How to program the garage door opener
Hold down the 2 outer buttons until the red light flashes (20-30 seconds) and release.
Select one of the 3 buttons you want to program and press that button.
Hold the handheld transmitter 1-2 inches from the visor transmitter.
Using 2 hands, press and hold the button on the handheld remote and the visor remote at the same time.
Continue to hold both buttons until the red light on the universal transmitter flashes first slowly then rapidly.
Release both buttons when the rapid flashing begins.
The transmitter is now programmed.
Note that if the remote doesn't open the garage door, your opener may have a "rolling code" or "code protected " feature.
If your opener has a rolling code feature then you will have to train the opener to accept the visor transmitter. See the owners manual for the opener.
I hope this helps you out. I do not have this feature in my car, I took the instructions from a ford manual. The manual also gives a phone number to call if you have problems 1-800-355-3515 (Homelink). I don't know if this number is still good or not. It can't hurt to try it out. Good Luck!
