hello and help already

Greetings everyone. I just took delivery of a 2012 S350, am loving the car so far though I'm a little overwhelmed by all there is to know, but my immediate concern is getting home link to work with my garage door opener. I've read the manual and watched You Tube videos multiple times and both seem to indicate that one of the initial steps is holding one of the transmitter buttons down until it blinks amber, indicating it's in training mode. I can't get past this step. Holding the button down makes the light simply go from solid amber to solid green and it won't accept any communication from the door remote. Calls to corporate Mercedes simply yielded a recorded version of the manual and the dealership says they'll check to see if there's a software update.

If I've posted in the wrong place, I apologize...just direct me to the right forum.
Thanks for any help/advice,
Steve

Update: There's an error in the MB manual. Their directions say to "press and hold one of the transmitter buttons." Do that and the light switches from solid amber to solid green and never blinks indicating it's trainable. What it should have said is "press and release." I did that and all is well. Multiple wasted hours.
