Tele aid is muting...

Tele aid is muting the stereo

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this an aftermarket stereo, or did it come with the car?

Factory

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

05 ml350 special edition

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

Nothing. sometimes the stereo will work. then it will mute. says on the screen tele aid muted

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

Is there a way to disable the tele aid without affecting other components?

pull fuse 8 and 10 in the engine bay fuse box see if that helps or makes other items stop working.

if it does not help you can unplug the unit,.

its located under the seat on the passenger side i believe if memory serves me.

we used to have to unplug it and use a fiber optic bypass so the audio would still work.

you can find these on ebay.

hope this helps./
