New guy from MA

Hey guys, new to the MB forum. Just a quick note, after many years of being a car nut and after 58 cars, 3 years ago I finally came to my senses and got a 1996 SL320. Yes I am happy, but it's been stored in my garage for 2 years. I finally dug it out last weekend to discover that I needed a new battery. After I replaced the battery I took the hard top off and stored it. I then put up the convertable top and the back window split. So, I just had the rear plastic windows replaced at the local trim shop. I then went to get an inspection sticker and the car failed inspection and the mechanic said the computer was in "not ready" so I have to drive it for a while and bring it back to see if it's ok.
Because of the battery dying after being stored for such a long time the radio dosen't work and of course I don't have the book for the code. If someone could help with the radio code I would be extremly greatful. The car is a 1996 SL320 VIN # WDBFA63F7TF139021
