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

The power door on our 1998 Silhouette van will not close. The door starts to close and at the last second, as it starts to touch the locking mechanism, it retreats as if there is some resistance. The...


Your problem is the door thinks that it is already locked and closed. You need have the sliding door unlocked, have someone pull the handle as if they were going to open the door and then use a tool to "Open" the latch that normally would hold the door closed.

2002 passat door latch thinks it's open when it's closed


The switch is part of the loca assy. and is about $200. Try this first...

Open the driver’s door. With a screwdriver or equivalent trip the latch on the door 2 clicks so it is in the locked position, just under that finger get a can of Brakecleen and hose the snot out of it. I mean really firehouse it. As fast as it evaporates I still had it running out of the door drains. Be careful not to get cleaner on the plastic door panel, trust me take extra care. Open the outside door handle to release the latch, then open and shut the door for a while, like a few dozen times, to work the latch. Repeat as necessary. Follow up by shooting some PB Blaster, WD-40 or whatever light lube is handy. If this doesn’t work, give it might take a day or so to work free. If still nothing then the micro switch might actually be broken, but this usually does the trick

Everytime i lock my van the locks keep unlocking themselves


My Honda did this when the driver's door wasn't fully closed.
Does the inside light (dome light) turn on and off correctly when you open and close the driver's door?

If not, then the door latch might be loose or the door sensor switch might have failed (so it thinks the door is open even when it's closed securely)

The passanger side sliding door on my 94 Crysler Town and Country had been working fine, this morning however when my daughter tried to close it the door bounced back open, and now the door will not close,...


I think something maybe blocking it from closing check really well around the door and near the sensors. If that doesnt work i think a sensor went bad and now wants to stay open. Its like a position sensor tells the door how far to go and when to stop.

2002 taurus passenger door lock


Mine did this. I went around to each door and sprayed a liberal amount of WD-40 in the latch, then open and closed each door about five times. It hasn't done it since. I think the switch inside was not moving freely.

The power sliding passenger door will not open even manually. At first it didn't want to close, but after I slammed it shut it didn't want to open. A few days later I was trying to get the door panel off...


I think you have a latch issue or a latch release issue, pull the door panel and try and release the door latch, pull the latch and try to see what if anything is wrong with it, also make sure the linkage going to the latch from the release handle is hooked up or not otherwise damaged.

2002 Toyota Sienna Simphony - elect. rear slidding door won't open but does close


Might be similar - might not. I occasionally have this problem and a problem with closing at times. really bugs me as I cant recreate the problem. Here's what i do ( electronically unlock the door, then manually unlock and relock ( big tab at eye height on the door ) try, open door manually , close and repeat.
Not sure why it does this - but I think I have done this routine a dozen times over the years and something in the sequence gets it all thinking straight again. best of luck to you.
