: It says for safety reasons you cannot close the windows with the remote. I too wish you could close them with the remote. Don't understand the safety reasons invovled.

Basically, they don't want you trapping anyone in there. But, if you think about it, all the windows, and I believe the roof have "pinch protection" on them, so it shouldn't be an issue. I believe the real deal is if they allowed it to be done in the US, someone would sue because of it, so they turned it off. It is available in Euro models, so you KNOW it's just a flag in the ECU somewhere.. Maybe the chip people will find it while they are in there running around, and give you the option of enabling it when you buy a chip, or just release the info to us, and we can have the dealer do it.
(After signing a release like having an airbag removed).
