Roof open/close keyfob issue.

Post by MalNCH » Tue Jul 17, 2018 6:22 pm

Just coded for roof open/close on the keyfob, now my drivers window one-touch close doesn't work, is that usual?
Will be changing back to inactive for the roof anyway, it's so erratic, sometimes it works, sometimes it stops half way, bit of a useless mod if you ask me. Wish I'd seen all the posts regarding the problems before I did it!

Sounds like you need to reset the windows.

There seem to be a couple of ways but I haven’t had a problem with lowering the window and keeping it pressed for about 5 seconds, then straight away raise the windows and keep the switch pulled up for five seconds.

Ill give it a go, thanks.

Edit: Just done it, it works..... :thumbsup:
Gave the roof another go.... stopped half way, Guess I'll have to get the Gap-Tech if I really want that feature.

I haven’t coded for closing off of the key but I often open it from the key and it can be a pain. I think it’s mostly down to keeping the button pressed firmly.

Gap-tech has to be the way forwards though, just a shame they are pretty expensive for what they are.

I can now get it to open successfully, after trying different distances and angles, it will work ok when you are about a foot away from the drivers door! Makes it pointless really. Closing refuses to work, always stops half way, for the price of the Gap-tech I can live without it.
