So I got this 2024 BB and now it has decided to send me the Check rear seats message every time I shut the engine. (Even though there's nothing in the back seat or on the floor there). Does any one else experienced this? What could cause it and how can it be fixed?

When you turn it off in settings, it stays that way for 6 months I believe then you'll have to do it again. An easy fix for a nice feature that's made to prevent kids and animals getting left in the car.

Yup, opening the rear door wakes up the nanny every time. Sounds like you found the fix!

I turned my off way more than six months ago and it hasn’t turned itself back on. I’m 55; the kids ship has sailed lol

We have ours turned off, to me it is an annoying thing. How can you forget you have your pet or your kid in the vehicle?

People coming up with these annoying things are the same ones I belive who decided we need “rain sensing wipers” can’t we all just keep looking out the windshield when we are driving and make a decision that there is water coming from above and we need to turn on our GD wipers?
Really do we need all this tech to survive our daily commute? Plenty of good stuff but… I shake my head sometimes at the world we are living in.
There is a case to be made for overkill. We as a human race are still capable of making decisions without being told by our cars

A few years ago, here in Albuquerque, a woman left her baby in the carseat while taking another child in to the dentist. The baby died from the heat, and our idiot prosecuter tried to put her in jail. As if she wasn't already devasted.

It sounds stupid, but I did it once. My 3 year old granddaughter decided she wanted to go with me to pick up her siblings from school, then promptly fell asleep in the carseat. I didn't normally take her with me, and I completely spaced it. Fortunately, it was only a few minutes and I remembered on the way back to the car. Scared the sh**t out of me.

p.144 of the 2024 BS Owner's Manual:
========
Semiannual Reminder (If Equipped)
When you switch the system off, a
message appears every six months as a
reminder that the system is off. You can
switch the system back on or leave it off.
========
Ford Owner's Manuals are a curious bunch of hodgepodge writing and bad editing.
For example, there is no "If Equipped" notice on earlier sections of this topic.
However, there is one item that makes it clear that this topic was copied and pasted from the full size Bronco's Owner's Manual, specifically the item about "if any door is removed." {highlighting mine)
====================
REAR OCCUPANT ALERT
SYSTEM LIMITATIONS

The system does not function if any door
is removed.

The system does not detect the presence
of objects or passengers in the rear seat.
It monitors when rear doors are opened
and closed.
Note: It is possible to receive an alert when
there is no rear seat occupant, but alert
conditions are met.
Note: It is possible to receive no alert when
there is an occupant in the rear seat, if alert
conditions are not met. For example, if a rear
seat occupant does not enter the vehicle
through a rear door.
Note: The audible warning does not sound
when the front door is opened before you
switch the ignition off.
SWITCHING REAR OCCUPANT
ALERT SYSTEM ON AND OFF

1. Press Settings on the touchscreen.
2. Press Vehicle.
3. Switch Rear Occupant Alert on or off.
Note: The default setting is on.
Note: Performing a system reset causes
the system to switch on again.
