sorry i didnt resieve any information from you, but you should call the mercedes benz dealer and ask to get the radio code for you're car.if they give you the same 4 # XXXXX you already try,then you are going to have to get the radio out and get the serial #.with this # XXXXX MB can get the right radio code.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
it was a six digit code, the radio displays six empty dashes for code to be entered. all other codes i found for that radio were also six digits.
Expert:  nelson garcia replied 8 years ago.

you can only get the radio code from the MB dealer by providing the vin # XXXXX you're car.not from any other place.

ok, why is there a posting on this site from another customer, " I need a radio code for my 95 s320" that was answered by "eurotec" with a code? Can you not retrieve my code using my vin#?
Expert:  nelson garcia replied 8 years ago.
i could get it but the MB dealer that i work with is currently close.if you give me you vin# XXXXX could get it on monday.and then i'll tell you what to do.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

Expert:  nelson garcia replied 8 years ago.

Customer: replied 8 years ago.


Look forward to hearing from you Monday, Thanks!

Expert:  nelson garcia replied 8 years ago.
i will get it on monday. but first that wait message have to go away.leave the key on the second position with the message on the radio,after a while it should go away and then the dashes will apear.just then you will be able to put in the radio code and then press scan. dont know how long is going to take for that message to go away,so if i were you i would put a battery charger so the battery wont drain... tolk to u on monday..
