Lincoln Aviator: Doors and Locks / Locking and Unlocking

Your vehicle has an intelligent electronically controlled door system that is in constant communication with overall vehicle systems.

When you lock your vehicle using the lock switch on each door interior trim panel, or by using the keyless entry keypad or the lock sensor on each door exterior trim panel, the exterior door handle switches do not release the doors. This helps to secure your vehicle and prevent unauthorized entry. Also, when your vehicle reaches a speed greater than 12 mph (20 km/h) the exterior door handle switches do not release the doors.

If the airbags deploy or the fuel pump shutoff switch activates, all interior and exterior unlock switches do not unlock your door for six seconds. This helps to secure the doors in the event of a crash. After six seconds, all switches reset and you can open the doors using the interior and exterior unlatch switches.
