Rear door locking

Recommended Posts

Hey guys is there any way to keep the rear door from staying locked? Every time we get out we can open the sliding doors but have to always unlock the rear and digging for keys with stuff in your hands can be a pain. Thanks.

I am guessing you have the remote entry key fob/power locks. If you do, you can set it to one step unlocking as follows and is noted in the manual page 63.

Switching from two step to one step door unlocking

Your vehicle comes with two step unlocking enabled. With the vehicle

locked, unlocking can be switched between two step and one step door

unlocking by pressing and holding both the lock and unlock buttons

simultaneously on the remote entry transmitter for approximately four

seconds and release. The turn signal lamps will flash twice to indicate

that the vehicle has switched to one step unlocking. Repeat the

procedure to switch back to two-step unlocking.

Once this is done, it enables the cargo doors to unlock from the interior along with the front and sliding doors. Even though I haven't found it noted in the manual regarding this setting affecting unlocking from the interior, it has worked for me.

Give it a try...

Duh! Is that why Ford give you one. Also at time of delivery, the salesperson is supposed to go over a checklist and show you al of the intracacies of the vehicle.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I asked the Ford dealership this very thing and they said you can not change this. Maybe I should read the manual also. B)

Stepped Unlock Programming

With the ignition switch in the OFF position, press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter simultaneously for 4 seconds.

The turn signals flash twice to indicate the mode change.

Repeat Step 1 to enable/disable the stepped unlocking feature.

If one looks at the KEY FOB note the lock icon post-113-071286400 1283975527_thumb.jpg and the unlock icon post-113-071434800 1283975599_thumb.jpg.

Ignore the deck release icon... %^)

I do not have passenger door or rear door icons on my FOB.

Thanks for the directions, that was way too easy.

Thanks !!

Sad part is I read it in the manual and didn't think this was what they meant so I didn't try it.

Ok I got the doors to all unlock with ONE STEP from the inside,.... when I get OUT of the TC all the doors unlock...... however I can't get all the doors to unlock with ONE STEP using the remote from the outside, I have to push the cargo button first which opens the cargo door then I have to push the door unlock button which opens the rest of the doors, any ideas. ...... Is there a way to stop the horn from sounding when I lock the car?
