SOURCE: ALARM SECURITY SYSTEM FUSE BOX FOR FORD ESCORT

Try the batteries in the keyless remote.Then if those are good on the driver side left kick panel. Is the fuse block. on top to the left there is a row of six fuses. two rows of three there should be a cover for it and on the cover there is a indicator on it for the alrm systems. try fuse first. the if thats not it then in the trunk on the right hand side behind the carpet is a box that is held by two #10 screws. take it off and on the box it has two wiring harneses and a antenna looking cable. try the box afterwords though because they are expensive. form ford they are about 400$ . try salvage yards if still no luck i have 3 systems with remotes.

SOURCE: Explorer alarm going off randomly; additional electrical isues

Open drivers door and look at the hinge area. You will see a black rubber accordion looking tube going from the door to the a-pillar. This is the protector for the wiring harness. Wiggle it and see if this recreates your concern. If it does then pop it loose at both ends so you can inspect the wiring.Check each one carefully,feel them and tug on them.You will be looking for one that the wire inside the wiring insulation has broken,the two wires to really look at closley are the YE/BK and BK .
It may also possibly be a door ajar switch sticking and for this take some WD40 and shoot some in each latch on the side of the door and open and close the door several times and this usually un-sticks it.

SOURCE: ford focus rs alarm trouble

if its a factory alarm you put the key in and quickly turn the key on and of i cant remember if its 8 or 9 times but the horn will chirp then you push the lock and unlock on the fob the locks should respond then turn key off and your done. note that if you have more than one fob you have to press lock and unlock on all of them before you turn the key off and i believe you only have about fifteen seconds to do so if not let me know i will look it up at work

My bottons on my keys dont work so how can i turn of my alarm on my ford focus



  • If it is a stock alarm the you can put the key into the ignition and turn the vehicle over and the alarm will shut off. Often time just sticking the key into the drivers door is sufficient but the ignition will surely kill the alarm. It has to be the transponder key though not just a quick cut key.

If your battery voltage is low, this will cause the alarm to go off. Even if you put it in valet mode it will still go off until you change your vehicle battery.

Sometime a weak battery or a battery that is going weak will do this. What happens is as the car is dormat the small voltage used to keep ECU alive drops and triggers a voltage drop to alarm( like it should for unauthorized entry).

ALARM RANDOMLY GOES OFF!!


the factory fit alarm is not voltage sensing .The best advice is to go to VW garage and get them to read the alarm causes,(they can check the last 4).this will give you a good idea where the fault lies.ie door lock mechanism,interior monitor etc..You cannot start looking for problem until you know alarm cause..
