    W204 CD Problem.

    I thought I would post an update to this thread as I think I may have found the problem. I still sometimes get the "drive Unavailable" message but it has been accompanied by "Power consumption too high". I don't do a lot of miles and the car does lots of small journeys. Once or twice a week I...

    W204 CD Problem.

    I agree, it sounds either mechanical or electrical but I don't fancy putting grease or oil through the "letterbox". I'll just have to see how it goes. Putting a cleaning disc though it won't cure that problem but I doubt it has ever been done before and shouldn't do any harm.

    W204 CD Problem.

    Well ya bugger!!!! After phoning round a Merc Specialist then an Auto Electrician I decide just to try the CD player one more time and it worked. :oops: :oops: :oops: That's good news of course but I wonder what was causing it to malfunction. Anyway I will get a lens cleaning CD and run that...

    W204 CD Problem.

    Thanks Mark. There is a CD in the player which won't eject so I couldn't get a cleaning disc in there. It's my favourite CD too. :oops: I'll give my local specailist a ring this morning if they are open.

    W204 CD Problem.

    Well it could be better so I'd be grateful for your fix. I have a Autoguard Warranty on the car so I may be able to get the disc repaired or replaced under that.

    W204 CD Problem.

    It's actually a poor picture taken in poor conditions. The screen is in much better condition than it looks there.

    W204 CD Problem.

    Hi All, This morning I have a problem with my CD player. The radio and Sat Nav work fine but when I switch to Disc I get a message saying "Drive Unavailable".. It is the single CD player not the multi disc version. I realise that it may mean the player is kaput but was wondering if anyone had...

    Winter tyres and storage

    As I have not had my W204 long (since May) and this is the first rear wheel drive car I've had in many years I have been thinking about the coming winter and that probably I'd have to just not use the car if it snows. I have nowhere to store tyres if I change temporarily for the winter season so...

    W204 DAB Radio Options?

    I have a 2013 W204 220 and i think it's a bit ridiculous that Mercedes did not fit DAB radios when my last car, a 2013 Ford Focus came with DAB as standard.

    Who adds any DPF cleaner to the fuel?

    Itchy Boots

    Yes, she is such an optimist and a glass half full woman. I've watched both of her adventures now, Europe, the Middle East and Thailand and also the one to South America. Superb entertainment.

    Itchy Boots

    Yes it is sad the way the British bike industry just collapsed. Royal Enfields are available all over the world and the only problem she had on both trips was with the head bearing which seems to be a known concern. I don't think she added any oil except during oil changes. I would have loved...

    Itchy Boots

    I haven't seen The Long Way Round yet but I did see the link to it and will definitely be giving it a go, I'm binge watching Itchy Boots, can't stop watching it.

    Itchy Boots

    Have a look Darrell, I think you'll like it. It's best to watch series one, "Adventures with Basanti" first. That's the one from India to Holland. Then series two "Adventures with Dannho" where she goes to Patagonia.
