2003 Mercury Sable alarm system goes on while parked

I have a 2003 Mercury Sable bought new in 2003. A neighbor has told me lately that the alarm system sometimes goes on while the car is parked; horn sounds for about a minute, lights flash for 2-3 minutes , then it stops. Leaving the car with the dealer has resulted in big charges and the neighbor reporting no help after the cars return. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem and what was the fix..?

Not in the coolant system, you flushed

2001 Mercury Sable Intermittent Fuel Pump?


You are right that it could be either component, or something else electrical. The security system will kill the fuel system if the wrong key is used or the system is acting up.
A mechanic would check base fuel pressure with a gauge and also see if the pump is getting power from the relay when it fails to start.

2001 mercury sable alarm goes off for no reason


Most all alarm systems have various sensors for detecting such things as vibration, heat and or movement around your vehicle and so forth. If these sensors are set to sensitive and or are defective the alarm system will be more of a nuisance than a deterrent. Hope This Helps
If this is an OEM type of alarm you might want to contact your dealer for this information.
There are 2 sensors which you have to be aware of. One is under the hood and one is in the trunk. Disconnect the trunk sensor and check whether the car will function normal.

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.

Alarm Malfunctioning - 2004 Sable


Have your battery checked for shorts. Mine was defective on a new Lincoln. Same problem. Even sat in it at 18 degrees one night to appease neighbors whom my alarm woke up.
Check connections at every possible point if the battery tests good.
Get up 30 minutes before alarm usually goes off and see if neighbor has loud car or slams his car door. Motion sensors can set it off too.

Shift cable out of sync


The cable goes to the main shift shaft on the top of the transmission. Loosen the locking nut. Manually move the shaft to the park position. Then make sure your shift in the car is in Park. Then tighten the locking nut at the end of the shaft on the transmission.
