Programming Mercedes-Benz Garage Door Opener

Before you get started:

Know if your remote uses a single code or rolling code system to open the garage doors. Most newer openers use rolling code which uses a new code every time the door is opened to prevent thieves from cloning your remote’s code over the airwaves.

What you need:

  • The handheld remote that already opens your garage.
  • Your Mercedes-Benz.

How To Program Your Mercedes-Benz Garage Opener Buttons:

  • Clear the three buttons inside the car:
    1. Turn on ignition until dashboard lights come on.
    2. Press and hold the first and second garage opener buttons for about 20 seconds until the light turns green.
  • Program first opener button:
    1. Press and hold the first button until the indicator light turns yellow, then release. The Indicator light will flash.
    2. Hold handheld garage remote within 1-6 inches of indicator light press button on remote until the light is green or flashes green. If it lights up red try again in a different position.

Repeat with subsequent buttons and garage doors.

If the indicator light is flashing green, that means your door uses a rolling code system and your Mercedes-Benz needs to synchronize with the opener. To do so use the following steps:

  1. Find training button/smart button on opener system, press it and return to car within 30 seconds.
  2. Press the appropriate in-car opener button and hold for two seconds, then release for two seconds. Repeat until the system operates the garage door.
