I can't get the hazard lights for the alarm to turn off on…

Customer Question
I can't get the...

I can't get the hazard lights for the alarm to turn off on the car. I have tried putting the key in the ignition and starting it but that didn't work.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tried locking and unlocking the driver's side door using the key itself?

Yes that doesn't work

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

Montero 2006

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Montero yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have tried locking and unlocking from the driver's side, locking and unlocking with the key from the outside and tried locking and unlocking with the after market alarm key chain.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The passenger door was unlocked first from the inside (my son was in it) instead of unlocking it from the driver's side first.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Can I get the vin#?

Will the car start?

What brand alarm is on the vehicle?

Is the horn also honking and does the horn work?

The horn was also honking bit in trying to possibly get the flashers to stop blinking, I thought about pushing the Hazard lights. I depressed them again and they shut off.

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
