Door ajar switch would be the first to check out based on the door light being on.

Why does the car alarm keeps going off?

does the alarm set when you lock car with the fob and turn off when opening car with the fob ?if so the problem could lay with the alarm sensing what it thinks is a break in attempt so check that all interior lights are off when vehicle locked, don't forget trunk and engine bay as there are sometimes lights under the hood, make sure all windows are completely shut and close the air vents as wind blowing through dash vents could activate the ultra sonics let me know how you get on

Door alarm comes on while driving.

This is caused by a defective door ajar switch in one of the 4 doors. The switch is located on the back of the door latch mechanism inside the door. The system can be tested to id the defective switch which is far better than just removing all 4 door panels and rear glass channels to access the 4 switches. Each switch is about $15.00 time to remove them about 4-5 hours for all doors to do this the hard way.

The Factory alarm keeps going off without pushing the panic button on the keys of my 2002 Mercury Courgar.

to eliminate the possibility the key fob is causing this, remove the battery form the fob-if it continues, you have an issue with a sensor on your alarm (either door or hood)-try locking/unlocking the doors manually, or check to see if the hood switch located on the passenger side under the hood is damaged or stuck open.

(driver)door switch does not work properly dash shows doors open when all doors secured. alarm system dbl beeps interior lts stay on. attempts to reset alarm system failed.

this car has door lock switches attached to every door lock inside the door,try lubricating fluid in the lock mechanism first but if it fails you will have to remove each door panel, unplug the door switch jump it with a paper clip and this door being the only one open see it light goes out continue this until you find which door is the problem and replace that lock.

Antitheft alarm on our 2001 mercury sable goes off on its own

Get a new car! JK - my 2002 Sable does the same thing. It can be 5 times a day then not for a month, or 2-3 times a day for a week straight. It happens in different locations and different weather and different times of the day. To my knowledge has never done it in my garage at home.
I have not called a dealer. Has anybody ever found the real problem? Could it be in the remote itself? I tried leaving it unlocked at work, but yesterday it went off just as I was reaching toward the door handle.

Instrument Cluster lights do not go on, emergency lights steady- Sable 2002

Has anyone figured this problem out? Our 2002 Sable just started this as well...instrument cluster lights out, turn/hazard lights on when the headlight switch is turned on. This has the auto on/off switch with fog lights. This is happening in the auto and manual on mode. Any solutions would be appreciated.<br />
