You will have to locate the "learn code" button on you garage door opener. Press and release that button, then, within 30 seconds, press and hold the button on your vehicle and it will grab the code. If its a dip switch style motor then you can use an existing remote. take the remote inside you can and hold the button down while pushing your vehicles button and it will grab the code.

1. Position vehicle within 10 feet of garage door- engine off and battery on.

2. Press/hold 2 outside buttons of Homelink transceiver until red indicator starts flashing rapidly, then release button. This should take about 20 seconds. This erases any previously learned codes.

3. Press/hold remote control and press/hold button of Homelink transceiver simultaneously. Slowly move remote control from 5" away to 1" away from Homelink transceiver. Release both buttons after red indicator starts blinking rapidly. This should take about 5 seconds. I discovered that the Homelink in my TL is a bit faulty because it took much longer to accomplish this than when programming the Homelink in my MDX. My TL's Homelink may "unlearn" it's code in the future and the needed proximity of the TL to the garage door may be much closer than desired until I get the Homelink fixed.

4. Press training button on garage door opener unit until the indicator lights illuminates- this should be immediate.

5. Within 30 seconds press/hold the Homelink button for 2-3 seconds until the red indicator starts flashing rapidly. Repeat a second time. It should now be programmed. Check it by pressing the programmed button on the Homelink receiver.

6. When programming more than 1 garage door opener unit, disconnect power from unit before programming more units. By not doing this the programmed unit could conflict with the unprogrammed units commands.

Problems:

1. The Battery in the garage door remote may be too weak to program Homelink. However, the battery may be strong enough to operate the garage door. One of my remote controls had a weak battery- my system was installed today, fresh out of the box. I had to use the second remote control for the programming of Homelink on my 2 vehicles.

2. Antenna on the garage door opener unit must be hanging down, fully extended.

SOURCE: Program garage door opener.

press the two outside buttons at the same time. Hold while message reads "clearing codes"
Once you get a cleared message. hold the button that you want to program as your remote and press it down. The light will flash slowly. Take your remote in your other hand and hold it about 3 inches from your review mirror as close to the windsheild as possible. You must do this as soon as you press your designated button on the panel. Hold until your green light starts flashing fast. Once it flashes fast it means you have programmed your button properly.

Suggestions - do not do this in front of your garage as you remote will make you door go up and down the whole time. Also - make sure your batteries are new in your remote so you get a good signal to your button. Last thing - if one remote does not work after a couple of tries - use another remote.

The light in my Homelink system does not come on. Therefore it cannot be programmed.


The following are steps to programming a rolling code door opener to the Homelink transmitter in the Touareg.

The instructions in the owner's manual are correct, but after following them, my garage door installer and I discovered a few quirks and fixes for them.

It is important to park the Touareg in front of the garage door. Be careful not to park underneath it. rolleyes.gif

If your remote garage door transmitters are already programmed to your door opener, you need to do the following steps:

1. On the garage door opener itself, there is a learn button. Press and hold down the learn button until the learn indicator light goes out (approx. 6 seconds). (The learn button is near the antenna on your door opener.) By doing this, you have just reset the codes. At this point your remote door transmitters will most likely not work. This is o.k.

2. In the Touareg, press and hold whichever homelink button you want to program until the light above the homelink buttons slowly blinks. Continue to hold the button in and at the same time, hold your remote transmitter underneath the map lights and press the button. Continue to press both buttons until the homelink light rapidly flashes. Let go of both buttons.

3. You now have 30 seconds to press the learn button on your garage door opener. Press it once. The light will start to blink.

4. Go back to the Touareg, press and hold the homelink button you just programmed for 3 seconds until you get a blinking light. Repeat again. This time, it should open or close the door. The homelink button is now programmed.

5. Now that the homelink button is programmed, you now have to re-program your remote transmitters. Take the transmitters with you.

6. On the garage door opener, press the learn button, the light will blink. Now press the button on the remote transmitter. The light should stop blinking. Repeat the step if you have more than one transmitter. You should be all set. The homelink button should work in the Touareg and your remote transmitter(s) should also work.

In summary, the rolling codes in the door opener receiver have to be reset. For some reason, the Touareg has to be programmed FIRST. Then the remote transmitter units. If the remote transmitter units are already programmed, you will most likely not be able to program the homelink in the Touareg for a rolling code door opener.

How do I program my garage remote in my 2003 es300 Lexus?


You probably need to program the garage door opener,not the car.I have only had to program the Craftsman opener in my garage once(our 2005 Grand Caravan has a built in opener)The opener should have a programming button(my Craftsman opener's button is under one of the light covers).It will probably have the programming instructions near the button(in TINY print).You will want to have ALL of your garage remotes handy(to make sure they all still work after adding the car's remote-some openers have a maximum number of transmitters allowed.

How do i program the garage door opener on my 2008


This issue resolves at the garage opener, itself. Later model openers use rolling code technology, which moves access code with each transmitter, on each use...

Read the directions on your opener (yes get a ladder and climb up there..) essentially the methodology is typically press button on new transmitter, and hold, then press programming button on the opener, and when the lights flash, release both, then test remote...

Read directions on your opener, as a very similar process EXCLUDES all prior transmitters...

Just moved, no garage remote, need to set the opener in my SUV.


The garage door opener is needed to use the HomeLink system that is in your vehicle. This design is so that no one can program theirs to gain access to your garage. You will have to obtain a working remote and it will have to be programmed at the garage door.

Program garage door opener in 2005 rx 330


There are 3 programmable Homelink buttons you can use for different remotes. Just to the right of the buttons there is an indicator light.

Decide which button you want to program. Point the none battery end of your remote 1"-3" away from the Homelink panel and press both the remote and desired Homelink button down and hold them down at the same time. After about 20 seconds, the Homelink indicator light will change from a slow flashing to a rapid flashing. You can then release both buttons,
If the garage door responds to the Homelink, your done! If not, your garage door uses a rolling codes transmitter and must be trained.
Find the training button on your garage door opener's transmitter (usually mounted on the ceiling). Press the training button and within 30 seconds press and release the programmed Homelink button twice. If the garage door opener operates, you're done! If not, press and release the Homelink button a third time and the garage door should respond. If it still does not, you may have a very old garage door opener with a none digital transmitter (like I did). In that case, you either need to buy a new opener or try to replace the transmitter with a modern digital unit (as I did). Advantage: cheaper than a whole new garage door opener.
Disadvantage: The newer openers incorporate safety features that my old opener does not have.

Program 2004 mercury mountainer garage opener


Verify the hand-held transmitter is operative.
Prepare for programming the universal transmitter by erasing all three channels (hold down the two outside buttons until the red light begins to flash [20-30 seconds]). Release both buttons.
Select one of the three universal transmitter channels to be programmed by pressing the desired button
Hold the end of the hand-held transmitter 25-51 mm (1-2 in) from the front surface of the universal transmitter so that the red light can still be seen
Use both hands to press the hand-held transmitter button and the desired button on the universal transmitter. Do not release either button.
Hold down both buttons until the red light on the universal transmitter flashes, first slowly and then rapidly. Release both buttons when the rapid flashing begins. The universal transmitter has successfully learned the new frequency signal and can be used in place of the hand-held transmitter(s).
If the hand-held transmitter appears to program the universal transmitter but does not open the garage door, the garage door opener may have a code protected or rolling code feature.
To operate, simply press the appropriate button on the universal transmitter. The red light is on while the signal is being transmitted.
IF THE GARAGE OPENER HAS ROLLING CODES---
program as above then------
Train the garage door opener receiver to recognize the universal transmitter.
Remove the cover panel from the garage door opener receiver.
Locate the training button on the garage door opener receiver. Location and color of the button may vary by garage door opener manufacturer. Refer to the garage door opener instruction manual or owner literature.
Press the training button on the garage door opener receiver for 1-2 seconds.
Press the programmed universal transmitter button for as long as the universal transmitter red light flashes (1-2 seconds). Release the button and re-press the button to confirm that the universal transmitter is trained to the receiver.
The garage door opener should recognize the universal transmitter.

Programming keyless remote for Neon 2004


There is a way to program a remote if there is already a valid remote. Unfortunatly if you don't have a valid remote the only way to get one programmed is at the dealership with their scan tool.

I have pasted directions for programming a remote if there is already a valid transmiter.


CUSTOMER PROGRAMMING For a customer to be able to program RKE transmitters themselves, at least one RKE transmitter must be programmed already. This procedure is to add additional transmitters. If all transmitters are lost, the DRB III® scan tool must be used to program the new transmitters.
  1. Insert the key into the ignition switch, and turn the ignition switch to the RUN position without starting the vehicle (allow chimes to stop).
  2. Using the RKE transmitter programmed to the RKE module, press and continuously hold down the UNLOCK button for 4-10 seconds.
  3. Within the 4-10 second time range, continue to hold the UNLOCK button and press the PANIC button. Both buttons may then be released. Upon the PANIC button being depressed, the message for customer programming mode will be transmitted to the RKE module.
  4. A chime will be heard to verify that the customer programming mode has been entered (allow 3 seconds to hear chimes).
  5. Press and release any button on each transmitter that is to be programmed to the RKE module, including any transmitters which were previously programmed to the RKE module (with a maximum of four possible). After each transmitter is successfully programmed, a chime will be heard to verify that successful programming of the transmitter has occurred.
  6. After thirty seconds, or upon the ignition switch being turned OFF, the RKE module will exit programming mode.
