SL 500: reason when I try to lock up my 2000 sl 500

Customer Question

For some reason when I try to lock up my 2000 sl 500 by using my remote, all it will do is activate my alarm. The doors will not lock and for some reason the radio antenna stays extended when radio and car is off. Can you tell me whats wrong?

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** #5 in the trunk powers the electric antenna and the central locking pump. Most likely that fuse is blown. Check and replace the fuse if needed and see if everything works. If it blows again either the central locking pump or the power antenna is most likely shorted out.
Let me know what you find out.
