Hi can anyone help me i have a s500 2003 model and when i start the car the comand unit reboots everytime which means i dont have a radio or satnav etc for about 10mins then it reloads and works fine,
i took it in to mercedes and they just tried to sell me a replacement for £3,150.00 and all they could say was it needs replacing and the unit is faulty.
thanks for any help

hi, it happens everytime i start the car up, a mechanic from merc said the Flash RAM is bad in the unit and it needs a component level board repair if i can find a shop to do it

OK and I take it it is a Bosch unit and you use a DX disc

You can get replacement on Ebay quite cheap,,and there are firms repairing them on Ebay take a look,,in the mean time I will try and find the address of one of the service guys
