Wink Alarm problems

Hello everyone, new to this forum and was wondering if anybody could help me find an alarm problem with my wife's 2003 Taurus. We bought it new and haven't had any problems with it but this alarm crap. The alarm goes off randomly, normally around 2 or 3 am, I guess it just likes to wake us up. Anyway, I can't seem to find a bad sensor but it still goes off about every 2 to 3 weeks. If someone could tell me how to disable it that would be a life saver. I really don't care if it ever works again just as long as it keeps quiet and quits flashing it's lights. Any help would be much appreciated, maybe it'll catch itself on fire someday and then I really won't have to worry about it!

Re: Alarm problems

Look on the drivers side by the headlight under the hood. You will find a hood switch and the rubber plug it contacts when the hood is closed sometimes fails.

Re: Alarm problems

Thanks SHOZ123, I'll check that but I'd rather just do away with the whole alarm system. It may usually goes a couple of weeks or longer before it goes off and it always seems like it's between 2 and 3 in the morning. I'll check that switch with a meter but I'm sure it's going to show it's okay because it doesn't go off immediately and I would think if it was bad or way out of adjustment that it wouldn't take so long to go off. Anyway, I appreciate you taking the time to post. Thanks for your help.

Re: Alarm problems

That is the only problem I have had with my alarm system in 10 years. I just completely removed the sensor.

Re: Alarm problems

SHOZ123, That's a great idea, maybe I'll try that first before I buy a wiring diagram and start ripping into the harnesses...Thanks!
