Important safety notes

WARNING

When you operate or program the garage door with the integrated garage door opener, persons in the range of movement of the garage door can become trapped or struck by the garage door. There is a risk of injury.

When using the integrated garage door opener, always make sure that nobody is within the range of movement of the garage door.

WARNING

Combustion engines emit poisonous exhaust gases such as carbon monoxide. Inhaling these exhaust gases leads to poisoning. There is a risk of fatal injury. Therefore never leave the engine running in enclosed spaces without sufficient ventilation.

The HomeLink garage door opener integrated in the rear-view mirror allows you to operate up to three different door and gate systems.

Only operate garage doors using the integrated garage door opener if: they are equipped with a safety stop and reverse feature, and
they conform to the current U.S. safety standards.

When programming a garage door opener, park vehicle outside the garage.

Certain garage door drives are incompatible with the integrated garage door opener. If you have difficulty programming the integrated garage door opener, contact an authorized Mercedes- Benz Center.

Alternatively, you can call the following telephone assistance services: USA: Mercedes-Benz Customer Assistance Center at
1-800-FOR-MERCedes
Canada: Customer Service at 1-800-387-0100
HomeLink hotline 1-800-355-3515 (free of charge)

Programming

Programming buttons

Observe the "Important safety notes"  .

Integrated garage door opener in the rear-view


Integrated garage door opener in the rear-view mirror

Garage door remote control 5 is not part of the integrated garage door opener.

The first time before programming, clear the integrated garage door opener memory  .

Turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock.

Press and hold one of buttons 2 to 4 on the integrated garage door opener.

After a short time, indicator lamp 1 lights up yellow.

Indicator lamp 1 lights up yellow as soon as button 2, 3 or 4 is programmed for the first time. If the selected button has already been programmed, indicator lamp 1 will only light up yellow after ten seconds have elapsed.

Release button 2, 3 or 4. Indicator lamp 1 flashes yellow.

Point garage door remote control 5 towards buttons 2 to 4 on the rear-view mirror at a distance of 2 to 8 inches (5 to 20 cm).

The required distance between remote control 5 and the integrated garage door opener depends on the garage door drive system. Several attempts might be necessary. You should test every position for at least 25 seconds before trying another position.

Press and hold button 6 on remote control 5 until indicator lamp 1 lights up green.

If indicator lamp 1 lights up green or flashes, then programming has been successful.

Release button 6 on remote control 5 for the garage door drive system.

If indicator lamp 1 lights up red: repeat the programming procedure for the corresponding button on the rear-view mirror. When doing so, vary the distance between remote control 5 and the rearview mirror.

If the indicator lamp flashes green after successful programming, the garage door system is using a rolling code. After programming, you must synchronize the garage door opener integrated in the rearview mirror with the receiver of the garage door system.

Synchronizing the rolling code

Observe the "Important safety notes"  .

Your vehicle must be within reach of the garage door or exterior gate drive. Make sure that neither your vehicle nor any persons/ objects are present within the sweep of the door or gate.

Turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock.

Press the program button of the door or gate drive (see the door or gate drive operating instructions, e.g. under "programming of additional remote controls").

Usually, you now have 30seconds to initiate the next step.

Press previously programmed button 2, 3 or 4 of the integrated garage door opener until the door closes.

The rolling code synchronization is then complete.

Notes on programming the remote control

Canadian radio frequency laws require a "break" (or interruption) of the transmission signals after broadcasting for a few seconds.

Therefore, these signals may not last long enough for the integrated garage door opener. The signal is not recognized during programming. Comparable with Canadian law, some U.S. garage door openers also feature a "break".

Proceed as follows:
if you live in Canada if you have difficulties programming the garage door opener (regardless of where you live) when using the programming steps

Press and hold one of buttons 2 to 4 on the integrated garage door opener.

After a short time, indicator lamp 1 lights up yellow.

Release the button.

Indicator lamp 1 flashes yellow.

Press button 6 of garage door remote control 5 for two seconds, then release it for two seconds.

Press button 6 again for two seconds.

Repeat this sequence on button 6 of remote control 5 until indicator lamp 1 lights up green.

If indicator lamp 1 turns red, repeat the process.

Continue with the other programming steps (see above).

Problems when programming

If you are experiencing problems programming the integrated garage door opener on the rear-view mirror, take note of the following instructions: Check the transmitter frequency of garage door drive remote control 5. This can usually be found on the back of the remote control.

The integrated garage door opener is compatible with devices that have units which operate in the frequency range of 280to 433MHz.

Replace the batteries in garage door remote control 5. This increases the likelihood that garage door remote control 5 will transmit a strong and precise signal to the integrated garage door opener in the rear-view mirror.

When programming, hold remote control 5 at varying distances and angles from the button that you are programming. Try various angles at a distance between 2and 12 inches (5to 30 cm) or at the same angle but at varying distances.

If another remote control for the same garage door drive is available, repeat the same programming steps with this remote control. Before performing these steps, make sure that new batteries have been installed in garage door drive remote control 5.

Note that some remote controls only transmit for a limited amount of time (the indicator lamp on the remote control goes out). Press button 6 on remote control 5 again before transmission ends.

Align the antenna cable of the garage door opener unit. This can improve signal reception/transmission.

Opening/closing the garage door

After it has been programmed, the integrated garage door opener performs the function of the garage door system remote control.

Please also read the operating instructions for the garage door system.

Turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock.

Press button 2, 3 or 4 which you have programmed to operate the garage door.

Garage door system with a fixed code: indicator lamp 1 lights up green.

Garage door system with a rolling code: indicator lamp 1 flashes green.

The transmitter will transmit a signal as long as the button is pressed. The transmission is halted after a maximum of ten seconds and indicator lamp 1 lights up yellow. Press button 2, 3 or 4 again if necessary.

Clearing the memory

Turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock.

Press buttons 2 and 4.

The indicator lamp lights up yellow.

Press and hold buttons 2 and 4 until the indicator lamp turns green.

Make sure that you clear the memory of the integrated garage door opener before selling the vehicle.
