Have any of you ever had the remote key fob open the hatch unintentionally? Or find all the windows down when you return to the car?
I am going to try and keep this short but the money I save in fuel is costing me in garage door repairs and probably body work too.
Today, its a really nice day in North Carolina. I decided to do a little fishing in the pond behind the house.
The cars are in the garage, I close the garage as I leave with my two rods etc.
When I return, I stoop down to lay the rods down and I proceed to open the garage door with the remote door keypad. It only goes up about a foot and stops. I enter the code to the door so it would go back down, which it does and I enter the house from the front door to get access to the garage from the house.
Sure enough, when I stooped down outside before opening the garage door, I squeezed the remote hatch button and it was open and stopped against the garage door.
when I had opened the garage from the outside I of course couldnt see what was going to happen inside the garage. As the rising garage door snagged the darn open hatch which then twisted up the flimsy garage door and hardware. It also bent a section of the C MAX hatch edge and fractured the paint in that area.
I have come back out in the past to have all the windows wide open and another time, around xmas, the hatch was up too. A couple days ago I was working in the attic and all of a sudden the car alarm goes off as I am climbing a ladder. Each time one of these disasters occur, its because something in my pocket presses the buttons just right as I am in some sort of motion/position that presses the buttons just right or should I say presses the buttons WRONG..
Am I the only one stuff like this happens to?
More important question.... CAN I deactivate the remote hatch and windows opening using the Ford software via the obdII connector?
Thanks for sharing the info. I regret not taking pics of the mess it caused.
