Smile 2005 Mercedes 230 Kompressor Alarm goes off Sporatically

Alarm goes off by itself, intermittently

Car could be sitting a few hours or a few days no pattern to this problem. I've recently replaced battery and alternator. One day it went off five times in a matter of a few hours in my driveway. It's a sporadic thing, no rhyme or reason. Sometimes it won't happen for a week. Didn't know if anyone else encountered this and may have a remedy.

I have a 2004 C230 Kompressor and have a problem with the door locks. I checked the battery in the key and it is fine. Has anyone had this problem? Any suggestions other than going to MB ?

Does the horn sound or is this simply the emergency flashers working when this happens?

my 2004 C230 Kompressor has the same problem. I'm thinking disabling the alarm system completely. Just disconnect the power supply cable to the alarm.

A 10 year-old car is unlikely to be a target for car thieves. :-)
