Customer Question

I have a mercedes W169 Japanese import(A170 2005). I want to install a later model radio..
ZB NUMBER A1698705594 (model MN3840)
6 STACKER CD with blue tooth.
I remove the original radio and plugged the harness into the replacement radio. The radio fired up and the stearing wheel controls worked...volume and frequency change plus CD and Blue tooth...however, the CD stacker would not allow CDs to be installed and none of the radio stations on FM or AM would play. Where my original radio had a black and a yellow (2) separate antennae recepticles, the replacement radio has only one (the yellow).
I would like to use the six stacker radio...can you assist me in getting it to function please.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer.

You may have to install an after market antannae cable and antannae if the cables are not the same in order to obtain the AM and FM stations.As for the cd changer issue this may be due to a fault internaly in the radio if the cd changer is built into the radio.It would need to be repaired to correct this here or replaced as an assembly.If this is a separate cd changer let me know.
