Headlight reminder chime not working
I go to start my SLK230 yesterday moring and found out the battery was dead. Turns out I left the headlights on overnight. After I jumped the battery, I found out that the headlight on reminder no longer chimes when door is open. I opened the fuse box under the hood and checked all fuses with a tester, all fuses were fine. I also checked the fuse box inside the car and manually pulled those fuses. All seemed OK. Sounds like it is not a fuse problem? What could cause this? I forgot to turn off my headlights again today (due to no chime) and killed the battery a second time. Don't want to make it 3 times a charm......I am not sure if it is the same chime, but when you turn on the ignition, the car chimes 14 times (reminder for seatbelt). That chime works, again not sure if same chime as headlights on that doesn't work.
To add, when I jumped the battery the first time, when the car finally started 1) The clock reset back to 12:00 2) Radio prompted me for code.
The same as if the negative terminal were disconnected. Is the chime function something that is programmable that lets you turn it on or off and it reset itself to off mode?????
