**** >>> This setup I performed with my new 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Homelink and Chamberlain Garage Door Opener <<< ****
Chamberlain: 01. Power off or unplug the garage door opener motor power supply (which is mounted on ceiling of the garage) ;;;
02. keep the garage door opener transmitter in your hand (do not press any button at this time) ;;;
03. In your 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink button (which resides under rear view mirror) press the 1st and 3rd homelink button together for about 30-40 seconds (i.e., until the yellow light blinks fast) and when the yellow light next to the homelink button blinks fast release from pressing the (homelink) buttons ;;;
04. now hold the garage door opener transmitter closer (means within 2-4 inches) to the homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd) whichever you are planning to program to open the garage door ;;;
05. now press the garage door opener transmitter button and chosen homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd whatever you need) together ;;;
06. the yellow light (next to homelink button) initially may blink slowly but after few seconds (may be 10-20 seconds) will blink fast; once it started blinking fast release from pressing both garage door opener transmitter and homelink button ;;;
07. Now plug or power on the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) ;;;
08. On the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) press the "LEARN" button (once you press it may have yellow/orange color light; make sure the light is on) ; then within 30 seconds do the next steps #9, #10, #11 very carefully ;;;
09. go to your car and press the homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 1st iteration ;;;
10. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 2nd iteration ;;;
11. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 3rd iteration ** important note; generally three iterations are not necessary; and steps #9, #10, #11 must be performed within 30 seconds ** ;;;
12. during one of the iteration you will hear "CLICK" sound one-time from Garage door motor (which is mounted on ceiling) and if you have light attached with it; it will blink once (** if you hear the CLICK sound and/or light blinks once**) then the particular homelink button is programmed ;;;
13. now press the programmed homelink button; the garage door will open or close (but always it will take 3 or 4 blinks in yellow light or 2-3 seconds before the garage door opens or closes and which is normal) ;;;
** Thats it, your 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Opener Homelink setup is complete ** ;;;
You can program rest of the homelink button the same way but following from the steps between #4 and #13 ;;;
Hope this steps will help you to program chamberlain Garage door opener in 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink. ;;;
** possibly the above same steps may work with other BMW 5-series cars homelink too (but I'm not sure) **
smart or learn button is located on the back of the garage door opener. (the machine that is over your head) on most units such as liftmaster, craftsman, chamberlin. its on back or side by the light bulb and is green, yellow, orange/red, purple. genie units are black button behind light cover. or external on old units. push and hold your cars homelink button will blink slow, at the same time push and hold the remote for the garage door. led light in car will blink fast. let both go. now go to the garage door head unit, (overhead) and push the learn button. button will blink and you have 30 sec. to go to car and push the cars garage door button. head unit should flash its light, letting you know that it is programed succesfully. genie units push 3 times
The motor has a thermal overload that will turn it off it if starts to overheat. Normally a 15 or 20 minute rest and it will automatically reset. The blinking yellow light may be sending a code. If it blinks 5 times and then pauses and then repeats it is the overload.
Hi. The sensor with the yellow light is telling you that it is miss-aligned, Usually it only takes getting bumped to knock them out of alignment. I would slowly turn or adjust the positioning of the sensor. The one with the yellow light should turn green when it is all the way in line so that the beam is completing it's path.
It's out of adjustment, so the sensor is looking at it like there is an object blocking the door from closing. It's called the obstruction sensor. It's there as a safety feature, so that the door doesn't come down and smash anything in the opening.
senor are obstructed, gently wipe off the lenz, look for any dust, cob webs or loose wires.
make sure the eyes see each other ( look for the lites on the side) one green and one yellow, tap on to make sure they do not flicker, move them around until you have a strong steady lite and then tighten down. this should solve your problem
this probably means you have a bad photo eye if you happen to have to doors side by side may be picking up on other sides photo eye just switch sides from left to right, however if the lights are coming on but does not mean that photo eye is not bad it has a small circuit board inside of it...
It sounds like you did a really good job! My Craftsman 1/2 hp gar. dr. opener has a red reset button on it on the l/h side as you are looking at the light/motor from the garage door opening. You have to take the light cover off to be able to see it. My reset button is on the same side as the ground wire. You might check the ground wire while you're there. I really hope that this fixes it for you (and me). I'm quite sure it will as you know your way around the garage door opener already. Good Luck and Let me Know (Please) if it fixed it or not. If I think of anything else, I'll let you know. Have a Good Day!
