Hello,

Is there a code to make the car "Chirp" when I lock or unlock the car. I asked the "Service Advisor" (haha) at the MB dealership and he said no. I'm not sure that I believe him.

Any of you "Guru's" (Bazzle) out there know for sure that the "Service Advisor" is correct? Thanks in advance.

Ask your "Service Adviser" if he has ever heard of the "Netherlands Mode", it's in the computer of every SLK since the six cylinder was put in the car. The beep or chirp is volume adjustable as well, mine is set mid range.

Noise is Very Annoying to others

I find it incrediblly annoying when cars around me "honk" or make some kind of noise when the owner locks or unlocks. Its noise polluiton!! Why do you want to bother other people in the parking lot???

Mercedes does it right with the visual flashing...you can also hear the locks go into place if you are close by the car.

JMHO,
Pat

I had one dealership change the settings to Netherlands. The downside was that they could not figure out how to have the fog lights respond in the same manner they do in the US mode.

Sometimes(busy parking lot,etc.) if you turn your head to see if car locked it could spell trouble.
A slight "chirp" should not bother anyone.

My dealership in Hartford changed mine without me even asking on a visit. I like it. When I get out of the car and press the lock button, I get this sweet little chirp, it doesn't make much noise at all, in fact, its so quiet if your not really listening for it, you can miss it. My fog lights go on, my blinkers all flash three times. The fogs and marker lights stay on for 15 seconds after.

Interesting, I thought that the option only came when they built the V-6 models. I stand corrected...:)

The only way possible to make it chirp is to progam the SAM to do so. it also has to be an 05 or later model.
Not true. Mine is a 99 and it works on mine. In case anyone is wondering, here is the programming sequence:

SEL ATA - Anti Theft Alarm System
SEL (5) - Version Coding
SEL (4) - Acoustic Alarm Notification Via
SEL (1) - Alarm Siren
SEL (2) - Netherlands (Acoustic Lock Confirm)
SEL (6) - Stage 6 or your loudness preference

Would this work on the e430's as well ? and is this something the dealer will have to do or can this be done ourselves ?
thnx.
