First off you need to update your profile and fill it out. That was we know where you are and can direct you to local members that may be able to help. It also let's us know what car you have so we can plug that info into EPC to narrow your model down. (Do you have a 420? 560? We don't know this?)

Second, you should be able to call your local dealer and get the unlock code. I get them from my dealer all the time for radios I get from the JY. I tried to get it out of EPC for you, but I do not know if or how it can be done. I know that my dealer can and does.

Try them.

thanks I wish i had your Car LOL! I love the SEC! my car is running great put a lot of work into to it. my main headache now is the Radio. I've bought 2 Beckers that just jam up and ruin my cassettes, will send them to MB Radio Repair. Have the BE 1480 just need the Code but i hope this time the Cassette works! getting tired of poor Sellers on eBay-- it's getting expensive....

I have one sitting here if needed. Listen, you can send it directly to Becker and they will rehab it, but it's not cheap. Also, there is a company that sells them refurn'ed and they are not cheap either.

Since you live here in LA, you live in Junk Yard central. If you start combing the JY's, I am sure you will come across radios. I have found at least a dozen over the last year and I only go there about once a month. Next time I go, if you wish to tag along, you may. I go to the Aalden Bros. yard in Sun Valley.

How do you remove a radio from a car so as to not set off the anti-theft mechanism again?

Have you checked with your local dealership for the code? My car still has the original radio and I misplaced my original radio code... ended up calling the local dealership (they know me, had they not it would have been different) and was supplied the code by giving the #'s you posted.

Good luck!
