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.)

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!
they make it possible for you to program your automatic garage door opener to open using them-'home link' the older ones (probably like yours)do not work with 'rolling code' door openers, but if you have an automatic door opener, you can try to program the controller to work with it.
This should be done by pushing the button on the garage door motor as you would program an opener, push the program button then push and hold the button on the visor for a few seconds then release, push again and door opener should operate.
Those are HomeLink buttons. You can program them to work in place of a garage door opener or other infrared device like that. Just pick one, hold it down, press the garage door opener button while aiming it at the visor, and then release the buttons. That allows you to use the visor button instead of a door opener.
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.
clear the 1-3 buttons on your visor by holding them down until you do not see the blinking light next to it ,after the light shuts off you can take your remote and aim it at the mirror or visor where your 3 buttons are located ,while holding down the button of your garage door opener press the button on you visor/mirror that you want to program it take a few minutes but it can also be programed from the opener smart button ,but you have to get the button in the car to learning mode first , you also can check your owners manual and it will also have information on how to program and also your car dealer can also do it for you when you get your oil changed! i hope i was able to help you and if i was helpful please leave me a nice rating thank you Sincerely glenn mayer
