Talking HomeLink Problem Solved

I have a Genie Excelerator (Model ISD995) installed and is programmed to operate from Wireless Keypad, a Genie Remote control and the HomeLink in my auto. All has been working well since it was installed 12/2003. This is a "rolling code" version.

Saturday I traded my '02 Caddy for '07 Lexus ES350 that also has the HomeLink. I was unable to program the new car HomeLink. When going through the setup procedure, the HomeLink switch "acted" as though it received the programming from a remote, but the Radio Signal Indicator would not respond to the HomeLink transmissions........it just continued to "blink", and finally time out. I tried to program this many times.....probably 15 times, with the same result.

The Remote Units and the KeyLess Pad will operate my Genie without problem.

In order to determine if the HomeLink in the new car was on the "Fritz", I attempted to program the HomeLink for my daughters garage-door opener. I used the same procedure, and it responded. No problems.....HomeLink switch #3 will successfully open my daughters garage door. She also has a "rolling" code.

FYI - I tried programming all three switches in the new HomeLink at my residence. None would respond. The fact that Switch #3 successfully took the programming of my daughters garagedoor opener lead me to believe that the HomeLink device was probably working ok.

I have used both the Standard size Genie Remote Control and the Series II Mini Transmitter to program the HomeLink.

So..........I visited with my Lexus Dealer and he suggested calling the HomeLink Help Line at 800-355-3515, which I did. In relatively short time, after a 15 minute wait, the Help Desk person suggested I try one of the "other" buttons on the Series II Mini Transmitter. It has three.........one large and two smaller buttons. I had been using the "large" to program the HomeLink buttons. When I repeated the procedure (that I have done 20 times by now), but using the "small" button, it WORKED ! !

The Help Guy indicated that there was some sort of a coding difference between the "large" and "small" button. I was so pleased with the result, I sorta lost interest in the detail.

If you have problems,try all the "buttons"............still won't work, call the Help Desk. The Help Desk person was very nice.

I had a similar problem where I couldn't program my Home Link.

Solution was, to clear the memory by pressing the one and three button at the same time and wait for a steady blink.

Default Thanks so much Neal73

Wow! Thanks so much Neal73 for your post! My husband and I had tried and tried for several hours. I then searched the Web and found your post and we said "Well, why not. We'll try the other button on the remote and see what happens". Wow it worked INSTANTLY and on the 1st try using one of the smaller buttons on the remote! Thank you so much for your very informative message. We just purchased a 2007 RX-350 and could not get the garage door opener programmed. We had a 2001 RX-300 and the programming was very simply on it. Thanks so much. Really appreciate it!

I too struggled with configuring my Momelink on my 2007 Lexus ES 350 and a Genie "rolling code" opener. I was using a replacement Genie remote I bought from Home Depot. With this remote, I never got to the point in the process of seeing the fast blinking lights on the Homelink console.

I dug out an old Genie remote that came with my original opener. I repeated the process and the remote synced immediately with Homelink... I finished the process as stated in the manual and am now good to go.

I also would like to chip in for future users... The way I got it to work for me is adjusting the antenna connected to the Genie garage opener. All I needed to do is to point the antenna outward towards the outside rather just have it hanging downward. I've tried programming with the car outside of garage, and using every other buttons I can possibly click.
It really depends on the garage opener itself...it behaves so....exotically?

Hi everyone,
This is my first post on this forum, in fact I just registered to the Club a few minutes ago. I was dealing with this issue for a while since my Homelink was unable to sync with my Garage Transmitter showing all times slow blink instead of fast blinking.
Thx reading one post in this Forums I realized that with my car I had to put the ignition on "run" to get this to work. I didn't try on "acc"position, so I don't know if on that will work. BTW the Lexus user Manual don't mention this step when syncing the transmitter and the Homelink.
I hope this help other members like did on my situation.
