Car Question: Continuous chirping/alarm going off
My sister left her car in my driveway (older 2002 Mercedes). The key fob quit working and I can't crank it. I replaced the batteries in the fob and it still won't crank/open/lock doors. So I determined it may be the fuse. About 20 minutes ago, it started chirping continuously. I disconnected the battery but it's still going off. Pulled the fuses, nothing. Any ideas before I take a baseball bat to it?

This happened to me. That chirping will stop eventually, possibly combined with the alarm going off for a bit, once the charge stored in the ?capacitor? runs out.

I have no idea what that electronic thing a ma jiggy is that stores energy and discharges after you cut power but yeah that thing.

FWIW, this was on a Volvo but same scenario as in OP.

Post again after you have the vehicle completely disassembled.

This usually indicates a GPS system independent of the car. My hunch is she is cheating and the SO has added a GPS to track her dirty ways. Do you know why your sister is fricking someone else?

I just read this on a Merc forum so hope this is the case.

Just cut all the wires. And slashed the tires just in case. Still chirping.

In my past experience with electrical problems in a vehicle, it never ends. Burn it.

Ground out the actual vehicle battery.

Disconnect negative terminal for about 3 minutes then reconnect.

That will reset everything electrical on the vehicle.

Alarm continuously chirping could mean that the battery is going dead. I'm not sure of the model but some German cars around that time, and now too, have a starting battery under the hood and then a secondary battery, usually in the trunk. If you've disconnected the battery under the hood, try looking around the car for a second battery. Could even be under one of the seats. Good luck.

She got a new battery a couple of months ago so it should be fine. The only battery I could find was in the trunk. I haven't found a secondary battery yet.

She looks like a former first lady. Like one of the early ones. Like that slut Dolly Madison possibly.

Curious, did you follow the procedures to start the car with a dead key fob? On mine, you touch the dead key fob to the start button then press start within 2 seconds. Or something like that.

I'm not familiar w/ Mercedes but from what I've read on various Merc forums, you can't start this Yr/Model with a dead key fob. It's an older model so it doesn't have the start button. I placed the key in the ignition and it won't turn. The alarm finally went off after 2.5 hours. It may be the infared on the fob so I'll try a new fob and see if that works.
