Mercedes Radio Code
Mercedes in its cars (mainly in older models) used radio and navigation security with the use of a code. This protection was used both in passenger models and trucks. Depending on the radio’s manufacturer (Becker, Alpine), the code has 5 or 4 digits. The problem with the blocked radio appears when the cad is lost.
Is it possible to recover the radio/navigation code without the need to dismantle the radio from the dashboard?
Some models can be decoded from the VIN number. The condition is that the radio should be the first receiver in a vehicle – factory-installed by the manufacturer. Otherwise, it is necessary to remove the radio from the car’s dashboard and calculate the code on the basis of information presented on the label. The necessary data, needed to generate the code, is: radio model and serial number.
