Doktir's answer was not specific to the Buick Riviera.
sphakitas, You have to press down on the two outer buttons for 20 seconds untill you see the lights flash really fast; then let go. This will de-program (or erase a previous owner's transmitter code.) now at the same time, hold down the button you want programed and your garage door opener. May take up to one minute. when you see the light change, it's confirmed.

You'll need to open the transmitter in the car and match the frequency to the garage door reciever, assuming you have the fob for the garage door, opening this will reveal a set of tiny switches. This combination is the frequency you need. Open the transmitter in the car, and place all of it's switches in the same position as in the fob. If this doesnt work, then the governing frequency isn't the same and there's not much you can do. Hope this helps!

How can i program my garage door opener in my 2007 dodge gran caravan


Below are the steps to program your garage door opener/Homelink on your vehicle. Try these steps first but if the vehicle has been programmed before there is another set of steps to use but this should work. If you need an owners manual for your vehicle feel free to email me csautomotivecars@att.net with your make, model and year. I will be happy to email you a copy and no there isn't a cost for it. If you have a size limits on downloads on your email program just to let you know this is a large file as far as owners manuals go (17MB). Just a heads up if you want the owners manual. I hope this helps.....

How do you program garage door transmitter


Look in the owners manual to find the proper sequence. Your garage door opener must be compatible with this new technology. Your opener should have a code learn button on it that must talk to your vehicle for it to work

owner manual has instructions. Your garage door opener changes codes every time it is used so you need to push a button on your door motor and then run back to car to program while the door motor is willing to accept programming.
