My radio code is 4 digits not 5 digit. this is a Mercedes stock radio

Hi, there is a 5 digit code on file in the Mercedes database. I show your car to be a blue SLK230 model year 99. I ran the vin number again and came up with the same code. Why do you say it is only a 4 digit code?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It ask for a code and shows 4 stars. I entered your code and it did 4 stars then started over again. tried last 4 and it still didn't work, now in a waiting period again.
Expert:  Marty replied 1 year ago.
The radio uses a 5 digit code but only shows 4 stars or spaces when you turn it on. Try entering all of the numbers again then press the OK button when you are done. If the code does not work you will need to remove the radio and give me the serial number from the radio chassis and I can look up the code that way. The radio must display CODE before you can enter the code.
Let me know how you make out.
