2000 s430 long pimping sound when I open the trunk then battery dies

Hi all,
I have a 2000 s430, lately when I open the trunk after the the car has been sitting there for a long time (about 8hrs plus). I hear a long beep from the drunk. I do not know where it is really coming from in the trunk but after that when I try to start the car the battery is dead. Does anyone know what this could be?

I do not know what that sound is.
However, you should get your Battery tested.
I suspect your Battery is below Factory strength needed to operate the car.


I had similar problem. The car started, but dang the Battery was weak.
It did pass muster, but barely.

I replaced it with a new Battery and I have not had any problems since.

Good Luck in finding the problem.

Stop carrying pimps in your trunk, that should help.
