The Code should be 5 digits, did you hold the one and six buttons while turning on the radio to get the unit numbercode? Thats usually the best way to verify the unit.
Does the radio come on asking 'CODE' or is there ever an 'ERR' error?

i bought my car used and it came with a little card in the glove box. idk if you've looked there yet but yeah. anywho thats happened to me multiple times when i kill the battery so if it just says "ERR" then try to do what you did before and then enter that code. it has to be five digits.

You don't have to pay any one to pull the radio. It is really simple to do, if your interested in doing that I can get you a tutorial on how to do it. My friend has a 2000 benz E320 and he had the same problem, the code the dealer gave us was wrong. Well it turned out the previous owner had to change the radio so we needed the serial number to get the right code. So if you haven't gotten the serial number, that is probably your problem. It is very easy to pull the radio out.
