Hi All - new SLK owner in Wales.
Hope one of you can help me out, my SLK 280 R171 beeps randomly with the ignition on and off. It comes from the front right and also comes through the front right speaker if the stereo is powered on.. Have checked tyre pressures, seat belt alarm is different. Thought it happened going over a bump initially but its getting worse and happens stationary.
Any ideas would be much appreciated..

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and posting an intro! :)

Unfortunately, I can't help with the beeping issue - if you don't get a solution posted here (some suggestions already made above), then please feel free to post the question in the SLK R171 General Discussion section, as not everyone reads the New Intro section.

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there!

There is a summary post that I maintain for our UK meets here. Links to examples and pictures from last year's meets are available here. We're a friendly group, and always happy to welcome new members at any of our meets.

We're also plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map - Please let me know if you'd like to be added to the map. :tu:

Thank you
Dave

Hi All. Many thanks for the welcome and advice. :)
Mostly have seat belt done up before starting the engine, mobile phone around, but isn't connected to the car. Maybe it is an alarm battery if their is one as standard? It is getting worse, so could be a decaying battery... Very annoying in such a lovely car.

If it is by the driver's side of the cowl then it may be the anti-theft alarm battery getting low. Which one you have depends on your particular car since Mercedes used several. I an enclosing a .pdf from another group and refers to the R170. On some you can replace the battery pack.

Hi Padgett
Love the Orlando - where rust must be imported!! :) If you need a quote for rust from the wettest City in the UK!!
I think you are on the money with this one. Beep comes from the drivers (UK RHS) footwell and even the RHS door speaker as well if stereo switched on.
Thank you.

I guess you don't have any messages coming up in the dashboard (speedo area)?
You checked the tyres, so not the tyre sensors then?
Are you getting a service interval overdue message? That beeps, but doesn't carry on.

No messages and car recently serviced. Maybe it's a faulty tire sensor just intermittently failing, low alarm battery if there is one fitted. Thanks for all the info.
