No door lock/unlock button - what's the deal?

Fri Jul 03, 2015 7:16 am

Feel like a real idiot here, but isn't everyone finding it strange there is no lock/unlock button available to the driver in our FFEs? I mean, if you're going to pick someone up how are you supposed to allow them in the car? Reach over and pull the handle or use the keyfob? What am I missing here? I expect the answer to be so embarrassing I might have to delete this post. :oops:

Thanks. For whatever reason thought that had to do with the passenger airbag and have always ignored it.

My salesman had to show me that, saying that nobody expects it to be there.

I think that all Titanium-trim (and therefore also Electric) Focus models have the unlock button there. I'll have to peek inside an SE Hatch to compare.

I kinda like it in the middle. Can't accidentally hit it when going for the power windows.

i like it in the middle too! My parents' C-Max Energi has a very similar unlock/lock button on the center console but in the C-Max it doesn't actually function, it just has a light to show if the doors are locked or not, the unlock/lock button is on the doors.

Do you still have the light on the center console to show if the doors are locked or not?

Nope. But, the light in the switch on the door illuminates when it is locked.

Do you have a pic? Is there a pic in the 2015 differences thread?
Edit: I went back & reviewed the 2015 differences thread. There is a pic showing the new placement of the door lock switch, but nothing that shows the light to indicate when the doors are locked or unlocked.
