Hi Ken,

Have either of these things happened again since your last post? I recommend heading to your dealer to talk with them about it. Once you do, please keep me in the loop. I'll see how to best assist.

MEJY1988 Make sure the bracket for the hood switch is not bent or out of adjustment. It is not an uncommon problem for them to get out of whack due to the hood getting shut to hard or from heavy use.

Focus alarms going off

My car alarm and hood alarm has started going off randomly a couple weeks ago as well. Anyone find a fix for this?

GrafixMatt I've been having a similar issue with my 2012 Focus SEL, the alarm is very sensitive and goes off during thunder storms, every time the thunder clap.

iminhell I'd think it shouldn't be that hard to probe the hood latch for resistance. Presumably there is a range at which the BCM turns the hood open lamp off, and that should be the same position the alarm for the hood sets. Seems that the values don't match and that would be causing the alarm to turn on.

Or it could be the connection itself. Pinched wiring and intermittent connection.
Back probing it should be easy enough.

lilfoci Thank You Crystal, my car is still in the shop so when i get it back i will pm you my info! Im upset that i have had to take my brand new car to the dealer 12times and i have made payments on the car and i havent even had it in my possesion (chevy paid a payment on my cousions car because they felt they had it to long, 2 weeks to fix her headliner) no ford has never once done that for me and my car sat in the shop for over a month, im upset at how ford is handling my situation, i am upset that i have to continue to put gas in rental cars before i bring them back(thats more out of pocket money on me)im upset at hoe i have to spend my only day off going to ford. I understand that any brand car i buy i risk getting a lemon , but i beleve the other vehical makes would handle my situation a lot better!! its taken them forever to paint my car because ford didnt want to warrenty my paint job that was there falt. Am i gunna have to deal with this for every little thing?...ugh!! Such a shame causei come from a long line of ford promoters..

Hi lilfoci,

My offer to assist still stands; reach out to me via PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name so I can look into your case.

Most recently my car was in the shop for 3 weeks(boy i love making a car payment for a car i often dont have in my possesion) to be repainted because the didnt prep my car right so its rusting under the clear coat(that was another long drug out arument with ford getting them to replace it under warrenty)..again best of luck to everyone! And please let me no how u guys are doing i would sure love some insite, im so over this car and sooo over ford and the crappy, rude and unaceptable customer service!!
