hi all,

I've disconnected my battery and didnot have a radio code. The radio is an Alpine model #CM2396 for a '97 C230. Does anyone know or have any suggestion on how to get the unlock code and the procedure to program?

thanks much,
Dave

Call a dealer

For an OEM radio, you need to provide the VIN for your car and the dealer can look up the unlock code.

i can give you the code if you have the complete serial number, should be stamped in the radio chassis, it will start with BE or AL
