Important safety notes

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.

You can use the HomeLinkЃ garage door opener integrated into the rear-view mirror to operate up to three different gate/garage door opener systems.

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. You can also contact the following service hotlines: R USA

WARNING
Only press the button on the integrated garage door opener if there are no persons or objects present within the sweep of the garage door. Persons could otherwise be injured as the door moves.

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

To achieve the best result, insert new batteries in garage door remote control 5 of your garage door drive before programming.

Delete the memory of the integrated remote control  before programming it for the first time.

Turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock.

Press and hold transmitter button 2, 3 or 4.

After a short time, indicator lamp 1 will start flashing. It flashes approximately once per second.

Indicator lamp 1 flashes immediately the first time that the transmitter button is programmed. If this transmitter button has already been programmed, indicator lamp 1 will only start flashing at a rate of once a second after 20 seconds have elapsed.

Continue to hold the transmitter button.

Point transmitter button 5 of garage door remote control 6 towards the transmitter buttons on the rear-view mirror at a distance of 2 to 12 inches (5 to 30 cm).

The distance between garage door remote control 5 and the integrated garage door opener depends on the system of the garage door drive. Several attempts might be necessary. You should test every position for at least 20 seconds before trying another position.

Keep transmitter button 6 on garage door remote control  5 pressed until indicator lamp 1 starts to flash rapidly.

The programming has been successful if indicator lamp 1 flashes rapidly.

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

If indicator lamp 1 goes out after approximately 20 seconds and has not flashed rapidly:

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

Repeat the procedure for the other transmitter buttons. When doing so, vary the distance between the garage door's remote control and the transmitter buttons in the rear-view mirror.

If the garage door system works with a rolling code, you must synchronize the remote control integrated in the rear-view mirror with the garage door system receiver after programming.

You will find further information in the garage door opening system's operating instructions, e.g. the sections on "Synchronizing the transmitter" or "Registering a new transmitter". You can also call the hotline mentioned above.

Synchronizing the rolling code

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.

Observe the safety notes when performing the rolling code synchronization .

Turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock.

Press the programming 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 30 seconds 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 remote control to recognize the signal during programming.

Comparable with Canadian law, American 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, proceed as follows:

Keep the transmitter button (2, 3 or 4) depressed until the integrated remote control has been set up successfully.

At the same time, press transmitter button 6 of the garage door remote control for two seconds, then release it for two seconds, then press it again for two seconds.

Repeat this sequence on transmitter button 6 of the garage door remote control until the frequency signal has been saved.

If the setup procedure is successful, indicator lamp 1 flashes once slowly and goes out after a few seconds.

Continue with the other programming steps (see above).

Problems when programming

If you have problems when programming the integrated remote control, please note the following:
Х Check the transmitter frequency of garage door remote control 5 (which can usually be found on the back of the remote control).

The integrated remote control is compatible with devices that have units which operate in the frequency range of 280 to 390 MHz.

Х Replace the batteries in garage door remote control 5. This increases the probability of garage door remote control 5 sending a strong and more precise signal to the integrated remote control on the rear-view mirror.

Х When programming, hold garage door remote control 5 at varying distances and angles from the transmitter button which 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.

Х If there is another garage door remote control for the same device, perform the programming steps again using that garage door opener. Before performing these steps, make sure that new batteries have been inserted in the garage door remote control.

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

Once programmed, the integrated remote control will assume the function of the garage door system's remote control. Please also read the operating instructions for the garage door system.

Turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock.

Press transmitter button 2, 3 or 4 on the integrated remote control in the rearview mirror that is programmed to operate the garage door.

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

Garage door system with rolling code: indicator lamp 1 flashes briefly and then lights up for approximately two seconds.

This is repeated for up to 20 seconds.

The transmitter will transmit a signal for as long as the transmitter button is being pressed. The transmission will be halted after a maximum of 20 seconds and indicator lamp 1 will flash. Press the transmitter button again, if necessary.

Clearing the remote control memory
