ML320 Command Upgrade??

4336 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  jbhorizonblueS430
I have a 2000 ML320. Recently the head unit stopped working. I just got hold of a command head unit out of a wrecked 2006 ML350. Along with all the wiring harnesses. I was told that if I relocate the two buttons on the side of my head unit and wire the harnesses up to the wires coming from the car for my old command, it'll work. My question is can it be done and is what I was told true? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks

Come on guys! I can't get no advice from nobody???
I am aware that its larger than my original factory unit. But I believe modifications can be made to make it fit. Like relocating the ESP and fog light buttons and of course widening the hole for which it will be mounted in. I got the unit free from a wrecked 06 ML350. Eventhough the truck was damaged badly. Once I pressed the power button on the command it did come on and work perfectly. I also have the vin from the wrecked ML so I think the command code can be acquired from the dealership. The only problem I believe I will run into is, this unit has two fiber optic wires that I believe runs to the factory amp, my car and amp only has one fiber optic wire. Thanks guys.
I forgot to mention. I am not sure if the ML350 comes equipped with different command units. But the one I have has two slots behind the screen. One for cds and and one for dvds
Hey thanks guys. I think i am going to sell it and buy a aftermarket one. Hey Mike's ML FYI. Some of the 2000 ML's do come standard with fiber optics and some don't. Mine is one of the ones that does. I am actually looking at a harness right now that has a red and white bulb looking light on the end of the plug. But I believe in 2001 all ML'S had fiber optics from that point on.
