That - inability to auto-up windows with a remote - is likely a safety feature, the "bounce-back" safeguard notwithstanding.

Doubt it.  It's a feature on other Ford models.  Just not implemented on ours for some stupid reason.

The real mystery is the backdoor lift sensor....  half the time it works perfectly, the other half I'm just looking stupid waving my foot underneath the car while nothing happens.

I think I'm deciding that on mine the issue is the time for the car to detect the key.  So if I just walk up to the car, it usually doesn't work for a few tries(the length of time before the car realizes the key is there so it's OK to open the hatch). 

Now, if I walk up to the back of the car and just wait maybe 5 seconds or so then it seems much more likely to just work on the first try.  Similarly it's much more likely to just work to close it since I've been at the back of the car and kept the key there where it can "see" it.

 

I wonder if the age/strength of the battery in the key has much impact...  Though my fob still seems to work well if I press the button from inside the house some distance from the garage...
