Thanks for the ideas. After surfing for a long time, I was able to find embedded documentation with an itty bitty number 1/2 next to it. Says it won't work if you have push button start. Wish the dealer knew this information as it would have saved me hours of hunting. Also, the accessory website needs to have this information included in easy to read text (it is not even on the accessory page)
I hope Mark Fields reads the forum or has someone scanning.
I do consider this a safety issue for the CMax that could be easily fixed.
if you lose your key while swimming, running, xc skiing etc and can't get back in the car - you can become hypothermic quite easily. Let's hope Ford figures out a way to make this an option.
Adrian has lost his while running. I rescued a pair of cross country skiers who lost their key and it was very cold outside. Unless you are active, you don't realize how important this feature is on a car.
I seriously might have considered a different vehicle if I had known that it was incompatible, although I love my CMax other than this issue (and no panic alarm - see other post from another CMax owner)
Thanks for listening to my concerns.
