Question about 2003 Mercury Mountaineer

Mountaineer alarm problem

My 2003 Mountaineer alarm is randomly going off. At first my husband thought he sat on the keyless button when the keys where in his pocket, but a few hours later the alarm went off again.... and the keys were hanging up. What can we do to fix this before the neighbors think our SUV is getting broke into. Oh, in the same day, we also are experiencing dinging from the inside and the message board is stating that we have a door ajar, but all doors are securely shut. Are these problems related?

SOURCE: keyless door pads

most dealerships use the zip code for your area to open all keyless entry cars if you bought it from a dealer--if you did buy it new you can ask the dealer to run an oasis on the truck & maybe get the code that way

SOURCE: driver sode door lock

The locking solenoid may need to be replaced, or the rod adjusted.
You will need to remove the door panel to watch the movement.
If the solenoid is not fully extending, it will require replacement.
It will look similar to this...

In the picture below, it will be #4

If the actuator does not fully extend, it will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Car thinks door is open all the time

There is a small switch inside the door area, and it is obviously broken. The switch is usually held in place by 1 screw, and has a wire clip attached to the interior side. If you replace that switch. your issue should cease.

Simply remove the screw that retains that switch, pull it out of the body, remove the wire clip. and install the new switch in reverse.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

My alarm goes off intermittently


Try resetting the alarm, using the instructions given at the link below. I'll also copy the text here.

  1. Insert the ignition/door key in the door lock on the driver's- side door of your Mountaineer.
  2. Turn the key to the lock position.
  3. Turn your key to the unlock position.
  4. Turn your key to the lock position.
  5. Turn your key to the unlock position. Your alarm is now disabled. If your key fob works, you can also press the unlock or alarm-disable button on the fob.
  6. Start the Mountaineer's engine and allow the vehicle to run for at least 10 minutes. This will allow the alarm to relearn the default settings. You must make sure that you have disabled the alarm first, however, before you attempt to start the vehicle, so that the alarm will reset itself.

If these instructions don't work, you can try resetting the car's computer by unplugging the battery for half an hour. However, that will reset the keyless entry code, as you can see in the fixya article I link to at the bottom

Mercury Mountaineer car alarm sounds for no reason


Try using the doorkey after the door has been closed as if you did not have power locks. But most of the time, its automatic with the antitheft.

A shorting battery can activate the antitheft system. Have the battery tested.

2002 mountaineer arlarm goes off randomly


My bet is that the alarm goes off when it is windy or when a large truck passes by. If that appears to be the case, the tamper alarm sensitivity needs to be adjusted so that it is less sensitive to movement of the truck.

I cant get the keyless entry code to my 2003 mercury mountaineer. i bought the truck used so i never had the code but i locked my keys in the truck and i need the key code. is there a default code?


You will have to go to the dealer with tittle,and proof
of ownership and VIN# to get the factory code.

You should have 2 keys and a valet key, then program them,
then change the Keyless Door Code

Entry code om drivers door


The keyless entry module is located in the rear of the vehicle on the driver's side. You will need to partially remove the left rear panel in the cargo area. You will then see the keyless entry module bolted behind a metal reinforcement bar. There is a sticker on the module that has the 5 digit entry code.
