that makes lots of sense right there but it does defeate the purpose of keyless start
I get what you all are saying. Just figured if it annoyed you enough it would be a simple workaround
I also own an s2000, talk about pointless keyless start. (turn key, press start)
Haha, just like every other car prior to keyless ignition. Chuck it in the cupholders.
oh my that is dumber than my 2011 Mustang GT where you turn the key and it turns the engine over till it starts... regardless if it starts or not let go of key and engine keeps cranking till it fires... never had a issue but I could see this killing the battery or overheating the starter motor.. I just leave my FOB in the lunch pail I take to work so I never noticed the beep beep
A lot of new cars are like that. The timeout should be set that it isn't so long that it'd hurt anything if it won't start. I've seen them get screwed up before and continue to attempt to crank after the engine is already running all the way up until timeout. What an awesome 'feature'.
Ya that was always my fear hearing the starter gear eating the flywheel teeth .... lol
Euro spec ftw!

Mine doesn't honk when I get out/leave the car and leave it running.
Mine doesn't either. I have the Nav system, does it have something to do with that?
Back to the topic: There's really nothing that I miss. I thought I would miss Applink, but the way MFT handles resume via Bluetooth and the ability to have both my phones connected at the same time is actually better. I love this car!
I never had an older Fiesta, but the rear camera would have been nice to have.
I don't have the Nav system n mine.
While the keyfob is on your person? Or do you leave that in the vehicle?
Always in my pocket
Maybe I'm not walkin far enough away? I'll give it a try today.
No, mine goes off as soon as I exit the vehicle and close the door. When I'm brushing snow off of my windows. It's very close proximity to the vehicle. Odd that some do it and some don't. I'd like to turn it off if I can.
Ah yeah, mines not doin that at all.. I checked it out again, walked out front started up the car and walked out the other end of the house to the back yard... no honk
Mine doesn't do that either. I can get out and the only thing I hear is either the door open warning or the seatbelt warning.
Mine doesn't do it either. I start the car every morn to get it out of the garage then get out to close the garage door...
And on topic I didn't have a fiesta before this but the only thing I sort if miss from my last car is the reverse camera. Not that I really need it, it was just fun being able to look and see where my bumper actually was
No honk here.
Focus ST guys are having the same issue. Some honk and some don't. No real way to turn it off has been found short of disabling the horn (which I still wouldn't recommend myself). http://www.focusst.org/forum/focus-...-know-how-stop-honking-when-you-take-key.html
