Question about 1998 Ford Escort
When locking the doors with the FOB, hitting the lock button twice used to have a quick beep of the horn. Now, the horn blows until I push the horn actuator on the steering wheel, which will stop it. Thoughts?

try testing or replaceing the drivers door lock actuator, reprogram ur key fobs and try unlocking and locking ur doors. as far as the lights and reminder,....it sounds like a seperate problem. but try the door actuator first (drivers side always act up and cause every other actuator to act up... like a bad kid that gets the rukkus started and ruins things for everyone..

Disconnect the battery for a minute or two. This clears the computer, and for some reason fixes the problem. I have had the same problem on and off for the last two years I have owned the car. I took it to the dealership at first, then figured that it might be something simpler. I just had the problem again today after accidentally setting off the alarm, and the above fix worked. Lost my radio presets though.

This is probably caused by:
a loose door switch, or
a loose connection to a door switch, or
a defective (dirty / corroded) door switch.
There is a false signal being sent that a door is open / ajar.
