Garage door opener transmitter/receiver compatibility

I replaced 53000SRT Sears opener with 315MHz Security+ unit. I cannot get my car Homelink transmitter to program from the new transmitter nor can I get any old SRT transmitters to program the new receiver.

    What you said worked. I pressed the "learn" button on motor receiver and then pressed the open button on the car homelink, which I thought was not programmed. I guess this gets the rolling code business to work. Thanks

Press and hold the homelink button and wait till the red light flashes slowly,but don't release it. Now hold a working remote 3 inches away,press the remote button and hold it.When the red Homelink buttom fllashes quickly, release both buttons. Now go to the opener and push the learn button. Now go back to your car and press and hold the Homelink button. You will see the lights on your opener flash. Now your Homelink button should operate your garage door.

The old transmitters are 390 mhz and will not program. I need more info on what you are doing to solve the homelink problem. Your vehicle's owners manual should show how to program. Then press learn button and within 20 sec press and hold homelink button that you programmed.

I have the Liftmaster Chamberlain Professional Formula I model 102.1499A and for some reason, the learn button will not sync with the homelink on two of my cars. Is there a way to reset the learn button? ...


Here is the information I have for homelink.

  1. Clear out anything previously programmed into the in-car system from the factory by holding down on the 2-outside buttons simultaneously, until the in-car LED starts flashing rapidly. This may take up to a minute (in most cases, the key should be on auxilary, and/or the car door must be shut).

  2. Decide which button you want to make to be your in-car garage door transmitter. Hold your transmitter up near the selected button, pressing both the garage door remote and the selected in-car transmitter button simultaneously. Hold down on the buttons until the in-car, LED light flashes rapidly. This sets the in-car remote transmitter to be your garage door openers make transmitter, but you are not done. You now need to make this in-car transmitter your personal transmitter.

3. Go to the Learn Button on your garage door opener. The button is usually next to the area where the floppy antenna is connected to the motor head. With Genie it is most often behind the light lens, and an indicator light flashes red when pressed. With Sears or Liftmaster (Chamberlain) it is near, or part of, the terminal screw board, and is a red, green or purple square button with a green, amber or purple indicator light. Press this learn button momentarily. The indicator light will turn on and blink if Genie or otherwise stay lit. For Genie systems, go back to the in-car transmitter button you programmed and press this button 3 or 4 times, or until the door starts moving. This should set your in-car transmitter to your garage door opener. For Liftmaster, Sears, or Linear Megacode press and hold the in-car button you programmed until the garage opener light flashes. Your in-car is now programmed to operate your door.

1. In the vehicle press and hold the two outside buttons until the indicator light begins to flash (after 20 seconds). Release both buttons. Note: Some vehicles may require the ignition switch to be turned to the second (or "accessory") position during the programming process.

2. Hold the end of your handheld transmitter between 1 and 3 inches away from the Homelink surface (located on your visor or overhead console) keeping the indicator light in view.

3. Using both hands, simultaneously push the handheld transmitter button and the desired HomeLink button. DO NOT release the buttons until step 4 has been completed.

4. Hold down both buttons until the indicator light on the HomeLink Wireless Control System flashes, first slowly then rapidly. When the indicator light flashes rapidly, both buttons may be released. (The rapidly flashing light indicates successful programming of the new frequency signal.)

To train your garage door opener.

1. Locate the smart/learn button on the garage door opener motor head unit.

2. Press and immediately release the smart/learn button.

Firmly press and release the programmed HomeLink button. Press and release the HomeLink button a second time to complete the training process. (Some garage door openers may require you to do this procedure a third time to complete the training.)

Craftsman 1/2hp garage opener Homelink must be under unit to work


Have you tired reprogramming the remotes to the opener?

The opener receiver board may have failed, which happens. You can order a new one from Sears or other places on the Internet, and they are fairly easy to replace.

Once replaced, you will need to program the receiver to you remotes again.

If this doesn't work your car and homelink may not be compatible.

Yes. But you need a remote transmitter that is programmed to open the Lift Master. Then you just follow the instructions in your home link and it should work.

Press the homelink outside 2 button at the same time and hold till fast blinking (all erased). Then press homelink button1 and hold while aiming the transmitter (2 inches away) and pressing appropriate button on the remote. Continue to hold both till fast flashing seed on the homelink. Release both.

Change the code on a garage door transmitter?


There is a "learn" button on the garage door opener unit itself that you press before entering a code on the outside transmitter. This allows the receiver to learn a new code. The button is on the rear end of the housing near the terminals where the inside operation pushbutton connects.
Here's a link to programming instructions for a compatible unit by another manufacturer:
