Question about 2001 Toyota Sequoia
I bought a used Sequoia and i didnt get the owners manual... however i have been trying many different ways to program the remote of the vehicle and i just cant do it... please help
Turn the key to the "ON" position; do not start the vehicle.
Press on the button of the 3 available to you on the vehicle and hold it until advised to release it.
Take your garage door remote transmitter, and press the button that you use to make the garage door operate, hold it down until advised to release.
With the vehicle button being depressed, and the remote button depressed, hold the remote up against the area where the 3 buttons are located. It needs to touch the area wher the buttons are.
Keep moving the remote around slowly, back & forth, spin the remote, until the red light starts to blink slow.
After the light begins to blink slow, hold the remote in that exact position until the lamp blinks real fast.
Relase both buttons.
Repeat for a second remote on another button.

Tips for a great answer:
So, you get out your remote control to your garage door opener and, then get your owners manual to your new car. You need to follow the instructions from the manufacturer to be able to program the remote control to the car.
Ok, you have followed the instructions from the car manufacturer and you press the button for the garage door to go up.......and nothing happens. So, then you think you have missed a step on the programing. Well, what most instruction manuals leave out is the step from programing the car/truck/van to the garage door machine itself. On the back side of your garage door opener is a panel called the logic board. The logic board is the computer or brain of the machine. Most new garage door openers now are a mulit-code machine. By that, i mean it uses several signals each time you press the button on your remote control. This is for security, so your code can't be stolen by a code-grabber.
Now, comes the step of programing the vehicle to your garage door opener. Once you have followed the instructions of programing your vehicle, you now have to "teach" the car to the garage door opener. You will need some help doing this. You will have to get someone to press the button in your vehicle and hold it down, while someone else has to press the learn button on the back your your garage door opener mounted on the ceiling. The learn button on the back of your machine will be square if using a liftmaster machine. Craftsman, Liftmaster, Chamberlain are all the same. Their learn buttons are square, and usually are yellow, red/orange, or purple. If using a Genie, it has a button that says "learn button".
The person pushing the button on the machine will only have to push and release the learn button. DO NOT hold this button down. If you do, it erases all of the programing in the machine, and you have to re-program all the remote controls that you have. You will have to read my other hub to find out how to do that. You will probably say a few words you shouldn't either. :-) Programing the vehicle to the machine only takes a second, and when the machine accepts the code, the light bulb on the machine should flash for a brief moment, and you should hear audible click. Yep, it's that easy! I dont know why the auto makers leave that step out. Anyway, i hope this helps, and if you have any questions.. leave them in my comments and i will try to walk you through it. See the photo above and you will see the typical logic board...the square red/orange learn button is easy to see. Just remember to press and release
