C220: my 1996..alarm..interior mirror and on door handle flash..locks

This answer was rated:

I have a problem with my 1996 W202 C220. When i activate the alarm both green and red lights on interior mirror and on door handle flash for 30seconds then go out. The car locks ok.

eurotec :

Hi, does the car start and run?

eurotec :

If the car runs and the lights are flashing together it means that the battery in the remote control needs to be replaced.

Customer:

The car starts and runs fine but if u park and want to lock the car with the remote the car locks and the green and red light flashes for 30 seconds.

eurotec :

Ok, that sounds like the batteries in the remote may be weak.

Customer:

U are correct i checked with the spare remote and it works fine. Thanks u know ur stuff.

eurotec :

You're quite welcome
