#244407 2009/58 Zetec S - Alarm Keeps Going Off!

Posted by fletchie on 17 March 2013 - 01:52 PM

Sprayed bonnet catch with WD40, went quiet for a couple of weeks but its back.

Car alarm goes off approx 15 minutes after I've locked it and dash shows bonnet open warning permanently.

I rang ford who told me they couldn't do it on a Saturday as they can't do diagnostics at the weekend. Unfortunately for me, I work away during the week in various places and only home at the weekend.

I know I'm going to have to get this fixed, any idea how much this will cost if it is a faulty switch?

Thanks to Nath we can safely say this can be done provided you have the hardware and someone who can be bothered to use IDS rather than fobbing you off with crap like 'it can only be done from factory'

Oh and my personal highlight.... SPOTIFY WORKS OVER STREAMING inc track display!!! Oh I'm happy. Now to find a cheap module :)

This is for anyone who commented or took an interest in that mammouth 'USB can it be done' thread. Get ringing scrappies and talk to nath.

I'll second the above - Nath did mine as well and it works a treat. I'm over the moon with it. :D
