Hi
2001 E200K W210
Middle of last week I got a message on display about battery and alternator problem and car was slow to start but fine after that. I decided this afternoon to clean battery terminals as voltages were all good. I used a memory saver via cigarette lighter when I disconnected battery but for some reason it did not work. I now have no radio code, message came on the display about ABS and BAS and also my electric windows will only go down but not up again .
Took stereo out to see if I could find a code but nothing obvious - normally codes are 4 digits but 5 are showing up on display. It is Audio 10 Model BE3100, Serial No Y2703560.
If anybody can help in any way with these problems it would be much appreciated? I really need to use car tomorrow for an important long trip.

Cheers
MFK

In my panic to get help because my windows were all wide open I didnt do any searches :-[

I have solved the BAS ABS problem - fully lock steering wheel each way and it clears it.

Windows now closed - half press button and they will come up and then hold close position for a few seconds. Have to do this on each window individually.

Just realised seat headrests would not adjust either - all you have to do is move seat fully forward and the hold headrest switch in up direction for a few seconds

It is like some sort of synchronisation process after power supply interupt.

Now just the radio - anyone able to help with a code - PLEASE :p

Cheers

My headrests will only go down so far, leaving about 1" between them and the top of the backrest. I asked at the dealer and they told me that's as far as they will go. Thanks for the tip and I will try moving the seats all the way forward. I don't understand why these 2 functions are inter-related.

You are correct: depending on who you talk to, you accomplished either the synchronization or re-synchronization process.

Good Luck with the radio code.

My headrest is the same as yours - about an inch from the seat but at least it moves now!!

We both have 2001 E-Class so I guess that's as far down as they will go and both of ours are working properly?
