Garage door opener

Important safety notes

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

Certain garage door drives are
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 or call one of the following telephone hotlines:
- USA: Mercedes-Benz Customer Assistance Center at
1-800-FOR-MERCedes
- Canada: Customer Service at 1-800-387-0100

Before programming the integrated remote WARNING
Before programming the integrated remote control to a garage door opener or gate operator, make sure people and objects are out of the way of the device to prevent potential harm or damage. When programming a garage door opener, the door moves up or down. When programming a gate operator, the gate opens or closes.

Do not use the integrated remote control with any garage door opener that lacks safety stop and reverse features as required by U.S. federal safety standards (this includes any garage door opener model manufactured before April 1, 1982). A garage door that cannot detect an object - signaling the door to stop and reverse - does not meet current U.S. federal safety standards.

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

Do not run the engine while programming the integrated remote control. Inhalation of exhaust gas is hazardous to your health. All exhaust gas contains carbon monoxide (CO), and inhaling it can cause unconsciousness and possible death. All exhaust gas contains carbon monoxide (CO), and inhaling it can cause unconsciousness and possible death.

– Release the transmitter button.

– Point transmitter button 6 of garage door remote control 5 towards the transmitter buttons on the rear-view mirror at a distance of 2 to 8 inches (5 to 20 cm).

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

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

Programming is complete if indicator lamp 1 lights up or flashes green.

– Release transmitter button 2, 3 or 4 on the integrated garage door opener and the transmitter button on garage door remote control 6.

If indicator lamp 1 lights up red:

– Repeat the programming procedure for the transmitter button. When doing so, vary the distance between the garage door remote control and the rear-view mirror.

If the indicator lamp flashes green after
If the indicator lamp flashes green after successful programming, the garage door system is operating on 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

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

Observe the safety notes when performing the rolling code synchronization.

You now normally have 30 seconds to initiate the next step.

– Press the previously programmed transmitter button of the HomeLink® integrated garage door opener repeatedly in succession until the door opens.

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.

These signals may not therefore last long enough for the integrated garage door opener to recognize the signal during programming.

Comparable with Canadian law, some U.S.

garage door openers also have a built-in "interruption".

If you live in Canada or have difficulties programming the garage door opener (regardless of where you live) when using the programming steps (see above), proceed as follows:

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

Indicator lamp 1 starts to flash yellow after a short period.

– Release the transmitter button.

– Press transmitter button 6 of the garage door remote control and hold for two seconds, then release for two seconds, then press again and hold for two seconds.

– Repeat this sequence on transmitter button 6 of the garage door remote control until indicator lamp 1 is green.

Repeat the process if indicator lamp 1 turns red.

– 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 transmission frequency of garage door remote control 5 (usually found on the reverse side of the remote control).
