I always use the handle and mine will honk if touched twice.

Sorry, I meant to say that I look at the mirror side marker lamps (they will flash when the car is locked).

Haha OK. I was thinking I was missing out on another feature that likely would have bugs like the rest of my car! haha

Looked in the manual and can find no reference to a setting that would change how and when it honks. On my last vehicle I could set it to honk on or off as I wanted.

I personally dislike this feature! The only time I find it useful is locating my car in a parking lot, so basically with the fob only.

Hey folks!

Those of you who are now missing the door handle honk/beep after pressing the black square twice, please reach out to me via PM with your VIN. I'm going to do some detective work with our engineering team and see if I can get some additional info/answers.

Thanks!
Crystal

It seems like Ford is intent on just changing things that there's no reason to change while leaving things alone that deserve a fix. It seems like they're changing things purely to change them, at this point.

^ Even so, they should allow us a menu to select such changes!
That would make it truely customizable
