I’ve looked everywhere for “auto lock” and I don’t think my 2014 SLK 350 has that feature. Another problem I’m having is called solvent popping. There are spots all over the car especially on hood and trunk lid. The problem seems to only be with cars painted Mars Red. I missed the warranty coverage by 4 months and MB won’t do a thing about it. They know there was a problem with this run of red cars which can be found on the web. Not just SLK but any model that was painted Mars Red that day or days. Their official body shop estimated a complete re-paint ~$7600. They won’t let me pay for part of it. No deal. I’m not real pleased with MB.
When you say “auto-lock”, do you mean the feature where the doors lock, as soon as you start driving? So you are driving with the locked doors?
No. When I say auto lock I get out of the car and walk away and in a matter of seconds the car locks itself. I have a 2016 Caddy that does just that and I love it. Thanks and did you ever hear of my paint problem before?
Mercedes got rid off this feature a long time ago, I guess they had a lot of problems with keys being self-locked inside the car. The only programmable Auto-Lock feature that you have is to self-lock when the speed of your car is over 10 mph. This way your car will stay locked, while you stop and go, and nobody can get inside your car. However your car WILL self-lock if: you unlock your doors… but don’t open them. The car will think that you pressed the button by mistake.. and then self-lock after about 90 sec.
If you want to add automatic self-locking feature, you can add some kind of aftermarket key-less entry add-on system, which is very inexpensive. But then you have to be careful to not lock your keys inside by accident or during towing.
Hi! can you watch a movie and get sounds using the car speaker instead of thru headphones only on the GLE400? Thanks!
Are you asking about the rear seat entertainment system? You need to use the headphones, because the driver wants to listen to radio at the same time. This way you don’t bother each other.
Hi, I’ve a 2016 Mercedes C Class W205. My IPhone is sync’ to car but am finding it difficult to receive Text messages. I’ve followed your Tutorial on this but my Message Icon is not highlighted. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated. On all of your Tips I’ve only known One and that was Single Door Opening. Great site. My Grandson is a Mercedes After Sales Apprentice and I’ve forwarded your Website address to him which I know he will follow.
If you have iPhone, go to your Bluetooth settings and find your car – usually says “MB Phone”, or something similar. Then touch little “i” on the right. Then on the new open screen switch “Show Notifications” on. Then you should be able to receive text messages.
First, you and your videos are awesome and very helpful. I’ve learned so much from you about my 2014 ML350. One question I have is can I insert a push start button in my turn key button, to convert to push start? I ask because in one of your videos you removed the push start button and inserted the key and turned the car on.
Your ML must be equipped with Keyless Go feature. The way to check if you have it – is to look at your exterior door handle, If your exterior door handle has a button to lock/unlock – then you can add the missing push button.
Hi, great video’s. I’ve just bought a S350 2012 my first Mercedes. my trunk will open with key fob but does not close unless I close it with my hands any tips you know.
Probably your car doesn’t have an electric trunk option. So it will still pop-open mechanically (not electrically) when you hit trunk unlock, but obviously it will need to be closed manually.
I have 2 questions for my GLE350 2016 where is the Sim card slot in the car for wifi because I move to overseas with my car and I could not use that features and
How can I update me car to the Middle east navigation system and how much would it cost
Also what’s the best options? Thanks
There is no WiFi sim card. You can use your cell phone as a WiFi point, or Premium MB Apps that you have to pay for separately. I’m not sure how to update Navi outside the U.S. The best thing is to visit your local MB Dealer service department.
