I was having no luck at all programming my Homelink mirror to my Liftmaster garage door opener. I've done this with our three other cars with no trouble in the past. The garage door uses rolling codes. I tried the instructions from the Hyundai manual with no luck. Then tried the instructions from the Liftmaster owners manual again with no luck. Finally tried the instructions from the manuals for out three other cars but nothing seemed to work. What finally worked was going to the Homelink website and downloading the specific instructions for Hyundai Sonata and LIftmaster. If anyone else is having the same problem go to Homelink.com for help. Here are the instructions if anyone else is trying to program their Homelink to a Liftmaster.


1. For first time training, press and hold the two outer HomeLink buttons, releasing only when the HomeLink indicator light begins to flash after 20 seconds. (Do not perform this step when training the additional HomeLink buttons.)

2. Position the hand-held transmitter 1-3 inches away from the HomeLink surface (located on your mirror), keeping the HomeLink indicator light in view.

3. Using both hands, simultaneously press and hold both the desired HomeLink button and hand held transmitter button. DO NOT release until the HomeLink indicator light flashes slowly and then rapidly. When the indicator light flashes rapidly, both buttons may be released. (The rapid flashing indicates successful training.)

Note: Some garage door openers may require you to replace step 3 with the “cycling” procedure noted in the “View Canadian Instructions” section.

4. Press and hold the trained HomeLink button and observe the indicator light.
If the indicator light is solid/continuous, training is complete and your device should activate when the HomeLink button is pressed and released.
If the indicator light blinks rapidly for 2 seconds and then turns a solid/continuous light, proceed with the following training instructions for a rolling code device. A second person may make the following steps quicker and easier. Please use a ladder or other device. Do not stand on your vehicle to perform the next steps.

5. At the garage door opener receiver (motorhead unit) in the garage, locate the “learn” or “smart” button (usually near where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the unit). If there is difficulty locating the training button, reference the garage door opener’s manual or contact us.

6. Press and release the “learn” or “smart” button (the name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer). NOTE: Once the button is pressed, there are 30 seconds in which to initiate the next step.

7. Return to the vehicle and firmly press and hold the trained HomeLink button for two seconds and release. Repeat the “press/hold/release” sequence up to 3 times to complete the training process.
HomeLink should now activate your device.

Retain the original hand-held transmitter of the RF device you are programming for use in other vehicles, as well as for future HomeLink programming. It is also suggested that upon the sale of the vehicle, the programmed HomeLink buttons be erased for security purposes. To erase the programmed buttons, perform the procedure shown in step number 1.

**To train additional HomeLink buttons, begin with step two.

I have tried every method I can find for programing my Craftsman 1/2 hp garage door opener and the homelink in my new Sonata. I even tried the Canadian method... no luck.
The real annoying part is my Wifes new Dodge Ram programed using the garage door opener control in 30 seconds w/ no issues. So i do no understand why I cannot get the Homelink program to work... grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I sucessfully programed my Geinne door opener to obey the Homelink signal, but now neither one of the old remotes work. I've tried the proceedure outlined in the manual, but that doesn't work. I'm reluctant to push the "learn" button again as I'll probably lose everything.

I note the Homelink website has a 1-800 number. I'll give them a call in the AM.

The salesperson gave me a paper copy of TSB 09-90-027 which he say he had to use on his Genesis Coup to get the door opener to work. I did not use the TSB but used the owners manual where the first method did not work for me (rolling code system) and I had to press the learn button on the garage door opener and then press the button in the car. That worked first time. All the other remotes still work.


Here is a scan of the TSB, The encircled part of the second page is marked with - Important Do this first

I am having problems trying to program our Overhead Door garage door openers. I have tried both methods multiple times and one time I got one of our doors to obey the homelink for a short period of time and then stopped working??!! I gave up after about 45 mins.

I Remember reading somewhere ( Can't remember Where ) that the car needs to be running or at minimum the ignition set to ACC in order to program the homelink

I tried this and it finally worked. Secret is to hold the bottons 1 and 3 for longer than 20 seconds. Owners manual says not to do that but its wrong.

Some make of garage door openers with rolling code technology require you to use the original handheld remote that came with the opener in order to program the homelink.

The keychain opener I had would not work, switched to the factory supplied opener and it programmer first try (using the instructions in the manual or what Magyer58 has posted below).
My opener was made by Overhead door.
