    Things you did not know you did not know............ 1

    Whilst the weather is chilly and I am forced to just sit here and drink tea I thought id occupy myself enlightening some of the newer owners, the old hands probably know these already, with a series of "you did not know you did not know this".

    So my first one........

    You have locked up the car and want to stick something in the boot but you dont want to unlock the whole car....... if you push the boot/trunk button on your remote it will open the boot for you without setting off the alarm!

    I did not make it up, just what is available. Whether its a good or bad function its up to the individual to decide. Dont know if this, or any of the others apply to your S type I only know it works on XK8/R's like mine. You obviously did not know about this function. Object achieved.

    It works just the same on my 2003, first facelift S-type, Jim... Not sure about the 1999-2002 versions.

    Wow. Cheers bud.

    I haven't got a saloon to try it on at the moment but it's something I'll try just to know.

    I don't know and can't imagine how it might be a theft problem?

    Nice one Frank, thanks.

    This function is also available on my X-Type but once it let me down (it's the X-Type so I should have known better) and the alarm nearly scared the watsit out of me!

    Things you did not know you did not know............ 2

    Another one perhaps? Same qualifications as above. Some of you 'old hands' will know this but some new owners may not.

    Your car is sitting there windows open, and roof down if you have the convertible, and you want to close everything up easy and quick. Stick your key in the lock. Turn it to the lock position and hold it there. The windows and top closes. Easy. No need to get in car and push buttons.

    The reverse is true too. To open the windows, and roof if you have it, stick the key in. Turn to unlock and hold it there. Windows will come down and the roof will open, if you have a convertible of course. Handy on hot summers days to vent the car etc.
