remote window operation using fob key on Corolla Hybrid 2020 GR sports 2l

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Hope you have no been driven crazy by social distancing etc.

Does anyone how to enable remote operation of front and rear windows  using the key fob on this model

It is suppose to work after a second long press having used the remote unlocking. Mine just makes a lot of 

clunking noises on the second press. 

Thanks

Louie

From what i've seen on previous posts is that your dealer can activate that for you. I think it's free but that might depend on the dealer. The same goes for autolocking doors when you reach a certain speed.

hi king crimson

i had this sick feeling in my gut that someone might say that after i read the fine print in the owners manual. However in todays times visiting the dealer is not an option for me at present. Afterall all the dealer is going to do is fiddle with some software the trick is finding it. I  am still looking at the moment its only available in the States as an iPhone app.☹️

Thanks anyway

Louie

My dealership set my Corolla Design  to open and close the windows and pan sunroof via the remote which took them less than 15 minutes and it was done for free charge while I waited

My dealership also told that they do not have the option in the software tool to "tick" these. I also wanted to open/close the roof and windows using keyfob, but oh well..

UK dealer enabled the keyfob  window option for me FOC a few days after i collected the car.

Auto locking of doors once moving is not an option in UK as King Crimson comments.  After some research it looks like its not available in UK. I believe its something to do with crash testing! Some standard requires a auto-locked door to be  operable from the inside after a crash and they had difficulties in recruiting a living crash dummy for testing!@!!🤕🤕🤕🤕

Pretty sure i saw a post made about the autolocking doors and everyone said that it can be enabled by the dealer but i could be wrong.

My car is a Toyota Corolla 2.0 Design and it a UK model and my dealer found the option to remote open and close the windows and sunroof with no problem. If your dealership is telling it can't be done I would contact Toyota customer service and they will contact Toyota technical services and they will tell you and your dealership it can be set up.

I got my dealer to do it on my 2019 RAV4 before delivery, also FOC.

I'm surprised by this.  It's available on the 2019 onwards RAV4 and most of the systems in the new Corolla seems to match the RAV.

In fact, it's enabled by the owner through the menus on the multimedia screen.  There's also an option to change it so the doors lock when the selector is moved away from "P" and re-lock when "P" is again selected.

I think it's the fact that most dealers don't even know what they can even do. As Rivo said his dealer didn't have the option to open and close his windows from the key fob while other dealers did have that option.

You can enable these features using the Carista app and an Obdlink LX / Carista OBD device, on the Corolla. The Obdlink LX is better than the Carista OBD device when it comes to hybrid HSD4 features, as the HybridAssistant app shows a lot more detail, but for the Carista app, it makes no difference. If you can do this with an app, surely the dealers must be able to do it.

Yup worth a try its really annoying that i have to refer to a dealer for every slight mod did not have to do any of this crap with my golf but so far pleased with the car so will persevere. I will give my dealer a call tomorrow for suggestions but its a real pain getting through to the workshop have better luck getting through to the Pope.I will keep you guys posted if there is any trick software available.

It's certainly useful on days (like today) when the sun makes the car hot while parked to be able to open all the windows as soon as within keyfob range, so the worst of the heat has been let out by the time you get it the car.

If an app on a mobile phone can make these changes, then the dealer certainly should be able to, it's just a matter of how helpful and willing they are.

Hi Guys

Definitely not going dealer route. I have ordered the Carista dongle from Amazon at about £25 plus membership fee which is about £13 for a month or £33 for a year. 

This should enable  you to carry out all the custom mods on your vehicle. I am not 100% sure on membership fees as they vary enormously from country to country so will confirm.

I have downloaded the Carista App from the Apple store on to my iPhone and will commence fiddling tomorrow when my dongle arrives.

Many thanks to all for your contribution  I am  blown away by response and will keep you guys posted on how i get on as it if it all comes together it should save you guys  a lot of inconvenience. ( I hate sitting around in dealers showrooms for whatever reason)

You get a free month with the Carista dongle.

Well the first month is free - but you do have to enable a subscription. Not sure how it works on Apple products, but on an Android device you enable the subscription via the Google Play store, but you can cancel it immediately and just use the first month free, without being charged. Any other changes you want to make in the future, you'd have to take out another subscription.
