Least that's how it is on mine.

Which brings up the question - why is it disabled when the battery is disconnected? Mine's been in the shop twice recently, battery disconnected both times, and both times I have to go through the annoying process to reset it.

This. If you press the button all the way down or up, you will feel the button go through a detent. Don't push it that hard and the one touch won't activate.

Thank you Bolto. It's not either/or...the functionality is there for both modes, just don't push the button all the way down (as you said).

If you do push it past the detent, simply push down again to stop. You don't have to pull it up to stop it.

Sounds like some are experiencing different results than others with use of their one touch, including me.
If I press to open, then a quick pull-up on the button, the window reverses and returns to full closed. Setting to an exact open point is impossible.
Like with the old days and the lady elevator operator, trying to level the elevator floor even with the platform, failed attempt after attempt.
Yes, just try to crack the window 1/2 inch open to vent the parked car. Impossible with one touch. One could never be fast enough to hit the button just right to do that.
A least not the with my one touch button.

Well, I see I'm not the only one less than thrilled with one touch.
And consider the invite to car jacking as well. How would one crack the window 1 inch to talk to a stranger insisting on getting your attention, without the window opening at least fully half way down.
By then, while you sitting there playing with the button and the window, you'd look up to discover a gun in your face. And your window fully open.

I'm assuming that is why ford deleted the visor garage door controls from the 2013 models. If you car were stolen, not only would your car be gone but the thief would have full access to your garage/home. I'm betting that ford removed the garage door visor feature for security reasons and thus avoiding possible lawsuits from which.

But anyway, I will take time to call my ford guy on the one touch issue.
And post back for those truly interested with what they suggest.
Do you really think that your window being up is going to stop you from being carjacked? You know the glass isn't bulletproof right? And if you had a garage door opener would you not have the remote it comes with, or a universal one, with you anyway?? I don't get your logic...

You don't need the remote with you in the car. You program the garage door opener in your car and that's it. You must not have this feature.

Hi sportage,

I wanted to touch base with you and see if you had any updates for us. You can also post your suggestion about one-touch windows to the "Your Ideas" tab of http://social.ford.com. Submitted ideas can be posted on by members of the community and are reviewed daily.
