The glovebox is easy to remove;

1. Remove the right hand instrument panel side trim panel
2. Remove the right hand lower instrument panel insulator.
- Remove the 2 retainers.
3. Remove the glove compartment.
- Remove the 5 torx t25 screws. (1-side, 2-top, 2-bottom {way at the back})

It takes me about 5 minutes now, but on the first attempt to remove the glove box it took me about 30 minutes to find the 2 bottom torx t25 screws.
Yeah, I was hoping to avoid it... but that actually doesn't sound too bad. Thanks for the instructions!

I had been wanting to disable the shutdown on door open feature forever and finally found the programming button under the glove compartment, behind the tear away fabric that lines the passenger foot well. However, as I followed the instructions on the PDF I found online, it turned out that I only had 6 options in my available options bank no matter if I had a MyKey programmed to the car or not (which I thought was the deciding factor since the PDF says "NON MY-KEY OPTIONS" and "MY-KEY OPTIONS"). While I did change my remote start time to 15 minutes from 10, disabled the horn honk on remote start and I changed the input from "push and hold" to "push twice," I was dismayed that I couldn't access the MY-KEY OPTIONS so I could scroll to option 7 and disable the one thing I started doing all of this for in the first place! Has anyone had any success in this and, if so, how the hell did you do it? Thanks forum!

Bumping an old thread, but have some questions. I just put in the Ford bidirectional remote start today and want to make sure I got everything hooked up correctly.

First question, when you remote start the car does the car lock itself before it starts, if the doors are unlocked?

Second question.... I have the same problem as others with a newer system, I don't have a 7th bank to disable the car shutting off after opening a door. Has anyone with this problem tried using Focccus to disable the MYKEY? According to the manual, if you don't have MYKEY then the door opening should not shut off the car.

Thanks!

Ok, I got everything working correctly now. Just wanted to add, my remote start DOES have the 7th option in the second bank to keep the car running after opening the door. It's not documented anywhere in the manual that came with it though. It shows that bank 7 is "unused". I'm not sure when they decided to program this back into it, but it works. The sticker on the brain module had a date of 2013 if that makes any difference. Just an FYI for anyone thinking about purchasing one.
