Home Link won't work with rolling code opener
Has anyone got their Home Link (buttons on review mirror) to work on their rolling code garage door opener? I have tried multiple times and cannot get it to work.
I tried it on the garage door opener at my previous apartment and it wouldn't work. I tried it on the garage door opener at my new house and it doesn't work either.
I followed these steps with the car parked under the opener:
Press the two outside homelink buttons (house 1 and house 3 on mine) and hold for 20 seconds till the red light starts blinking slowly. Once it's blinking slowly hold the garage door opener close to the mirror and hit the open button till the light starts blinking quickly. This means that it's programmed. If it still doesn't operate the garage door, you probably have one with rolling code technology, so there's an additional step. Press the learn button on your garage door opener and within 30 seconds press the newly programmed homelink button.
This is getting annoying as heck as my remote quit working and I don't want to pay $69.99 for a new one, and Home Depot and Wal-Mart don't have the universal openers in store. I leave for work and have to get out of the car, go inside the garage and hit the button and then run and duck and lift my legs before it gets too low. Of course, when I get home I need to go thru the front door and then out through the garage. It sucked one day when the GF had locked the second key less deadbolt and I couldn't get in the house until she got home with her remote.
