As TechFan mentioned in a previous post, perhaps it's best to use the deadbolt ONLY when you're inside your Escape. Ultimately, a fix is needed.

We rarely lock the door if we are inside, but if we do it is only the deadbolt. In fact, we only use the deadbolt from the outside. It seems a bit redundant to have dual locking capability.

Should look into this problem and see if my latch is affected.

It is the same lock. The lock can be mounted upside down to go on the other side of the door. I know that some people suggested that the orientation by escape covered this but as I said in a previous post we had a trailer for 3 years with same style lock and no problems. That is why I started this thread on Memorial Day weekend. Needless to say we have not locked the deadbolt from the outside since. We just didn't want to take the chance of getting locked out again.

I seldom use the lock, but this discussion has me wondering. My key seems to be removable in each of the three possible positions - neutral (12 o'clock), locked (9 o'clock), and unlocked (3 o'clock). When locking the deadbolt, the key can be turned back to the 12 o'clock position and removed. Is this the recommended procedure and, if used, will it avoid disaster? Not sure if that is the right question, but I am a bit confused about the failure mode. Thanks...Glenn.

I guess we could considered "Consumers of record" if we had been provided with literature for the entrance lock and a warranty opportunity.

When we picked up our 2008 5.0 last month, Dave told us to return the key for the deadbolt to the 12 o'clock position before removing it. There is a soft click when it gets back to the 12 o'clock position after locking the deadbolt.

I spoke with Fastec this morning and got the list of key codes that are affected by the recall. They all start with HF and the numbers are:
304, 307, 308, 311, 313 315, 316, 320, 322,323, 328, 331, 335,
339, 342, 343, 347, 349

Hope that helps!
