I’m not sure if everyone is aware of this, but I was watching a YouTube video on Ford Tremors that “somehow” found its way into my recommended playlist. It’s a nice spot to hide your key fob in your truck if you’re going to do so.


 
What could go wrong?

I thought the same thing. Like what’s the purpose of that? Even if you use the door code and push to start bs… I don’t see any good reason for that
 
That spot is for MyKey programming. 😅
 
I do open water swimming sometimes. I put the key in an RFID bag, put it in that spot, (not the smaller spot). then lock the car. When I’m done, I can put in my door code and I’m good to go. One less thing to think about while I’m swimming
 
Where does one 'open water' swim in AZ? 😝

Shit, I just toss my key in the little storage tray on the side of the console down in the foot well .. usually with a few other friends keys as well. They would either carry them in their swim buoy or just leave them on their tires.
Now that I have the console vault I will put it in there if I’m in a sketchier area or one I’m not familiar with.

I do have a non-programmed key hidden outside the vehicle in case of a dead battery or other failure, so I can manually unlock the doors. And when camping, or traveling, I’ll have a fully functional spare set of keys in the console vault.
 
My key hasn't left that spot since the dealer showed it to me as the place for key programming..
X2 - all my ford vehicles. My wife does the same thing. Put it there only use the door code. Never think about the key. If I want to remote start I us my phone.
 
Doesn’t that mean anyone who gets in can drive away? Feel like I’ve read Ford trucks are very high on thieves lists as they are very easy to steal and this particular habit makes it easier.
If you lock with door code, you have to open with door code. Nothing works otherwise.

On the keypad, you can hit the two bottom buttons simultaneously and it will lock the truck without putting in the code.
 
Locking with the keypad disables any key that is in the vehicle until the code is entered and system is disarmed. If the anti theft is activated, it can only be disarmed by the door code or a key that was not in the vehicle when system was armed.

Good to know, I was hoping to hear that.

I wasn’t aware of this particular tidbit, but I love the code + key setup when I have someone shuttle my truck while fishing w/ drift boat.

I’ll have to pass this on the shuttle drivers next time.
