Since it's been cold, the Alarm Will go off on my 2004

Customer Question
Since it's been cold...

Since it's been cold, the Alarm Will go off on my 2004 Sable. What can I do?

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

Yes but it still happens, mostly in the early hours. How can I stop it?

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

Nothing

THe alarm generally will go off if there is an issue with it thinking a door is ajar or the hood. Do you ever have any issues with the door ajar warning light coming on when the doors are all closed?

No, all my doors and hood are shut tight. This didn't start until it got cold. Çan I disconnect it?
Mercury Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Lincoln Mercury Senior Master replied 7 months ago

Ok then likely a door switch is not the issue. Just because the hood is closed doesnt mean the switch is not activating.

You can disconnect the hood switch and if that is what is causing the alarm to go off it should stop it. THat is where I would recommend starting.
