Why does my 1999 Lincoln Continental alarm system go off by itself and then shut off after 5 or 10 minutes?


this could be the door striker plastic has broken off this is the post sticking out of the frame when you close the door the lock closes around the striker to keep the door closed this striker could also have moved slightly from opening/closing the door thousands of times try this open your windows get out close all doors set the alarm wait a minute then try to lightly move the door/s in and out by grabbing the door at the rear part where the door locks to the frame where the striker is if it has any play in it the connection will break and this will make the alarm think the door has opened and the alarm will sound getting the door to close tighter will stop it from happening this is also true for the trunk if you press down on the trunk or your able to pull up on it a little the same thing will happen its loose and will trigger the alarm if this is not the problem I would then go to the door pin switches that turn the lights on/off when the door is opened/closed especially if the alarm was aftermarket installed but you can be sure the alarm thinks that something is opened and the door/trunk/hood are the only places that they are

Pull your horn fuse for the time being. The answer is replacing the PCM with one that didn't have security installed. Disconnect the battery when pulling the PCM! It should be located just behind you coolant reservoir tank on the firewall. Do not buy a PCM from Auto Zone.

Used the key to unlock door and alarm started going off. put key in ignition to start, but wouldn't. removed battery cable, do to neighbors, and the alarm keeps sounding. how can I shut it off? just...


With the drivers window down, and the doors closed. and locked connect the battery and lock and unlock the tailgate with the key, you need to unlock it twice to unlock the doors and turn off the alarm. If the locks are working like thier supposed to the drivers door will be unlocked and opening it won't set off the alarm. the truck should be back to normal. If not disconnect the battery again. Drivers window down. Put the key in the switch and turn the key on to the run position. With all the doors closed connect the battery. connect it good and don't bounce it around. If the battery casbles aren't clean clean them good so it'll connect good. If it still is alarming then the doors switches are likly. Or the door locking motors. You should be able to lock all the doors ( including the hatch) by hand and get the system to reset. Try it all again using a different door to double unlock as a lock switch might be sticking. If the system can't verify that all the doors are closed and locked it won't reset. If you connect the battery wihg the key turned on the system thinks it's already running and appeares to be in the unset mode.

Car died and now alarm will not turn off.


manually lock and unlock the driver door with the key. ( i have the same problem) I think its a fuse problem, because if I keep locking and unlocking the car will finally give in and unlock. try opening and closing the door while doing this too.. it seems to work for me.

1998 xj8 here: alarm keeps going off


The most common issue with the security system if the car is locked up and all the doors and windows are closed including the sunroof is the drivers door lock/latch assembly.
