XLR 02672 arrived at dealer and was checked out during prep.

Dealer was kind enough to turn over manuals for perusal over weekend.

Noted that there seems to be no mention of raising/lowering of top from fob.

I had thought this was a feature on cars I've seen. Does anyone know if it was added after publication of manual?

I seem to recall it functioned by constantly depressing one of the fob buttons.

Has there been an addendum to manual?

Raising the Deck Lid

Please let me shine some light here. Some people think the top can be operated from the remote and that is incorrect. What you are able to do is raise the rear Decklid. There are 3 ways to do this.
1- The Decklid button located on the left side of the lower dash

2- The button located on the remote.

3- The touch pad located at the top of the license plate pocket.

Due to the requirement that GM has the function that works in a line of sight fashion. The RKF Remote could operate the top even when behind a wall. For that reason the top can't be operated from the remote.

I spoke to Luxurymotorworks and they are interested in making a system to remote the top and windows of the XLR. they need someone in the area to bring thier :boxing car in order to create a remote system. they are located in Monrovia Ca. they would require the vehicle for a couple days. tel # is 1-626-256-4849. any one in Ca. interested? :boxing :jester

Clearance

Just another not along Allen's line of thinking.

The trunk really raised up high when it opens, by itself or as part of top lowering.

You need to be careful when "demo-ing". I did it in the garage where I park, and the trunk cleared a sprinkler pipe by a whole 2 inches.

If you had a remote and could do it around the corner as Allen mentioned, you might get a nasty surprise.

Is there any way to stop the trunk in mid-stream, if you notice too late that iot is going to hit something overhead? Like a garage door coming door, that can be stopped.

problems were many, but the main one is how the XLR is electrically powered. Everything about the car is powered up at all times and is then turned on/off by being grounded. Grounding won't begin until FOB is picked up and ....I don't know....They didn't understand it and I think GM made it pretty difficult for anyone to understand!
Electrical and security is far more advanced than they had experienced with Lexus and Porsche.
