Is there a red light on the dash flashing when the horn is going off?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No red lights nothing flashing or lite up just horn emergency lights and head lights flashing
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

Try programing the remote even with the horn going off. Cycle the key on and off 10 times ending in the on position and the door locks should cycle. Then press any button on the remote. The door locks should cycle when the remote is programed. Then try turning the horn off with the remote.

Last resort. Unplug the GEM module which is mounted under the center of the dash behind the trim panel to the right of he gas pedal. Unplug the GEM and reconnect the battery and then plug the GEM back in. Below are instructions for unplugging the GEM.

Do you have an added on alarm system on top of the keyless entry system?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No i dont
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

The GEM module controls the horn and antitheft for your 2001 Escape. Disconnecting the battery or unplugging the GEM should stop the horn from going off. There may be an issue with the GEMN module but it should be properly tested for trouble codes to make sure before replacing any parts.

take it to dealer for repairs
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 2 years ago

An independent shop can do this also. You do not need to take it to a dealership. We tried all the options for resetting the alarm to no avail.

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.

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.
