When the temperature starts to rise outside, it can soar higher more quickly than you may realize inside cars. When you first step inside a hot car, the first temptation is to blast the air conditioning as high as possible to get through the heat and drive off. However, many don’t realize the key remotes they use can also lower vehicle windows, saving you time and money. This comes in very helpful when you want to start cooling off your car before getting inside a vehicle, according to news reports.
There is usually a pretty easy trick to it, and if your car dealership didn’t explain it to you, you may have to try it out yourself. It normally involves pressing the unlock button, releasing, then pressing it again while holding it down. The same trick can be used in some cars that operate without a remote. When you enter the key into the lock, turn it clockwise, release, then turn it the same direction and hold it. Turning the key the other way will roll it back up. In some automobiles, this trick may also include the sunroof. The trick was confirmed to work on several models of vehicles including Audi, Dodge, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lincoln and Mazda.
Despite this trick’s cleverness when you are about to get back in your car on a hot day, you should never leave a child in the car. Temperatures can reach fatal temperatures inside a car. Simply rolling a window down remotely would not lower the temperature enough to prevent a child from experiencing heatstroke. As a personal injury lawyer, I advise caretakers to absolutely make sure they never leave their child in a car. You can create reminders for yourself such as leaving a purse in the backseat so you don’t forget to look behind you. One mistake can lead to deadly consequences.
