  1. Park your Audi close to the garage. Do not park the car where it can be hit by the garage door or an automatic gate.
  2. Turn on the ignition. If your Audi has a START button, press it without pressing on the brake pedal. All dash lights will be on but do not start the engine.
  3. Press and hold the button that you want to program for 10 seconds. This is the button by the dome light in your car, not the remote garage door opener.

Adding a few more pointers here. You might notice a few things if you are doing this yourself e.g. 1. If the LED is continuously on (not blinking, just keeps on) - This indicates that you did everything correctly, programming has been accepted and you are good to go 2. If the LED blinks twice and then remains on without any blinking - This would indicate that the Audi require some additional input

THESE INSTRUCTIONS DID NOT WORK FOR ME AS THE REMOTE was unable to link up with the Q5. It seems to need a special remote as it will not sync directly with garage door unit. That is not the least bit convenient. Audi should do better than that. Why must I go purchase a special remote for the 2019 Q5?

Just finished programming my 2018 A4 to operate the new Chamberlain garage door openers. Straightforward process by following the MMI directions. The prior (Model 550) Chamberlain was more difficult. The best 2 sources I found for problem solving are https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYvzV4Z7200 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iQBlBNyiWs&app=desktop. The first one was especially helpful.

This does not apply to the 2019 Q3. There is no button on the roof, only a touchpad interface. Following the MMI instructions also does not work. Do you have instructions for this car?

This did not work for me o my 2019 A4.

These steps are a bit different than what my owner's manual states. Neither works.  My manual says to hold the opener in front of the mirror rather than in front of the vehicle.

I never get the car to accept my opener's signal.  It always times out after 30-60 seconds and says it failed.  I tried all buttons.

Is there a problem with my vehicle?
