2001 Ford Escape Four Wheel Drive Automatic
the alarm went off out of the blue. The remote control on my key change hasn't worked in months.I had to take some fuses out just to stop the noise. Now I have no turn signals or a horn. But it's better than the annoying horn and flashing lights can you help me
disconnect neg, batt cable for ten mins. While you have it disconeted replace the fuses. Lock your doors.
Now reconnect cable. Unlock passenger door with key. Unlock drivers door with key. This should reset the alarm system.
Good luck. Billymac

I have an Escape also, to shut off the alarm lock the driver door with the key and the door shut. This shuts it off, mine will go off if I am too fast opening the door after unlocking it.
I do not have a key FOB to activate or deactivate the alarm and I learned this real quick. The owners manual also covers this.
