Just picked up my new LWB Transit Connect Wagon.
It has the anti theft alarm with interior motion sensors.
The owners manual gives some advice on deactivating the motion sensors. They can be on, off or set to ask each time whether I want them on or off.
Apparently that's how it works on other Ford models, possibly on earlier TCs, but there are no controls to do that either on the sync screen settings or the dashboard settings.
Service department says there's no way to deactivate the motion sensors and they could possibly crawl in there and disconnect them if I want.
Well, I don't want them disconnected, I want to be able to use them if I lock the vehicle empty or deactivate them when I have the canine co-pilot along.
Apparently there's no way to lock the vehicle without activating the alarm either.
Thinking of trying black tape over the sensors but there should be some intelligent way of disabling the sensors in the TC if it can be done on other models.
Anyone from Ford monitoring this forum? Could this possibly get fixed with a software update?
