Built in Garage door opener and rolling code garage doors

Anyone who ordered the built in garage door opener for their SLK and who has a rolling code garage door (like me) will find it does not work and Mercedes are not much help.

Their garage door operators only work with standard 433MHZ garage door openers so anyone with a more modern "rolling code" garage door opener (ie the code changes every time it is pressed for security) will find it will not work.

There is a solution however. You need to order a Universal receiver from

and add this to your garage door motor. It then works fine. Costs about 45 Euros.

I don't know if openers are different in the UK, but I have two rolling-code garage door openers and I didn't have any problem programming my SLK. The manual told me how to do it. Basically, after doing the normal programming step I had to climb a latter in the garage and press the learning button on the opener. Then I had 30 seconds to get back in the car and press the appropriate button for a couple seconds. It has worked fine, since.
I don't have any suggestions for increasing the range, but mine works from about 70 ft. or so. That's the farthest I've ever tried it, actually, when pulling up to the mailbox.

Not sure why I would want to use it with the car shut off. When I leave the house the car is in the garage and I use the hardwired opener. When I come home I open the door while in motion and drive right in the garage.
