    You would think that car wouldn't go into gear and keep running without the key being in the car. I thought there was a fail safe for that.

    Default What have you learned about your NGT today??

    I can unlock, lock and start my F-150 with my smartphone using Ford Pass. Doesnít the new GT have the same features? At Rowanís delivery they were setting up his GT with Ford Pass.

    It does and I don’t want my GT to be set up on Ford Pass. No reason for me to start the GT from outside the car under any condition! This can be a problem delivery specialists need to discuss with new owners. Just discussed this with Bernardo and he’s going to look into what happened. This car never honked the horn, blinked the headlights or made any audible noise for me to hear as I walked out of my building, got into the GT, released it from park, put in into gear (in normal mode) and drove off my property! Absolutely no indication that I did not have the keys with me in the car whatsoever. I just want others to know what happened and can happen to them.... Very Easily! I’m just hoping all others see and read this post! PS- I’m not an alarmist just a realist.

    I would try to do exactly what I did. Start your GT in your garage or driveway, get out of the car closing the door and take the keys and put them in your garage or house then without the keys get into the GT and try to drive around the block and see what happens! Don’t turn the GT off or you’ll be walking home! ha see for yourself!

    I can start my NFGT, let it run and walk at least 60 feet to my mailbox with my key in my pocket and it keeps running nicely. Never tried walking away any further or driving to Houston :)
    On my other Fords (F-150/ Edge ) as long as I do not fully close / latch the door , I can walk away and it keeps running...no beep
    If I close AND latch the door , the horn beeps when I get 2-feet away from the vehicle.

    The Ford pass is nice to have cuz it'll let you know if the car is locked or not and if the alarm goes off and you're not close enough to hear it. Also let you know if your hatches are open as well.

    Don’t worry Tomy, there was enough dumb-ass for everyone at that show: I kept trying to put the wing up, Tomy tried, his buddy tried, but no success. Turns out the steering wheel was 180 degrees turned and we were all pressing the cruise control button instead of the OK button!
