We recently bought a used 98 SLK-230. As I was going through the features and setting things up, I gave a try at programming the integrated garage opener near the rear view mirror.

(The opener I'm using is a 98 Genie Intellicode.)

After following the instructions (clear the memory, hold any one of the 3 buttons down until the amber light flashes in 1 sec. intervals; hold said button down while holding/pointing the opener remote against the integrated unit; press remote button until the 1 sec. flashing becomes rapid flashing; voila, programmed) I found that every thing occured as mentioned in the manual except that the integrated unit doesn't open the door.

Two questions out of this: Has this been seen before; Is the "remote unit" depicted in the manual assumed to be the homeowners one or a remote supplied by Mercedes?

In progress over this with dealer.

Thanks in advance if you have anything to add

We have had the same problem with trying to program the integrated transmitter with the Genie garage door opener. It seems that the some of the Genie openers have a special code that is incompatible with the integrated unit in the car

I'm not really familiar with this system, but most good garage openers use some sort of rotating code. Every time the opener is used it switches frequency for the next time. Without having the algorithms no other unit knows where to go (security feature - to keep thieves with scanners from intercepting your code for future use).

I presume the MB feature can only reproduce a single frequency. Just a guess.

I just purchased a 2001 CLK430 and a brand new Genie Opener. We had no problems getting the Genie to work. The insutructions in the 'tomes of knowledge' are a little screwy, but if you follow them closely, they will work. I recommend highly (as does the manual) having a partner help you out.

Essentially, you set up the integrated opener to 'learn' and then you 'teach it' the rolling code stuff using the teach/learn button on the opener. Our worked the very first time we tried it.

the only thing I'm dissapointed in is the range that is much, much shorter than the handheld unit.

Have you made sure that the '98 SLK can learn rolling codes ?

Thanks for your responses.

It seems that there is an extra thing to do with the "learn" button on the opener itself.

If you also have had problems with your integrated opener, you can find the proper coding instructions at
