Battery went dead had to jump start, now cd player wont work on 2006 mercedes

It should be in the manual supplied with the car. If not call mercedes and give them your vin, reg private detail etc and if you get a nice person,problem will be solved. It happen to me, but not a merc that you gladly own. I'm n battery not sure about this advice but a merc uses a high voltage and you may need a new battery.

The only way without removing the radio and paying for code search is to go to your Merc dealership with the Log Book/Title proof ownership/identification they will be glad to give you the required code.
