Vehicles with Keyless Vehicle System

The keyless vehicle system allows the vehicle to be operated without conventional keys or without active actuation of the radio remote control. With this system, the user only needs to carry a valid radio remote control (a passive key).

The vehicle is supplied with a double latching function.

The system includes the following components:

  • Keyless Vehicle Module
  • Passive key (radio remote control with integrated emergency key)
  • RF remote receiver
  • Additional latching and release buttons
  • Electric door locks with fast-reaction motors
  • Exterior antennas in both front doors and in the rear bumper
  • Four interior antennas
  • Electronic steering lock unit (replaces the mechanical steering lock)
  • Start/stop button for starting/switching off the engine; the conventional ignition lock is dispensed with.

Unlocking the vehicle

In order to gain access to the vehicle, there must be a passive vehicle key in the vicinity of the vehicle. A passive vehicle key is identified by the exterior antennas.

Exterior antennas: approximate range (in mm)

Unlocking the vehicle

If a valid vehicle key is identified then the vehicle can be unlocked directly by operating a handle on one of the doors or by pressing the unlocking button on the liftgate. If the global unlocking function is activated then all of the doors are unlocked.

The anti-theft alarm system is switched off when the vehicle is unlocked.

Refer to: Anti-Theft - Active (419-01 Anti-Theft - Active, Description and Operation)

/ Anti-Theft - Active (419-01 Anti-Theft - Active, Description and Operation)

/ Anti-Theft - Active (419-01 Anti-Theft - Active, Description and Operation).

Locking the vehicle

There are two ways of centrally locking the vehicle:

  • actuating the door latch button once,
  • actuating the relevant button on the radio remote control of the passive key once.

When the central locking system has been activated, the vehicle remains locked for 3 seconds.

During this time, the vehicle cannot be unlocked with the passive key or with the remote control.

This allows the driver to check whether the vehicle is locked. This delay time van be changed or switched off via IDS (Integrated Diagnostic System).

The global locking function can only be activated via the drivers door. To this end, the exterior door lock button on the driver's door must be pressed for at least 2 seconds.

Provided the ignition is switched off, the anti-theft alarm system is switched on when the vehicle is locked.

Refer to: Anti-Theft - Active (419-01 Anti-Theft - Active, Description and Operation)

/ Anti-Theft - Active (419-01 Anti-Theft - Active, Description and Operation)

/ Anti-Theft - Active (419-01 Anti-Theft - Active, Description and Operation).

Emergency unlocking/locking

If the keyless vehicle module does not detect the passive key, then the vehicle can be unlocked and locked as described in Vehicles with keyless vehicle module.

Liftgate and folding rear window

The liftgate and the folding rear window can be released in the way described in Vehicles with keyless vehicle module.

engine compartment lid

The hood is released by unlocking it at the lock behind the Ford badge on the radiator grille.

Starting/switching off the engine

The routine for starting and switching off the engine is the same as for the keyless start system.

Service Instructions

It is not possible to replace the lock cylinder in the driver's door or on the hood or reorder a key/emergency key without the key number. It is not possible to read off the code from the key itself in service.

If a new passive key (radio remote control with integrated emergency key) is to be added, it just needs to be reprogrammed with the IDS.

If a passive key (radio remote control with integrated emergency key) is to be erased, all keys first have to be erased. The remaining keys must then be reprogrammed. Up to 8 keys can be programmed.

Between the emergency key holder and the passive anti-theft system transceiver there is a copper ring which ensures the resonant frequency of the transceiver. This copper ring must be in position to ensure the function of the emergency key.

After replacement of the new keyless vehicle module, all the available passive vehicle keys as well as the emergency keys must be reprogrammed using "the IDS. The new keyless vehicle module must also be initialized with the following modules using IDS:

  • PCM (powertrain control module)
  • Steering Column Lock Control Unit
