many of the manufacturers have their radios set up that way so they don't work in another car if the radio is removed. the problem is that the radio doesn't tell the difference between the battery going dead or being disconnected from being stolen, so it just locks up and you have to get it unlocked.

Take the $350 and pull the radio and call the Benz dealer with radio serial # and car vin they should be able to provide you with correct code if unchanged by previous owner

As michael has said if it the original system all you will have to do is go to your local Mercedes dealer with the car , take your log book too for proof of owner and they will be able to sort the code out for you with no charge !!!! Good luck
