Disabling alarm Focus Titanium 2013


Recommended Posts


my new Focus's alarm keeps going off. We're also getting a sign about the bonnet being open so perhaps that is the problem. Is there anyway of disabling the alarm until we can get this sorted? I don't want our neighbours to hate us. NB, it's a 2013 car, not 2016. Not sure why it says that.

Sounds like the bonnet sensor is malfunctioning.

Try blasting around the lock mechanism with WD40.

Other option is to splice the sensor wires together to bypass the switch but on a 2016 car should not be necessary.

Your dealer would also be unlikely to touch the problem if you alter the wiring yourself.

I also saw this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stnVta2ip9g - which suggests a lot of cars have a button inside the car that you press for 3-5 seconds and that disables the alarm. Is that true of the Focus? I couldn't see one around the bonnet release.
