Cool Down your Ford, Before You Get In
May 21st, 2018 by Sara
When summer comes around, you would do almost anything to cool down your car before you get in. Ford has a few features that will allow you to do just that.
Open/close all of your vehicle's windows right from the key fob.
When you are in range of your vehicle, press and hold the unlock button for 3 seconds. This will cause all of the vehicle's power windows to open. If your vehicle is equipped with a sunroof, it will be opened in the vent position.
After they have started to roll down, you can release the button. The windows will roll down all of the way, unless you press either the lock/unlock button. Either button will cause the windows to stop rolling down.
Closing the windows is just as simple: press and hold the lock button for at least 2 seconds.
*Global Open/Close available on the 2017 Ford Fusion
**Global Open available on the 2017 C-Max, Mustang, and Taurus
Remote Engine Start
Vehicles that have both remote engine start and electronic climate can cool down your vehicle for you. By setting climate settings to automatic when remote engine start is used, the system will respond to the weather outside to moderate the temperature inside your vehicle. On hot days, the interior temperature will be set to 22ºC. If you have equipped cooled seats, they will be set to high. On cool days, the temperature will also be set to 22ºC. If equipped, the heated seats will be set to high, and the rear defroster will be activated.
*Remote engine start is available on many vehicles, not all of which have electronic climate control.
Schedule a test drive online, or come visit us at Island Ford to get a live demonstration of how these systems work.
