I own a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid and recently went out of town for Christmas. I parked my car in long-term parking. I came back tonight, walked to my car, and noticed that the windows were completely down on all four doors and the sun roof was rolled open as well. None of my belongings (just some papers and a bag) look like they have been disturbed and I don't think there is anything missing. I don't know whether it was locked or not, because I started the car remotely and pressed the lock button as I walked to the car. It's rainy and freezing cold here and there is no way that I left them open before I left.

The police were not impressed and stated that they thought that a low flying jet rattled the electronics.

Has anybody had similar happen? Should I be worrying about an electronic theft? I am planning to go to the dealership tomorrow and have them evaluation the computer but should there be something that I have them evaluate specifically?

Hello, welcome to the Forum!

 

Don't think a jet flying over is the problem and having the Dealer check things is a good idea.

It may also be in the criminal line, look at this link.

Would it be possible that by exident you pressed the unlock button when leaving the car in first place?
Not sure if I ever triggered the global open feature but I have triggered the panic alarm with the key in my pocket multiple times on my FFH.

The "rental" car I'm driving right now has the same global open feature and all window were down when I went outside with the dog before going to bed a few weeks ago. It was rainy and I'm 100% sure the windows were closed when we arrived hours before.

It's not a bad thing to have it checked out but as disturbing as it sounds it might be just bad "timing" with the key in your pocket.

I don't know about how each car's timing reacts to the global opening but mine requires me to hold the keb fob 'open' button for a good 2-3 seconds, and then sometimes I have to try twice.

If this even occurred in my car it would not be because I accidently initiated the global opening, it's too hard to do.

 

A simple unlock is possible and easy to do, hopefully the Dealer can reset some software that will prevent this.

It can also be disabled by the Dealer (Owner's Manual Pg 72).

Which is possible if the fob was inside a pocket, purse, or piece of luggage where something was pressing up against it constantly -- I wonder if the OP could have done something like that by accident, and the windows were actually rolling down as he/she walked away from the vehicle?  We've seen a couple threads where this is the most likely culprit.

I have come downstairs to the FFH at our apartment to find all the windows down because the key fob got bumped in my pocket. When I try to use my fob to do this I find that it isn't easy like GrySql says. But when the fob is bumped in my pocket it happens very easily lol

One thing about Global Open, though, is that it doesn't roll back the sunroof. It only opens the vent option on the sunroof.

That's a good point! I don't have a sunroof so I wouldn't know.

Thats a good thing too, rather have a small opening at the back than the roof wide open in case it rains or snows.

Global opening works fine for me lately, but the global closing doesn't roll up the front passenger window, leaves that one down Any ideas?
Thanks.

Does the window roll up / down from inside the car when the buttons are used?

It sounds like this window has lost the one touch up / down feature. If that's the case the global open / close also doesn't work.

I just had this 3 days ago.

It did forget how to do one touch as well, can I get the window to remember again?

Hold the button to roll the window up and down and hold the button once the window is up / down until you hear a slight click. It might be enough just do up portion but easy to test.
