I have a Ford S-Max '08 and the rear windscreen is broken.

Customer Question

I have a Ford S-Max '08 and the r
ear windscreen is broken. WE have taped it up but the alarm keeps going off. How do I lock the car without setting the alarm?
JA: A blaring car alarm can be frustrating and (for you and your neighbors.) The mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: I thought I had explained it clearly enough. How do I lock the car without setting the alarm?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes!
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: Locking it with the keys instead of with the fob, it still sets the alarm.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Ford Mechanic should know about your Ford?
Customer: It's an '08 S-Max.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
