Default Roll-down window with key feature...not working

When i first got my 2007 Z, the window roll-down feature with key worked fine ( put key in door, turn to left for 2 seconds)...but now, years later, it doesn't respond at all? ... Is it something with the window motors? (still stock) or battery?... maybe a fuse issue? Any information would be appreciated, thanks!

Have you tried resetting the window motor? You'll have to take off the door panels to do it.

Do they still roll down when using your key fob?

No... i have not tried resetting the window motor... didn't think about that... They roll up and down fine with the regular panel switches in the car, but not the key...btw, i didn't know you can roll down your windows with the key fob ??... 'not on the 2007 base model, at least..... thanks for the replies!

Yeah you can, push and hold down the unlock button on your key fob for 3-5 seconds.

You can also roll up your window by putting your key in the door and turning to the right (srs).

Best way to cool down your interior after sitting in the sun, that way you don't have to climb into an oven.
