Question about 1997 Buick Riviera
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!
