I'm not sure but I think that the window and sunroof will roll up with the remote only for the infrared type signal (used for 88-91 750's and some 735i/iL's). Required a continuous signal from remote transmitter to receiver (black nub next to sunroof switch)

Thanks for the info, Reab. Now we'll know for future reference that the 3 button remote does not close the windows and sunroof...I guess it's a trade off for a remote with greater dispersion. 8-)

91 735iL

OK, I tried holding down the buttons on the remote to achieve window roll up with no success. I also checked the owner's manual for the car which refered me to the owner's manual for the security system. Neither one of these manuals had information on closing the windows with the remote. Perhaps the feature was removed from the '94 740il series for some reason. As I posted before, the feature works with the key sequence, but not with the remote. I even checked the remote control dip switches to see if perhaps one of those controls the feature, but no luck. Has anyone been able to get the feature to work with a '94 740il and a 3 button remote?
