    Do you have the manual? Page 2-48 of the 2006 pdf version (p. 118/478).

    Re: HomeLink Garage Opener Setup

    You really do need an Owners Manual with these cars. If you have Nav, you need the Nav/Bose 15.1 addendum. New ones are available from Helm. eBay may have some.

    I think there's a link to pdf versions in the Sticky thread, above.

    Programming Universal Home Remote
    Follow these steps to program up to three channels:

    1. Press and hold down the two outside Universal
    Home Remote buttons, releasing only when the
    Universal Home Remote indicator light begins
    to flash, after 20 seconds. Do not hold down the
    buttons for longer than 30 seconds and do not
    repeat this step to program a second and/or third
    hand-held transmitter to the remaining two Universal
    Home Remote buttons.

    2. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter
    about 1 to 3 inches (3 to 8 cm) away from the
    Universal Home Remote buttons while keeping the
    indicator light in view.

    3. Simultaneously press and hold both the desired
    Universal Home Remote button and the hand-held
    transmitter button. Do not release the buttons
    until Step 4 has been completed.
    Some entry gates and garage door openers may
    require you to substitute Step 3 with the procedure
    noted in “Gate Operator and Canadian
    Programming” later in this section.

    4. The indicator light will flash slowly at first and then
    rapidly after Universal Home Remote successfully
    receives the frequency signal from the hand-held
    transmitter. Release both buttons.

    5. Press and hold the newly-trained Universal Home
    Remote button and observe the indicator light.
    If the indicator light stays on constantly,
    programming is complete and your device should
    activate when the Universal Home Remote button is
    pressed and released.
    To program the remaining two Universal Home
    Remote buttons, begin with Step 2 under
    “Programming Universal Home Remote.” Do not
    repeat Step 1 as this will erase all of the
    programmed channels.
    If the indicator light blinks rapidly for two seconds
    and then turns to a constant light, continue with
    Steps 6 through 8 following to complete the
    programming of a rolling-code equipped device,
    most commonly, a garage door opener.

    6. Locate in the garage, the garage door opener
    receiver (motor-head unit). Locate the “Learn”
    or “Smart” button. This can usually be found where
    the hanging antenna wire is attached to the
    motor-head unit.

    7. Firmly press and release the “Learn” or “Smart”
    button. The name and color of the button may
    vary by manufacturer.
    You will have 30 seconds to start Step 8.

    8. Return to the vehicle. Firmly press and hold the
    programmed Universal Home Remote button for
    two seconds, then release. Repeat the
    press/hold/release sequence a second time, and
    depending on the brand of the garage door opener,
    or other rolling code device, repeat this sequence
    a third time to complete the programming.
    The Universal Home Remote should now activate
    your rolling-code equipped device.

    To program the remaining two Universal Home Remote
    buttons, begin with Step 2 of “Programming Universal
    Home Remote.” You do not want to repeat Step 1,
    as this will erase all previous programming from
    the Universal Home Remote buttons.

    Re: HomeLink Garage Opener Setup

    I just went outside to see if I could be of some help. I have a Craftsman opener. I erased the codes on my car's Homelink Remote. I then went in the garage and pushed what they call a green SRT buton on the garage door opener. A green light came on. I went back in the car and pressed the middle button for about 5 seconds and released it and immediatley pushed it again and it worked. I tryed it on the my wife's CTS and it worked on hers too. Hope this helps. I remember all he frustration the day I brought my car home. It seems the the simplest procedure worked. Nothing I did from the owners manual worked.

    I had to get a remote and hold it next to the homelink and press the homelink buttons at the same time to program it

    I followed the instructions in the manual and it did not work.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Re: HomeLink Garage Opener Setup

    I gave you my suggestion. Did you try it? Nothing in the cars owners manual worked for me either. You basically program the car's Homelink receiver the same way you do the garage door opener's remote. Worked for me. Try again.

    I don't know where or what the SRT button is?

    Re: HomeLink Garage Opener Setup

    Get the door opener manual and match the car in much the same way.

    Some of the newest door openers are not compatible.

    I tried it that way and still nothing.

    Tried the HomeLink way and that didn't work and also tried the other suggestion with hitting the SRT/Learn button

    I'm sorry I couldn't help. It's hard doing some of these things over the internet. Must be something else wrong.

    Re: HomeLink Garage Opener Setup

    Do you by chance have a newer Craftsman/LiftMaster/Chamberlain opener? I got a new Craftsman AssurLink opener late last year, and found out that the latest openers have a new set of HomeLink codes in them. My wife's 2011 Outback would program fine, but my 04 CTS-V wouldn't. After talking to HomeLink, there's an adapter box I needed that translates the older codes to the newer opener. If your car was made in the last 3 or 4 years, it's free, otherwise it's $50. I fibbed and said my wife's wasn't working, so they covered the cost under that and I was only out $7 shipping.

    I have a Genie Pro Max

    I tried the other method of hitting the learn button, then holding down the HomeLink button for a few seconds then releasing. Did this three times...

    What I notice is: the Learn button light will go on/flash when I'm holding down the HomeLink button. It just doesn't do anything else.

    I have a 2005 STS. Not sure how old this garage opener is though.

    I appreciate your help. Thank you. I tried your method but no luck. Maybe it's just not compatible with that garage opener.
