    Hi guys

    I hope that you can help me.

    My 2003 e320 cdi started chirping the alarm then stopped.

    I now cant get the central locking to work or to lock and un lock the car with fob.

    I have looked all over the forum and cant find anything.

    Great site by the way.

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Hello sir,,,, do check fuse 8 in the front fuse box,,, if the alarm siren has gone short circuit, you can unplug it for now and replace the fuse

    Yes sir

    It just seems that no power to central locking and alarm.

    The thing that worries me is that the immobizer kicks in and then the car is dead.
