Question about 2005 Lincoln LS
Some car alarms will go off if your battery is dying
Posted on Feb 05, 2010
I have Volvo S40 and the car has inside the salon infra-red motion sensors. They set off in case unauthorized movement is detected inside - for example burglar got into the car through window you-d forgotten to close. In case you lock a dog in your car and go to the supermarket, dog's movements can set off the alarm. In my case these were MOSQUITOS which got into the car whilst I was in holiday home, and I couldn't figure out - why alarms sets off every now and then during the night. There're two solutions: 1) "Disengage" the motion sensors by stickering on top of them some adhesive tape or any non-transparent material. 2) In my Volvo on the dashboard, there's a special button (with picture of a car and some "waves" coming off the car, which obviously simbolizes alarm sound). I can disengage the sensors by pressing this button, BUT! But I strictly should be doing that in the following sequence: 1) Shut down the engine (but the key still in the ignition, in the "standby" or whatever it is called position, when all the dashboard lights are on) 2) Your car doors should be closed at that moment. 3) Now press the "disengage" button and the special light goes red or green. 4) remove the keys from the ignition. 5) Leave the car and lock as usual. AFAIK The motion sensors will be disengaged until next ignition start. Goodluck. ps. Alternatively read the car manual. Some times one can find nice things there! :)

Not a solution, but details about the same problem with my car: I have a 99 Lincoln Continental and have noticed correlations between certain conditions and the frequency of the car alarm going off.
When it is hotter outside, the alarm goes off more frequently than when it is colder.
The more of a slant the car is parked on, the more often the alarm goes off. My boyfriend's driveway is on an incline and any time I park my car there, the alarm will go off every 30 seconds. If I move the car to the level street, it doesn't go off at all. This has been noticed on other slanted places I've attempted to park as well.
