Hello,
I have a 2012 Escape (4WD Limited Non-Nav 3.0L) and the remote start sucks. I do not want the engine to shut off when I open the door. I read on the edge forums how to do this for a 2010 Edge. Anyone know how to carry this forward on a 2012 Escape?

Yes that is to protect your my key option.

why the engine shut when opening a door is to be sure that the user will use his key to start the car and this way if the key is programmed as a mykey restricted key, all the restrictions will come into effect.
the remote starter act as an admin key so if it doesn't shut off on pening door, your kids could use the remote to bypass mykey restrictions.

Now, if you dont intend to use mykey at all, you can disable the "shut off on opening door" option when programming the rmst.

Note: Dealers dont want to deactivate for legal reasons.

option 7 in bank two should be disabled to deactivate shut down on opening doors or key-in sense.
