Factory Bose system in 2000 E430

Well, it happened again. My complete Bose system was replaced under warranty in August, 2002. In December, the system went out again. I received "No CD Changer" and "No Phone displays on the dash readout. Took it back to dealer and they replaced some "module" that had gone bad. I have had nothing but problems with this crappy audio system.

Anyone have any similar experiences or other info. about this problem?

The Mercedes/Bose system is a Weak Stereo system..
I Have had The Head and Amp replaced Also ...It Still had problems...
I Had a EURO comand Installed (By Steve) and The Problem Is Gone!
Strong FM signal...Better sound..And Everyone said You cant Install a comand into a car that was not built with a comand ..
WRONG!!..The sound is a lot better ..and its still O.E.
You Might want to think about a Euro comand!

Hey Mark,

Long time, no see. The Euro-Command system: exactly what does that consist of? Did you get this from Steve in The Netherlands? How is it different from our crappy US Bose stuff?

What phone are you using with it?

Thanks

Thumbs up Euro Comand

The Euro comand has a couple of Nice..Non USA features RDS and TV/DVD output.It also tells you ETA of planned Address..Nice!
You need the double din cage and a Comand and Some Misc Hardware.Oh Yeah dont forget the replacement wood piece Steve was amazed at the difference in Quality of the sound.. It Was Well worth the Investment!
