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.

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!
Neil, Incredible. After a few hours of going crazy, knowing I was following all the right steps I ran across your post and within 5 minutes I was programmed and homelink was working!!! Now I can sleep tonight!!
