One of the great features available in many Mercedes-Benz vehicles is the garage door opener built right into the main mirror or the upper console. However, like any technology, it can be a challenge to fully integrate at first. Keep reading for our instructions on how to program the Mercedes-Benz Garage Door opener.
Programming Directions for the Mercedes-Benz Garage Door Opener
There are two basic types of garage door openers. The type that your garage door uses will determine how to program the Mercedes-Benz Garage Door opener in your new Mercedes-Benz vehicle. You can figure out which kind you have by opening up the battery compartment.
DIP Switch Transmitter
If your switch has tiny sliding levers, it is a DIP Switch transmitter and programming the Mercedes-Benz Garage Door opener should be straightforward. Just hold the working transmitter near the garage door buttons on your vehicle. Then, press the button on your vehicle until it works. Be sure that no one is under your garage door while you are programming it!
If your transmitter works with multiple doors and has multiple buttons, treat each button like a separate transmitter.
A Rolling Code transmitter is more complex and secure, but also harder to program. You can tell it is a Rolling Code transmitter if there are no sliding levers inside the transmitter. To program this transmitter, you should follow the steps from the DIP Switch transmitter. Then, you may have to program the Homelink Button into your opener.
For most openers, you should locate its “smart”, “training” or “learning” button (usually in the garage). Press that button, and then quickly return to your car and press for two seconds the Homelink button you want to connect to the garage door opener. After pressing for 2 seconds, release for two seconds. Repeat this up to three times. You will know it is working when your garage door begins moving. For this type of button, you should not use both the handheld transmitter and the Mercedes-Benz Garage Door opener.
