Has anyone done this? My friend gave me one brand new cause he is too lazy to install it. After I installed it, I have noticed that my doors automatically lock after I start my car. I was wondering if this is normal.

By the way, the window roll up feature works great. It was an easy install after I found out which wires to use. The instructions were for a 350Z or G35.

While on the subject, anyone successful and making the rear windows auto roll down with the front?

I'll get more information on the "black box" (company who made it). The instructions were not for our Armada, but I got the wiring from someone on titantalk.com. I will post the info later on tonight.

I love this mod!!! I just wish the rear windows can join in the fun. :D

Is the auto roll up mod for the switches on the door or for the key fob? I have an '05 Armada SE and the window switches have auto roll up already.

He has wired the Armada windows to roll up when you hit the lock button on the remote, the reverse of the roll down feature on the unlock buttion. As a side effect, the doors now lock when you start the car. I'd like the auto rollup feature and would like to hook the roll down and roll up to the sunroof as well. Don't know if I care for the door locking automatically when I turn on the car however. PITA sometimes.

I'd like to have this mod, I like it when the doors lock. My Tahoe did that as well, but with it when you pulled the lever from the inside it would auto-unlock the door. It would be nice to be able to roll up the windows with the key FOB. Any more info out there?

Thanks 04armada!!! That is exactly what I have. The doors auto lock when I start the car, but they do not unlock when the car is turned off. You auto roll up the window by hitting the lock button twice on your key fob. It's great!!

The wiring instructions it came with did not show wiring for the Armada. A correction to my previous statement....I got the wiring from the DIY thread on clubtitan.

Does anyone know how to make it so that the rear windows will auto roll up and down with the front?

In reading the information on their site here is my understanding of some the questions being asked......

The Window up feature will only work for the windows already connected to the door lock cylinder ..... The same windows that come down when your turn and hold your key in the doorlock ..... I believe that is only the front two windows on the Armada but i havent put my key in the door since the day I bought it. Also because of this I do not believe that you would be able to control the sunroof either.

The auto lock feature can be disabled.

The system is NOT able to auto UNLOCK.

Again this is just my understanding from what I read.... I did not contact the vendor.

Due to the RAP system of the vehicle the KPtechnologies window module can NOT unlock the doors once the vehicle is shut off. The window up module was originally designed for the G35 coupe in which you can open the doors from the inside even if they are locked. It turns out that NO other Nissan vehicle has this feature. In fact, it was deleted from the 05 coupes.

To disable the auto-lock feature 1. Open the drivers door 2. Turn the igniton to the 'ON' position (not necesarry to start the vehicle) 3. Press the 'LOCK' button three times within 5 seconds (leave roughly .5 seconds between pulses for best results). Turn the igniton off and then back on and the doors should no longer auto lock!

We (KPtechnologies) are currently working on a solution for the rear windows. The major issue at hand is the lack of an anti-pinch system. Without the anti-pinch system the BCM doesn't allow for remote operation of the windows. We have engineered a bypass, but it involves using 3 separate window modules (instead of the 1 module that is needed on two door vehicles). It may be possible with a little additional wiring to include the rear windows with the front windows, BUT like I said, there will be NO anti - pinch system. The KPtechnologies window module is designed to STOP all windows from moving if a 'LOCK' pulse is recieved any time after a valid 'raise' command is sent (safety and allows for venting).

If anyone has any question please let me know, and if anyone lives in Mason and would like to take a trip to Dayton one weekend for a test install I'll clear some time.

Thank you all for your interest,

Oh, and I forgot, we are currently in the testing phase of a complete stand alone auto door locking/unlocking system that will be capable of being RPM controlled (once you hit 2,000ish RPM the doors will lock and stay locked until you shut the car off).

We are expecting it to be on our site in less then six weeks with a MSRP of $39.99 (three relays will be required for installation on Nissans - $19.99, and the RPM add on switch will be $29.99)

If you don't use the RPM add on switch the doors will lock ~6 seconds after you start the vehicle. There is also an input for drivers door pin so that if the door is open when the truck is started the doors will NOT auto-lock that cycle (they will still unlock).

Thanks again,
