Factory alarms are not sensitive to movement. They do go off from defective door ajar switches, any door can trigger the fault.

Car alarm goes off randomly


I had a similar problem. The Antitheft reacts to voltage changes and views fluctuation as a theft attempt. My Lincoln did the same thing when it was 3 weeks old. I even sat in the Parking lot one night to see if someone was messing with my car. Turns out the battery was shortening out.

My ford mondeo lx petrol 98' alarm goes off, sometimes more than once i have to keep going to the parking lot to open and close the door only for the alarm to stop but after some time it goes off again.


Your problem is most likely the central locking / alram switch fitted aroun the door lock inside the door void. Try using the passenger door to lock / unlock. If this stops the alarm triggering then you need to replace the switch behind the lock in the drivers door.

Have a 1998 lincoln continental that has factory alarm. but i dont have a keypad. i would like 2 disarm it, it goes off for no reason.


if its an aftermarket alarm, which im sure it is, find the brain to the aftermarket alarm and unhook it. trace the brain back from the car alarm siren hardware. it shoud b mounted somewhere under the hood. theres not a lot of available space in the engine compartment. so you should easily find the siren hardware. trace the wiring back to the brain and disconnect it. it cant be factory alarm. factory alarm only goes off when u dont use keyless remote or key to unlock a locked door or trunk. factory alarm blows horn and blinks parking lights

Car alarm


try parking in the shade. if that doesnt change it then it is your tamper sensor, i understand that you think there is no movement, but that doesnt mean that electrically there arent slight variations in power. try to lower its sensitivity if the shade thing doesnt work out.

Alarm Malfunctioning - 2004 Sable


Have your battery checked for shorts. Mine was defective on a new Lincoln. Same problem. Even sat in it at 18 degrees one night to appease neighbors whom my alarm woke up.
Check connections at every possible point if the battery tests good.
Get up 30 minutes before alarm usually goes off and see if neighbor has loud car or slams his car door. Motion sensors can set it off too.
