Vehicle features and options

This chapter describes all standard, country-specific and optional features offered with the series. It also describes features and functions that are not necessarily available in your vehicle, e.g., due to the selected options or country versions. This also applies to safety-related functions and systems. When using these functions and systems, the applicable laws and regulations must be observed.

Integrated Universal Remote Control

Principle
The integrated Universal Remote Control in the interior mirror can operate up to 3 functions of remote-controlled systems such as garage door drives, barriers, or lighting systems.

General information
The Integrated Universal Remote Control replaces up to 3 different hand-held transmitters. To operate the remote control, the buttons on the interior mirror must be programmed with the de‐sired functions. The hand-held transmitter for the particular system is required in order to program the remote control.
Before selling the vehicle, delete the stored functions for the sake of security.
If possible, do not install the antenna of the re‐mote-controlled system, e.g. the garage door drive, near metal objects to ensure the best possible operation.

Safety information
Warning
The operation of remote-controlled systems with the integrated universal remote control, such as the garage door, may result in injury, for example, body parts becoming jammed in a garage door. There is a risk of injury or risk of damage to property. Make sure that the area of movement of the respective system is clear during programming and operation. Also follow the safety information for the hand-held transmitter.

    General information
    The battery of the hand-held transmitter must be fully charged at the time of programming to ensure an optimal range of the integrated universal remote control.
  1. Turn on the standby state.
  2. Initial commissioning:
    Press and hold the two outer buttons on the interior mirror simultaneously for approximately 10 seconds until the LED flashes green rapidly. This erases all programming of the buttons on the interior mirror.
  3. Press the interior mirror button to be programmed. The LED on the interior mirror will slowly begin flashing orange.
  4. Hold the hand-held transmitter for the system to be used for approx. 1 to 12 in/2.5 to 30 cm away from the buttons on the interior mirror. The required distance depends on the hand-held transmitter.
  5. Press and hold the button of the desired function on the hand-held transmitter.
    Canada: if programming with the hand-held transmitter was interrupted, hold down the interior mirror button and repeatedly press and release the hand-held transmitter button for 2 seconds.
  6. 6 The LED lights up green: programming completed. Release the button.
    • The LED flashes fast: programming is not complete.
      Press the button on the interior mirror for 2 seconds and release. Perform this procedure three times to complete the programming procedure.
      If the integrated universal remote control remains nonoperational, continue with the special features for change code wireless systems.
    • LED does not flash green after 60 seconds: programming not completed. Repeat steps 3 to 6.

To program other functions on other buttons, re‐peat steps 3 to 5.

A special feature of the rolling code wireless system
If you are unable to operate the remote-control‐led system after repeated programming, please check if the system to be controlled features a rolling code radio system.
Refer to the operating instructions for the system.
For systems with a rolling code radio system, the integrated Universal Remote Control and the system also have to be synchronized.
Please read the operating instructions to find out how to synchronize the system.
Synchronizing is easier with the aid of a second person.

Synchronizing the universal remote control with the system:

  1. Park the vehicle within range of the remote-controlled system.
  2. Program the relevant button on the interior mirror as described.
  3. Locate and press the synchronizing button on the system being programmed, e.g. at the garage gate. You have approx. 30 seconds for the next step.
  4. Hold down the programmed button on the interior mirror for approximately 3 seconds and then release it. If necessary, repeat this step up to three times in order to end synchronization. Once synchronization is complete, the programmed function will be carried out.

Reprogramming individual buttons

  1. Turn on standby state.
  2. Press and hold the interior mirror button to be programmed.
  3. As soon as the LED on the interior mirror flashes orange after approx. 20 seconds, release the button.
  4. Hold the hand-held transmitter for the system to be used for approx. 1 to 12 in/2.5 to 30 cm away from the buttons on the interior mirror. The required distance depends on the hand-held transmitter.
  5. Press and hold the button of the desired function on the hand-held transmitter. Canada: if programming with the hand-held transmitter was interrupted, hold down the interior mirror button and repeatedly press and release the hand-held transmitter button for 2 seconds.
  6. The LED can light up in different ways.
    •  The LED lights up green: the programming procedure is completed. Release the button.
    • The LED flashes fast: the hand-held transmitter was detected but the programming is not complete.
      Press the button on the interior mirror for 2 seconds and release. Perform this procedure three times to complete the programming procedure.
      If the integrated universal remote control remains nonoperational, continue with the special features for change code wireless systems.
    • LED does not flash green after 60 seconds: programming not completed. Repeat steps 3 to 6.

If the programming procedure is not completed, the previous programming will remain unchanged.
