Lock Key in on purpose with keyless entry?

A friend of mine has an older ~2006 Ford Explorer with a keyless entry pad. When he goes canoeing he locks his keys inside the car so they don't get lost or wet, then when he is ready to leave he enters his code in the keyless entry pad, inserts the key in the ignition and drives off.

I have a 2013 Escape SEL, it has the Keyless entry panel and Intelligent Access keys. I don't know if this same functionality is possible. If you lock the keys in, all you have to do is pull a door handle and the door unlocks, so anyone could steal the vehicle if you leave the keys inside. Is there a code for the keyless entry to force the doors to stay locked until the unlock code is entered?

or some other way to do this?

Also are these intelligent keys water resistant, are they easily destroyed by falling in water?

To lock your Intelligent Access Key inside of your vehicle you need to use the keyless entry panel to lock your doors.

Hide your Intelligent Access Key inside the vehicle.

Press the 7*8 and 9*0 buttons on the keyless entry panel to lock the doors.

The Intelligent Access Key inside of the vehicle will not allow anyone to open the doors until you key in your access code on the keyless entry panel.

Well will you look at that, I had my FE off, left the keys on the center console, rolled down the window, closed the door hit the buttons locked the keys' inside. Tried opening the doors with using the sensor's and no go. That's cool. Hit my code 1-2-3-4 and all unlocks. Cool find.

Awesome feature if you ask me

Will be great when you head to the beach or gym. Just leave everything in the car.

1 downside to it all if someone breaks into the FE, they can drive it away. lol

If you're paranoid, you can also put your key inside a tin case like an altoids can. It should block any signals from the key to the car.

You should be fine with the keyless entry panel. An added measure just in case you ever forget the lock the door.

I'd just throw the keys under the seat. They'll never find it

Unless there is another secret compartment you can think of.
