Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.
Disconnect both battery cables (positive and negative) and clamp or use a jumper wire to hold them together, turn key to on position and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then turn ignition off and remove key, reconnect battery cables at a time, positive first then negative. This should reset the system.
If this doesn't not work then you will most likely have to replace the unit.

Its perfectly safe. Yes it is resetting all of the computers in the car including the radio. Hopefully it works out for you.
