Customer Question
Thank You! I have...

Thank You! I have a 2000 F350 super duty. I dont use the remote locks or the alarm. However i have replaced both batteries and now the lights flash. Ive disconnected the speaker, But how can i completely disconnect?

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Nope. Just need to figure out how to Turn the alarm system off.

Mechanic's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $28) to post your type of question to Ford Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Yes.

I don't see a way without knocking out power to something important. I'll just opt out and see if another expert can help.

Hi. A different expert here. Do you know if this is an aftermarket alarm? Can you post a picture of the remote to the chat?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
