2016-19 Utility Liftgate Release Fix
Ford introduced a new "feature" for the 2016 Utility Liftgate. The liftgate is always in a "locked" mode unless you use the key to open it at the liftgate or you use the release button in the ceiling console. I have gotten a lot of complaints about how the liftgate operates and was asked numerous times if I could "fix" it so it locked and unlocked with the power door locks.
I have found a way to program the 16 Utility so the timer switch is non-functional and the Lock/Unlock Status of the Liftgate follows the door locks!! - DEALER PROGRAMMING REQUIRED
THIS IS A GREAT SOLUTION FOR THOSE EITHER WITHOUT KEYLESS ENTRY OR THOSE WITH KEYLESS ENTRY USING THE LOCK/UNLOCK/PANIC KEY FOB
FUNCTIONALITY AFTER NEW PROGRAMMING
PRIOR TO THIS MODIFICATION THE POWER DOOR LOCKS DID NOT CONTROL THE FUNCTiONALITY OF THE LIFTGATE
