You only have a short time to get into program mode and push the remote button. there Should be a button on the garage opener as well, try having someone push the button on the garage door opener while you push the in car button. If that doesn't work your opener may not be compatible.
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!
Push and hold the two outer buttons until the LED flashes fast Approx (15 seconds) then hold your garage opener
up to the mirror or visor and push and hold any button 3 or 4 seconds
on the opener Now the Home Link is programed. With the car safely away
from the closing garage door find and push the garage openers
red programming button (on the motor assembly somewhere that gives you
about 30 seconds to push your cars home link button so the garage opener
learns the button you want to use for that door the other two buttons
can be programed for other doors or house light controler gate opener in
the same manner
First you need to program the car with garage door remote, then program the garage door unit to the car.
Hold Down garage door remote button and button of your choice in the car, the small light on the car will blink when it has learned it's code.
Then press program button on garage door unit , within 15 seconds press and hold the button in the car that you programmed , when the the light starts to blink again, it should work.
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.
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.

Push the button you want to use and hold until the light flashes rapidly.Then hold your remote that came with the garage opener close to the visor with the homelink button that was just flashing push the garage remote button untill the light begins to flash rapid again. Then get a ladder and push the learning button on the garage opener motor. Then within 20 seconds get in your car with the key on to the position just before starting the car and hold the button untill it flashes rapidly ....that should do it...that is how it was done for my 1999 528i
1. Press and hold the two outside garage opener buttons located on rear view mirror until the red LED light blinks (could be 20 sec.)
2. Press and hold the middle button on the rear view mirror while holding a garage door remote 1-3 inches away from the mirror and pressing the remote button. Do this until the blinking LED gets noticeably faster.
3. Once programmed - use the garage door opener on the mirror thru 3 cycles or more to verify.
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.
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
