I just got an 2005 S500 and sometime the comand just stopped working. The screen lights up when you hit 'power' but then after a few seconds it says "SYSTEM UNAVAILABLE" then shut down. Doesn't matter if you try radio, CD, Nav, Service, Phone, etc. ( it will display Nav unavailable.. Phone unavailable.....)I try to restart car, sometime it's help, but sometime is not. I went to dealer yestoday, after check they said: should be Amplifier problem, and I need change one..It's almost 2000 bucks.....(Actually, I don't think it's amplifier problem, because when everything is works, it's works, never stop until next time when I start my car)..I'm tired for tihis problem right now.... :surrender:

Did anyone have experience for this?
:crybaby2:
Thank you...

this almost sound like a fiber optic problem to me. if you have any kind of a break in the optic link you can end up with all kinds of problems like that. Some place in the loop you probably have a kink, or a connection that is just not plugged in all the way. try checking all the plug in connections at the amp, the phone, the disk changer, and the radio.
good luck

Dadzilla is correct - however, if the problems persist after the check of the connections, it could be a bad component - e.g., your amp. A bad component will effectively act the same way a broken connection would. An internet search on "Mercedes Bose Repair" will get you the names of any number of shops that repair Bose amps in Benzes. Costs are a LOT less than a new one.

For help locating the system components (and therefore the connections) see the phone bulletin for your car at Phone Bulletins
