Disabling alarm - 1992 500e

My alarm system is misbehaving. When I unlock the car and attempt to start the car, the alarm engages. However, the car does start. So I turn the ignition off, get out, lock and unlock the doors again until this doesn't happen anymore.

I have checked the archives and understand that there is a sensor in the lock mechanism that is prone to failure. My eventual plan is to put an after-market alarm/keyless entry system in.

QUESTION - is there an easy way to just disable the factory alarm system without losing the central locking capability? I see two fuses that control the central alarm system, but assume that taking these out will also kill the central locking.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

On my 90 300E, the alarm module is beneath the passenger's feet. Remove carpeting and look there.

I do not have access to my CD ROMS but the alarm module is small compared to the other modules I found there. It has two connectors that plug into it. I removed both while repairing my radio.

Do a search on 124 wireless alarm. You may find another solution.

Good luck,

Yup - I found it and disconnected the two cables. Now, I have to find a good aftermarket keyless/alarm solution and someone local who can do the installation. I'm in Las Vegas.

Hi,

Great.

I found the link about the keyless alarm:

I did it! Keyless entry for your 124 made easy (and less than $100)!

Good luck,

Hi,

Most fuses have more than one function assosciated with it. Been there, as they say.
