This problem is caused by a defective door switch or security system module, the most likely and most common problem is one of the door switches (one in each door two in the rear hatch) senses the door is being opened without a key or remote signal, the only way to track this problem down is to have the local Ford dealer scan the system, the scanner will show what intrusion sensor is creating the unwanted alarm set.

Alarm goes off for no reason


It can be any of the car door not got properly locked or the door is locked but the switch is not sensing the door locked.Open and close each door again properly.
Or else its problem with any of switch wiring getting in contact with alarm wiring causing it to happen.And last thing alarm connections needs to be inspected.Its getting short somewhere in between.

There are few helplinks with solutions,to troubleshoot these types of problems.I suggest going through these links.

My alarm on 2002 ford explorer goes on at random at night. Door ajar light comes on internittently. Any ideas on how to fix or disarm the Alarm?


most likely you have a door switch problem, you must take to shop to have it scanned, and they can tell you what door it is. most times it is drivers door, because that is the door that gets the most use.

2002 Ford Explorer "Door Ajar" stays on and Alarm frequently goes


if the door ajar light is on then get a can of PB BLASTER at your local parts store and spray all the door latch assembleys really good and open and close each door about ten to fifteen times this will usually free up the ajar switch

Have you had the system checked and the codes pulled? If so and nothing was found,you can bypass each alarm trigger one at a time. If you have the patience, do this yourself and park the car where it happens. If the alarm stopsgoing off wrong,you have found the trigger and/or circuit setting it off. Sometimes this is what it takes because the system is operating in it's parameters and will not set a code? Good Luck.
