I edited my last post to say "SOLID" and not "sold", I would be surprised if FORD stopped allowing new owners to register it.

On six occasions I have been locked out , I had both my fob and phone, I finely went around to passenger side and was able to open door. The next few times I was putting things in trunk and went driver side and it wouldn't open, I had both fob and phone. After a few minutes I was able to get in. The last time a was locked out I had to use to door code to get in. Has anyone had his problem?
I have this issue also. It works on all my doors and back lift gate except for the drivers door. It was working fine for 1 week then the drivers door stopped unlocking when I walk up and push the button. Only way to unlock it is the door code, key fob button, button on Fordpass, or push the door button on a different door then all doors unlock and I can open the drivers door. It's very annoying, trying to get a service appointment scheduled tomorrow or early next week to figure out what's going on. Seems like something is wrong with a sensor in the drivers door that recognizes the key proximity.

I don't think that's it. I just tested mine and it's doing the same thing, again. I even deactivated PAAK thinking that might have been messing it up, but that's not it. When the car is locked, and I open then close the liftgate, it won't then unlock the doors unless you leave the fob proximity range and re-enter it (about 10'). Or do something like press a fob button to force a new signal.

some sort of timeout for the other doors maybe. not sure why that would be needed

That's my issue, not sure what yours is. Nothing fixes my issues.

After going back to dealer with my being lock out problems, they called Ford and they sent a technician. I met with him and he said I would have to leave my MME with him and he would down load a number of fixes. They called me the next day and said it was ready. We reprogramed the phone and some codes and now everything is working perfectly. I can now enter the MME with the fob or phone, or enter with just the code. If your still having trouble have your dealer call a Ford tech there are fixes over the air.
