My god, have you people never seen a car with a built-in garage door opener?
Hold down the button for the avalon's opener until the light starts flashing fast. When it does, hold the normal opener a few inches away and hold the button down for a few seconds. After that you should be able to just press the opener on the avalon again and the door should open/close.

What are you trying to do? The remote for the garage door opener is just put into the car you are driving. The car is not programed the remote is, and since you just put it the car your in there is nothing to do.

    You can not program a car to open your garage door. You need the remote that came with the garage door.

I have 2000 avalon. When my battery was dead, one door window was open. After having jump start, the window cannot be closed. And other door windows cannot be open either.

The doors/windows need to be re-programmed. Take your car to your Toyota service center and they will re-program the doors/windows.

Garage code

In my Audi, and in my mother's Avalon, you choose which of the buttons on the visor you want to use, hold it down, and while holding it, you aim your garage door opener at the visor and press the button. This allows the car's memory to scan the code that the opener sends, and programs it into the car's opener for the selected button.

Program a replacement key for a toyota avalon 2005

There is no way for u to program your own key, either a locksmith (not all can do the programing) or the dealer has to do it with a special electronic scan tool.
