Help Need Radio Code! Please need a radio!!

Hey guys I just bought my first 01 CLK430 and I love it. The ride home I had no radio, it read WAIT. So I waited till it reset and I put in the code that was associated with my vin# 46462. Tried it 3 times and it goes back to wait. So im assuming the radio was not original to this car, however it is a stock radio. here are the numbers on the back of the radio. someone please help the dealerships are closed for the next few days and need some music!!


AL191010260731
USANJ19945
MODEL CM1910
A2088201186

I took all the numbers down because I didnt know which were needed to get the code. thanks guys!!!

Can't help if it's not the OEM radio. Since you have taken the radio out of the car to get those numbers (unless you are REALLY limber). there is nothing for it.

You may have done the process wrong, but the manual tells you what that process is. Usually the radio code is linked to the VIN. I don't know what the deal is with a new radio.

Sorry. Have yourself a merry little (but silent) Christmas.

Good luck.

it is the oem radio. just not the original radio for this car I guess. I found a reciept in the paper work where the dealer said it was the wrong code and they had to remove the radio to get the numbers to get the right code. yes I took the radio out so I could get the numbers off of it. someone please help me out!! ha


heres my vin#WDBLJ70G61F168349

the guy i bought it from also had an E class as well. maybe this radio was from his E class and he mixed them up when he put it back in. heres the vin for the E class

WDBUF83J25X179562

I mean i dont think the radio from an E class and clk are interchangable, but who knows. What numbers do you guys need off the radio. i think i got them all listed?

Posting the code on the net would be illegal even if a proffesional members has the acces to the MB system.
Take the car to any MB dealership with proof of ownership and they will find the code for you.
Free of charge.
Beats Audi deal where the charge is in $40-120 range.
