my car is siting in the driveway and the alarm sounds, i use the keyfab and it stops. then i notice the tow away button red light is on solid. then about 10 min later the alarm sounds again? i cant turn off the solid red light on the tow away button and alarm keeps going off every 10min. so i pull the batterycable and call it a night any ideas what why

If it was an R171, I'd say check the tow sensor in the rear electronics panel. I'm assuming the R170 has one as well, but don't know enough about it to tell you where it is..
you thinking pse but do this first. under the front engine cowl is the siren. it has a sep. battery. check it and replace if bad. this will set the alarm off when the battery goes bad
will check it but what about the tow alarm light lit solid red and wont go out could the battery also cause this?

so i opened the trunk and found the PSE pulled it from that foam cover and found a few drops of water not sure where it came from. left it out of the foam and just sitting in the trunk till i make sure its dry.
i tried to get to the alarm horn but cant get windshied wipers off??? screw cam off but they dont budge??? i assume you need to take them off to get to the horn to replace battery? gave up on that till get further info put it all together again except for the pse just sitting in trunk for now.
hook up car battery again after removing it to shut up the alarm and now the tow alarm red solid light is off but now i am getting a ESP/BAS error light in the dash and esp bypass wont do anything
also my stock radio was asking me for a code and i got car used and have no idea what code is? so i entered 1111 and now it just says wait
so like i said i just opened a can of worms think its time to take it in to mechanic not sure what else i can screw up
you will need a tool to properly remove the wipers. no big deal. any auto parts house
bas/esp lite . eazy peazy! turn the steering wheel lock to lock left then right then back to center. lite goes out.
radio code. bigger problem. if you dont have the code you have to go to the dealer with the vin to get it. the wait signal will go out after 20 mins. then enter the proper code and set it.
if you have the owners manual and case there should be a card in the face of the booklet holder (like a credit card) with the radio code. its a 5 digit code
you may need to go for a drive to reset the tow alarm. just a thought
Went to Keagan auto parts to look for a wiper blade remover and they have no idea what one is,and I'm not sure what tool to remove wipers to replace battery in horn?
