On my focus 1.8 mk 2 sport I have auto front windows. If I press the drivers Window and hOld it then let go it goes all the way down but does not come up all the way in the same fashion. Any way to do this my old mk1 had this feature where it came u and down auto cheers guys.

good question mines the same ide have thought it would be the other way round my old vw did it both ways
dezwez
i think thats the way they are

Unfortunately that is the way it is- one touch opening.

They did used to open both ways but they changed it after accidents involving children

H right so that's why the mk 1 Is like that

Being a Ghia,yours will have rear electrics window too. Ghias (and Titaniums) also have full closure windows, which can be closed with the key fob. Stands to reason that they also have one-touch closing windows while use mere mortals with Zetecs (no electric rears) only go down with the one-touch.

Fair enough! Still seems strange that they'd only put one touch on the way down though on the fronts on the Zetecs... so many little bits and pieces of these Foci that Ford could EASILY activate at no cost whatsoever, but don't. Boggles my mind.

The manual says to reset to disconnect the battery must be an easier way also only the drivers is auto my old mk 1 zetec had it ll round are we saying its a no cause of the trim level

Yep but if they didn't disable these features there would be no reason to stump up the cash for the higher spec models.

Some items on the more expensive versions are physical - motors for the rear windows, better seats, better stereo, cruise control etc - but some are just the activation of something in the software.
(I've heard that on some cars the difference between the base model and the more powerful model can be a simple setting on the ECU - the original 'new' Mini One and Cooper springs to mind)

In fact they often fit the same wiring loom and sensors etc to ALL cars because it simplifies production and actually makes it cheaper for Ford that way. Then you and I can just buy a part and plug it in (like the footwell lights, or front fogs)

I agree with darren OB79, because the children dont have the weight to kick in the "oh cack, somethings in the way" logic, the window just keeps opening. By default, I think they stopped allowing all cars to open and close in the same way, however the logic may still be on the ECU but disabled, but if its there, you should be able to wrangle it back into play!
