Turn Off Auto Window Vent Feature

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to turn off the auto window vent feature when you open a door? Thinking about getting windows tinted and I'd imagine you don't want the window rolled down any trying to get the film on.

OK, cool...good to know! They must just close the door and flatten out the bottom strip from the inside.

My tint guy I've used for years on cars told me I couldn't wait and take car soon as done but wait to pick it up a few hours after he tinted it because like the Camaros the car needed to sit awhile when done since the windows move up when closing doors.

They apply the tint wet, so they spray the crap outa the window AND the tint simultaneously, and slide the tint down between the glass and the inner belt mldg. before squeegeeing it complete. :victory:

So even thought we've determined not much of a factor for window tint, as for the original question...is there no way to turn this feature off?  No need, just curious at this point.

It is not able to be disabled unless of course the battery is dead or disconnected.   It is designed to prevent damage to the weatherstrip when the door is opened.

OK. But I always thought it was to let air pressure out to facilitate closing the doors. There are cars with door posts that have this feature; clearly they’re not worried about weatherstripping.

Many years ago, convertibles had a problem with weatherstrip warranty claims.  The lowering of the windows prevented the warranty claims.  As things advanced, hardtop vehicles could also take advantage of this feature.  If the windows did not lower you would eventually tear the weatherstrip which allows the car to become more air tight.  I have not seen a full frame door lower a window when the door is opened on a modern vehicle.  That said, if you tear your weatherstrip by disabling it, then I am sure you will not mind paying for the replacement yourself based on your comment.  I offered a reason and you rejected it so you apparently did not need anyone to offer a reason after all.

Sorry bro, did not mean to be difficult. Looking back, I never asked “why” this feature is there because I thought I knew the reason.  I asked if it could be disabled for window tinting. Everyone posted that that wasn’t needed, but never answered the core questions as to if it could actually be disabled (until you did). I wasn’t looking to actually do it, just curious if it was a feature.  We spiraled off course and my bad for taking us there.
