Smile new here fro Pittsburgh with a radio prob

hello! I got to this website because I am looking to see if I can get the security code for my radio without going to the dealer?

I just bought a 2002 ML320 from a friend of mine that moved out of the country. I shipped the car from los angeles to here and had the battery changed. Unfortunately, she lost the card with the radio code.

I've been reading the threads and I know some people ask for the radio serial number but I'm a housewife and really don't want to do that. The radio does not show any brands except for MB. I have my VIN but that's about it.

Hopefully someone can tell me what to do. Thanks!

I can help you out on monday if you give me the VIN as long as it has the original radio in there. If it is not the original then the radio will have to be removed to locate the serial number

thanks!

Thanks for replying.. sorry I just now found this website again.

I called the Mercedes dealership and they gave me the radio code already.. it's great to hear the radio working again

I have one question though.. I have the original radio and it has the Navigation option on the head.. it has the antenna as well.. and I bought the CD online. I was told by my friend that that's all I needed to get the navigation working. But when I got the CD it did not work.. It said "No Navigation Installed." Do I need to get anything else?

Thanks again.

btw, the Navigation CD that I bought say "Navigation CD for MCS" 2004.1 version. So I don't know if my unit doesn't have GPS unit (though I've been told that it should work if I buy the CD) & my radio head has "Navigation" option, or is it possible that I have the wrong version of the CD. I don't know what MCS exactly means or if 2004 version doesn't work coz my car is an 02? Help please!! Thanks!
