Car dash flashing and bell dinging when car is off

So i was going to do my driving test and my car failed me at the inspection.
What was happening was when the car is off i have this blue led on top of my dash that flashes and when i open my door my hazards start to flash and the bell dings in sequences of 2 like dingding.........dingding... and as its dinging my dash lights go from green to white the only way i was able to make the hazards stop flashing was to turn my headlights on while the car is powered on.
has anyone else had this problem and if so what have you done to remedy it?

sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm installed and it seems to be arming itself so when you open the door it triggers the park lights which in turn flash the dash lights, green-lights on, white-lights off. do you have a factory ford keyless remote or something different? the bell dinging is reminding you to turn the lights off.


Lots of bolt on goodies...

I know the dinging is telling me about the lights but the problem is i dont have the lights on ive looked around and it seems like it may be a sjb getting wet and i have the stock alarm system in my car but when the dinging goes off its sequential in groups of 2 as well as the lights on the dash flashing normally it just dings in sequence of one every half second this situation its 2 every 1 second

the blue led on your dash is not stock. its an aftermarket alarm that's installed. it may not be a full alarm but something is installed. I know you have your lights off. the alarm is going off and blinking the park lights, that's why your hearing the ding, ding with the car off. the car thinks you left the lights on. when the lights are on the car dings, lights off it stops etc. a horn or siren should be going off but may have been removed. look under the dash for a box and odd wiring, youll know it when you see it. also look for a hood pin/switch in the engine bay.

Thanks! I found a python 702 alarm box under my dash and disconnected it from the wires and everythings working fine now.
Now i just have to get rid of the other wires and package it up and maybe sell it to someone who needs one
