Why is my focus acting up? Even though the driver door is closed, the indicator alarms. Sometimes the wiper comes on by it self and such crazy stuff.

On the door latch attached to the car body, the switch for the alarm is right behind the hook that the door locks on to. It should be covered in black rubber. While the key is in the car, press this switch in, wiggle it around, and see if it stops "alarming". It's possible this switch has been damaged and needs replacement.

I have a 1998 Land Rover Discovery with alarm problems.

Easy dont bother locking the car i never lock any of my cars if a tea leaf wants to get in then let them as i dont even bother with a CD player ,your problem will have to go to a dealer with the relevant software to be able to diagnose the problem correctly ,it could be a simple fault with a worn lock mechanism on the back of the door lock barrel though so take the door panel off and check it out before you go to the dealer

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.

I have a 2005 Ford Focus. The anti theft system was locked accidentally. How can I unlock the system.

If you dont have a key fob you could probably do it this way. Open the driver's door, get in the vehicle and close the door, open the driver's window and lock the door with the key. Then unlock the door manualy from inside the car this should trigger the antitheft alarm. Close the door and cycle the key to lock and unlock the door. This sometimes works

My alarm keeps going off and sometimes i cant lock the doors. the door light says drivers door open when i turn the ignaition on

Most likely cause is the door switch. A faulty switch (in this case the driver's door) will give a false indication that the door is constantly open, thereby tripping the alarm. It could also prevent you from locking the doors since the switch is indicating the door is open. There are really only 2 ways to correct this.
1) Spray the driver's door switch with a lubricant and manually press the switch several times to work the lubricant in. A stuck switch will often start working again.
2) Replace the driver's door switch.
Best of luck and hope you found this answers your problem.

My alarm activates and interior light comes on when door is

Replace the drivers door switch, it's shorting out. It's on the B-pillar below your door latch, covered in rubber that you can pull off to get access to it. You can take it out, just tie a string to the electrical connector and tape it to the door so you don't loose it. The switches are fairly cheap at the dealership.

Scion tc 2005: door indicator on gauge wont shut off?

check all of your door latches to see if they all work. If there are sensors on the body where the door closes toward the center B PILLAR of the car it has sensors for the doors, then push them in and see which one is bad. Sometimes the door sensors are located in the door actuator which usually goes to the driver;s door due to it's high use.
