Problem solved, radio code found!
Thanks Sokoloff. I went to Becker's website and found the code request form. Not wanting to spend $30 for another useless 5 digit code, I called customer service first. Turns out the radio is not a Becker but "Mercedes alternate equipment" i.e. ALPINE. Their service rep was extremely helpful and directed me to ALPINE USA. After about 2 minutes on the phone with an ALPINE customer service rep, they gave me a 4 digit code that actually worked and they gave it to me for free. I don't know why the Mercedes dealers' database can't find this code? Anyways, thanks so much for your help Sokoloff!
