Remote Start and "Open Door Shut Off"

Hey everyone,

I placed an order for a 2012 Titanium with most options including Ford's remote start. After doing some searching, it turns out that new vehicles equipped with MyKey coupled with Ford's remote start has a "safety" feature which will turn off the engine when the door is opened after being started remotely.

What is everyones experience in disabling MyKey and programming the remote start to disable the open door shut off feature? I emailed my salesperson requesting him to find out more information and talk to the technicians but I haven't received a response yet.

I found out that some were successful in disabling this open door shut off feature in some 2011 Fusions and 2011 Edges and I'm hoping that it's the same for our 2012 Focuses.

Thanks all,
