This is normally the alarm switch which is attached to the key barrel on the door. You will have to remove the door trim to get at it.

Reset alarm


I can only suggest one thing that might work.

Disconnect the battery and leave the car overnight. In the morning put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position and then connect the battery.

If that doesn't work you will need the services of an auto locksmith or the dealer. I hope the price you paid for the car was much reduced because of the missing keychain.

Disarm alarm


Get in the car, shut the door, and insert key in ignition.

Turn the key to the RUN position (NOT start, but the position the key is in when the car is running. You DON'T want to start the car).
Turn key off.
Repeat this 10 times quickly (ON, OFF, ON, OFF, etc)

Many alarm systems this is at least one way to reset or over-ride the alarm.

Flashing lights on security system for 1993 ford escort wagon


usualy there is a switch on the driver and passener side, try disarming by unlocking drivers door with the key to disarm the factory alarm, or the passenger door. this should turn off the alarm if it is not aftermarket. the factory alarm will arm any time the door is locked by key or power door lock. good luck

My car alarm keeps going off, I made sure all the doors are shut properly and all the windows are closed. What else can I do to make it stop? '99 ford escort


Depends. If it is an aftermarket alarm that didn't come with the car those are easily removed by undoing the wiring for the alarm box usually underneath the steering column. If you're not comfortable with wiring issues, a local shop should be able to do it for around 70 dollars, one hour labor. Factory alarms are different. There are door switches that regularly go bad for your car that can usually be determined if when all your doors are closed the dome light stays on or comes on. There should also be an indicator on the instrument cluster. Usually it's the driver's door(most used) that goes bad. If this malfunctions while the vehicle alarm has been set the antitheft system will think someone opened the door without unlocking it. Replacing these switches usually require removal of the door latch on the inside of the door panel. Sometimes spraying lubricant through the keyhole will help these switches work... for a while. And if all else fails, you can always unplug the horn... Good luck!

Ford Escort Alarm - Annoying Problem!


it seems that the contact circuit in the driverside door is the problem, it's obviously not the alarm itself others wise the same thing would occure on the passengerside. you have to remove the door panel on the driverside and inspect the wires in that circuit for corrosion which would cause no current to pass between the by pass switch the arms or disarms the alarm. please rate this
