Your radio is made by CLARION and the only CLARION code
available for free (using a serial number ) from anywhere on the Internet is if
your radio alsohas a BARCODE SERIAL
NUMBER beginning with C 7000000 + + +
+on a label somewhere on the metal
If not then it will only be available fromyour Main Dealer or a Radio Decoding Service or
your local Car Radio / Audio Store who will connect a laptop to read/recode the
memory chip (EEPROM) inside your radio
Try looking for the code in the user manual or in the glove box. IF you cant find it then you only option would be to take the stereo out and get the serial number off it and then you would have to call the dealer to get the code. Try an audio shop, sometimes the work closely with dealership and can help you out
Hello, i have seen this problem on my car before when ever the battery got disconected or gone dead. stereo antitheft loc is on and some times if you try to put to many wrong codes in unsucsesfully i had to turn key on for one hour and then the correct code entered.its usually in owners manual under anti-theft stereo loc.they should have wrote the code in there manualy when the car was new.i took mine to a car audio dealer and got the code from a couple of digets that showed up on the radio when he held on to two buttons at the same time and called for the codes that were programed in.this is just a helpfull guide to a related problem i had in a grand prix i bought used and put a new battery in and had no code.i live in louisville ky. and went to a after market dealer on dixie hwy. and it costed about 60 dollars.but since i tryed the wrong code more than three times he had to leave the ignition on for an hour before it would unlock.it worked and i wrote the code down.its usually a 3-4 number code.
turn the radio off then hold numbers 1 and 6 down and hold at the same time.Then while still holding them down turn the radio on and a four digit number will apear followed by another four digit number.When you have both numbers call the dealer and tell him the numbers and they will give you the code.I did it today to mine.
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 MBZemblem 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.
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.
