Hey all, I just purchased a 08slk280 with 21k on it. I bought it at an Audi dealer and the radio does not work. They do not have the radio code or nav disk. For price and mileage it was not a deal breaker for me. My question is w/o the code is it safe to say the unit should even turn on??? I won't be able to get to Benz until tues and just want to enjoy the ride with some tunes. Any ideas? Thank you. Excuse the grammar via iphone

Check fuses. There are two main fuse boards. One is behind the panel at the drivers end of the dash. The cover pops off with a small screwdriver in a slot halfway down the cover. The fuse chart should be in there The other is under the hood opposite side to the battery. some of the fuses under the hood relate to the radio

Love those blue SLK 280's !

Congrats on your new ride. If it's any consolation - just stick to curvy back roads and the tunes won't matter as much. Also - start going through the audio threads here and you will learn a lot.

My car is a lot older, but the version of radio you have makes a difference. There is a basic Audio 20(with an '08 you may have an Audio 50) with 1 CD, a Comand Unit (large color display) with (without?) a six disc CD changer, and Comand/Harmon Karden system.

As you said Nav I will assume it is a Comand system. Thus you can ignore a lot of the ranting on here about the A20.

You also may want to get a Datacard - It will tell you what was built in your car. Just go to the datacard thread and post your VIN # and someone will get you one. Or install EPC from Star TekInfo and get it yourself.

Plenty of info on the forum - you may want to read this - it has some great info on the M-B audio systems.

Then just wait for the rest of the guys on here to come to your rescue !

Welcome to the best SLK forum in the world !
