Thought they had all been replaced by now!! Obviously not, also there were issues with the ultasonics that gave that message. Are there any other faults with your car, like wipers working when there switched off?

Good morning gents, update to above problem.

 I intended to leave the above problem till weather improved however 'service Oil' flashed up last week and I booked car in for 1st Feb at local garage, service manager called me to say tell me that mechanic has found problem with battery ( i had suspected this as i noticed drop in battery power in very cold weather) I told them to go ahead with service and to change battery. Don't worry i'm coming to the point. Well when I collected the car I noticed that 'Alarm system etc' no longer flagged up and system is working a treat. So problem with above warning was due to knackered battery.

Thanks for advice.

Andrew

Just had a warning light on the dash :

Alarm system service req.

This is the code from diagnostic machine :

B1D17 Bus circuit. 

There are 2 things  to trigger this fault:

the interior sensor inside the cabin near dome light or the  alarm/siren box. Ford place this unit and the main Ecu on the Mondeo underneath the passenger's wheel arch ,the most ridiculous spot to place these fragile electrical units .

Because of the location these units are prone to rust and water ingress. 

I am not sure if you can replace the battery inside.

Anyway quickly removed the wheel plastic arch revealing the siren/alarm on top and got a replacement unit ,and placed the siren inside the engine bay .

 

Extremely easy ,got the wire through the engine bay .The wire should come out  behind the battery tray .So it's easy way to remove the battery tray as well.

Placed the alarm/siren between the battery and air filter box in one of battery's bolt fitment . The wire it's long enough for this job.

So l don't need to change this unit ever again.

I wish to remove the Main Ecu from wheel arch as well. 

This is the Ford part number for the siren/alarm

:6g9n-19g229-ak

cheers

Update to my previous repairs.

Bought a second hand back siren/alarm ,but measuring only 2v.

So the results: opened the old unit which was very tough in robust cases.

Inside it's a NiMH

2.4v 550mAh battery which you can replace .

It cost only £10 compared to £205 to the new ones from Ford dealer.

You only need the new battery NOT the whole unit ,providing that's yours it wasn't through water ingress .

@ART2309

This is brilliant and EXACTLY what I wish to do with my existing Mondeo Mk4 siren unit.  However, before I remove it from the car, would you please go into a little more detail about how you got into the siren unit, as you said it was "robust".  Is this straightforward, or is there some butchery involved?  If so, what does this entail?
