Question about Volvo S80
NOTE: As a security precaution, the HomeLinkâ® Universal
Transceiver is designed to not function if the car has been locked from
Programming the transceiver
1. Begin by erasing all 3 factory default channels by holding down the two outside buttons (buttons 1 and 3 in the illustration above) on the HomeLinkâ® Universal Transceiver until the indicator light on the transceiver begins to flash, after approximately 20 seconds. Release the buttons.
2. Hold the end of your hand-held transmitter 2 to 5 in. (5 to 12 cm) away from the HomeLinkâ® surface, keeping the indicator light in view. For placement questions, please contact HomeLinkâ® at 1-800-355-3515 (Internet: www.HomeLink.jci.com).
3. Using both hands, simultaneously push the hand-held transmitter button and the HomeLinkâ® button to be programmed. Do not release the buttons until this step has been completed. The HomeLinkâ® indicator light will begin to flash, first slowly, then rapidly. When the indicator light flashes rapidly (indicating that the HomeLinkâ® button has been successfully programmed), both buttons may be released.
The remaining two HomeLinkâ® buttons can be programmed in the same way.
If, after several attempts, you do not successfully program the HomeLinkâ® Universal Transceiver to learn the signal of the hand-held transmitter, refer to the section "Programming rolling codes" or call the toll-free customer assistance number: 1-800-355-3515 (Internet: www.HomeLink.jci.com).

After searching online, this is the answer I found. I have not tried it yet. I'll give it a try as no one has come up with an answer and it seems to conform to the available buttons on the visor.
Reprogramming a single HomeLinkâ® button
1. Press and hold the desired HomeLinkâ® button. Do not release the button until step 3 has been completed.
2. When the indicator light begins to flash slowly (after approximately 20 seconds), position the hand-held transmitter 2 to 5 in. (5 to 12 cm) away from the HomeLinkâ® surface.
3. Press and hold the hand-held transmitter button. The HomeLinkâ® indicator light will begin to flash, first slowly then rapidly. When the indicator light flashes rapidly, release both buttons.
The previously programmed device has now been erased and the new device can be activated by pressing the HomeLinkâ® button that has just been programmed. This procedure will not affect any other programmed HomeLinkâ® buttons.
â· Retain the original transmitter(s) for future programming procedures (i.e., if you purchase a new car).
â· It is also suggested that if you sell your car, the programmed channels on the HomeLinkâ® Universal Transceiver be erased for security purposes.

Tips for a great answer:
The instructions in the owner's manual are correct, but after following them, my garage door installer and I discovered a few quirks and fixes for them.
It is important to park the Touareg in front of the garage door. Be careful not to park underneath it.
If your remote garage door transmitters are already programmed to your door opener, you need to do the following steps:
1. On the garage door opener itself, there is a learn button. Press and hold down the learn button until the learn indicator light goes out (approx. 6 seconds). (The learn button is near the antenna on your door opener.) By doing this, you have just reset the codes. At this point your remote door transmitters will most likely not work. This is o.k.
2. In the Touareg, press and hold whichever homelink button you want to program until the light above the homelink buttons slowly blinks. Continue to hold the button in and at the same time, hold your remote transmitter underneath the map lights and press the button. Continue to press both buttons until the homelink light rapidly flashes. Let go of both buttons.
3. You now have 30 seconds to press the learn button on your garage door opener. Press it once. The light will start to blink.
4. Go back to the Touareg, press and hold the homelink button you just programmed for 3 seconds until you get a blinking light. Repeat again. This time, it should open or close the door. The homelink button is now programmed.
5. Now that the homelink button is programmed, you now have to re-program your remote transmitters. Take the transmitters with you.
6. On the garage door opener, press the learn button, the light will blink. Now press the button on the remote transmitter. The light should stop blinking. Repeat the step if you have more than one transmitter. You should be all set. The homelink button should work in the Touareg and your remote transmitter(s) should also work.
In summary, the rolling codes in the door opener receiver have to be reset. For some reason, the Touareg has to be programmed FIRST. Then the remote transmitter units. If the remote transmitter units are already programmed, you will most likely not be able to program the homelink in the Touareg for a rolling code door opener.
