I have had no issues programming Homelink on all of our cars equipped with it.alexh71 said:I have programmed my Genie with Ford, Toyota, GMC, Cadillac, and Infiniti vehicles, and the only thing that works for me every time is the following:
1. Put Homelink into programming mode in the vehicle (usually by holding the outside two buttons for like a minute). Have the remote that came with your garage door opener handy.
2. Press and hold the button on your garage remote and point it at the Homelink while in the vehicle; hold the button on Homelink you want to program. Be sure your car is out of the way of the garage door as it will probably open or close depending on prior position. Homelink should flash quickly to let you know it received the programming.
3. Next, get a ladder and press the learn button on the head unit of your garage door opener. Run to your car and push the Homelink button you just programmed until the door opener's light flashes. Now you should be able to use the Homelink transmitter to open and close the garage door.
Hopefully this is helpful!
My BMW will open the garage from the end of the driveway, about 150 feet away. The GL needs to be as close to the door as I can get to work at all. You'd think Merc would have thought about this glass and put the transmitter somewhere else. I have the rear AC and apparently that makes things worse. Oh well.AutoSaurus said:I had a heck of a time programming my Genie opener with the GL, ML and previous ML. The trick for me? Get under the opener and roll down the windows. I think the protectant on the glass blocks the signal. Crazy I know but it worked for me after what seemed like endless hours of pushing and holding little buttons.
