Hello friends, i own a GLA45 2015 model without a key less go. I was wondering whether there is a way to be able to open/close my windows using my key! I tried but nothing works. Is it an extra feature that I don’t seem to have?
Thank you

I have a 250 and the same wish! If you hold the lock button on your remote for a long time, does it close the windows? If not, you probably (like me) don't have the "convenience package" option. I think it came bundled with premium leather in for the 250 in 2015. I confirmed via a VIN decoder that my car didn't come with that option.

Hello, i hold the lock/unlock button for a while but nothing happens! I thought this feature was a standard! Even my SLK 2007 model has it.

Looks like it was part of the "Interior Package" with leather and a few other things. It just feels like something that should be standard. I mean, I bet it's just a little bit of programming but I guess they have to build these packages up with stuff to make it seem like they're worth the money. For a Mercedes, wouldn't you expect basic stuff like this to be standard though? I didn't have to pay extra for it on my Audi, and that was in 2007!

If you ever find a way to add it easily, please stop back here and let us all know! I sure would like to have this feature again.

Pre-2020 models a number of items left out to hit an "entry level" price point it would seem. "The best or nothing" - nothing. :(

2020-on Benz has realized that a lot more folks at the other end of the target age spectrum are buying this vehicle and expect more from them.

I had a 2016 and now 2019 both 250. Both came with KEYLESS-GO and can open and close side windows and sunroof using the key flop. Per the owner's manual, this function works with the KEYLESS-GO.

operated using the SmartKey.

Of course, it works great with KEYLESS-GO, but the OP did mention they didn't have KEYLESS-GO. This option was available as an add-on as part of the "Interior Package" according to the 2015 GLA Equipment List dated 9/22/2014. So, I think those of us who don't see "Interior Package" on our original invoice or VIN decoder are just SOL for this feature (unless someone can figure out how to retrofit or hack or reprogram our cars, which would make me very :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D)!
