Default Ford installed remote start system

Just had the Ford factory remote start installed on my 2010 F-150. After seeing it work on a friends 2010 Sport Trac I had to get it. He is able to use the remote start then enter the vehicle without it cutting off. When I attempt to get into my F-150 is shuts off. I called Ford and was told that is the correct way for it to function and it should shut off. Anyone with similar issues?

Needs the programming changed.
Your stealer means "That's the way they work when we install them", cuz they might have to read the instructions otherwise. Then they might learn something new.

The instructions on how to change the programming has been posted before, but I didn't save it. I printed a copy out and took it to my stealer after getting the same answer as you.

Default Dealer installed it wrong

I have 2010 F150 and my dealer installed mine so it would turn off when I inserted my key. They also only gave me one remote.
They fixed both issues without barely a complaint. I climb in my truck and can do anything I want except hit the brake pedal without the truck turning off. The remote starter will lock the doors automatically when you start it.

Thanks to all. I will find the instructions. I asked the dealer and they told me they were told by Ford they could not make the change "for safety reasons"

That's just Dealer BS, had the factory unit install when I purchase my 2010 Platinum. Only way it will shutoff is if you put you're foot on the brake pedal before you put the key in the ignition and turn it to the run position.

i hate to sound stupid, but is this expensive to add to the truck from the dealer? i was wanting to get one for my truck, seeing how it won't fit in the garage, but i didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for it.

I think my stealer charged me $150 for the single button remote. I got two fobs with the deal.

Default Pricey

I contacted my STEALER for a price last week.....$$$900.00 Installed

I was shocked-----but to clear it up, i'm in Canada, But come on what a rip off.

Also i asked if i'd have to carry an additional fob....they said no as the suple a new key with everything built into it.....Is this true???

Anyways let me know what you guys have paid and also the fob/key combinations.

BTW---my truck is a 2009 Screw XLT

THANKS
