Try it again! i just did mine and it works. I took the remote and pressed the button on the remote the same time as the button in the car. It started blinking slowly and then rapidly as stated in the instructions. I then hit the learn button on the opener motor and pressed the car button two times. It works like a champ!

How do you program the garage door buttons in a 2009 Porsche 911


The control is made by HomeLink. You can find instructions on how to program your specific type of garage door here:

http://www.homelink.com/program

Here are the basic steps for a "Genie" garage door opener:

  1. For first time training, press and hold the two outer HomeLink buttons, releasing only when the HomeLink indicator light begins to flash, which may take up to 20 seconds. (Do not perform this step when training the additional HomeLink buttons.)
  2. Press the appropriate HomeLink button I, II or III which you want to train and keep holding it until the indicator light starts flashing slowly. Once the indicator light starts flashing slowly, you may release the button. HomeLink is now in "training mode."You will now have 5 minutes to train your hand-held transmitter to the HomeLink transmitter in the bumper.
  3. Stand in front of your vehicle with the original hand-held transmitter for the garage door opener (or other device) that you wish to train.The transmitter unit to be trained is located in the bumper about 4 inches to the left of the vehicle's center.
  4. Hold the original hand-held transmitter between 0-12 inches from your car's bumper. NOTE: The distance between the hand-held transmitter and the HomeLink transmitter unit in the bumper depends on the system being trained. It may require several attempts at different distances in order to pick up the signal.
  5. Now press and hold the button on your original garage door transmitter while keeping your fog lights in view. The fog lights will blink three times to indicate that the training has been successful.NOTE: If the training time exceeds the five minutes, the fog lights blink once. If this happens, you should repeat steps 2 to 5.
  6. Press and hold the trained HomeLink button and observe the indicator light.
    • If the indicator light is solid/continuous, training is complete and your device should activate when the HomeLink button is pressed and released.
    • If the indicator light blinks rapidly for 2 seconds and then turns a solid/continuous light, proceed with Steps 7-9 for a rolling code device. A second person may make the following steps easier. Please use a ladder or other device; do not stand on your vehicle to perform the next steps.
  7. At the receiver (motorhead unit) in the garage, locate the "learn" or "smart" button (usually near where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the unit). If there is difficulty locating the training button, reference the garage door opener's manual.
  8. Press and release the "learn" or "smart" button (the name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer). NOTE: Once the button is pressed, you have approximately 30 seconds to initiate the next step.
  9. Return to the vehicle and firmly press and hold the trained HomeLink button for two seconds and release. Repeat the "press/hold/release" sequence up to 3 times to complete the training process.

How do I setup the homelink feature in my 2000 chevy impala with my garage opener?


First clear it pushing the 2 outer buttons for about 20 seconds till the lite blinks.
Then here is the weird part take the old remote that you use for your garage door opener and hold it next to the home link in the car.
Push the button on your old remote then the button on the home link. the home link will flash slow then quickly (about 10 sec).
Now go push the learn button on the main door unit then back to the car and push the home link again for 2 seconds.

Having trouble setting garage door opener to my 2004 trailblazer


1. Position vehicle within 10 feet of garage door- engine off and battery on.

2. Press/hold 2 outside buttons of Homelink transceiver until red indicator starts flashing rapidly, then release button. This should take about 20 seconds. This erases any previously learned codes.

3. Press/hold remote control and press/hold button of Homelink transceiver simultaneously. Slowly move remote control from 5" away to 1" away from Homelink transceiver. Release both buttons after red indicator starts blinking rapidly. This should take about 5 seconds. I discovered that the Homelink in my TL is a bit faulty because it took much longer to accomplish this than when programming the Homelink in my MDX. My TL's Homelink may "unlearn" it's code in the future and the needed proximity of the TL to the garage door may be much closer than desired until I get the Homelink fixed.

4. Press training button on garage door opener unit until the indicator lights illuminates- this should be immediate.

5. Within 30 seconds press/hold the Homelink button for 2-3 seconds until the red indicator starts flashing rapidly. Repeat a second time. It should now be programmed. Check it by pressing the programmed button on the Homelink receiver.

6. When programming more than 1 garage door opener unit, disconnect power from unit before programming more units. By not doing this the programmed unit could conflict with the unprogrammed units commands.

Problems:

1. The Battery in the garage door remote may be too weak to program Homelink. However, the battery may be strong enough to operate the garage door. One of my remote controls had a weak battery- my system was installed today, fresh out of the box. I had to use the second remote control for the programming of Homelink on my 2 vehicles.

2. Antenna on the garage door opener unit must be hanging down, fully extended.

  1. NOTE: Following the previous step, there are 30 seconds in which to proceed.

Home link system program?


  1. Turn off the engine.
  2. Erase the factory test codes by pressing buttons 1 and 3. Release the buttons when the two green lights begin to flash (about 20 seconds ).
  3. Choose one of the three buttons to train. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter 1-3 inches (5-14 cm) away from the lower left corner of the EVIC display while keeping the display in view.
  4. Simultaneously press and hold both the desired Transmitter button and the hand-held transmitter button. After a short time, the message TRAINING will show on Transmitter display. Do not release the buttons until the message TRAINED appears on the display (this may take as long as 60 seconds ), release both the Transmitter and hand-held transmitter buttons.
  5. Press and hold the just-trained Transmitter button. TRANSMIT should appear on the display. If your device activates when the Transmitter button is depressed and released, programming is complete. To train the other buttons, repeat the process. Be sure to keep your hand-held transmitter in case you need to retrain the universal transmitter. NOTE: If the message TRANSMIT appears on the Transmitter display but your device does not activate, the device may be equipped with a "rolling code" system. Continue with steps six through eight below to complete the programming of a rolling code equipped device (most commonly a garage door opener).
  6. At the garage door opener receiver (motor-head unit) in the garage, locate the "learn" or "smart" button. This can usually be found where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the motor-head unit. Firmly press and release the "learn" or "smart" button. (The name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer.) NOTE: There are 30 seconds in which to initiate the next step.
  7. Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold for two seconds and release the programmed Transmitter button. Repeat the "press/hold/release" sequence a second time, and, depending on the brand of the garage door opener (or other rolling code equipped device), repeat this sequence a third time to complete the programming process.
  8. Transmitter should now activate your rolling code equipped device. To program the remaining two buttons, simply repeat the process.

Can't program the homelink system to my garage door opener on slk280 2007. i know the garage door works with learn button as i programmed on another mercedes ml.


Have you remembered to push the little button on the head of the garage door. most of the new ones use a rolling code and you have to push the button and make it flash, then you just hold your button on you home link, it blinks slow I think then blinks fast. and you are done.
