Press and hold buttons 1 and 3 for 15 seconds on HomeLink. Homelink buttons are on the rearview mirror or just above it.
Next, press and hold button 1 on the HomeLink and at the same time press the button on your handheld garage door opener. Keep both pressed for about 8 seconds. The HomeLink LED light should start flashing rapidly.
Once you see the flashing light go to your garage door motor, you will find the garage door motor mounted on the ceiling of your garage. Locate the LEARN button on the back of the garage door motor and press it once. Do not keep it pressed.
Quickly go back to the car and press button 1 on HomeLink a few times until the garage door starts to operate. The last step can not take more than 30 seconds. Each press needs to be two seconds long.
For more help, follow the detailed step-by-step procedure below.
What you will need
- Locate the 1 and 3 buttons on the rearview mirror
- Press both buttons (1 and 3) simultaneously and hold down for a while until the LED light begins to blink. This means that memory is cleared.
- Ensure minimum proximity between your garage remote and the Homelink buttons.
- Pick up the handheld garage remote. Press and hold down the garage button while you press button “1” on Homelink. Hold for a while until the orange light appears and starts blinking green—about 8 seconds.
- Go to the garage and remove the casing on the motor to reveal the learn button. Press and release the learn button. Do not hold the learn button down too long, or you will erase all programmed remotes.
- Go back to the car quickly and finish the connection by pressing the 1 button on the rearview mirror a few times. Press the one button anytime after that to unlock the garage door.
If you are not able to program your Lexus garage door opener, repeat all of the steps. Steps 5 and 6 should be completed within 30 seconds. In step 6, keep button 1 on HomeLink pressed instead of pressing the button several times.
