02 C240 - Anti-Theft Not Working, Needs Activation??

I just bought a used 2002 C240 and about a week after purchase I realized that my panic button doesn't work. I looked into it and I can't solve this problem. I've searched this site looking for answers and there are a couple suggestions. Either A) my car has no anti-theft B) it needs to be activated through a Mercedes Benz dealership C) there is a fuse missing (I have no idea what fuse deals with the alarm) or D) just the horn is disabled with the alarm.

I tried everything including pulling down the window, locking the car, and reopening from the inside. I've looked at the fuses but have no idea which ones which.

Before going to the dealership and being rudely ignored again by the service department, I was hoping someone here would be able to help me out a little.
