Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I won't be able to get your code until Tuesday. Are you able to wait until then?
Well, the radio finally started working. I had only driven about 15 minutes tonight when the code input popped up. I used the codes I got from the dealer, and it worked, So I am going to accept your answer.
Now can you point me in the right direction for a bonus. Almost instantly after the radio came on, so did the battery light on the dash..... followed by the ESP light and the SRS light. So I headed for home, didn't make it. The car died and would not restart. So I looked at the battery, it was 4 years old, so I figured I would swap it out, at least it might get me home. The car started up, and ran fine, and I made it home. The other lights went out, but the battery light remained. Do you think its the alternator, and is that something I could change myself? I have changed dozens of alternators on American made cars..... or are there just too many things it could be, and I should take it to the local Mercedes dealership....
Well, that did the trick. Alternator and radio now working. I sent you a bonus as promised. I am going to be replacing a few things on the cars interior over the next few months, so I am sure I will be needing you again.
The alternator change was a snap. Altogether took only about an hour. I figured I could probably handle it, but your directions were a big help, and you gave me the confidence to try it. Thanks again for all your help, and I will be in touch again soon.
