Hello! I'm a very happy new owner of a 1992 190e. I love the car. I spent Sunday afternoon under the hood getting to the blower motor to address the squeaking issue. Anyway I disconnected the battery to do the work and when I reconnected it radio is asking for code. I had no idea that I would need one and when I phoned up the dealership here they looked up the VIN and said .. "Oh, American car, we don't have a record for this one you have to get it from the states". So my question to you folks is whether someone can please help me out with this?

The irony is that I was fixing the squealing blower motor so I could enjoy my tunes :/ (and not go insane)

No I didn't steal a stock radio from a 92 Benz :)


edit: Oh lastly, parts guy at the dealership here said I would need the serial off the back. I really don't want to pull the stereo and I was under the impression that one only needed the VIN???

If it does not make sense to steal a -92 radio, it must have no value and it would not cost much to have another one with a code?

Why not post the VIN code, otherwise it is difficult to see if the code is in the MB database.

Someone was kind enough to send me the data card for my car. Anyone know what the AMG Drivers Package is? Looked it up but can't find much.

Phew .. ok, I had to get the serial number off the deck because the code was not on the data card :/

Here it is, if someone can help me out it's much appreciated and would save me all sorts of long distance phone calls to dealerships in the states:

Over here we can just go to the nearest car audio shop and they take the back off and bypass the code.So you never have to do it again,they charge £10.

Nevermind I'm dumb. The code was in the owners package on a card.
Of course.
