I posted this in an old thread, but wasn't sure if people read it since it was pretty large, and the subject was about something else.

My question is, when you hit the remote start, do the doors lock if they are unlocked? Looking for people with keys and not push button if possible, since I don't know if they work the same way. I just installed the factory remote start and wondering if I have everything hooked up correctly. Right now, my doors DO NOT lock upon remote starting.

Thanks!

The PowerCode 1-way on my Escape did lock the doors before it started.

The 24-pin harness has two blue wires both for door lock outputs, they should be #2 and #24. Double check that you're using the right one. Pin #2 will only work if the alarm cartidge is installed, pin #24 is for the remote start cartidge.

just for everyones info, there is no factory installed remote start option for the focus...only a dealer installed option. The dealer unit and remotes DO have the ford logo and are MOSTLY plug and play.

to answer the original question, yes...if your doors are unlocked when you HOLD the remote start button the doors will lock, then the car will start. And when you hit the unlock button on your key to unlock the doors, the engine will shut off.

2014, built 7-10-2014. Funny thing is, it was not mentioned ANYWHERE, not on the window sticker, the dealer didnt mention it. I didnt even know I had it till I started wondering why my fob had that 2nd 2X symbol on it.

My key fob looks like this... http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Oem-For...s-Fob-Transmitter-Uncut-Blade-5-/310742298398

Hmm that is decent FOB for key + standard FOB + Remote start FOB all in one. May buy one for myself. Don't like having two different fobs.
BTW, I have a 2012 SEL. Installed bidirectional Ford remote start myself after buying it from partscheap.com, so I'm not sure if 2012 SELs had remote start option. Didn't see any with it listed for sale when I was searching back in 2011.Also, even if factory installed, you can reprogram the remote start to not shutoff the engine when you open the doors. This I know is applicable for non-push start cars with key starters. Not sure about Push-button start cars.

Mine does not shut off when I open the doors, I just get in hit the brake and hit the start button on the dash and I am ready to roll. :)

Just verified my 2012 SEL does lock the doors upon remote start. I have keys with seperate remote dongle. I ordered the car with remote start, though it appears the remote start was installed by the dealership. The antenna is mounted on the windsheild hear the mirror. This remote start has the furthest range of any one way remote start I've ever had.

can you send a link to getting to programming mode for the starter? I hate the auto shutoff when I unlock the door. And im pretty sure no 2012s had factory installed remote start...i could be wrong but im almost positive....

My 14 has the same fob as Beast posted. Factory installed I assumed. Actually I would've thought all of the push button Foci had this fob.

I'd hate to bring up an old thread. But I'm debating whether it's worth it to get the OEM Bidirectional remote start. Total I'll be looking at is about $460 installed. Don't really trust aftermarket systems. A couple coworkers have aftermarkets and they broke after a few months.

Help please?

Up to you really, its more of a convenience feature. It is nice to get into a warmed up or cooled car though. Will be nice to get it running when its covered in ice and snow too to get the ice loosened up without having to go outside. Wish the damn heated seats would warm up though. Not sure if the aftermarket config would not turn them on though. The factory version sure doesn't.

I bought my 13 used, it was a lease car that was actually owned by the dealer's mechanic. Anyway, it has the installed remote start and I really like it. That was one option that I really wanted on the car I got.

I did have an aftermarket one installed on a car that I owned back in the late 90's but I paid pretty much the price that you posted, but that included a full car alarm also.
