The horn alarm on my 2005 Ford Escape keeps going off while I am at
work, probably 1-2 times a day. It also goes off at home if I leave
the car outside, but if I park in the garage it does not go off. It is
a standard factory proximity alarm, whatever usually comes with that
I took the car to the dealership. Of course the car sat there for 3
days and never went off, even though they left it outside and they are
near a loud airfield! They told me they could not fix it unless it
went off while in their possession. Otherwise they do not know which
is the faulty sensor.
I asked if they could disable the alarm, they said no thats not
I heard this is a common problem; in fact my in-laws had the same issue
and it was never resolved during their 2 year lease.
The car is a 2 year lease so I don't want to get a new alarm or
Do I have any other options?
