owner walks up with key -> doors unlock, car stays on
owner puts car into drive -> since key is there, car stays on and just starts to drive.

Now that you understand the most logical way it should work, you can understand why a person would be frustrated when it doesn't work that way.
Pickup my Focus Ti last night only had a few hours to play with it.
but mine works just like you say above, BUT.............. dealer has a module on order to fix it cause that is not the way its supposed to work..

I will play tonight and check out all combinations..
