Homelink won't communicate with opener - any tips?


Recommended Posts

I have a shiny new 997S in my garage, two weeks old. I have been trying to get the homelink garage door opener to learn the code from my hand held unit to no avail. I go through the sequence in the manual, getting to the point of the fog lights flashing 3 times indicating the sequence is complete. But when I try to use the homelink opener in the car, nothing happen. Same result for all three buttons.

Is there something I am missing here? I am baffled!

thanks for any help

To get Homelink to synch with some of the newer rolling code garage openers you need to press a button on the main opener unit (mounted on the ceiling) and then press your Homelink button within 30 seconds. Might be best to have two people unless you are fast down the ladder ;)

I'll give it a try tomorrow, thanks ... but I didn't have to do that when I programmed my Audi a couple of years ago, when we moved into the house.

Loren -- thanks ... helpful tip. And the other good idea was to RTFM for the garage door opener. Doh!! Turns out there is a "learn" button on the overhead unit, as you suggested, that I needed to operate. Works like a charm now.

Another resource for people looking for a solution, from another posting on this board ... http://www.homelink.com/training/train.taf
