E320 radio/fuse box picture

I recently bought a 2001 E320 used in pretty good shape.
I noticed that the CD players wasn't working though... specifically
I could put CD's in, but the radio console would keep saying CD not
connected. Then a few weeks later the radio stopped working all together
with the SERVICE logo on it. I noticed the same thing for the TELE

so in my infinit wisdom I went to the fuse box and disconnected the radio fuse and reconnected. Radio message went dead, and I got a new message asking for a code.

1)Is there a way I can get this code on-line instead of paying a dealer ?
2) Is there a way I could see if i connected the fuses properly. I am parnoid
I made a mistake.. Is there an actual picture of the fuse box somewhere
I can't make sense of the fuse box... its says side A and Side B and my brain having the spatial capacity of an earthworm can't comprehend.

anyways any help would be appreciated.

a password ?

You might get the radio code for free from your dealer too.

The A-block on the fuse box is for fuses 1 to 9 and is towards the front of the vehicle, B-block being the next for fuses 10 to 18. C, D and F in parallel behind B.

thanks.. got the code..

thanks... I got the code from the dealer.. and radio works fine now (although still no cd) you have any clue to why the radio would give an error

with regards to the fuse-box in the backseat bench
could you possible draw or have a picture of this.
I still have a hard time conceptualizing how the fuses go

again this is only for the fuse box at the back seat. The schematic
has side 1 and side 2.. which is what confuses the hell out of me.

Hey, Joe. Welcome to the forum, please click the user cp link and complete your profile re: vehicle and location as that information is often very useful.

You posted in the "general" forum but there is a specific forum for your car, the W210 forum, scroll down into the sedans section and you'll see it. From there you will find scandalous amounts of information, including how to fix the missing cd player issue (although first you should try not removing a fuse, but disconnecting the battery, stepping on the brake for a half-minute, then reconnecting the battery) which often works. If you don't know there is an access panel just in front of the rear passenger seat that allows easy battery disconnect. Follow the steps in your manual to reset a few things and re-enter your code, then see how you are.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
