Question about 2003 Mercury Mountaineer
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?
It could be , Take it into a ford dealership or some place that deals with auto electric problems end all so installs allarm systems in cars to be check out, To me it looks like you have a short some where because of the door light problem.

you need to find out witch door jam switch it is they are about $40 each you can take a ohm meter and check the electrical connection. place the wires on the pins with it open then check when you press the button to make sure that the numbers change if no change on the ohm meter then that is the bad door switch

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

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
Check the locking mechanism is lubricated properly. Try spraying some penetrating oil in the mechanism (just above 3 in the diagram) Wait 10 minutes, and re-try.
If the actuator does not fully extend, it will need to be replaced.

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.
