You need the security code(4 digits). It should be in the black owners manual case. After you enter it press the * symbol. You can also go to the dealer and show proof of ownership and they can get it with the v.i.n. assuming it is the original radio. You can also remove the radio and give them the serial number and they can get you a code if it has been replaced. If the security code is the problem when the radio is turned on it will say code. If it shows a station number and there is no sound try replacing the fadar switch in the console that is another common failure. good luck

My 2000 ml 320 Mercedes battery die and now my radio need a code to work


You need to get the security code directly from the Mercedes dealership; you'll have to prove vehicle ownership...radio theft is quite prevalent...and the mere fact that it is called a security code is to deter such thefts; and to disclose it publicly would defeat the very purpose of having a security code.

Replaced the Battery and my Mercedes benz 1996 C280 CD player is requesting a code, does anyone know if it is unique or universal code, please supply if the code is universal.


To reprogram the radio there is 4 digit code. That code has to be inserted, once these code is inserted, your car radio will get into its actual setting where you can set/select your radio setting.


Many a time's radio asks for the code after car battery is disconnected.

On some cases to retrieve the code its mentioned in manual or else car dealer is other option to get car radio code.

The battery died in our 1995 500sl Mercedes. Now the radio says we need a code to turn it on. We do not have an owner's manual.


Usually your Mercedes dealer can get you a code for a nominal fee. They usually require the s/n off of the radio, and the VIN off of the car.

Check your owner's manual, just to be sure the sticker isn't in there from the original owner.

I have a 1990 300e mercedes that will start but will only run for a few seconds then die? Does anyone have any suggestions on what it might be?


I don't know much about Mercedes, but that is exactly what most other vehicles will do when the MAF(mass air flow sensor) is faulty. It's always a good idea to find one at an auto wrecker, and try it. Or the fuel filter clogged? Hope this helps.

Cant restart car radio


This sounds like an easy fix. I would locate the fuse that is for your radio, and try that. It is probably blown.

We are having a problem with the keyless entry for mercedes e420...the battery was dead and now it will not work any suggestions?


Not familiar with mercedes, but if it works like many other brands, the receiver unit in the car "forgot" the code when battery died. There is a procedure in owners manual for receiver to relearn the code transmitted by the key. When you do this, dont forget to repeat the procedure for the secondary key.
