Question about 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII
There is an alarm arm/disarm switch in the key cylinder for the trunk and both doors. Just put the key in and turn it to UNLOCK and the alarm should disarm. As far as the reason for it going off...Check the pin switch for the hood. This switch is located along the right front fender (hood open) and is on a very thin metal bracket that is easy to bend when working under the car. Usually the bracket gets bent just far enough that it still allows the alarm to arm, but as it gets cold in the night, the bracket deforms a SLIGHT bit more and tells the alarm that the hood has been opened. Just grasp the switch and bracket and slowly bend it up to level again and the alarm should be OK. You may have to disconnect the battery and leave it disconnected for 15 minutes or more and then hook it back up and reprogram the key fobs.
