Anti-theft alarm - location, removal and refitting

Note: The alarm system has a self-diagnosis function, which allows a Ford dealer to carry out fault diagnosis, using suitable specialist equipment. In the event of a problem with the alarm system, it is advisable not to tamper with the components until appropriate fault diagnosis has been carried out.
