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.

They don;t work on the UK ones, Mercedes admitted it. Each country has a different frequency range programmed for the garage door. I dont think they are fitte dto all cars unless you have three buttons by the interior light
Yes you do lose the added security features of the rolling code but this is apparantly the only way to make them work in the UK
Mine is exactly the same, very poor range and wont work when the ignition is off
