Seems like you can't open all the windows remotely via the FOB? There is no such option in any of the vehicle menus. My Volts (Gen 1 and 2) both had this ability. Gen 1 came with it enabled from the factory, and a dealer visit was required to deactivate it. Gen 2 allowed for the function to be toggled on/off in the menus.

Is there any way to actually enable remote window down in the Bolt?

^ Nope! No "all windows down" via the FOB like in the Volt.... and not available on the app either.

I loved that feature on my 2014 Volt and used it every hot summer day before getting in to the Volt.

Now I turn the AC on before shutting down the Bolt and do a remote start via the app before going out to the car.

"All windows down" via the FOB was really useful, but I guess GM read the forum posts by people complaining that they accidentally rolled their windows down during a rainstorm or overnight, whatever... and killed the feature.

Well that's just dumb. I wonder if they took out the feature based on Volt owners who unintentionally lowered all the windows down. I think by default the feature is disabled on Volts but I can see some unsuspecting Volt owner messing around with settings without RTFM and one day there are birds sharting all over their interior.

I too had a 2014 Volt (best car I’ve ever owned) and just bought a Bolt. The single biggest feature I miss is the “all windows down” feature. Never got into a hot car with the Volt. Usually I don’t remote start my Bolt until a minute before I get in and during summer time in Alabama it’s still extremely hot! I really like my Bolt but I loved my Volt.
