Michaelc1220 Correct, so I guess the key I had been using was linked to the mykey feature. Im just using the other key now and it allows me to access all of the other features.

You mean it was linked to the mykey feature? As a MyKey can be programmed to not have access to the driver assist settings. The Master key or admin key in ford speak has full rights to the car once its started and running.

Michaelc1220 I just went out and tried again and this is what happens..
starting in trip one..
I hit left
down 3 times to "settings"
my options after clicking "settings" are "lighting" "display" and "convenience"
I just called my dealer and the service guy told me he would have to look at it, so im taking it in to them in about a half hour

Rememo Make sure you're using the correct key, assuming the driver "lockout" features are the same on the SE as the SEL.

If you're using the key that was programmed as the main key, you have full control of the car. The second key usually has limited access, since it's meant to be given to valets, or yours kids. For instance I can set that key to a maximum allowed speed, maximum allowed radio volume (I think), and when I use that key I cannot access the driver assist features.

gkirk If it is in trip 1. Hit left once, down 3 times right 3 times. done.

If you don't have that option then you have something seriously different about your SE.

Hodge Podge Strange indeed.

It was my understanding that only the "S" models were unable to turn off traction control basically due to the absence of steering wheel controls allowing them to control the menu.

I'd ask the dealer at the next visit.

Perhaps it's a software issue?

MC1992 How strange, mine has it.

Michaelc1220 thats similar to what I saw on the other thread about it, but when I click "settings" on mine, I dont have the "drivers assist" option
