This worked one time for me and hasn't worked since. When I locked my car, and held the remote in the locking position, the windows went up.

Am I missing something here?

The windows operation by remote is via the IR part of the Transmitter. IR has limited range and require line of sight and can be affected by bright sun light.

You can also use your key with the same effect.

In my 94 SL600, the key in the door lock, turned to lock the doors, can also close the windows if held in the rotated position.

as long as you are holding the button on the remote for lock or turning and holding the key in the lock position the windows will close.

if the IR doesn't work anymore try re syncing your windows. i did that and it worked for me.

I put some new batteries in it today, but still nothing after it worked for me a few weeks ago. I also cleaned the IR lenses. How are the windows re-synched?

The IR receiver is at the outside door handle, you may want to clean that plastic too.
Normally you have to be within a few feet and aim the transmitter at that receiver's plastic window.

OK, and "Duh", I should know this car by now. It works from the driver's side only. I Should have realized that. They go uuuuuuup and they go doooooown just like they are supposed to with the remote from the driver's side of the car.

Thanks for all your comments and replies. I'm OK now.

So far, am only having success with the driver's door IR sensor on the door handle. Where is the one for the trunk or front glass?
