Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 5 months ago

there is nothing that can be done for this issue without a mercedes scanner and an updated audio disc, here at the dealer we use the scanner and the disc to update the software and it usually fixes 99% of the issues, the other 1% can be any part of the audio system,

but we still need a mercedes scanner to get the codes to tell where to start with the diagnosis.

i have been working on these for 18+ years, its usually a software issue.

hope this helps.

Lou
