Low battery + alarm going off

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a 2006 is220d with a low Battery. I've had it jump started one but now it's drained so that I can't use the keyfob to unlock the vehicle. 

The problem is that the alarm still works and I can't switch it off. 

If I order a new Battery what's the best way of dealing with this situation without damaging anything, going deaf or having a constant alarm going off.

Thank you!

James

Disconnect the Battery, even take it out if you want to.

Does the alarm have it's own back-up Battery?

Hi NemesisUK,

Yes......I've just found out. When I disconnect the Battery there is a lower volume alarm coming from the rear.
There must be a back up? in the rear?
Guess what? The fob doesn't work so I can't open the boot(!)

Any clues?

I'm ordering a new Battery tonight but it would be nice to work on the car without going deaf.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
