2002 ford windstar alarm system

My alarm keeps going off- even when it's not set. Is there a fuse I can pull to disable either the alarm or the horn until I can get it serviced?

    2000 Windstar. The car is parked in the drive right now and in the last 10 minutes the alarm has gone off 3 times! WHen we unlock the doors, the alarm is deactivated, but I'd rather have it locked.



    My hunch is that the passanger side door, which has been giving us some problems closing, is not closing all the way and making good contact. I took it to the Ford garage and they greased the rails and cleaned the contacts but it's worse than ever now.

SOURCE: door ajar idiot light wont go out and bells is going off on a 1997 ford windstar minivan. which fuse do i pull thanks no manual

Sound like one of the door jamb switches is bad. Try taking a pencil or screw driver and pushing in on each door switch. Push the switch beyond the "flush" point to see if the switch is just not fully closing.

SOURCE: Battery keeps dying on 2001 Ford Windstar.

Check your battery terminals make sure they are clean and corrosion free.
Also check all ...A-L-L courtesy lights in your car. there are some ceiling mounted lights that are passenger operated and may be on... Also check your glove compartment and consoles for lights.
Also check for charger cords... These have indicator lights and sometimes can drain the batt as well.
Also, under the hood, is a gravity activated lamp . Open the hood and make sure that it's going off and staying off as the hood closes...
Let me know if you find anything...

I would take out the door switch, cut the wires and then twist them together, tape them. And the switch is now gone an not the causeible problem anymore.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Windstar Error Code P1131 And P1151

those two codes are for the o2 sensors. both are the upstream sensors on the front and rear banks. so they are desinagted bank 1 sensor 1 and bank 2 sensor 1. them most common cause for this is faulty o2sensors , bad gas and of a poor running engine. so if your car runs good (no misfire) and gas is ok then replace the o2sensor witch is the very most common cause.

SOURCE: 2008 Ford Escape Horn Fuse keeps blowing after

I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!

SOURCE: 1996 Explorer anti-theft system won't disable

Try re-setting the computer...Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and leave off for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the computer to reset. The charger may have interupted the signal or something.

How do I disable horn?


Check your fuses. It varies from car to car but you may have a fuse dedicated only to the horn unit. In that case you can just pull the fuse without affecting anything else..

Other than that you will need to pull the wiring connectors off the horn unit and tape them up to keep any moisture and dirt out. Hopefully that will not trigger any issue with the security system.

How to disconnect the alarm


Depending if it is a aftermarket or a factory alarm, they should all have fuses that can be removed. By removing the fuse, you may lose your keyless entry option. Most aftermarket alarms have a siren that is usually mounted under the hood in the engine compartment area. I've seen where people have cut the wire going to the siren to disable it but keep the power going to the alarm system to keep the keyless entry still functional if it came with the alarm system.
Factory alarms usually use the existing horn for the alarm. If that is the case, you might need someone who is experienced to disable the circuit so that the horn will not sound if alarm goes off but the horn will still be functional when needed. Hope this helps.

My car alarm / key remote broke, I believe it is a factory alarm. I don't want the horn to go off, what do I do to disable the alarm system once I open the door


You may be able to disable the alarm, by opening the door with the key. Or pull the fuse, to the alarm system in the fuse box. Open your key fob remote, and check the internal 3v battery as well. It could be dead, or the (outer) case buttons are not making contact with the board which has the actual buttons on it. When pressing the buttons manually on the board they should make a "click", else wise they are the source of your problem in the remote.

it sounds like the anti-theft module needs to be reset so it won`t go off when it shouldn`t.the module thinks the car is being stollen as it went into anti-theft mode and needs to be reset.usually the light for this problem(gross vacume leak) will reset on its own when the computer goes through its test procedure for the evap system and detects no fault.

What your hearing is the factory alarm not the horn. Connect the battery when the alarm sounds go to the drivers door lock with the key and lock and unlock the door until the alarm goes off . Then reinstall the fuse for the horn.,

If you lock your doors with the remote, you have to use the remote to unlock them or it set off the alarm. I don't know why the manufacturers designed it that way(kind of stupid)but it's programmed into the on board computer. You can't disable the alarm without creating a worse problem somewhere else.

My honda alarm keeps going off while car locked


there are sensors in each lock cylinder, trunk, and hood latch. Is it an ex? try locking the car with the remote, then use the key to unlock each door, if the alarm goes off, that's the bad switch. look in your fuse panels and see, I'm pretty sure if you pull the fuse to disable the alarm, you will lose your power locks
