#367353 Convenience Pack - Keyless Entry A Warning

Posted by DunkPoole on 23 May 2014 - 08:01 PM

Interesting stuff, I will make sure my keys are kept out of range. I'm interested where you say the convenience pack was free on April builds, how did you find this out? My reason for asking is my dealer charged me for it and I'm sure mine was a April build/ order

 When I was looking at the the best price I could get I found this on drive the deal  http://www.drivethedeal.com/buy-a-new-car/ford/fiesta+hatchback/index.html. I mentioned this to my local dealer and he said yes the Convenience pack was now free on the Titanium from April 1 orders. I ordered from my local dealer in the end. I see you have an ST2 though ? You could have had the Style Pack for free ? 


ST models: Please note that our quotes include a FREE Style Pack (if option is fitted to the car). 
Titanium models: Please note that our quotes include a FREE Convenience Pack (if option is fitted to the car). Please request this on ordering.

I have keyless entry start/stop button too. Be careful if you keep your key close to where you park. I park my car in the drive at the side of the house the other side of the outside wall and always keep my keys on a hook in the hall on that outside wall. The car is parked within 3 to 4 feet of the key and the signal manages to penetrate the cavity wall and about 3 feet of air and allow me to unlock the car (although not the boot strangely) with the key on the hook indoors. I will have to get in the habit of keeping the keys elsewhere !


I had a Suzuki Swift with keyless entry and start a few years back and that had a more limited range for the key. I always have a habit of checking and double checking to see if my car is locked and the boot with the fiesta is a real pain with keyless as you can never be sure thats locked as the release works if the key is in range.
