: garage door remote problems

I cannot get the remote to program with any button, the rang rover works just fine. Any solutions?

I feel your pain. I have had the same issues. The 2007 and 2008 Escalades have the Lear system...which is absolutely horrible. Cadillac abandoned the Homelink system for some reason. I have had a lot of problems with it as well with the gates in my subdivision. I called Lear customer service and they wanted to put a special module for my Escalade on the gate control panel...which I found laughable. I never had a problem with any universal transmitters until this Lear Car2U system. Don't you love that a universal transmitter system in a 25K Nissan works better and more effectively than one in a 70K Escalade?? Chalk up another great decision by GM.

Unfortunately I believe you have adequately answered my question. Thanks for the quick response, I think you are probably right on the mark.

'07 may have had incorrect info in the manual because they changed suppliers mid-year.
They went from homelink to a lear system.


The first link is for a system that has 1 LED.
The 2nd link is for a 3 LED system.

As above posted there are two different models, I have one in each truck, I have them both opening different garage door openers and driveway gates, they both program slightly different. :)

Tony1971 - you nailed it, mine is a Lear system and it programmed perfectly on the first try. Thanks!

Yes I have one of each in my two 07's, Homelink probably wanted more money than GM wanted to pay. :(

I think you are exactly right.

for some reason my 08 opens my garage door fine....but refuses to be programmed for my community gate.....this and the lack of bluetooth makes the car a true annoyance!@!
