Customer Question
Hi. I am driving...

Hi. I am driving a Mercedes E200 W212 2010 model. I have an issue with my COMAND system

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '10 Mercedes?

E200 2010 W212

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

So far I have put the car back to factory setting, but the COMAND is still flickering. Went on and off at its will

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

It effects the Aircond too. Intermittent flow o air.

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? How many miles are on the car?

195,000 km. It has been like this for about 4 months. But situation is deteriorating.

Sorry you are having this issue. This is a very common one, in order to get this repaired you must have a update cd along with the mercedes scan tool. You will either have to have this done at a dealer which should run under 2 hours labor or at a european shop possibly bosch certififed that has access to mercedes servers in germany. But a software update is what will get you fixed up. Hope this information helps Please take a second and click the stars at the top of the screen to rate my service so I may receive my credit for helping, 5 STARS is ideal. Please request me in the future! Keep in mind that when you rate it does NOT end our conversation, you can still return here to me for follow up information if needed just simply reply back, THANKS!
