Auto Unlock 2007 Ford Expedition

Post by pc3332132 » Fri May 24, 2019 2:08 am

Hi I am trying to figure out if it is possible to add the auto-unlock feature to my 2007 Ford Expedition XLT. It came with the auto-lock feature but I would like it to auto unlock like my 2007 Ford Explorer Limited if possible. I also recently drove a 2008 Ford Expedition Limited that had the auto-unlock feature as well so I got the VIN and looked up the as-built data for both the 2007 and 2008 Expeditions. So far I have not been able to figure out what section in the IC(instrument cluster) that I need to change to enable this feature or if it is possible.

I have both the FORScan and Ford IDS software w/VCM II as well as access to Ford AS-Built information.

Thanks for any help or guidance you can give.

Dose your ipc have the Auto Unlock option In the settings? My 07 has it but it doesn’t seem to work at all.

After looking through the owner's manual for 2007s and 2008s, it looks like this was not a feature in 2007 at all, only added for 2008.

Wouldn't recommend actually trying this, but a GEM/SJB swap from a 2008+ might get you features that were added to later years.

No, It only has the Auto Lock option. I would be interested in seeing the as built data on your vehicle to see how it compares to mine.

I wonder if it's just a as built programming difference or if the modules are physically different?
