Red face 2001 CKL320 Convertible BASKET CASE?

First off i bought this car and it came with an extra passenger seat.The owner said the power motor was out. I didnt get around to fixing the seat quite yet as the weather got nice and Ive been doing alot of cruising. One morning I went to leave and the top no longer worked at all. Evidentally sometime during the evening my brother had borrowed a fuse from underneath the hood that was labeled for the conv. top. So I replaced the missing fuse and the top no longer seems to work its like its got a mind of its own now it never completely operates automatically i have to do a portion of it manually. During all this messing around with the top my battery completely dies. I charge it up now My radio is no longer working. It keeps asking for the code, I called the dealer got the code attempted to enter it multiple times but it still wont accept it. Did I metion that someone has taken out the cd changer? So I said screw it and fix the seat. Well it wasnt the motor afterall. So I tried a differnt switch on the passenger side door. seat still dont work. SO A QUICK RECAP.,, Seat dont work radio wont accept code, Power top wont work acts like its outta synch. Is this all somehow connected?

Welcome to MB ownership,cars like no other,with minds of their own. Your computer may have got confused between your battery and your brother. tell your Bro hands off my car, small things like this can drive you nuts. you may have to reset the computer? make sure your battery is at full charge start/run your car when you move the top. sometimes the radio gets changed check your owners book for info. take the negative battery cable off overnight,reconnect it and see if your top works. hope this helps you. you may need an indy to reset the codes, or a trip to the stealer.
