Look under the dash for a rectangular door approximately 3" wide by 1" tall. It is located almost under the center of the dash close to the hood latch.

A couple of different possibilities here but this is a typical problem when it comes to the MB cd changers. Before ruling the cd changer bad, check the spring settings on the sides of the changer. Make sure they are in the 'H' position since it sits in the glovebox. The Mercedes cd changers don't have a reset button. 95% of the time its the cd changer that is bad when this scenario happens. Its caused by a linkage that gets knocked out of place internally of the cd changer. Also try not to use burned or homemade cd's as they can also cause the cd changer not to read the discs anymore.If your cd changer is brand new or a factory rebuild then the dealer should change it out no problem since MB cd changers are known for this problem. Also the version coding needs to done to configure the D2B fiber optic ring properly.

I would say your headlights have burned out. Often times people will lose one and not notice until the other one also burns out. If you can get someone with a voltmeter to check at one headlight for 12-13.8 volts while the headlights are switched on. If voltage is present at the connector then the bulb is burned out most likely. I've seen this many times. Your high beams probably work.

Unseen things can sometimes brain your battery. A trunk light that doesn't go off when the trunk is closed. Open the trunk and touch the bulb quickly, it should not be hot yet. If it is it's stuck on. The same goes for the glove compartment light.

There could be a problem with the alternator or even a battery that just won't hold a charge as opposed to an actual power drain. Fully charge the battery and then disconnect it for the night. Next morning reconnect it. If the charge is holding it will start just fine. If it doesn't then your battery is suspect.

Assuming you didn't drill the lock, it would have been best to access the interior of the vehicle (if not deadlocked, breaking in would be relatively simple) and current could be supplied to the vehicle via the cigar lighter or from under the hood by connecting to the battery circuit in order to use the in-car trunk release if fitted.
A way into the trunk can usually be found by removing the rear seat or hooking the keys using a fishing tool through the armrest aperture if there is one.

assuming it is right hand drive the logical place for the hood release is on the left side of the passengers seat just under the dash
