I have a question, the SLK230 R170 pre-facelift model in the United States is this car also equipped with the IR remote control to open the doors, or is it a radio remote control?

The reason of my question is, my SLK230 R170 from 1997 (pre-facelift model in Europe) is equipped with the IR remote controle system, i like to replace it with a radio remote controle system, i want to know is this modification possible and who has done this before?

Thanks for reading/answer my question.


Franky. ;)


btw, sorry for my Englisch i am not from the States... :usa:

That's a little offtop, but you'd better keep your IR trinket, because it is immune to code grabbers. It's much safer.
Thanks for the information, but that's the only good thing about an IR remote, in my eyes this is useless because:

1 - It only works up to 4 meters away from the car.
2 - its impossible to expand the system with an additional trunk release.
3 - The IR remote has only one big button to open / close
4 - it is impossible to make the roof module working with the remote.

This is wy i want to change the IR remote system to working with radio remote system
