Hi all, just took delivery of a '24 Raptor in Shelter Green. Do any of the other '24s not have working sensors on the door handles to lock/unlock? We tried all the raptors on the lot and none worked. Wasn't sure if it's a part Ford is waiting on or if they removed the tech on the raptor. Lights turn on with key proximity, and door key code works, but the door handle sensors/button do not.

Does your driver side work? If the battery is low, the first thing it does is shuts off the keyless entry on the passenger side. Its a ford thing, both the Raptor and the GT350 do that.

My door sensors work just fine on my 2024. I believe you have to slide your hand on the inside of the handle (with key fob on your person) and should unlock. I know sometimes when you just grab the handle and try to open the door it may not work.

Anybody notice how easily the interior plastics scratch?
Anyone notice a dash creaking sound on the drivers side, by the HUD/A pillar area? It's pretty slight, but still annoying when driving without the music on. Almost sounds like a plastic on plastic creaking over every little bump. Haven't been able to isolate it yet when putting pressure on the various trim pieces while driving.

I had the same creaking sound. I agree not loud but with no music a bit annoying. I though it was coming from the pillar and tried to push in all sections to see if it went away. For me it turned out to be the section in the picture in the door. I pressed on it and the creaking noise went way. Not sure if the noice will return, but I guess at least I know were to press on it to get rid of the sound lol.

That's the same as mine, fixed that annoying sound immediately.

It almost seem like a hit and miss to lock it pressing the button, I have to press on it a few times for it to lock. Try opening the door after you are near and closing it then try. The unlocking feature generally does not give me any issues. I think my 2023 was the same so I did not think of it as much.

Both driver and passenger door don't work. Touch, hold hand inside handle, pull on door, etc. The truck does "turn on" as the key gets within close proximity to the vehicle, meaning lights turn on and there's an audible noise, but nothing on the doors. The SA said a tech told him to hold a finger on the button as a sensor and that might work, but it didn't, either. Strange that all trucks from this dealer are acting the same without anyone else noticing issues yet. Threads are worthless without pictures, so here's the new girl.
