Hey everyone, searched and didn't see a thread in the 10th gen forums (a few on others though) but wanted to make a quick post for those that are not in the know. My car is a 1.5T Sport and was weary that this feature wasn't included (because of sport) so I tried it out. To get this to work do the following:


  • Press unlock once
  • Press and hold unlock and watch the windows roll down (assuming the sunroof as well but mine isn't equipped)

*If you stop holding the unlock button the windows will stop and if you want them to continue to roll down you have to restart the sequence.

To get them to roll back up, use your physical key and insert it into the door and turn to lock and hold it and they roll up. I believe there may be a sequence that allows you to do this via the remote but I haven't found anything quite yet.

Happy 10th-inning!

Glad you discovered the remote feature, but it's been on Accords since 2003 (7th Gen). Also, the remote can open all the windows and roof, but the physical key must be used to close them all at once.

Also opens the sunroof. My ‘04 EXL and all my Accords since had that great feature. Terrific in the summer!

^You are correct. This is the woman responsible for content within the Honda owner's manual...

I find it (BUTTOCKS) backwards that you cannot close the windows remotely. The convenience of that is during a sudden/unexpectedly rain, a quick visit to the nearest window is all that is needed rather than having to go outside, especially in a downpour. It's saved my interior many times here at work in my VW's.

I'm guessing they don't want the hassle of a decapitated chihuahua on the front page.

It's a safety feature. Imagine having a pet in the car with the windows open, and accidentally closing the windows remotely while you're away from the car.

I've seen discussions on other car forums of the opposite happening -- the key fob being situated in someone's purse of pocket in such a way that the windows ended up being rolled down remotely (inadvertently) when they sat down, etc.

Read the manual, didn't see anything mentioning it. :blah:
Thought I read the entire manual as well and never read this anywhere . Only tried it because a few other cars I’ve owned had the feature .
It's possible that you only have the "Owner's Guide" and not the full "Owner's Manual". The Owner's Guide probably doesn't mention it, but I'm pretty sure it's in the Owner's Manual. I don't think Honda gives us hard copies of the owner's manuals anymore, but you can order them for free. See this thread:

I suppose it's not entirely impossible that can happen. Never had it happen to me in 14yrs that I had a VW with the feature. I can see accidently pocket unlocking or locking the doors, but the window feature is a two-step process that needs to happen to initiate it. Oh well, I'll live with it. Just would be nice to be able to roll them up since we have the option to roll them down. We're entering T-srom season here, could be nice and sunny and five minutes later a storm can flare up.

That's why the windows are equipped with pinch protection, or "auto reverse" as Honda calls it, to keep Fidos neck and/or little Jimmy/Sallys fingers attached.

I'm not disagreeing with you -- I wish it was added to HondaLink as well. I'm surprised that VW hasn't reversed course on this feature due to pressure from their legal department.

Thanks . I did download the manual and obviously skipped page 187 where I’ve now found it.
