I have driven my Kuga for a day now and really like it, ticks all my boxes. However..... keyless system? Why spend all that time on the new fobs etc and then.... have a key to open the bonnet? Soooooo bizarre
. for years we had a lever to pull the bonnet and then we go keyless apart from the bonnet. somehow that one passed by the boffins at Ford. Must have been the coffee break when that came up in the meeting.

must be a Ford thing. I've been used to vw's and merc's. My last ford was an escort saloon 10 years ago.

Hi pilotlight

At the risk of once again stating the obvious, your three button keyless pad(s) each have a key inside, which of course opens the drivers door and the bonnet. When the batteries in the keyless pad are pretty well shot and won't open the doors, you can remove the key and manually unlock the drivers door. The alarm will quietly start to beep, holdthe keynext to the "steering lock pad" or even remove the pad to hold the key even closer. The engine will start on the power button as normal.
These things I had to find out for myself, your dealer may have shown you all this, and its all in the book.

the dealer showed all about the keys, which are a backup really, but I found it strange that they bleet on about being clue...keyless and yet you need a normal key for the bonnet. just strange.

Its what they call a security feature. When I got my mondeo with it I asked why Ford decided to have the bonnet unlocking with a key from the outside. This is so that when and if someone breaks into your car the first thing thats going to happen is the alarm is going to go off, they open the bonnet from the inside and there you go alarm cable cut!! But if you cant open the bonnet from inside the alarm keeps going off because they dont have the key to open the bonnet!! unless they broke into your house and got the keys first!!

I suppose it makes sense for security reasons.

Humouris the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provokelaughter and provideamusement Many theories exist about what humour is and what social function it serves. People of all ages and cultures respond to humour. The majority of people are able to be amused, to laugh or smile at something funny, and thus they are considered to have a "sense of humour."for you bear regards proac.
