Proximity/Walk away locks

Post by SevinSyn » Thu Dec 28, 2017 11:01 am

So I've been watching a lot of LivePD lately on A&E. I've noticed that every officer that's driving an interceptor sedan, when they walk away from their running car and they get around towards the front bumper, their cars horn beeps 3 times and the doors lock, and vise versa when they walk back up it unlocks.

Does anyone know if this is an option for Taurus's?

Is it unlocking when they are touching the door handle, or before they touch it? You probably know this, but my 2017 with push button start has sensors on the door handle to lock and unlock the door if you have the key fob with you.

I just picked up a 2018 today. It is back to a key start, which I like better, but it doesn't have the sensors on the door handle. I will miss that part. I keep forgetting to pull the keys out of my pocket. LOL.
