Hello my name is***** there is not a manual setting that you can change to have them turn off sooner. This is a programming issue within the vehicles body control module. The timing in the module would need to be changed with a Ford scan tool. You would need to either take it to the dealer or to a shop that has this scan tool that would be willing to do it. From my experience most dealers will not do it as they refuse to change anything from the factory setting. If you check around or if you have a good relationship with your dealer they may do it for you. I wish they made it easier but they do not. I hope this gives you a little direction on this. If you need anything else please let me know as I strive for an excellent rating. Thank you.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
