I am afraid me and my ML270 are going to have to part company soon. It is getting to the point where it gets one fault after another. The latest fault is a loud beeping sound once I turn the ignition on. This may be connected with the intermittent parking brake light which will come on even though I have stopped using the brake. Somewhere on here I read about turning the steering wheel from full lock to full lock the other way,what does that fix? Please help because the alarm aggravates my wife who then aggravates me!!!

Probably the siren packed up,,, you can unplug it and leave it off or replace it circa £80

Hi,
Check the brake fluid level, IIRC the parking brake light also doubles as a brake fluid level warning light, if the brake fluid is on the cusp of tripping the level switch putting your foot on the foot brake, or going round a bend could put it on.

Thank you for that idea. I don't think I made myself clear in my original post,it is not the anti theft alarm which is going off it is a loud "beep beep beep" which happens when I turn the ignition on. I have had it up to my ears with this car,used to think it was the bees knees now think of it as overengineered junk.

I've been having alarm problems as well since I bought it plus other problems but its going sat as I can't be asked with it
Battery £120
Siren £87 odd
Fitting £120 ish
To still get problems
I'm glad the car is going sat from the short ownership I don't think I would ever buy one again after this
