    Hi New to site New to Mercedes too. I have bought a CLK convertable with a few problems but lately the boot warning light keeps flashing whilst driving and for some reason the alarm seem to activate a short while after locking.

    Can any one help ??

    What state is the battery in? I'm just wondering if these are the kind of electrical gremlins you see when there's a problem in that area.

    Not Sure on that one I will have to check it with a meter but there seems to be plenty of life in it . I removed the Siren today as I read threads that the batteries in this can cause problems ( and to stop annoying the Neighbours )
    The boot light came on again after a while!
    Is the plunger with the brass wheel to the right of the lock anything to do with it .. ??

    Turn on the ignition, then remove the key and unlock the boot with the boot open button on the remote.

    Is the inside boot light going out when you shut the boot?

    Is that when you press the plunger in with your finger or when you slam the boot shut?

    Hi Again
    Found that the plunger is actually an actuator it fires when you pop the boot with the remote or button and then seems to be sucked back in .
    Also checked wiring in rubber tube between body and boot lid found a few bits of tape over crushed cables and insulation damage , Have cut and soldered all of these. Just need to take it foe a run later and see if that was the problem??
