My alarm system has been going off for no explainable reason. Is there something I can do or look for? Or is this just a dealer thing.

It probably is the sensitivity level of your alarm system. it might be too sensitive that a cat rests underneath the car will make it go off.

hope it helps.

ps: but it's a dealer thing for sure.

If the battery is good then you have a defective door ajar switch, have the dealer keep the car until it can be confirmed that the horn is going off and it is the alarm system, they can scan it and see what the cause is.

2001 mercury sable alarm goes off for no reason

Most all alarm systems have various sensors for detecting such things as vibration, heat and or movement around your vehicle and so forth. If these sensors are set to sensitive and or are defective the alarm system will be more of a nuisance than a deterrent. Hope This Helps
If this is an OEM type of alarm you might want to contact your dealer for this information.
There are 2 sensors which you have to be aware of. One is under the hood and one is in the trunk. Disconnect the trunk sensor and check whether the car will function normal.

if you do not want to go back to the dealer then take it to an alarm shop which does private installations on cars and trucks because most of the time when they install after market alarms they bypass them or just pull out the factory alarm altogether.

It is a fault with the alarm system, or with the alarm remote. check the battery in the remote (key). If remote is ok, you will have to disconnect alarm to start your car normally. Go to a car electrician , or to a car alarm dealer, or to Ford if the alarm is the original one to fix it or replace the alarm.
