I know my previous cars had this where pressing unlock/lock would open/close the windows and sunroof; but haven't found anything for this one yet.

Discovered the feature by mistake too, but it was pretty cool to have. I think even the latest Fusions have this feature.

Just hold the unlock button down for a few extra seconds and it rolls the front drivers door and passenger door windows down and opens the sunroof.
Comes in real handy on a black car w/black interior on a hot day.
Being as my Focus has the same black/black combination I wish I could do the same thing with my 'intellakey' fob.
Hey everybody -

Interesting! I'd use it to cool the interior before starting it, and I have a silver Focus. Nothing is listed about this in the 2012 Focus owner's manual. However, I recommend submitting this idea to our Ford Social site here: http://social.ford.com/. Have you all seen your dealer about getting this set up?

Then again when its 100+ in Texas, most people don't roll down their windows.
Noles1983 -

I'd always recommend driving 2-3 minutes with the windows slightly cracked at first. This will improve A/C cool down time. Check it out in the 2012 Focus owner's manual (5th print, pg. 118): https://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conte...OwnerGuidePage.

GN Prime and Noles1983 -

I can think of some other reasons, too. Noles1983, My thoughts exactly!

If you're interested in this feature, I recommend visiting your dealer to see if/how it can be set up.

I wouldn't mind it being on my Focus. Please remember to submit this idea to our Ford Social site: http://social.ford.com/.

Take care,
