Hello Walter

there should be a standard 12V / lighter socket

is this not the case?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Matt,


 


I know I have a lighter connection, but my question relates to the jack point in my glove compartment. According to Mercedes there are three posible types of cable 1) socket for jack plug, 3.5mm, e.g. for MP3 players


2) iPod socket for connection of an iPod .


3) USB socket for connecting supported USB devices.


 


Each of the cable have one end for connecting to the Audio20 Aux jack in the glove compartment.


 


I just do not seem to find any company that supplies these cables.


 


regards

Hello Walter

Ok

there's a couple of cables you buy from mercedes

On the W203 C Class for chassis number A907502 (14th March 2006) and before part number A210 440 50 05 is used (which is the same as the older COMAND 2.0 cable).

From Chassis number A097503 part number A203 440 18 08 is used

so yours should be the latter part

Glad to have helped

Bear in mind that the site takes a deposit from you at the beginning and this is held by the site until you rate my answer at which point the cash is split between the site and the expert. so if my answers have been helpful please rate my answer.

If you don't rate then you can use the cash at a later date to ask another question.

However you can keep asking questions on the same post as the process is supposed to a be a dialogue with information going back and forth to solve the problem
