Question about 1999 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
First of all there is an electrical fault in your car. You will now need to recharge your battery to start again. After recharging check with a multimeter for the battery voltage across and to be incresing to about 16 volts when your engine is powered to high rpm. If ok disconnect battery and attach an ammeter to test for the drain current. there will be a residual drain for the clock, the audio set and the remote.But if this exceeds then isolate the faulty circuit by disconnecting the fuse one by one to confirm. Repair or replace the unit that is draining the most current. Now the horn relay also needs to checked or replaced. Also see if any rodents have damged the wiring to trigger off the horn. Iam sure this must help you out but do the test with cautious attention. Hope my advice helps. Good day

According to the Mercedes forum, you are not alone, the alarm system goes off at random, it has something to do with the tow button, disabling the horn doesn't stop the alarm and the lights keep flashing. But the horn is quieted. I would trash the alarm system, or pay the dealer to mess with it, which is usually an expensive joke. You have insurance on the car, let them steal it. I stopped worrying about my bike, I leave the key in it. Nobody touches it. Before I couldn't leave site of it. Now, I don't care. Let them have it, I'll get a new one, Anyway, check out mercedes forum.
