sometimes it is due to a weak battery.

looking for a diagram for 1999 Mercury Mountaineer. Need to take the fuse out for the seatbelt alarm, it will not shut off.

The Mercury Mountaineer is a classy SUV. Some models have been known to have faulty alarms that either go off randomly or fail to go off when they should.

my alarm goes off at random times. i had the alarm module changed for $700 and it still goes off. come home from work at 4 and it goes off at 10. before the alarm module was changed it went off at 12, 2 and 4 in the morning.

Test is for what? To see if it works? OR To see why it goes off for no apparent reason?

Check the door light switches. One could be going bad and triggering the alarm.

voltage drops on a weak battery can cause the alarm to trip. Whenever power is interrupted, even for a short time, the alarm will trigger. Sometimes not right away, but usually after the first drive after the power failure.

I've had that happen in my 2002 mountaineer. what I've found is that if you spray the door latches with wd40 it will clean off the sensors and the door ajar light should go out. but make sure all the doors are shut.

The most likely cause. The ultrasonic sensors have picked up air movement in the cars interior.

to reset the alarm system for a Mercury Sable when the alarm is causing the car not to start, place the key in the ignition. Turn the key only about halfway and leave it in this spot for 10 minutes before trying to start the car.

AnswerI found that you need to check all of the door sensors to make sure they aren't sending incorrect messages that the door is being opened after the alarm is set. From what i have found this has to do with the battery. If the battery is low the Alarm will start to go off what appears at random.

Does it happen only while the car is "off" or does it also happen while driving? If the alarm happens without any apparent reason, even while driving, you may want to check the anti-theft relay. If alarm happens while the car is off, it could be a problem with any of the various switches and sensors that sense alarm conditions.

a common yet missed/overlooked reason for the alarm to false is to look under the hood and you should find a mercury light attached to the under side of the hood. if this light is misadjusted or your parking on a steep hill that will cause the alarm to go off after the engine cools

If it is original equipment, contact the dealer. If it is add on, someone with electrical expertiece can cut the wire or pull the fuse.

Don't. many try to to do that to install aftermarket alarms but since that is part of ECU programming many have never ending problems as a result. Add on to it if you need more or add a lojack. If you need to reset, an auto locksmith can do it easily.

You can disarm your 1997 Mercury Cougar alarm system by removing the alarm system fuse. The alarm system fuse can be found in the fuse box.

It would depend on the alarm, a steady alarm indicates an engine over heat. If the engine alarm is a series of beeps, this would indicate an oil pump / supply failure.

To disable the factory alarm on a 2000 Mercury Villager, put the key in the ignition and turn it halfway. Let it stay in the spot for 10 minutes and start the car.
