Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 Lincoln Cont. and when we locked in hot weather, in the open sun, the
alarm will sound when the interior get too hot. When left unlocked we do not have the
problem.  When the alarm sounds and the doors are unlocked, the doors not opened, the
alarm will stop and not restart. what is the issue and how can I correct it?

Park it in the shade? Sadly there is no real fix for problems like this apart from disabling the alarm entirely. The hot interior causes warm airflow along sensors where the alarm doesn't expect it which activates the alarm. Unlocking the car will reset and deactivate the alarm.
