Locate the manuals you received when you purchased the car. On the inside cover (front or back) of one of them, the dealer should have pasted a white rectangular sticker with black print identifying the code for the radio. In my case, it was pasted on the inside back cover of the Owners Manual. The sticker has the MBZ emblem on the right, and alpha-numeric text on the right of the emblem making up 3 lines. One line has the code you are looking for, the other has the serial # of the radio.

Alternatively, contact a dealer near you, or send a letter to MBZ. If you send a letter to MBZ you must include the VIN #, and may want to include somthing to prove the you purchased the car and you shipped it to Africa.

Good luck.

Bought a mecedes 2002 clk320 two months ago and wife used car and some how got radio locked up when you now turn radio on it says (code) on radio screen, then if you push buttons for phone it says (wait)...

you will need to enter a code to get the radio to work again. if the code is not in the owners manual, you will probably need to call a dealership to get the code. you will probably need the vin number of the car.

I've just changed the battery today, then the radio doesn't work. I don't know the radio code as well. what should I do?


a dealer should be able to give you the code if you get the serial number from the radio, also are you sure the code is not in with your car books, service manuals and book packs, often it is in there o a small credit sized card. alternatively some radio decoders will come to you at home, they charge about £25 in the UK to recode the radio.

Hope this helps

Change battery and lost audio in 2002 yukon can't find the code to reset, what do I do. Follow the yukok book but still radio not working in Denali. .

First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc) 

To see if your code is available here for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .



Also quote the MAKE of CAR

note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number 

If not then try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive

Lost ML320 Audio System Security Code

A trip to a Mercedes dealer with your log book and proof of i.d and provided the stereo is the origional factory fit then they should be able to track down the code and instal it for a minimal fee.I needed a new key for my c36 amg,gave them the info from the log book and an origional pre programed key arrived 4 days later from germany.
