Thumbs down Automatic window issue.. In the car wash 😑

This just happened: I returned to town from a weekend ski trip in MN. I filled up with gas and purchased a car wash. As I'm entering the wash, I pull up the window switches to make sure all windows are nicely sealed. As the car wash starts, the front passengers side window goes down. Thinking "WTF," I roll the window up and it bounces back from the top and it goes down to about 3/4 open. I hit the switch again, same result. Here comes the spray foam! Window still doesn't stay up and I catch a face full of cash wash. Now I'm fu*king livid. Prewash foam all over the interior.

The cash wash has automatic doors at the entry and exit. No escape! After the second blast of foam inside the car I throw it in drive and pull as far ahead as possible. The sprayer arm is luckily covered with a protective foam as it bumped the rear corner of the car. The car wash must have went into safety mode and shut down, door opens and I drive out.

Forgetting its Sunday, I blasted across town straight to the dealership mad as can be. The window still won't stay up. Luckily I don't have to drive anywhere and I have a garage to park in.

Ford is going to give me a full detail, and/or replace the interior components if there are any stains. 1,500 miles and this is the first **** time the windows have been down. Extremely pissed off!

Yeah, I figured holding up would stop the window from coming down but that didn't work. I got the window to reset after reading online about it. I'll be chatting with Ford tomorrow.

You are probably pretty close! A Mexican 12 year old.

I have had the relays and motors replace. And with the newest repair they dented the interior molding by the window! Now waiting on that. The only way to close the window is to go up a little at a time without activating the auto up to get super close too window closed. Such a pain. But has been good since last repair. But had it in 2 or 3 times just for the windows. Sucks cuz I have had some issues and still love the car.

I could not find a car wash open yesterday and was pissed, after reading your post maybe that was a good thing, especially considering what happened to my car when I got back.

I was cleaning out the garage and suddenly all four windows are down. I can't get the windows back up without turning the car on. The key was in my pocket and the unlock button must have been held down without my knowledge, which apparently makes all the windows and moon roof open. So I went in to settings on the left screen, window settings, and then turned off this feature.

Since yours was only one window, I don't think it was because you did anything wrong with the key FOB, but possibly turning off this setting might help keep it from happening again in case that's where the bad software lies.

Sounds like you accidentally activated the initialization sequence when you checked to see if the windows were all up.. Just do this quick procedure to reset it.

The same exact thing happened to my driver side window a few weeks ago, not even 5000 miles on the car. Super frustrating.

My wife went to her car this morning and discovered my passenger window about 1/3 of the way down. It rained yesterday and I didn't open my windows or roof all day. I came home and locked the car as usual, hung my keys on a hook, nothing abnormal.

Has this issue been identified by Ford?
