What's the trick to this? There's only two steps to the process but it just isn't working. Press link button on garage opener, then hold the desired homelink button for 2 secs, 3 times.

What happens is, hold home link button first time home icon and orange light starts blinking. Let go, stays the same. Hold the second time for 2 secs, orange light goes out. Hold third time for 2 secs home icon goes out. I tried 6-7 times re reading the instructions a few times. Still nothing.

Any tips?

I went through it several times before I realized that the instructions for rolling code openers are on the next page. Very poor support and confusing instructions from Homelink, and they seem to trickle down into the Toyota manual as well.

Usually you have to program the Homelink with one of the transmitters that came with the opener. Then you pair the Homelink with the opener.

That would make sense. Don't think it was this difficult with others I've programmed. It's confusing too because some methods are for USA and some for Canada. I agree with rdgrimes, the instructions aren't very good.
I may have only been doing half the steps then. I've never had it flashing green though indicating anything has learned a code but I believe I've been doing it wrong. I've been skipping right to where the header says "programming rolling code" thinking that the previous stuff was irrelevant.

So If I'm reading right, I have to select my homelink button, then program it by pressing the garage door opener every 2 secs repeatedly(for Canada if I understand correctly, It's a hold for USA) until the light flashes green. THEN, I press the learn button on the actual garage door opener motor and press and hold the programmed homelink button for 2 secs up to 3 times.

That's what I'm getting from the instructions now anyway.

Thanks for the replies. They have helped. At work now but will try again tonight.

That's exactly what I had to do, program from the remote first, then pair it with the opener. The manual instructions weren't very clear on this.

I had given out my remotes because you usually can program from the openers. After I finally got them programmed I find them de-programming all the time and have to keep a remote in the car.

Yeah good post would never figure out with manual. Had to try twice. But pushing garage door remote 2 seconds twice, to get green light then hitting learn on main unit did the trick.....2020 hybrid limited
