And Another Thing...

Seth and I talked about this when I was in NC recently. Why can't power windows be hooked directly to the battery? In most cars the power windows don't work if the car is off. In some newer cars they will keep working after you shut off the car but only until you open the door. Why not just have them hooked directly to the battery like the dome light? Would they be some sort of drain on the battery even when inactive?

I am totally with you there. I hate power windows specifically for this reason.

Yeah, and the other thing we talked about is, why not have a crank AND power windows? You'd have to have a way to disengage the electric motor, but it can't be that hard. Still, the battery solution seems simpler.
