Activate the Mercedes me Adapter.

Our step-by-step guide shows you how to set up your personal access
to your Mercedes-Benz vehicle.

Initial activation.

Initial activation.

You can get your Mercedes me Adapter from your preferred Mercedes-Benz service partner, who will enable the service and assist with activation.

Firstly, ensure that

  • your vehicle is compatible with the Mercedes me Adapter,

  • you have a compatible smartphone, and

  • you have created a personal user account at www.mercedes.me.

Once these requirements are met, you can get your Mercedes-Benz service partner to link your vehicle to your Mercedes me user account.

Step 1: install app

The download symbol stands for downloading of the "Mercedes me Adapter" App.

You have a Mercedes me Adapter, and your Mercedes-Benz dealer has already linked your Mercedes me account? You can now install the Mercedes me Adapter App on your smartphone.

Step 2: log into app

The "Mercedes me Adapter" App is launched.

Launch the app and log in with your Mercedes me account. Follow the in-app instructions.

Step 3: insert Adapter

Insert the Mercedes me Adapter into the OBD2 socket in the vehicle footwell.

Insert the Adapter into your vehicle's diagnostic socket ("OBD2 socket"). You can use the supplied fastenings (sticker with Velcro fastener) to fasten the flap on the Adapter. The red LED on the Adapter then starts flashing.

Step 4: pair Adapter and smartphone via Bluetooth®

Add the device to the smartphone via Bluetooth.

You can connect your smartphone to the Adapter via Bluetooth® within the next three minutes. To do this, search for the device with the name "MB..." in your smartphone's Bluetooth® menu. The LED lights constantly if your vehicle is paired with the Adapter. Repeat the process if it takes more than three minutes.

Step 5: launch app

Launch the app and select "Start activation and add vehicle".

Then launch the app on your smartphone, log in with your Mercedes me user account if necessary, and select "Add new vehicle". Ensure that you have a stable internet connection. If you have already defined a vehicle in the app, activate "My vehicle" and select "Add another vehicle".

Step 6: start engine

Launch the app and select "Add new vehicle".

Now start your vehicle's engine to complete the installation when prompted to do so in the app. The vehicle data will then be determined and checked, and your preferred service partner saved on the Mercedes me Portal is copied to the app. Follow the in-app instructions until activation is complete. When prompted to do so in the app, switch off the engine and confirm that activation is complete.

Your vehicle has now been defined successfully, and you can use all of the Mercedes me Adapter functions.

Please add the supplementary sheet to your vehicle's Owner's Manual.
