Question about 2000 Mercedes-Benz SLK
I don't have manual since I lost it. Can someone post how to program the garage door opener.
WARNING: A garage door opening system that cannot stop or reverse itself after detecting an object in its path does not meet current federal safety standards. To decrease the risk of serious injury or death, do not use the universal transmitter with a door opening system that lacks stop and reverse features as required by federal standards. This includes any garage door opening system manufactured before April 1, 1982.
CAUTION: During this procedure, the system that you are programming will be made to operate. Make sure that people or objects are clear of the garage door or gate being programmed.
Press and continuously hold the button for 20 seconds. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT will be displayed (X will be 1, 2 or 3) during this time.
After 20 seconds, the display will read CHANNEL X TRAINING to indicate training has started.
Release the channel X button. Training is complete.
NOTE: To train a garage door opener (or other rolling code-equipped devices) with the rolling code feature, follow these instructions after completing the learn mode.
Press and release the programmed universal transmitter button. Press and release the universal transmitter button a second time to complete the training process. (some garage door openers may require this procedure to be done a third time to complete the training.)
Press the button. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT is displayed.

The solution is in the owners manual.If you want to program the "homelink transmitter" in your car,you will need a remote unit for your garage door opener to do this.It is fairly easy and straightforward.I programmed my 07 Pac and it works great.Good luck!

remote controls trasmit frequencies. I believe you hold your home remote control device within 2" to 5" of the car's remote control buttons. You select one button in the car which you wish to use as the garage access remote, and press it simultaniously with the home remote control button long enough for the blinking light to go on and blinks for 5 seconds. Then you are programmed. Test it to make sure it worked. If failed, try again. If it doesn't work, any Mercedes Dealership should do it for you FREE. Some of them now push for some money, but you tell them that you called Mercedes and based on your zip code they said you should go to this dealership and it will be done for FREE! They will take care of it immediately.

Tips for a great answer:
So, you get out your remote control to your garage door opener and, then get your owners manual to your new car. You need to follow the instructions from the manufacturer to be able to program the remote control to the car.
Ok, you have followed the instructions from the car manufacturer and you press the button for the garage door to go up.......and nothing happens. So, then you think you have missed a step on the programing. Well, what most instruction manuals leave out is the step from programing the car/truck/van to the garage door machine itself. On the back side of your garage door opener is a panel called the logic board. The logic board is the computer or brain of the machine. Most new garage door openers now are a mulit-code machine. By that, i mean it uses several signals each time you press the button on your remote control. This is for security, so your code can't be stolen by a code-grabber.
Now, comes the step of programing the vehicle to your garage door opener. Once you have followed the instructions of programing your vehicle, you now have to "teach" the car to the garage door opener. You will need some help doing this. You will have to get someone to press the button in your vehicle and hold it down, while someone else has to press the learn button on the back your your garage door opener mounted on the ceiling. The learn button on the back of your machine will be square if using a liftmaster machine. Craftsman, Liftmaster, Chamberlain are all the same. Their learn buttons are square, and usually are yellow, red/orange, or purple. If using a Genie, it has a button that says "learn button".
The person pushing the button on the machine will only have to push and release the learn button. DO NOT hold this button down. If you do, it erases all of the programing in the machine, and you have to re-program all the remote controls that you have. You will have to read my other hub to find out how to do that. You will probably say a few words you shouldn't either. :-) Programing the vehicle to the machine only takes a second, and when the machine accepts the code, the light bulb on the machine should flash for a brief moment, and you should hear audible click. Yep, it's that easy! I dont know why the auto makers leave that step out. Anyway, i hope this helps, and if you have any questions.. leave them in my comments and i will try to walk you through it. See the photo above and you will see the typical logic board...the square red/orange learn button is easy to see. Just remember to press and release
