There was a minor change for mine to work.. see below..

- you must park your Prius close to the gate opener, leaving it running (obviously not in the way of the gate closing)
- Hold the button the the mirror and then push your garage door remote button and hold until the light on the mirror starts to flasyh fast. THIS programs the button on the mirror, but not the garage opener - yet (this was key for me)
- locate the "learning button" on the opener itself
- press the "learning button" on your gate opener and then get back into the Prius within 30 seconds (more time than it sounds) and press the SAME Homelink button you just programmed above. I don't recall how long I held the pre-programmed button, but the light will flash as I recall.
- Then, when working the garage door, you may need to hold the mirror button for a good second for it to work - but I had tried for months to get mine to work, and finally after reading many posts, the above sequence worked on my 2008 Prius with my Lift Master, Security + rolling codes garage opener.

Just - program the button on the mirror with your remote FIRST.. the garage opener will not work.. then use the Learn button on the garage opener and the SAME BUTTON you just programmed.. and it worked great for me. Not programming the mirror button first will not work. Using only the Learn button will not work. You must program the mirror first with the remote, then use the learn button and the SAME button on the mirror. Hope this helps.

If you have difficulties reading the Toyota Prius Owner's Manual, perhaps you'll have better luck understanding this owner-created User Guide: http://john1701a.com/prius/prius-usergui…

The Homelink instructions, on page 38 of the above PDF by john1701a:
<quote>
Homelink
It is a set of buttons on the rear-view mirror available for custom programming, to supplement your other remotes.
Garage Door
To program a Homelink button on your mirror to open & close your garage-door, do the following:
1) If the mirror is off, turn it on. (The indicator light will be a steady green.)

2) Press the desired programmable-button (the left most three) on the mirror and continue holding it depressed throughout the entire programming process.

3) With the garage-door remote held close to the mirror, press the button on it repeatedly.

4) When the indicator light on the mirror changes to a rapid blinking red, stop pressing both the buttons on the mirror and the opener. Programming is complete.

5) Test the newly programmed Homelink button. Pressing it for 1 second will change the indicator light from a steady green to a steady red, which will instruct your garage door to open or close just like your garage-door remote.

* Note: this programming is only available for remotes with non-rolling security codes.
</quote>

It is possible that you don't get the button programming timiing done correctly on the first few tries, so try try again... If your gate does use a rolling code, you'll have to use your gate's "learn" mode to program your Prius' Homelink button as a new "remote," so have the owner's manual for your gate handy as well.

Some other Prius owners discuss their Homelink programming issues here:
http://priuschat.com/forums/care-mainten…

You can get more information about programming your particular model gate with your car's Homelink through the company's website:
http://www.homelink.com/programming/prog…

Good luck!

I have a LiftMaster as well and the last comment by filter4991 worked for me as well. My "learning button" was big and red and only needed to be pushed and released. There was a yellow LED light that lit up when I pressed the red button to enter learning mode. Within 30 seconds, I pressed the HomeLink button on my mirror and within a few seconds, the garage door lights flashed once indicating that it had received the code. The HomeLink button now works with my LiftMaster.
Thanks for the tips guys. I just scored some major brownie points with my wife.

Sinc garage door opener with a 2009 Hyundai Sonata


Take your remote and hold it up towards your rear view mirror or your visor whitchever is the one with 3 buttons of your homelink , also make shure that your opener has a program button which come in different colors depending on the year of the machine, if you have a program button on your powerhead of your garage door opener then you can mostlikely program your car to it! The button on garage door opener comes in different colors such as yellow,green ,orange, black, grey and black ! make shure your opener has one of these buttons! Now take your remote and point it within a few inches of your visor/rearview mirror and hold the button down that oppens that door....now press the first button on your car mirror/visor until the door opens up , it take sometimes a few trys but remember to leave your car running while doing this and have it outside the front of your garage door while doing this!

2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Opener Homelink Setup


**** >>> This setup I performed with my new 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Homelink and Chamberlain Garage Door Opener <<< ****

Chamberlain:
01. Power off or unplug the garage door opener motor power supply (which is mounted on ceiling of the garage) ;;;

02. keep the garage door opener transmitter in your hand (do not press any button at this time) ;;;

03. In your 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink button (which resides under rear view mirror) press the 1st and 3rd homelink button together for about 30-40 seconds (i.e., until the yellow light blinks fast) and when the yellow light next to the homelink button blinks fast release from pressing the (homelink) buttons ;;;

04. now hold the garage door opener transmitter closer (means within 2-4 inches) to the homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd) whichever you are planning to program to open the garage door ;;;

05. now press the garage door opener transmitter button and chosen homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd whatever you need) together ;;;

06. the yellow light (next to homelink button) initially may blink slowly but after few seconds (may be 10-20 seconds) will blink fast; once it started blinking fast release from pressing both garage door opener transmitter and homelink button ;;;

07. Now plug or power on the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) ;;;

08. On the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) press the "LEARN" button (once you press it may have yellow/orange color light; make sure the light is on) ; then within 30 seconds do the next steps #9, #10, #11 very carefully ;;;

09. go to your car and press the homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 1st iteration ;;;

10. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 2nd iteration ;;;

11. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 3rd iteration ** important note; generally three iterations are not necessary; and steps #9, #10, #11 must be performed within 30 seconds ** ;;;

12. during one of the iteration you will hear "CLICK" sound one-time from Garage door motor (which is mounted on ceiling) and if you have light attached with it; it will blink once (** if you hear the CLICK sound and/or light blinks once**) then the particular homelink button is programmed ;;;

13. now press the programmed homelink button; the garage door will open or close (but always it will take 3 or 4 blinks in yellow light or 2-3 seconds before the garage door opens or closes and which is normal) ;;;

** Thats it, your 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Opener Homelink setup is complete ** ;;;

You can program rest of the homelink button the same way but following from the steps between #4 and #13 ;;;

Hope this steps will help you to program chamberlain Garage door opener in 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink. ;;;


** possibly the above same steps may work with other BMW 5-series cars homelink too (but I'm not sure) **

Factory garage door opener


If this is the 3 button HomeLink Transmitter usually centered overhead above the rear-view mirror, this should work:

While the engine is turned off follow these steps to program up to three channels:
1. Decide which one of the 3 channels (one of the 3 HomeLink buttons) you want to program.
2. Press & hold the desired button through step 3.
3. When the HomeLink indicator light begins to blink slowly(this may take up to 30 seconds), hold your hand-held garage door remote about 1 to 3 inches away from the buttons & then press and hold the button on your garage door remote. Continue to hold both buttons until the indicator light on the HomeLink begins to flash rapidly(this may take up to 90 seconds).

If it still doesn't work, make sure the batteries in your garage remote are not weak, and try again moving the remote back & forth and left & right or turning it upside down while programming.

Also note HomeLink will not work with older garage door openers, especially not with ones manufactured before April 1st 1982.

Deactivating the garage door opener


If you hold the 1st and 3rd botton down in your honda built in remote for aprox. 60 seconds or until the light next to the bottons goes out, this will erase the program from the car. You shouldn't have to mess with you garage door opener at all.
