    You may have programmed it properly and not know it. You need to press the key(s) you programmed in for at least 2 seconds before the garage door opens/closes. I didn't like the way this works, I like to just press the button once and door opens/closes and not have to "press and hold" button for 2 seconds in order for it to work.

    Maybe this is the issue???

    Homelink

    I went straight to the Homelink PDF referenced above in this thread & followed their directions precisely (I have a 1999 GENIE rolling code GDO) and it worked without a hitch.

    No need to unplug or anything else; here are the steps:

    1. hold 2 outer buttons 20 secs
    2. hold remote next to homelink in van until flash blinking becomes slow
    3. verify it didn't 'catch' the rolling code (2 secs of fast blinking followed by solid light) whenever i pressed the homelink button
    4. pushed 'learn' button on GENIE (behind the faceplate where the light bulb is on the left as I'm facing the rear of garage)
    5. ran quickly back to van (you got 30 seconds) and pressed the homelink button solidly (for like 1 second).
    6. pressed it a second time
    7. then whenever I pressed & held for like 1/2-1 sec, up & down goes the door

    et voila


    I couldn't follow that link above, but I did go to homelink.com. However, their instructions didn't solve my problem.


    What eventually solved my problems are the instructions I quoted above. In my case, I needed to follow the two-step method of first programing the homelink button using the remote transmitter; then second, programming the same homelink button using the GDO's learn button.

    A big thanks to nyvram for your tips.

    I've tried to program my 03's homelink to work with my liftmaster gdo. After finishing all the steps (learning and training for rolling codes), all my homelink does (but it does it really well!) is turn the light on the gdo on or off--weird because my original remote doesn't have a button to toggle only the light. Any suggestions?

    I was able to program my Garage door opener after disabling wireless garage door operation instead of turning off. Also programmed the second and third buttons to arm/disarm my X10 based security system.

    HomeLink Device Compatability List

    I have an Allister ARD IIA GDO. I'm not sure if HomeLink is compatable or not, however, the previous owner of this home used an integrated opener in his truck so I'm assuming that it must be compatible. I've read the tips about clearing the codes first, checking to see if it's a rolling code system (it's from 1987, not a rolling code system), replacing the battery and still nothing. I'm thinking that maybe it's not compatible. Any other ideas before I stop trying to program this?

    if it's not a rolling code, it's even easier - reset the homelink system (outside two buttons for half a minute or so), then train one of the buttons to the garage door remote - hold the homelink button in the van down, then keep pressing and holding the remote button until the homelink trains on it (so press, hold for a few seconds, lift off, then press, etc. - until the homelink transmitter trains on it) - with a non-rolling code system, the remote code is fixed (doesn't change) - you get the homelink system to mimic it and you are done. With a rolling code system, you train the homelink system to one of the rolling code remotes, then train the garage door opener to recognize the homelink system (hence the second step).

    I had a problem with mine holding/keeping the code (Genie Excellerator with rolling code).

    The Homelink people told me to replace the battery in my hand held remote to send a stronger signal when programming.

    This worked!

    This was the first Homelink person who did more than just walk me through the procedure. I had also taken it to Honda who was no help.

    It works fine now.

    I became frustrated last night when I first tried to program HomeLink and couldn't get it to work. Of course, it was rainy and dark, so I didn't try very hard.

    This morning, after resetting the HomeLink, (pressing two outside buttons for 20 seconds) programming worked like a charm.

    My weirdness: after trying a million times to get mine to do anything except toggle the light on or off, I programmed the middle button instead of the left and now it works perfectly. I've been meaning to try programming the left button with my parents' GDO (same kind) to see if my left button is somehow broken, but keep forgetting when I have the chance.

    Thanks for the suggestions, but prior to my original post, I had tried all of those things. I replaced the battery, tried all three buttons, nothing.

    The only thing similar to my experience was:

    I kind of doubt that external environmental conditions have anything to do with the ability to program HomeLink...but that's the only thing that I have not yet tried. I guess I will try it again when it's not dark and rainy outside...but I'm not holding out any hope.

    Any other ideas?

    My door opener has 2 types of remote: visor and keychain. I could not program homelink with keychain remote, no matter what I tried, visor remote did the job on the first try.

    I only have one remote for my garage. It has a single button with a selector switch on the side to select which of the two garage doors to open. It's a visor style opener.
