    Did you know your Fiesta ST could.....("secret" features thread)

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey I was reading another thread about the car talking and I started remembering all sorts of neat features I've accidentally discovered about my car so I thought I'd make a thread to share them and hear stuff that others know about....if you have a Lexus none of this stuff is a big deal but if your last car was a 1995 like me then maybe you'd be impressed that your Fiesta could...

    *****
    THE REAR HATCH WILL OPEN EVEN WHEN THE CAR IS LOCKED
    If you have the key fob on you, you can open the back without unlocking the car. It'll stay locked when you close it.

    THE HEADLIGHTS RE-INSTALL VERY EASILY EVERY TIME
    Thanks to a rotating and sliding clip, they go in quite easily. I've taken them out so many times that it took me awhile to realize this, but once I did it makes the job cake. Just rotate it in the right way, push the headlight down into the clip, then slide it into place, super easy, no cussing.

    WHEN THE CAR IS OFF, IF YOU PULL THE HIGH BEAM STALK TOWARD YOU THE LIGHTS WILL FLASH ON AND THEN DING AND THEN STAY ON
    Other cars flash it on and off, but not the Fiesta. The "ding" is to remind you to pull the stalk again to turn them off. Very intuitive.

    THE WIPER SWEEPS ONE EXTRA TIME, A FEW SECONDS LATER, AFTER BEING TURNED OFF
    I've always wanted a car that would do this by itself.

    THE GLOVE BOX HAS A STRAP AT THE TOP
    That's where you can secure your owner's manual so it's not in the way every time you have to reach for your gum or lightsaber.

    THE CAR HAS A WEATHER MAP
    Just push the prompt on the steering wheel, say "weather map", and there you have it. Zoom in, zoom out. It also tells you movie times and a few other neat things. I use the weather feature almost daily. Has current and 5-day too.

    THE CAR WILL VERBALLY TELL YOU IF TIRE PRESSURE IS LOW
    I've not experienced this but I read about it in another thread.

    YOUR REAR CARGO AREA HAS TWO HEIGHT SETTINGS
    Check the manual, you can raise it in order to hide stuff under it!

    THE CAR HAS A HILL HOLDER CLUTCH!
    Most of us knew this, but I remember when I accidentally discovered it in the beginning, I was pleasantly surprised.

    That's it for me! Anything else that's "secret"?

    I'm guessing the weather map is ONLY for those who opted for Nav, correct?

    There is a hook on each side of the hatch area that you can loop the straps of a plastic grocery bag over. It's at a good height to hold them tightly and prevent them from sliding around as you whip your agile car around turns.

    The front DC jack shuts off immediately when the car is powered down. However, the rear DC jack is on a timer and remains on even while the car is locked for 10 minute. Very useful for dashcam users that don't want to hardwire.

    Isn't that only if you subscribe to the Ford service?

    Apparently mine didn't come with the "no cussing" option. I end up cussing every time. I'll have to try to figure this out since I'm sure I've not taken them out for the last time yet...

    Not mine, it stays on FOREVER (2016 model). I leave my dashcam plugged in to it to record while I'm away.

    Is this true? That would suck if I get a new set of wheels and tires for the track -- I have never had TPMS before and don't want or need it now. I can deal with the idiot light, but any bells, whistles, or verbal warnings would drive me freaking nuts
