How do I disable the "ARM" "VALET" and "PANIC" feature (4-digits followed by #) ?

Asked by Oct 30, 2016 at 08:17 AM about the 2013 Ford Escape SE

Question type: General

There's a little, rectangular box to the right of my steering wheel. There are 6 buttons to push...the words "ARM" "VALET" and "PANIC" are printed at the top and there is a flashing red light as well. In order to move the car out of park a 4-digit code is required followed by the # button. When the weather gets cold it takes at least 5 minutes of repeatedly punching the code in before my car will shift out of park. I want to disable this so I can turn on the car and be able to shift out of park.
