|Padgett||Dunno but took two passes to program to my Genie Xcellerator: first had to sync with opener (button on opener) and then had to sync with remote unit. Working fine now.|

Hope this helps.

|MrPid||This is an older thread but still seems active. I've read it all but still can't get mine programmed to my 2005 slk350. In my case I'm in a condo and we just updated our gate to use a FOB. Not sure if it's possible to program the FOB to it or if I have to contact the outfit that installed it, Thanks|

Also, the Canadian manuals have a slightly different instruction so be sure to read carefully.
Glad you guys have it sorted.

Many many thanks, Dave.

It is also important I feel to clear all history before beginning. It has been a while but I recall you hold the two outside buttons until you get a flashing light.
That being said, the current CLA45 AMG will NOT program to the gate to my complex. I have tried and the guy who manages this for the condo has tried on my car and his Lexus to no avail and we have to use the regular opener hardware.

Some receivers are incompatible with the MB system.
My garage door is a breeze to program but the entry gate will not program. A neighbour has the same problem with his Lexus.
On the other hand cheap Chamberlain openers work fine.

|Dianne||I'm still trying. Getting real good at climbing up & down the dang ladder. I've tried everything. The car remote on the mirror does not flash anything but green. Solid orange and red light. No fast flashing. ARRGGHHHH Canadian remotes.........if you hear a loud scream it's ME!|

Ya....I started jumping off the ladder and moving into the car quicker so maybe that was it.
Anyway this builtin opener is really cool. Never would have figured it out on my own.
This forum is great. Thanks again.

|jbanks15||with a Chamberlain, the procedure usually requires the 2 person method|

I have an older LiftMaster Pro by Chamberlain. My 2003 SLK230 was parked in the garage directly under the opener. I printed and followed the instructions in post #1 including the rolling code because my opener has the "training button" with a green light. I tried many times, including clearing the car remote codes, to program the LEFT button in the car. It would not work.
The Chamberlain remote has 3 buttons and uses the RIGHT button to open the door....so....I tried to program the RIGHT button in the car and PRESTO....it worked!
The Chamberlain remote uses the center button to close the door so I tried to program the center button on the car and it took the codes the very first time.
I have no idea if switching buttons to match made any difference but now the car remote works like a charm.
You guys are the best Thanks a bunch.

It is super quiet and it will auto close if I forget to close. Great deal plus $120 to install.
I can't get it to program with 06 slk55 nor the 04 gx470. Called chamberlin. Got a repeater for $7 (shipping only). Got both cars to work in less than 1 minute each. I think the new door opener is security 2+. My old garage door opener was security +.
My 14 gx460 works without the repeater because it is newer.

i have tried all these instructions to the letter several times and I STILL cant program my lift-master gate opener - interestingly, it programmed fine to my 2012 gl550...
My gate opener has terminals for 3 separate frequencies - should i try to program another terminal (different frequency)?
