Hello, first sorry for my English.
I'm the owner of a focus from spain, I want to share a new feature that I activated with ELM327 cable, I have not seen anything about it in the post.
I've activated the alarm as if it were standard with the program elmconfig> gem configuration> part 2 activate the tab "alarm system" and the two sub-tabs below.
Now just put a switch on the hood lock, at least mine leads to the same cable but has no switch.

Missing siren is located behind the right rear seat (left hand drive) in the area where the belt goes, there is a curb faston connector serves a standard car horn.

Just need to put the sensors inside ceiling. In my forum forofocus.com no people that has focus and activated in 2005, my focus in 2009 I have not been able to test yet. Activated on the same page Elmconfig> scaning inside
This serves to focus 2005> 2012 and Kuga
Regards and fantastic forum
Hi. I have a 2008 Focus and I already activated the alarm. I bought a Denso ND-012 siren on ebay which is the model that Ford uses and I just short-circuited the hood wiring. Has my car didn't have the switch inside the hood lock I just closed the circuit , which is what the switch do. So for the alarm the hood is always closed! No problem as the hood only opens with the key!
Now if you open the car from the inside the alarm will go of and the intermitent lights will flash fast! The only thing I am not sure is if you can add the motion sensors... I have a cousin with a 2010 Focus SW and it had alarm from factory but no motion sensors.The only things he had and that were missing on my car were the siren and the hood interruptor.
