You should bring it to an authorized Mercedes dealer, or call ahead to other sound sytem installers. They may have a tech who knows about Mercedes sound systems.

try to start the car and unplug the coil packs one at a time. listen for changes in the way the car runs. it sounds like you have a dead cylinder or two. be aware of VERY small changes in the sound as i had mine running on 2 of six cylinders and it still ran. if you notice that you have a dead cylinder check the coil packs for corrosion on the connectors if they are fine. investigate the ptu (on the passenger side timing belt cover there are 2 versions the old version is known for failing and knocking out a few cylinders's/PTU%20Repair.pdf

rough idle could be caused by vacuum leaks and or incorrect timing should be 15 degrees before tdc

Is it possible: change cd changer input to ipod input

I'm afraid not. The best advice I can give you is to get a Radio Tuner Adapter for your I-pod. Most prople will tell you to use a Cassette adapter, and this is fine. However it sounds like you want the best sound you can get from your I-pod. The tuner adapter is the way to get it. You will get a better sound frequency range from your factory tuner than your cassette. The factory Head unit in your Sable isn't bad, just changing the factory speakers will make a huge diffrence. Good Luck, and don't forget to vote.

Cd player installation

read my other solution on the other one you posted. yes, the fuse is more-than-likely blown. but also you wired it completely wrong. look on my other solution on the other one you posted, it has the correct wiring diagram. there are 2 wires on the wiring diagram i posted that have the lights. one red is the int.light, and the other one is the turn signal wiring.
