The Mirror Tilt Program MUST be version coded on the late cars to work..See the dealer and have it version coded via the SDS aka Star

I don't know if this is the problem or not but on my 2005 E500, on the driver's door, the ride side mirror button must be pushed in to activate the reverse function. If left mirror button is in, the reverse function on the right mirror does not work.

Most do not charge for this unfortunately individual dealership discretion applies. Request that the shop foreman get involved to further cooperation.

I know this may sound stupid, but did try depressing the button that you would use to change the angle of the passenger side mirror? I thought I had the same problem, and found out that the passenger side mirror button had to be depressed in order for it to work. Let me know if this works for you.

I think in late 06 MBUSA started to remove the Parking Aid feature because of varied customer complaints (i.e.: mirror does not return to original upright position, etc.). As Mark mentioned reprogramming is available for the asking through Star Diagnosis (SDS).

You are probably (usually) right.

I personally turned mine off. I found it annoying when trying to get out of my garage...
