Exclamation 1997 E420 Alarm wont stop going off

Hi I am living in Texas and I have recently bought a 1997 E420 Mercedes Benz and well lately if my radio/alarm fuse is in my alarm will go off after stopping the car or if the car is just sitting there. It wont stop and its very irritating. I have not been able to listen to my radio for about 3 months cause I do not know what is wrong with it. I am a college student so most of my money is going to the college and i dont have time to drive to find a mercedez dealership. Where I live for now the closest is 2 and over hours away. I was wondering if anyone could help.
Noone is by the alarm but it just goes off. Putting gas in the car it went off. Parking the car to head to a party it goes off. I dont understand and I changed the battery inside the key hoping that was the problem but no luck

If you can't get to a dealer, find a local independent Benz shop that can pull diagnostic codes on your car.

This reminds me of the time i was waiting for my car to be serviced one early morning at a benz dealer, when this E class comes screeching in with the alarm blazing!! The driver (still in his jammies) jumps out and runs inside to the service counter. This guy looked like he had a really rough night, and I had a good laugh. Too bad I did not have a video camera with me -- could have made top final on Americas Funniest Videos.

Head over to the W210 forum (the MB designation for your car) that can be found in the sedans section, scroll down until you see it. Then either search that forum or post your question there. Good luck and welcome to BW.
