Garage door opener

Does the car really have to be on to use the garage door opener via a button on the mirror? Or is there a setting to change it? Thank you!

Okay. That's a little better. I wonder why. My Ford Edge Sport didn't have to be on at all. It's hard getting used to different features.

Uhhhhh security reasons? I would not want my garage door to be opened at will with no power to the car. If it was that easy, whats to stop someone from breaking your car window in front of your house and just opening the garage door?

Why would you need to use the home link to open the garage without your car being on?
