1) Note that you can only have THREE trys, after which, your radio will lock you out completely
2) Put the key in the ignition in the "park" position
3) press the knob to turn on your radio
4) you should see that the "C" in "CODE" is blinking
5) enter the first digit of the 5 digit radio code
6) wait a while, and you should see the first digit start to blink
7) then, you enter the rest of the code
8) then, press "SC" or scan on your radio

...this was how I reactivated my stereo a week or so ago when I disconnected my battery...I dunno if the process is the same for your car too...

You should also have a separate radio operation guide along with the owner's manual. Each of my MBs have a slightly different set of instructions for reentering the security codes...

if you just purchased the car, maybe [?] it is still under warranty.

if you didn't get it from a m.b. dealer maybe it would be a good time [and excuse] to meet the service people.

HOPEFULLY they would be glad to help you.
