I was just wondering because I've been using my aftermarket alarm on my Gen 4 for quite sometime and I forget if the lights flashed when using the factory remote when locked and unlocked.

Mine don't


The only time the lights flash on mine is when my daughter or son press the panic button

I don't think mine do anything either. Just turns the inside lights on when I unlock it. The lights flash when I hit the panic button though, lol.

All light com on, when unlocking (including appraoch lights or "puddle" lights, head and taillights and all interior lighting). No lights when locking, but horn sounds.

Must be an SEL thing then...
Us lowly SES owners aren't so privileged.




btw... I want some of those puddle lights below the mirrors, I really need to make a trip to a junkyard.

I have a 2000se and the headlights only flash when the alarm goes off or when I hit the panic button. But when i arm- the horn honks , and disarm- the interior lights go on.

I have a 2001 SEL (exactly like Troper8 just a year earlier), and only my interior lights come on when I unlock. Did '01 and earlier have puddle lights? If there is a quick change I can make to make all the lights go on when I unlock it, please tell me because the more lights that come on when I am coming to the car, the better.

Ive got a Gen III Sable, and it chirps when you push the lock button on the key fob twice. It chirps at when you pop the trunk from the remote, too. I set it up to do that though.

Kind of a fuzzy pic but, here is a "puddle" or as Ford calls them "approach" lights.

Would there be any easy way to make the lights flash in a gen 4? Cause my don't but my brother gen 3 do. Do only the cars with DRL flash?
I would like to know the same since mine don't flash either!

On my Explorer, when you un-lock the doors, all the interior lights plus puddle lights will turn on for 20 seconds, but no head/tails.

When you lock the truck, nothing will happen, but if you press the lock button again quickly the horn will beep and the lights will flash (Including fog lights).

Interestingly, when the horn beeps, listen to it. If the horn beeps twice quickly, it means one of your doors is ajar. If it just beeps once, everything is locked.

I went to lock my car when somebody didn't have a door shut all the way once and noticed that. That's really cool how that does that.
