Hi, I have a 2000 S430 and every now and then the audio system will go off for a second or two (Does not matter if I'm listening to the radio or the CD. I have turned OFF the phone and navigation systems). One time the entire audio system went off. When I restarted the car the audio came on again. Anyone experience this?

yea... (more)

Sometimes my car audio doesn't work. My cd changer is not detected and my radio tuner is muted. A simple restart of the car fixes the problems.<br> <br> The S class is known for these weird, minor but annoying glitches.

I had this experience a few times...and it seems to get worse. The dealer said that the car needed a 'software' upgrade and that several S-classes were ahead of me. However, the mechanic showed me that I could make a short-term fix by unplugging the CD-changer and replugging it back in. It seems to 'reboot' the entire stereo system.

I have a 2001 S500 and encountered same 'problem' in first few weeks. Turned out it was simple signal that I had a call or message waiting on the on-board Motorola telephone. Listen to the message and the few seconds of silence go away. Honest! Hope this helps. JIM
