    The radio has a blinking red light by the off/on dial.When I start the car and turn the radio on,I get nothing!There is no "code".The radio has just been replaced with an orignal replacement in working condition,which I bought on E-Bay.

    The fuse to the radio is good!

    Thank you

    There is no "code" lit on my radio when I turn it on.There is a small blinking "Red" lite by the volume dial, which blinks all the time.The radio is the 2nd one installed which I bought on e-bay.

    The fuse is good. In case you forgot this a factory radio for a 1997 MB C230

    Thanks

Use the numbered buttons on the radio to enter the code, then change the station to activate it.
(check your owners manual for more detailed instructions)

If the radio does not say CODE when you turn on the car - it has been permanently locked from multiple access attempts.

Switch on the radio, "CODE" will appear on the display. Using the buttons on the alpha-numeric keypad, enter the five digit code. Confirm by pressing the "OK" key.
If an incorrect code has been entered and confirmed, "CODE" will reappear on the display. The correct code must be entered once again. If an incorrect code is entered three times, "WAIT" will appear on the display and the radio will be locked out for about 10 minutes.

Are you sure you have the right code? if not, call Mercedes Factory Assistance (800)367-6372 and give them your VIN, they'll give you the right code.

If the radio has no response (no CODE or WAIT displayed) you can turn the key to run position, and leave it for 5 hours. If it does not reset - a trip to the dealer will be required to activate it again.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi there,

ENTER RADIO CODE

When the radio is first turned-on, “code” will display. To enter the code, rotate the right-hand knob until the correct number displays in the prompted location, then push & release the right-hand knob to confirm. The prompt will move to the next position; repeat the process until the prompt is again at position #1, then push and hold the right-hand knob until the radio turns on.

Good Luck!!
Thanks

I want to know which auto engine is it that has this engine number: R1110163301


The numbers you have given relate to the cylinder heads used in Mercedes cars. There are a few different models that use this head in it. These are the ones listed for that particular cylinder:
1)MERCEDES C-CLASS -97 200 KOMPRESSOR ELEGANCE M111.944 5VX 4DR SED BENSIN
2)MERCEDES C-CLASS -00 5DCBI 200I 5VXL SER ABS 2,0I 5-MANUELL 5DR CBI BENS
3)MERCEDES CLK-CLASS -00 2DCOUPE 230KOMPR AUT SER ABS 230 KOMPRESSOR AUTOMAT
4)MERCEDES ML-CLASS -97 MB 230


In other words, you'll need to get more information than what you have currently.

Need master code for radio in a 2000 ml320


Hi,

Regretfully due to reasons of theft or piracy we do not pass the radio codes here at FixYa. If you contact your local Mercedes-Benz dealer they will give you the 5 digit code. (You must have your registration and know the complete serial number of the radio)

Replaced battery in 1996 Honda Accord which deactivated radio.


You need to code ..punch in code then power radio up and it will work. For a fee if its the original radio for this car the code can be retrieved by the dealer. If you entered to code incorrectly more than 4 times you will need to disconnect battery for 30 second and re-enter code. good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Lost Car radio code after removal of battery head model ML320 1998 version. Serial Number Radio -103725 Label Number: MIC 408013 Reference Number: LP 29102 Made Bose


Real easy. Go to the MB dealership, proceed to the parts department give them the VIN of your car(I used my insurance card) ,they type in your VIN, few seconds... they hand you over a post-it w/ your code.

Go to your car punch in the code and make sure you press OK.

Your done ...radio works again.

P.S. I have a 1999 e320
