searching for info on Ford explorer 2006 settings/program?

by mementh / September 23, 2008 3:14 PM PDT

Howdy, I have a 06 ford escape and I am seeing options that i can set for like the remote to open doors and how some things work. Those are listed in the user manual, but I want to know if there are other things I can set or change to suit how I want things to run.

I don't know where to search in any detail or what phrases or such to find out about settings a such.

I am also curious to learn what settings can be changed in the computer for the engine to make it run diffrent or tune it up.
(i realize the equipment for that might be expensive so i am just curious about it)

I also know that its possable to start the SUV without the key via a bunch of diffrent motions of the starter handbrake and other things... and i would love to find a way to disable this since thieves know about this and use it to steal.
