Just got an 02 Escape(today ) with a factory remote start and alarm. It's been in my driveway all day and all of a sudden the alarm started to go off . I used the remote and unlocked the doors to turn it off. Locked them again via the remote and 1 minute later the alarm went off again. Story repeats 3 more times. Now I left it unlocked for an hour and locked it again with the remote and all is fine... for now. I'm afraid to keep it locked in case it goes off again when I'm not home and it sits in my driveway.
Any idea of the problem or how to fix? Any way to just disable the alarm forever?
