We can't seem to get our HomeLink transmitter to work with our Craftsman rolling code door openers (both openers are less than a year old). Any help? We've gone through the owner's manual instructions several times with no luck.

Couldn't find anything useful with the search engine.

I had the same problem as you months ago...I have to say that the instructions found on our Owner's Manual is not the correct way to program a rolling-code.

I called HomeLink's 1800-number (can be found on the Ody's owners manual). The rep was very kind and patient enough to go through all the steps to make it work. I didnt have a cordless, so she had to wait when I put her on hold, while I ran (back & forth) to the Ody in the garage to do the steps she just told me.

So just give it a try.

Well, this probably isn't much help, but I pressed the little red button on the back of the motor unit of the garage door opener, then pressed the Homelink button I wanted to program for about 10 seconds. I had to do this twice, and it seemed to work OK. I DO have to press the Homelink button for about two seconds for it to open or close the garage door, however - which I don't have to do with my regular garage door opener.

This is exactly what I did to program the homelink in my Maxima. Sometimes I have to press the homelink button twoce in order for it to work though.

Stop pressing the red button when the yellow led flashes. If you continue to press the button longer, you will reset all the transmitters. [I have done this :) ]

Additionally, If I recall correctly, there is a limit on number of remotes the unit will learn.

Craftsman opener here, too (6 months old) and no problems following the directions in the Ody manual for programming the Homelink button. Worked fine.

Yes, follow the instructions in the Ody Owners manual. Not the Craftsman Manual, they did not work for me either.

You need a helper for this. Not a one man job.

It probably helps, but you don't really need a helper. Just have a stool ready, and take the plastic cover off of the door opener. Then park the Ody next to the stool.

I did it myself one night, about 11pm. You have plenty of time to push all the buttons correctly.
