Question about Car Audio & Video

Open Question

Car radio: Eurovox 7479M (Mercedes 1994 C280) Radio displays a "1" on power up for a second or two then nothing. This only occurs when the radio has been disconnected for over an hour. Does this mean the head unit is faulty or simply needs resetting ? I have tried holding down the "eject" button to no avail. Please help.

if you have the message «wait» you did put a bad code, you have to ask a mercedes dealer to have your original code with your serial number of your car.
the message «wait» disappear about 30mn the first time and about 1h the second time if you reenter a new bad code, after the radio will be blocked. so get the right code and before you'll enter it turn on the radio and wait until the radio reask to enter the code.
I hope this helps

Hi colinelva.
I can probably help you but I need more info.
Lets start with the vehicle, What year ,? What specific model?, What type of head unit came out? Was it factory?
Did you use a wiring adapter, or just cut the plug off and hardwire it?. If so give me the color code of all the wires that you used in the dash. are their any left over but not hooked up? How many speakers? All Factory?

I don't need any info about the JVC Head unit.
Lets start with that, and we will take it from there.
Regards, Paul

Check your wires they might be touching steel around your car mostly look at your yellow and red wires those are the 1' that give it power and light to your radio also check your radio fuse in the back.

The plug wiring is not the same, so you would have to fabricate the wiring harness for the stereo.

You probably have either a bad connection at the battery on the smaller wire that connects to the + terminal or you have a blown or a bad connection to a fuse strip. Fuse strip looks like this http://www.joetlc.com/strip-fuse-mercedes-benz-p-17216.html

1994 C280 wont start


You left the key too long in the ignition switch. This sent an alert as if it were being stolen. Remove the key from ignition. Lock all doors. Wait about an hour or so. When you open the doors, put your foot down on the gas pedal and release. Put the key into the ignition and turn the car on.  Make sure you have the shift in "Park" position.
