Customer Question
I have a 2018...

I have a 2018 Mercedes 300c, today when I turned my car on the navigation and radio will not turn on?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse?

I have not. I will check it out, thank you.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 300C yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have not tried anything. Literally happened an hour ago on my drive home. The camera comes on when I put it in reverse, otherwise nothing on the navigation display (Radio, GPS, Media) will function.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, that is it.

ok so sorry for the delay,

it looks like there is a bulletin for this that states that the radio is still in transport mode.

you will have to bring it to the dealership so they can use the scanner to release transport mode.

hope this helps,

Lou
