Started a couple of days ago. Alarm goes off repeatedly when car is locked. I took out the fuse for alarm and dome light, but the lights still flash.
I also have a red light on the button for disabling the alarm when towing!
Help!
I would not mind disabling the alarm completely if that is easier.

Car is 2000 SLK230 with 212K miles. Silver, automatic.
Thanks!
David

Good call!

cleaned the plugs and sockets on the outside of PSE, ended up with the following:
Alarm does not go off by itself - but, does not work as an alarm either!
Panic button still sets off alarm
dome light is still fine
doors are still fine
tow button light no longer lit when doors unlocked.
So, I can live without a working alarm, everything else is fine!
Thanks for the pointer.
David

haven't picked up mileage badge yet

Trying to avoid the dealership (plus it's an hour away).
But I did put TWO badges on my daily driver, a 1980 300SD diesel with 418K miles. I put on 200K of those, replaced the motor at 379,000 when a cylinder lost compression and the smoke eradicated all the mosquitos in my county.
