Tailgate foot switch-turn it off!

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, I'm trying to figure out how to turn this feature off. My wife has a 2016 edge SE. My dog triggers it and it closes while I'm working on her crate.  More than once I've felt like an Edge appetizer.  I went thru the menu and tried the power tailgate choice.  All that did was stop the tailgate switch from opening it normally.   It didn't disable the foot switch like I want. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Gerry B

Don’t keep the key in your pocket.  It only works if the key is within 3 feet of the hatch.

Same problem here.  My big feet trigger it while I'm cleaning or unloading.  If I'm cleaning, it's a serious hazard for my fingers.  I have identified a place where I visibly hang my keys while I'm in the cargo area.  Ford really needs to create a setting to disable it on demand.
