Hi All,

I have an 07 Focus 1.8TDCI Hatch, I will reserve my comment on the quality and performance. My problem is the alarm keeps on going off for no reason. I have checked all of the obvious clues doors closed, windows closed etc. There do not appear to be any interior sensors as indicated in the owners manual.

I have booked it in at the local dealership but judging from thier initial response, we may be in for a lot of screaming and shouting.

My neighbour has suggested that the alarm is going off because the car is parked on an incline at home.

Any clues?

before reading the last reply I was gunna mention the same thing, have you tried opening the bonnet and making sure the mechanism is definitly closed when the bonnets shut, it could be confuzing the car into thinking that somebody is trying to steal parts of the engine, as far as parking it on an incline goes.. personally i think thats rubbish. not an expert though.

have to agree does the dash show the door open symbol if not then its not a faulty door switch so likely its the bonnet or boot switch thats faulty

the performance is on par with most diesels the build quality isnt great but its better than its lower priced counterparts
