did you try to learn with the main unit instead of using remote?
as i remember i have done both open or close with no problem.Welcome, Lardo, and congrats on the new CT.
Sometimes programing these things can be a bear.
Sounds like you made all the right moves but was the garage door open or closed? I believe on my door it had to be closed.
One more observation: If memory serves, the last move is to press the homelink button once. Did you do that?
I'll try it when I get back home but I doubt there is a "learn" button on the main unit.
LOL, edub, That sounds like me: Gettin' 'up there' and takes a 'few tries'..I had a bit of trouble programming mine with the remote. The first time, the door would only open so I reset it and then I could only get the door to close. So I reset it again and drove out of range of my garage and then programmed the homelink button for the 3rd time and it worked! My garage door opener is ancient which may have something to do with it.
Fully agree!!!......there you go, Lardo -- good for another 12 years.
or you could put a new, rolling code opener on your Christmas list= must more secure.
