I thought that Kappasphere (Lillie) had that as a possible mod item (remote).Loft_guy said:Don't get me wrong. I LOVE my Solstice. But wouldn't it be nice if you could program with the remote/DIC to have the windows go down/up when you unlock the doors or trunk or up when you lock it... would make putting the top up and down much eaiser.
Ya know, at the very least it seems strange that they didn't have an electric loser on the trunk. Hopefully aftermarket will offer something.ntouched said:Since we're dreaming. Let's go for the gusto........A remote top (complete electrical without the manual stuff). :yesnod:
MOST cars have a handle or something to close the trunk with... can't say the same for the Solstice. An auto close would be nice, but how easy to impliment?Editguy said:Ya know, at the very least it seems strange that they didn't have an electric loser on the trunk.

I wouldn't think it would be any more difficult than any trunk; and it already has electric release. It would eliminate the closing problem most people have. When I did it Saturday, I didn't get it the first time but got it the second. I just think it would be simpler to have power close.Fortimir said:MOST cars have a handle or something to close the trunk with... can't say the same for the Solstice.

If GM were to give us a Solstice with everything on it that has been suggested on this forum, I think it would end up being the Cadillac Solstice! :glol: Loaded to the gills, and priced like it.crawdadsolstice said:These thoughts are great, but we also have a whole host of other things to consider. This car is intended as a "back to basics roadster". All the automatic features break that mold. I know, so do a whole group of other add ons, but I just had to bring it up.
why?Fortimir said:The G6 windows go down one inch EVERY time you open the door, and go up automatically when you close the door.
Are the power-window switches AUTO? i.e. one press and the window goes down without having to hold the button?
The parts bin is exactly why this would be so simple. Caddies have had these for decades. The release and closing mechanism is one unit. It doesn't require any cables and only a simple motor, and the wiring that is already there. You push the trunk lid down until it engages and the motor pulls it down into place. And closing it that way would be no different than doing it manually (therefore, no more problematic than it is now), except that it would close first time, every time. I have taken them and retrofitted them to another car. I may do that if I'm fortunate enough to get a Sol.crawdadsolstice said:Let's consider the automatic closer for the trunk. The automatic opening is done through a latching solenoid, which should be fairly small and light. An automatic closer would add quite a few other cables and motors that we have limited room for now. It might also make the problems, that have been discovered with the closing of the top (locking mechanism not set for storage), even worse than they are when the trunk is closed manually.
Remember, they were bringing this car to market mainly from the GM worldwide parts bins, and in a fairly short period of time. I like the ideas, but also see the various pitfalls that may happen when trying to implement them.
Why do the windows in the G6 go down every time you open the door and go up when you close them?TOY4TWO said:why?
