Not sure and haven't looked into it yet but my civic when the internal temperature reaches a certain temperature... the windows roll down on their own. It has done it twice now. Once before my eyes. The car is in parked position and off. Doors locked.
Is the fob somewhere without any pressure on it? Reason I ask is holding the unlock button, even inadvertently, say, pressed against something in a crowded pants pocket, results in all the windows rolling down.
Definitely, extremely helpful. That being said about the safety aspect of it... whoever leaves their pet or kids in a vehicle locked up like is just sick. That, in my opinion, is more than enough for some good jail time.
I'm not sure if there is a way to turn the feature off, at least not that I've seen.
Maine has a law where people are legally allowed to break windows if “animal’s safety, health or well-being appears to be in immediate danger from heat, cold or lack of adequate ventilation and the conditions could reasonably be expected to cause extreme suffering or death.”
