I can not get my remote power windows to work.
I have it checked on in the menu. It was my understanding that by holding the unlock button on the remote for 3 second they would roll down.
I can't get this to work. Any tips or tricks?

Thanks

You need to hit unlock button once and then a second time you hold and they should open .... may need to check in forscan it is enabled

I've tried that also and it is enabled in forscan. That's where I knew I had it. The one thing I have not tried yet is start the truck remotely. (next)

when the truck been sitting in the sun it's nice to let the hot air out of the truck before you get in it.
Isn't that what remote start with full blast AC is for? I do have remote start and it is amazing for cooling the truck down before getting in.

Are you able to have your A/C on full blast with remote start? When I remote start mine it is always on a low speed. It’s hot out here and the truck read 136* when I got in yesterday, would love to have it a little cooler.

you need to have the setting for remote start to AUTO ... it may be set to your last settings

yes i love this option personally, much more efficient than starting the truck, specially in open areas where the breeze is plenty to cool off the cab. I just wish they would of put a remote roll up in there too.. Come on FORD.

My 2017 fusion and 2018 ford edge can do this with the same remote I was surprised your couldn't roll up the windows but there may be something in forscan to enable it been looking through the settings

I agree. With the Ford Pass app you can remote start from just about anywhere and have it cooled before you get to your truck.

My remote start climate control is in Auto, usually plenty cool if I wait 5 or more minutes. Even a single minute is so much better than nothing. Not sure how auto works but I suspect it goes off of internal cab temp? Or maybe just outside ambient temp. When it was 109F on the temp reading it was on full blast so...
