I want to make sure that I don't accidentally leave the car unlocked!
Push it twice

I figured it out by mistake one day lol it's just like pushing the button on your key fob a second time double check with yours as it is a '13 and mine is a '12, but I don't see why it wouldn't be the same.

hmmm... it didn't work I tried pressing it twice close together and far apart but no luck. I didn't drive it any where or anything, I just unlocked it and then tried locking it again.

Any thoughts? Maybe there is something that I have to do to enable it?

Any Ford vehicle I've ever driven has the lock confirmation on the second keypress. My old '99 GT even had it. Just double tap the lock button, it'll lock the first time, then blip the horn the second.

Have you tried your spare key? That would rule out something wrong with key itself at least.

(Also is your horn working....? hey ya never know.....)

I agree, it seems strange to me as well.

So I tried the second key and driving it up and down the driveway but nada. I also checked and the horn works and if I double press the key fob it locks and then beeps. When I double press the door handle it locks and then makes a sound like it is trying to lock a second time. I can continue to press it and it will continue to make that sound but no beep.

So I tried using the passenger side this morning but that didn't work either. I also tried pressing and holding the button to see if it would change a setting or something but nothing happened. Does anyone have another idea? If someone has a '13 and could test it on theirs and see if it works for them that would be helpful, that way I'd either know I'm not alone or that something needs to get changed with my car. Thanks This is the one thing that annoys me about my FF, everything else is great!

So I was looking through the owners manual and on page 71 it says that if you press the button twice within 3 seconds it will beep! So I guess it is my car that is the problem. I'll probably have to hassle the dealer about it and see if they can work out what the problem is. If you guys have any ideas on how to fix it let me know

Mine also does not beep on second press. Never heard any audible indication of locking or unlocking and tried everything.
