So, I took my Flex to the dealer today to get the auto start reprogramed so that it doesn't turn off when the doors open. I waited for 2 hours to have them tell me that they don't know how to reprogram the auto start. They said all they can do is to change it to factory default which it is on now. They don't know how to change it b/c my Flex is the first car with factory auto start installed on it.

So I have to tell them how to do their job now. Does anyone know what to do or what I need to tell the dealer/service dept on how to fix this issue? Any help would be very appreciated........

Ford will not let the Dealers turn off the (open door shut down feature) because it will allow the MyKey to be defeated.

You can reprogram the remote start yourself. The procedure is on page two of this thread.
