Default Remote Windows?

My '09 Big Horn had a cool little feature that when you pressed 2x on the unlock button and held it down the two front windows would lower. My '13 Sport doesn't seem to have that and I'm a little bummed about it. Is there a different way to do it on the '13s or am I just outta luck? If not, that's too bad they would do away with something like that...was kinda handy in warmer weather to help ventilate the hot air out while walking to the truck

I have a 2011 Chrysler 200 convertible and took for granted some of things it had.

When I bought my 2013 Ram I just expected to double click my remote and my windows would go down too.

I can still make my windows go down as I'm approaching my truck, but that involves me begging my wife to run a head of me with the keys. It's worth noting that this hasn't actually happened yet, but the possibility still exists!!

The other thing that I took for granted was my media centre on the convertible allowed me to load images to the hard drive, apparently there is no option to load images to the 8.4A system.

Several posts on here have said that feature was removed. I guess people kept rolling down their windows at the wrong time. I have a 13 Sport also and yes that would be a cool feature.

I honestly don't know how they would do that?

I've had my keys in my front pocket, back pocket, jacket pocket and have yet to have my windows go down without me doing it on purpose.

I know that my current fob for the 2013 truck is different than the 2011 convertible, but I don't now how similar the fobs are for older model Rams?

Perhaps the buttons are raised slightly on the Ram fobs!

I had an 2009 Ram 1500 and accidentally had the windows go down on me in the middle of a storm. I was in my buddy's garage and my truck was just outside. I was working on something that required me to stand up and down a lot and apparently I had somehow pressed the buttons in my pocket just right to roll the windows down. I found out that the windows were down during heavy rain when my horn just starting going off constant, no intervals like the alarm. I was like "what in the hell is going on!?" I ran outside and my windows were all the way down. I got it to stop somehow but then on my drive home a few minutes later my horn would go off randomly when I turned my steering wheel. This all was around midnight so I'm sure a few people loved me. I'm guessing water got between the electrical contacts of the steering wheel and steering column that completed the connection without pushing on the pad. What a fun night that was...
