this model do the same.

    There is a unit advertised in the Jaycar catalogue that winds up any
    'down' electric windows when you hit the remote locking button

    There is a unit advertised in the Jaycar catalogue that winds up any
    IIRC, the first jaycar unit to do this was next to useless. It would just
    trigger all the 'up' switches at once for a set amount of time, and people
    with older power windows that don't zip up in half a second, esp when all 4
    are going, ended up with half-shut windows.

    Have they put some kind of current trigger in them now to turn off
    individual windows when they're shut?

    I have no experience of these - just saw them in the 2005 catalog and thought
    I'd pass the info along
