Question BA: Pushing lock on keypad when already locked

Just wondering what is supposed to happen when the lock button on a BA keypad is pressed when already locked. Similarly, what occurs when unlock is pressed when already unlocked? Does it confuse/damage the computer/components if either is done?

Also just commenting on the distance the keypad works away from the car - im very impressed :-) Obviously ford would have engineered the kaypad to withstand drops and knocks to hold its signal quality??? The AU keypad lost its signal strength abilities, probably due to the occasional accidental drop :-(

Re: BA: Pushing lock on keypad when already locked

When locked and depressing locked button - The lights will flash again and horn beep shortly.

When unlocked and depressing unlock button - The central locking will push up again and the lights will flash.

No damage occurs to anything.

Re: BA: Pushing lock on keypad when already locked

You can program the keypad so when locked the first press unlocks the drivers door only, the second press opens all doors.
Handy if you are worried about somebody getting in another door when you are getting in.

Re: BA: Pushing lock on keypad when already locked

When the car is locked and you press the lock button again, the lights will flash as normal when locking. IF you have pressed the lock button quite quickly after the initial press, the horn will sound. However, if you have taken more than around 5 seconds, the horn doesn't sound.... much better than the AUs when it would always sound the horn if you tried locking a 2nd time.

The only 'damage' you'll do with multiple lock/unlock is use the battery!

A previous post said you can program the unlocking to be 2 stage (driver door first press, other doors on 2nd press OR a long 1st press).. There are other things you can program that aren't in the manual... such as turning off the seat belt warning chimes permanently if you don't want them.

Re: BA: Pushing lock on keypad when already locked

To permanently disable the Seat Belt Reminder:

1. Drivers seatbelt ON
2. Hold Hazard Lights button for 30sec
3. Turn Ignition on
4. Unplug and replug seatbelt
5. Should see light flash on dash

.... thereafter, the seatbelt warning light will light for a few seconds when you first turn the car on and then go out.. no chimes... i.e. it'll start acting like the seatbelt warning in other cars!

Wrenfrew,

I have a 2006 F-250 6.0 PSD. I have followed your instructions and it did work, I drove the truck down the road and no annoying ding or light, however when I shut off the engine, remove key, open door, close door, restart engine I'm back to where I started. The vehicle goes back to the original factory settings.

One question, in step 2 above do you release the hazard light button after 30 secs has elapsed or do you continue to hold down until the light flash in step 5?

Thanks in advance for your help.
