Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I don't have a manual for my car and I want to program the garage door remote in the car. How?
First you have to clear any codes in there.
Hold down the outer 2 buttons until the red light blinks, could take a minute or less.
Then release the buttons, hold your garage door opener close to the button you want to program.
hold down the button on the garage door opener and the programing button until you get a blink from the little red light. That's it

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.
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.

WARNING: A garage door opening system that cannot stop or reverse itself after detecting an object in its path does not meet current federal safety standards. To decrease the risk of serious injury or death, do not use the universal transmitter with a door opening system that lacks stop and reverse features as required by federal standards. This includes any garage door opening system manufactured before April 1, 1982.
CAUTION: During this procedure, the system that you are programming will be made to operate. Make sure that people or objects are clear of the garage door or gate being programmed.
Press and continuously hold the button for 20 seconds. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT will be displayed (X will be 1, 2 or 3) during this time.
After 20 seconds, the display will read CHANNEL X TRAINING to indicate training has started.
Release the channel X button. Training is complete.
NOTE: To train a garage door opener (or other rolling code-equipped devices) with the rolling code feature, follow these instructions after completing the learn mode.
Press and release the programmed universal transmitter button. Press and release the universal transmitter button a second time to complete the training process. (some garage door openers may require this procedure to be done a third time to complete the training.)
Press the button. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT is displayed.

What the last guy post is correct, but you have to tel your car what kinda remote you have. Assuming you have homelink Which 95 percent of the cars do ill give you a very short version on how to do this. First thing you need to do is clear the code in your car from any other owners. Do do this turn your car's key to the on or acc non running position. Press and hold the first and last button. Untill the light reacts different ether starts flashing or flashes faster etc. Then you need to get one of your remotes. Press and hold the button you want to set in your car and press your remote button at the same time untill the light reacts diferent. Mind you hold your garage remote as close to your car remote as you can. Then finally Find your learn button on your garage door opener it's self it can be in the back or the front if its in the front you have to remove the cover press the button once DO NOT HOLD IT. then go to your car and press the button you set for about 2 seconds and repet 1-2 more times untill your garage door moves. Make sure nothing is in the way of the garage door. (I know that should go with out saying.)

Depending on the name brand of the garage door opener, there is a button on it you press and you have about 30 seconds to set the button in the car to the signal. Read you car manual on how to set the visor opener, probably press and hold the button in after pressing the button on the garage door opener motor. Get someone to help you in the garage on a ladder. Mine is a Sears and this is how it works.

Tips for a great answer:
So, you get out your remote control to your garage door opener and, then get your owners manual to your new car. You need to follow the instructions from the manufacturer to be able to program the remote control to the car.
Ok, you have followed the instructions from the car manufacturer and you press the button for the garage door to go up.......and nothing happens. So, then you think you have missed a step on the programing. Well, what most instruction manuals leave out is the step from programing the car/truck/van to the garage door machine itself. On the back side of your garage door opener is a panel called the logic board. The logic board is the computer or brain of the machine. Most new garage door openers now are a mulit-code machine. By that, i mean it uses several signals each time you press the button on your remote control. This is for security, so your code can't be stolen by a code-grabber.
Now, comes the step of programing the vehicle to your garage door opener. Once you have followed the instructions of programing your vehicle, you now have to "teach" the car to the garage door opener. You will need some help doing this. You will have to get someone to press the button in your vehicle and hold it down, while someone else has to press the learn button on the back your your garage door opener mounted on the ceiling. The learn button on the back of your machine will be square if using a liftmaster machine. Craftsman, Liftmaster, Chamberlain are all the same. Their learn buttons are square, and usually are yellow, red/orange, or purple. If using a Genie, it has a button that says "learn button".
The person pushing the button on the machine will only have to push and release the learn button. DO NOT hold this button down. If you do, it erases all of the programing in the machine, and you have to re-program all the remote controls that you have. You will have to read my other hub to find out how to do that. You will probably say a few words you shouldn't either. :-) Programing the vehicle to the machine only takes a second, and when the machine accepts the code, the light bulb on the machine should flash for a brief moment, and you should hear audible click. Yep, it's that easy! I dont know why the auto makers leave that step out. Anyway, i hope this helps, and if you have any questions.. leave them in my comments and i will try to walk you through it. See the photo above and you will see the typical logic board...the square red/orange learn button is easy to see. Just remember to press and release
