My father in law has just bought a 06 focus 1.8tdci ghia focus estate

 

he's got a dog and sometimes leaves him in the car to nip into shops etc, 

 

he's having problems with the alarm going off with the dog inside, how can he get it to to stop going off when he leaves the dog in the car?

 

cheers

at a guess from experience with other cars if you use the key to lock the car instead of the fob it wont activate the alarm, may be different in a focus but that's how it has worked in other cars I have used.

or if that doesn't work I guess you could deactivate interior scanning using elmconfig or just unplug the scanners?

If you only single lock the car (one press on the fob) the alarm won't arm.
The alarm only comes on with double lock (when the indicators flash).
If the car has interior motion sensors then there should be a scan deactivation button near the driver side door catch.
