Remote window close

Post by Spagyi » Wed Dec 12, 2018 1:39 pm

Hello CH-R owners,
So I read many times that the remote window close feature can be enabled by dealerships and many of you had it done already. I contacted my salesperson who directed me to aftersales. I was told this feature is not available for the C-HR, but just to double check they will ask a technician. Callback in 2 minutes and they say not only CH-R, no Toyota have this function at all.
Any suggestions what to do?

Show them the manual and point to where it clearly states it can be done.

Thanks for that Karmalakas, I missed this in the manual. They will now DOUBLE double check it and call me back. :)

Contact Toyota UK and tell them which dealer is declining to do the changes. I myself can do it with Carista app and OBD adapter

It is available I asked for mine to be programmed when I bought the car. The dealer didn’t know about it so spoke to the manager of the service department who said it can be done.
Was done for when I collected the car.

Thank you guys,
Got in touch with Toyota U.K., waiting for their reply.
A little while ago I’ve seen someone mentioned an OBD device on sale that can program many things on the CH-R, but I wouldn’t want to pay for it and for the software for only using it once.

There are about 40 "hidden" settings which you can access with Carista app and OBD adapter for example. You can open and close windows by long pressing remote. You can change lighting settings, heater/ac settings, cruise control settings to name a few. I was disappointed when i noticed there was no auto lock doors while driving which was the main reason i bought the carista obd adapter.

My dealer did it with no problem. More recently I wanted the maximum volume set for the parking sensors on both occasions no charge was made.

Is there any list of those "hidden" settings? I'm curious ;)
