and let's be honest, the Focus manual is actually pretty big (mostly MFT stuff) and even when you do find what you're looking for it's not always written the most understandable way. For example, the steps for programming the Homelink button to open the garage door had a hole or two in it. Read it 5 or 6 times and followed it step-by-step. Still wouldn't work, but then ran across a thread out here where others were discussing and someone shared what they did and viola....it worked! Not much more than a shared experience and it helped more than just a few.

Also....there are some out here who LOVE sharing information, so it benefits both the one asking and the one replying.

I hate it when all the doors lock (I know how to lock them my self)

My SAAB locks could be programmed either way, how abot the FORD ?
My only question Adam is "why do you want to program it out"? It works really well and doesn't impede getting in or out, so why not take advantage of it? (are you afraid of getting locked in?) ;-)

Because HE DOESN'T WANT THE DOORS LOCKED! Why do you think he asked the question? And what do you mean it doesn't impede getting in? THE DOOR IS LOCKED!

Not all of us are scared to death all the time and feel better when the doors are locked. I fall into that category.

Most of the people here simply try to be helpful.

It would be easy to conclude that not wanting the doors to lock automatically is based on a misunderstanding about the operation of the car, such as the need to unlock the door when exiting the car.

I think it's possble (But can't be done with bare hands).

Focus MK3 sold in my country comes without "Auto" door locking
due to vehicle regulations reason.

But i know if i have the software and hardware to
tweak with BCM(Or GEM? I'm not sure) It is possble to bring "Auto" door locking back.
(Actually, i knew someone is providing this service in my country, dealership can't do this for me(Possible,but can't do) because it will violate vehicle regulations)

So... I think it's possible to disable the "Auto" door locking.

Maybe you should ask someone who have the software and hardware and willing to tweak BCM(Or GEM? I'm not sure) for you
or just ask dealership to do it for you (They have the software and hardware required, and i believe it will not violate vehicle regulations in US, small payment may required).

About the software and hardware, I think it should be IDS and VCM
(Infact, there are lots of hidden options which can be enable or disable,Some of them requires additional hardware installed eg:Windshield Wiper System Washer Fluid Level Sensor which is required to enable washer fluild level low warning)

When I am in North America, this auto locking thing bugs the heck out me and my family. Whenever we stop at a store, etc, and passenger is going to get out of the car, the passenger gets frustrated when pulling the door handle to get out only to find it is locked all the freaking time, beacuse the dumb driver always forgets that he/she has to hit the power unlock button to exit the vehicle.

I find this feature a real pain in the a**.

With my Focus S, I followed the instructions to the letter and it did not work. The dealer was able to do it for me at no charge.

Well on the focus, the 2 front doors anyway (not sure about the rear doors), a single pull of the handle simultaneously unlocks and opens the door.
