My 2004 Ford Taurus, has a factory car alarm. I have noticed that when the outside air tempature goes below 40 degrees, the alarm will go off. I have to go outside turn the alarm off. It maybe another 30 or 45 minutes then it goes off again. What could be causing the problem. Is their away to turn the alarm system off completely? I know my neighbors are getting upset that my alarm keeps going off:(

Hello,

9 times out of 10 it is the drivers door door latch which needs to be replaced because the switch inside malfunctions causing the alarm to go off. You will need to remove the door panel to get to the latch to change it. Here is a guide that will give you an idea of what yo are in for when doing the job.

My car alarm randomly goes off in the middle of the night. It only seems to happen when the temp outside drops.
Any suggestions?

I need to know how to disarm anti-theft system. The light stays on, and I can't get fire to the fuel pump breaker switch.

Is it an after market system

if its and factory system
try to lock and unlock the door using key
