Programming clock after com and removal

    I replaced a faulty COMAND unit in my 2004 SL600 with a Kenwood DNX7140.
    It seems in the 04 cars the Dash clock is set from the COMAND not the steering wheel stalk via the instrument cluster.

    What are the steps to use STAR diagnosis to fix this?
    How do I remove the phone and nav from the instrument display?

    Thanks!

    You will do nothing with the clock as it is CAN driven, does it run, does it always start at 12.00 each time you start the car and then start counting.

    You will need STAR to remove the unwanted displays from the cluster

    Clock without comand

    The clock keeps time, but to set it I have to rip out the Kenwood and Plug in COMAND. That isn't ideal.

    I understand that you can program the car to look for Audio 10 instead of COMAND. That triggers adding the clock setting programming into the intrument cluster (as all other years can do)

    If that is the case then yes you can tell the car that it does not have comand,, this menu you will find in the CAN B section on STAR
