Help with slk230 98 Alarm issue

Hello,

Having a issue with alarm intermittently going off. Looked through some of the threads on this issue and have checked the PSE. PSE looks fine (no corrosion or wetness). The PSE is even in a plastic bag upside down. I'm sure this was done by the previous owner. I've noticed that the dome light will stay on sometime until I manually unlock all the doors. I also noticed that pressing the roof open/close switch to the close position helps. When I press the switch to close I hear the motor for a second as if the roof wasn't securely closed. My main concern is how to check the alarm siren battery on this model (1998 slk230) and if necessary turn the audible off to keep from disturbing neighbors? At least until I can fix the issue.

Thanks,
Troy

I see that you posted the issue on the other BW forum-so I'll ignore the search results from that but have you seen this?

Took the car to a indy shop and they determined that the problem was due to the glovebox triggering the alarm. They disconnected the connection and no more alarm issues.
