Does anyone know how to reprogram or reset 2019 Ford Escape Remote? When I press the door open button once, it opens all the doors. I took it back to the dealership where I bought it and they couldn't figure it out. They tried looking for a reset option on interior console and steering wheel, but no luck.

There are YouTube videos that talk about this, I just went to my local locksmith had him do it for me. He had a computer that hooks up to the unit, cost me $85 to have it done, those guys are smart...

You don't need to relearn it to make it only unlock the drivers door (and a second press unlocks all).

If you want 2 stage unlock, all you do is press and hold the lock and unlock button on the remote for 3 seconds, and that toggles single or 2 stage unlocking.

Page 60 in the owners manual has the details.

I love owners manuals, it is surprising how many people don't read them… lol

back when everybody had VCR's, all the clocks were flashing... lmao

Weird, I did it with my 2017 Escape and my parents 2020 Explorer (which is more closely related to yours with Intelligent Access which all 2019 Escape SE and higher have).

I am assuming that it is the remote unlock and not proximity? I changed all of ours to one press all unlock because while it used to be a security thing with just a driver at night, but now it is mostly during the day with multiple passengers always.

I don't have a helper to video it, but this is all there is to it with the IKT. I don't recall the IA fob being any different.
