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.|

Car alarm radomly went off and then hood open came on half way to work..

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?

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.

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..|

|lilfoci||My hood light never flashed, but after being in the shop 4 times for the alarm they finally decided to do something so the replaced a hood latch or something like that and there were so confadent that it would fix it! So the next day my alarm went off 2 times, and continues to go off randomly! So as far as my situation no things havent been resolved. Have yours? I sure hope so! 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!!|
