I performed the mod in which I utilized the tape function as aux in from my ipod. However, every-so-often the sound would fade out, I could hear the tape switching sides, and then it would fade back in. After being annoyed with it after so many months, I looked into it and read that the tape deck power wire could be cut with this mod so the tape wouldnt turn. Now when I push tape to hear the ipod, it plays for a couple seconds, fades out, says tape stuck, then converts to the radio. :banghead: HELP PLEASE!

I don't think that mod applied to the radio used in the SLK - at least the USA versions. I did a lot of experimenting with my radio, and I'm afraid that you're going to need to reconnect that power - there is no easy way around this. The electronics want to see a tach signal from the mechanics, and will not work without it.

I have worked up and implemented an aux in mod for these radios. Visit bipesauto.com/SLK/auxin
