Radio code is specific for each and every car. It is specific like anti theft code.

You can get it by providing your VIN# and registration details in authorized dealership.
Nobody else can provide you. If anybody can provide you that , then there is no meaning of security for your car.

    Not is this comment not useful, but it is not true. There are a number of services and altruistic highly intelligent folks who can and do provide those codes to legitimate owners to save them the trouble and, more importantly, the cost of going to the dealer to get the code. Since this response doesn't even actually address my request, nor is it accurate I am very puzzled as to the rank of guru for this individual.

    You don't get a guru rank for pointing customers to shady "services" and "altruistic highly intelligent folks" who crack security codes of stolen^Wmisplaced car radios when you can get them legitimately and with no extra hassle from an authorized dealer or service station.
    I am very puzzled on the rule out of this simple option as to the legitimate possession of the radio (and luxury car?) for this individual.

If it's an OEM radio Mercedes should have the code.. If it was replaced see if you can find the dealer that did the maintenance. It If you have the VIN# IT SHOULD LET THEM COME UP WITH THE SERIAL # AND HENCE THE CODE NUMBER.

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.

Radio codes

We can't supply these codes, we would need access to the factory data storage server, which of course we don't. You will need to see the MB dealer for the code.
