Greeting from new member. I hope to be able to contibute as I get to grips with my first Mercedes after ten years of Audi.
Just now I need some input please. I have acquired a 2012 SLK 200. The FM and DAB radios have intermittent reception quality as if taken from a Model T.

Mercedes have been great over three workshop admissions to perform a software update and then replace the windscreen ariel amplifier at great cost to themselves. Nothing seems to have changed but the fault still comes and goes.

Has anyone any suggestions or similar experiences of this? Thanks in anticipation.:hail:

Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.

Hi Festive Quail,
I took delivery of my new SLK about 3 weeks ago. The DAB radio has been basically unusable. I do a 50 mile round trip to work and I cannot listen to any DAB radio for even a minute without it cutting out. My husband has an Audi and when I have used his car to travel to my work the DAB has been great. I have also driven a Ford Focus on the same route and that did have some problems but my SLK has been much worse. Overall, I am delighted with my car but the DAB is unusable. I have not yet contacted Mercedes about this problem.

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

I bring my IPod and plug it in, then listen to all my songs & playlists with no commercials, monthly fees and I love every album no need to flip or search thru different channels.

DAB= Digital Audio Broadcasting

IAB= IPod Audio Broadcasting ( I made this up its not in your SLK Manual)
