Ford Puma up for time, lots of work done upon it to get it…

Customer Question
Ford Puma laid up...

Ford Puma laid up for long time, lots of work done upon it to get it back to pristine condition. Charged battery up on the car, started up and the alarm goes off all the time. Answers??

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

Thanks it worked-I am ashamed - I work on Jags-I should know better -what do I owe you?

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

2000

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

No I locked and unlocked the drivers door with the key and it has normalised and cured problem

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

No thanks for all
