Hey everyone,
I dug around on the forums and the interwebs and was unable to come up with anything.

I have a 2006 Subaru Forester and on the mirror are three universal garage door openers.

The book has no information on how to program these and no amount of fiddling with them has resulted in any progress.

Any ideas or reference materials?

Thank you!

Thanks!

Thank you James! I appreciate it.

I will certainly try to make this work for me.

I found a similar site as the one you posted- but wasn't sure if it would be what I needed.

HomeLink;FAQl

I can't program my HomeLink®

You can either call our customer service number (1-800-355-3515) or contact us for complete programming assistance. First try the following troubleshooting tips:

* Check the frequency of the device’s handheld transmitter (usually found on the back). HomeLink® is compatible with radio-frequency devices operating between 288-433MHz.
* Put a brand new battery in the handheld transmitter. During the programming process the battery's energy tends to drain (more so with an older battery). A new battery will increase the speed and accuracy in which the handheld transmitter sends its signal to HomeLink®.
* Retrain HomeLink® holding the handheld transmitter at different lengths and angles from the HomeLink® button you are trying to program. Try 4-6 inches away at a different angle.
* Cycle the handheld transmitter during programming: Press and hold the HomeLink® button while you press and release the handheld transmitter every 2 seconds until the indicator light changes from a slow blink to a rapid flash.
* To verify HomeLink® has programmed, press and hold the HomeLink® button and observe the indicator light:
o If the indicator light remains solid, it has picked up the signal and should operate the device.
o If the indicator light blinks rapidly for two seconds and turns solid, HomeLink® has successfully picked up the rolling code signal. Please follow the rolling code instructions outlined in the "Programming a garage door opener" section to complete the process.
o If the indicator light remains a slow blink, HomeLink® has not picked up the signal from the handheld remote. Try programming the button again or choose another button to program.

I have a very old and very new garage door opener in my house, I've gotten 3 different homelink mirrors and one visor (in the tribeca) to work.
