Mercedes Benz Radio System Issues and Resolutions

Are you having trouble with a non-working radio on your Mercedes-Benz?
We have listed down common issues with the Mercedes-Benz COMAND system, including problems with
– the main unit
-radio stuck on Mercedes-Benz logo
-radio shuts off randomly, turns on and then off
-radio powers on but there is no sound
-COMAND will freeze
-radio panel doesn’t turn on, and;
-Audio Gateway drains the car battery

How to Fix Issues with the COMAND System

The most common solution to fix any of these issues is to try to perform a soft reset of the COMAND unit. For you to do that, you will need to remove the fuses for the CD Changer, COMAND/ NAV / DVD Player / Radio, Audio Gateway AGW, and the Voice Unit if it is equipped with one, for at least 10 minutes. Doing a soft reset for these systems will force the head unit to rest. This normally restores the systems to working order. Chances are the symptoms may return. If this happens repeatedly, a professional Mercedes Benz repair technician or mechanic can help check any updates for your COMAND / navigation unit.

How to perform a soft reset of the COMAND / NAV Radio System


  1. Find the fuse box under the dashboard. Pry the side cover, look for fuse 26 and 28 and remove both fuses.

  1. The second fuse box may be on the left side of the trunk. Locate and remove fuse 6.

  1. Take out the key from the ignition and don’t turn on the car for at least 15 minutes.

Windshield Wiper Issues and Fixes

Mercedes-Benz windshield wipers are used to clean your car’s windshield from rain, snow, and debris so that the driver has a clearer view of the road.

There are common windshield wiper issues which Mercedes-Benz drivers experience. Here are a list of possible issues and how to troubleshoot them:

1. Mercedes-Benz windshield wiper runs, but the arms remain static.
The windshield wiper arms could have seized at the time where they pivot around the mechanism. The teeth on the wiper motor gear also may have worn out causing the wipers to stop moving. It could be possible that the wiper arms or linkage is broken or the bolt is loose.
Lubricate the mechanism to help free the arms up. Turn off the wiper motor and try to move the wiper arms manually across the windshield. Inspect the link between the wipers and the wiper motor. Tighten the bolts that hold the windshield wiper arm in place. Make sure there is nothing that obstructs the wiper blades too.
2. Wipers stopped working after the arms were replaced. The windshield wiper will no longer work after you properly install the new wiper arms. If the wipers were working earlier, then it should work with the new arms.
Look at the hood. The hood on a Mercedes needs to be closed for the windshield wipers to operate.
