2009 Ford Flex: The Forgotten Keypad

June 04, 2010

I had forgotten that our Flex has Ford's distinctive keypad feature for locking and unlocking the doors without a key. Unless the pad is illuminated it's hard to spot since it's a black, flat touchpad. (Incidentally, it's also frustratingly difficult to take a picture of without getting an annoying reflection of the background.)

But the touchpad is great for times when you don't want to carry around the key or any personal belongings (i.e., the beach, hiking, the gym). Just press the 7-8 and 9-0 buttons together to lock and then a specific five-digit code to unlock. You can also program in custom unlocking codes.
