They have a speed dependent volume so it does have wheel speed sensor input which could cause the wierd reverse only operation. It sounds like a software problem-I would try version coding the head unit(which will have to be done if you have a c.d. player or telephone in the car. Try to unmute it from the steering wheel buttons it may think there is a phone in the car and is muting the radio for phone operation. Your best bet is to pull codes and version code with a s.d.s. machine or at least a hand held tester but the majority of after market scan tools will not communicate with the d2b system which is your radio or sound system. good luck I hope I have been helpful

The audio system on my 2004 Mercedes clk 320 is muted. How can I reverse this,so that I can hear radio,cd,nav?


There could be several different issues occuring. As with everything electrical, you could try unplugging the battery's negative post, let it sit for 5 minutes, and reconnect it and see if it reboots. This guy on youtube gives and in depth way to trouble shoot the multiple systems which affect audio & could interrupt the signal. It's kinda like old Christmas lights. One 'bulb' goes out, it affects the rest down the chain...

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.
