Same problem with an '89 420 SEL. If I open the trunk after I park, the alarm comes on about ten minutes after I lock the car. If I lock the car froom the trunk, does the same thing. I replaced the driver's door handle a year ago thinking the switch in there was bad, $330, not available aftermarket, didn't help. Now, I just restart the car after the trunk is opened and make sure the car is locked from the door. To shut off the alarm, unlock the trunk with the key. Do you sometimes not get the rest of the doors unlocked from the inside when you pull the doorhandle? Mine's doing that, too, and I think it's related.
