:werd:Eric L. said:You can effectively double (or more) the range if you press the transmitter with one end of it (the top) touching the bottom of your chin. Apparently your body acts as an antenna, greatly extending the range.
No one believes me when I tell them it. Then when they try it, they become believers.
To close the windows just turn they key in the door lock to lock position and hold it, like magicfdonaghy said:I've tried holding down the lock button to see if the windows roll up, but got nothing. Imagine it's a safety feature in case someone or something is in the window.
Here's a little trick I tried last summer and works extremly well in increasing the range considerably. Sometimes it has not much to do with the transmitter but rather the recieving end of the opener. Every one who saves stuff must have one of those telescopic TV antennas which are meant for portable TV's in the junk box. Take the little wire found on the opener (antenna wire) and cut off the fitting on the end of the TV antenna and splice them together. Leave the antenna extended and tie wraped to the opener. This increased my range about 4X.The other thing I've noticed about the Murano is that the built in garage remote is great for range too! I can open our garage door from over 100 yards away (end of our driveway). Again, wife's GM minivan requires you to be within 10 yards of the door. Can't blame the battery on that one as it runs off the car's electrical system! Chalk it up to weak transmitters in GM vehicles.
