According to the manual for the 2000 Windstar, this has to be done
by the dealer or with the Remote Entry Keypad, if equipped. The
auto lock/auto unlock work together.
These are the instructions if you have the Keypad:
Activating/deactivating autolock with the keyless entry system
Before following the activation or deactivation procedures, make
that the anti-theft system (if equipped) is not armed, ignition is
all vehicle doors and liftgate window are closed.
1. Enter 5 digit entry code
2. Press and hold 7/8 control
3. Press and release 3/4 control while holding 7/8 control
4. Release 7/8 control.
The horn will chirp once if autolock was deactivated or twice (one
and one long chirp) if autolock was activated.
To re-activate autolock, repeat steps 1-4.
I started the reply after reading the 2000 manual but downloaded the
2001 manual to update the information before sending the message. I
forgot to change the year to 2001. The 2000 manual does not mention
the Keypad method.
