Drivers blown away by four secret key fob features – how many do you know?

DRIVERS routinely use their car’s key fob to get in and out of their vehicle.

But the capabilities of key fobs go far beyond locking and unlocking your car doors.

The latest vehicles manufactured are equipped with a key fob that allows a driver to lower all of their windows at once, reports the Huffington Post.

Verify that your key fob lowers all of your car’s windows by pressing the device’s unlock button twice while holding the unlock button on the second press.

This handy window feature also lowers your vehicle’s sunroof and is ideal for cooling down your interior on a hot day.

Parking can get too tight for comfort — and that’s why many key fobs allow drivers to enter a sequence that folds their car’s mirrors.

According to Consumer Reports, Chevrolet and GMC pickup trucks offer drivers the ability to fold their mirrors by pressing and holding the lock button on their key fob for a full second.

Your car’s security alarm is a secret key fob feature that hides in plain sight.

Drivers can use their keys to activate their vehicle’s security and fend off criminals at home or in deserted areas such as an empty parking garage.

Certain manufacturers such as GMC offer memory seat settings in a driver’s keys.

If you’re sharing a car with your partner or family member, one key fob will remember your seat’s settings, while another set of keys will initiate a different seating position.

GMCs with this vehicle seat memory feature will show you whether your model recognizes key fob number one or two, reports GMC.

Once you’ve adjusted your car’s seat to your preferred position, you can press and release the key’s “set” button.

A beep will sound once you have triggered your save seat command.

After releasing your key’s “set” button, press and hold memory button one or two depending on what fob number you saw in your driver interface.
