Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My ford exploers alarm keeps going off when
doors locked. When left unlocked the lights keep
going on and off. Says it's a bad back latch. The
back latch has been replaced but the alarm still
keeps going off.there isn't any alarms saying door
ajar or any signs that something is left open.

Yes, it's at dealer shop now. They are having a hard time figuring out why it keeps going off even when latch is replaced.

Keep them working on it until it is fixed. Don't take any BS excuses.

Thank you. I have informed the dealer. I will update when I know the resolution.

The solution for me was the following. My issue occurred after the dealer performed a recall for carbon monoxide. Part of the recall was to install 2 aluminum covers over some openings in the rear bumper. Once the aluminum covers were removed the problem ceased to exist. I believe they were interfering with the Kick Sensor.

Has this been fixed for anyone? I am having issue now, latch has already been replaced..Car is at Dealer as they are waiting for it to happen again

The dealer removed the aluminum covers as stated above and the problem has not reappeared.

Did removing aluminum covers create an issue then again for the carbon monoxide issue?
