Re: Car radio Code
The code for this radio was not set by the factory, but by the original owner and the code could be anything-unfortunately unless you contact the original owner and they know the code you are out of luck

Unless you have the code ( which is usually with your car hand book) the only other option is go to main dealer and ask there what you can do about it, if you end up fixing it, put the number somewhere safe for the next time the battery is disconnected.
When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect it again, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your car radio. The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. If you do not have this code you need to go to your Mercedes service centre and get them to enter this code for you.
There is no code for resetting a radio. If there is not reset switch, you can reset a radio by disconnecting power to it for a few seconds. This can be done by either disconnecting the wire harness behind the radio, or if you don't know how to get the radio out of the dash, you can disconnect one of the terminals of the battery for a few seconds.

the radio anti theft system is operated when,for any reason, the power is turned off/disconnected,(safe mode)in some markets,the dealers do not keep the factory code (0000) OR the code inputed by the owner...SO, if anybody turns the power off(disconnects)the radio DIES....and garages will then charge you to "repair" it.
the garage would have known this but i cant see them offering to pay for disconnecting your battery.....
the only alternative is a specialist radio shop who may be able to
short the code out..in england the company is "radioactive" and they charge £15.00 at your house.....
i have a 2004 jaguar x-type and i replaced my battery and the radio is locked and i dont know the code. i bout the car second hand and the code that the dealership has isnt working. what can i do to get the radio unlocked?
You will probably have to contact the manufacturer and speak to a technician to get the factory reset code. Chances are, the code was put in by the previous owner of the car. When this code is entered, it makes it impossible for the unit to operate if stolen. Hope this helps...
