Question Radio Code?

I have a '93 190E Mercedes, I've just had a blown fuse and my brake lights, gas gauge, radio and control panel lights all stopped working. I replaced the fuse and everything is working fine now, but my radio is asking for a code. I have no idea how to go about getting this done. If you could please give me a little advice, I would be more than grateful.

The radio code card was included in the owner's manuel. It looks just like a credit card but it had 5 or 6 digits on it. You must enter these digits into your radio then press the "SC" button for the radio to operate. This is to prevent thieves from using the radio if they steal it.

If you don't have the code then your dealer can get it and then keep it in a safe place!

I got this car from a towing company and I cannot find the manual anywhere. So I don't know who to call for this code.

You cannot "call" anyone.

I recommend you follow Designo_E320's advice and go to the dealer. If you have proof of ownership, they will give you the code. If you do not have proof of ownership, no one at MB USA will give you the code, and the dealer is not supposed to.
