Ford Escape: Remote entry system
The Integrated Keyhead Transmitter (IKT) complies with part 15 of the FCC rules and with RSS-210 of Industry Canada. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the userвЂ™s authority to operate the equipment.
The typical operating range for your IKT is approximately 33 feet (10 meters). A decrease in operating range could be caused by:
вЂў weather conditions,
вЂў nearby radio towers,
вЂў structures around the vehicle, or
вЂў other vehicles parked next to your vehicle.
The IKT allows you to:
вЂў remotely unlock the vehicle
вЂў remotely lock all the vehicle doors.
вЂў remotely open the power liftgate glass.
вЂў activate the personal alarm.
вЂў operate the illuminated entry feature.
The remote entry lock/unlock feature operates in any ignition position except while the key is held in the start position. The panic feature operates with the key in the off position.
If there are problems with the remote entry system, make sure to take ALL Integrated Keyhead Transmitters with you to the authorized dealer in order to aid in troubleshooting the problem.
1. Press and release to unlock the driverвЂ™s door. Note: The interior lamps will illuminate if the control on the overhead lamp is in the DOOR position.
2. Press and release again within three seconds to unlock the passenger doors, the liftgate and liftgate glass.
One step door unlocking
If the one step door unlocking feature is activated, press and release once to unlock all of the doors, the liftgate and liftgate glass. Note: The interior lamps will illuminate (refer to the Illuminated entry feature later in this section), if the control on the overhead lamp is in the DOOR position.
Switching from two step to one step door unlocking
Unlocking can be switched between two step and one step door unlocking by pressing and holding both and buttons simultaneously on the remote entry transmitter for approximately four seconds. The turn signal will flash twice to indicate that the vehicle has switched to one step unlocking. Repeat the procedure to switch back to two step unlocking.
Locking the doors
1. Press and release to lock all the doors. Assuming all vehicle doors and the liftgate are properly closed, the parking lamps will illuminate.
2. Press and release again within three seconds to confirm that all the doors and liftgate are closed and locked. Note: The doors will lock again and the horn will chirp once.
If any of the doors or the liftgate are not properly closed, the horn will chirp twice and turn lamps will not illuminate when the control is pressed.
Opening the liftgate glass (if equipped)
Press twice within three seconds to open the liftgate glass.
Press twice within three seconds. The horn will chirp and the turn lamps will flash. It is recommended that this method be used to locate your vehicle, rather than using the panic alarm.
Sounding a panic alarm
Press to activate the alarm. To deactivate the feature, press the control again, turn the ignition to the on or start position, or wait for the alarm to time out in approximately three minutes.
Note: The panic alarm will only operate when the ignition is in the off position.
Replacing the battery
The integrated keyhead transmitter uses one coin type three-volt lithium battery CR2032 or equivalent.
To replace the battery:
1. Twist a thin coin in the slot of the IKT near the key ring in order to remove the battery cover.
Note: Do not wipe off any grease on the battery terminals on the back surface of the circuit board.
2. Remove the old battery.
Note: Please refer to local regulations when disposing of transmitter batteries.
3. Insert the new battery. Refer to the instructions inside the IKT for the correct orientation of the battery. Press the battery down to ensure that the battery is fully seated in the battery housing cavity.
4. Snap the battery cover back onto the key.
Note: Replacement of the battery will not cause the IKT to become deprogrammed from your vehicle. The IKT should operate normally after battery replacement.
Replacing lost Integrated Keyhead Transmitters (IKTs)
If you would like to have your Integrated Keyhead Transmitters reprogrammed because you lost one, or would like to buy additional IKTs, you can either reprogram them yourself, or take all IKTs to your authorized dealer for reprogramming.
How to reprogram your Integrated Keyhead Transmitters (IKTs)
To program a new Integrated Keyhead Transmitter yourself, refer to Programming spare keys in the SecuriLock passive anti-theft section of this chapter. Note: At least two IKTs are required to perform this procedure yourself.
The interior lamps, parking lamps and puddle lamps (if equipped) illuminate when the Integrated Keyhead Transmitter or the keyless entry system keypad is used to unlock the door(s).
The illuminated entry system will turn off the lights if:
вЂў the ignition is turned to the on position, or
вЂў the integrated keyhead transmitter lock control is pressed, or
вЂў the vehicle is locked using the keyless entry keypad (if equipped), or
вЂў after 25 seconds of illumination.
The lights will not turn off if:
вЂў they have been turned on with the dimmer control, or
вЂў any door is open.
вЂў The lamps will illuminate when the key is removed from the ignition.
The lamps automatically turn off after 25 seconds. The dome and cargo lamp controls must not be set to the off position for the illuminated exit system to operate.
