My XLT has the code panel on the B pillar but other than that I must unlock from key fob. Lariats and Platinums can unlock with fob in pocket. It’ll unlock when you put your hands around the door handle and lock when you push the button on the handle.How about automatic unlock when the fob is close?
This was hard to get used to since my older vehicles, which were a lot cheaper, could unlock without me looking for my keys. Heck they locked when I walked away from the car. Very annoying.
