Programming the trucks garage door opener

Universal Home Remote System Programming

Postby In2Trux [OP] » Nov 05 2010, 2:42pm

I have gone threw the owner's manual about a dozen times and reread it thinking that I may have missed something.

My garage door is a Fixed Code.
My truck has the 3 LED indicator light on the 3 buttons.

Briefly this is what I'm suppose to do
Hit all three buttons at the same time for about three seconds. Release the buttons which puts the Universal Home Remote into program mode. The indicator lights will blink slowly. Enter each switch setting from my hand held remote of my garage door opener into the UHR of the truck.
When that was completed, I hit all three switches again and held them for up to 55 seconds in hope that my garage door might slightly move indicating that the program took. Then selecting the one button I wanted to dedicate as the garage door button. After about 6 attempts at this with no good results frustration set in. I want in my CAVE

I don't recall exactly, but I know you are missing a step. there is a step that involves pushing the "learn" button on your garage door opener at the same time as your car's homelink button. I recall being on the ladder and at the opener, when my wife was pushing the button in the truck. Sorry I don't have the detail, but re-check the manual and see if this helps.

Yes. You push the big square button ON the garage door. This is usually located near the light for the garage door opener. Push the button until the LED light next to it starts blinking. In the pic it's the purple square botton, (sorry it's out of focus) then go to your truck and hold the switch that you want to use for that garage door down until IT starts blinking. That should work. If not let us know.

Both you guys are rite if my garage door opener was a roving security code. Mine is a fixed code. That is the kind that has 8 or 9 of those tiny white switches. some of them are two position and some are three position switches. They stopped making them some time in the 80s and now have come out with the more secure roving code style.
I think it time for a new Garage door opener.
Apparently it's possible to program this into the UHR of the truck, but for some reason my truck won't take it.
Maybe I'll ask Santa for a new garage door opener. Or I'll just higher an elf to open the door every time I cum home. :)

I've fought with these openers for years on mine and helping family/friends.

I believe you are OK up to the point where you held the buttons for 55 seconds at the end (I think you blanked out the codes you just stored). I say that, but I know things are a little different for Canadian systems (FCC differences).

If all else fails, go to http://www.homelink.com/program.php and plug in you truck and opener brand...

There is a way to program it, my garage door openers are like that. I dont have the info in front of me but I know you have to push the left and/or right buttons depending if the dip switch is in the on or off position. It is in the owners manual, I will see if I can find it & post it.

You guys are gonna laugh at this one... I went to the Home Link site and repeatedly tried what they suggested. I wanted this to work so bad, that I kept doing it over and over, thinking I was doing something wrong. I kept trying it different slightly different ways. ie faster, shorter intervals, longer intervals. The funny part? I burnt the motor out in the old garage door opener LOL PERFECT TIMING
I'll be adding a Garage Door Opener to my Christmas List LOL

2011 LTZ - I checked the HomeLink site and it did not have instructions for a 2011, stopped at 2010. I called them and she said mine is a Lear system? The website crashed searching for the model number of my hand-held remote. :lol: http://www.learcar2u.com/

Anybody got information on programming the Lear truck remote? Thanks in advance!
