If you have your "HomeLink" (which is really Car2u) working, what are you opening?

I have a new gate opener and am beyond frustrated. Can't get it to work with the Escalade. 2 other cars with the real "HomeLink" work fine.

No bueno on the Escalade Car2u system.

You'll need to get an adapter for the gate to work with the Escalade not the other way around.

I have a newer Chamberlain door opener that's supposed to work with everything but lo and behold, I have two different adapters hanging from the ceiling.

I know it's not easy to see there but I have an adapter for GM and another for Chrysler up there. It's basically a repeater that "Interprets" the signal and re-broadcasts it in the appropriate frequency.

I had to do this very thing to get the homelink working in my dodge charger, found one used on Ebay for about 12 bucks a couple years back.

So the Lade doesn't have real Homelink? That might explain why I can't get one of my two garage doors to work even tho it worked with 98 Riviera, 01 Suburban and my 05 STS.

It does. However, there are some incompatibility issues with garage door (or gate) issues as well as a couple of different versions of HomeLink. That's what the adapter is for.

You can see the one on the right in the photo.. it clearly says "HomeLink".

If I remember correctly, there was a buyout and yadda yadda two standards, confusion.. I don't know. Remember VHS vs Beta? LOL.
If it works on your STS that's awesome. Consider yourself lucky.

It's the garage door/gate opener that's the issue. They're not universally compatible with all vehicles due to the changing standards. Some of that is for the good.. we had a garage door growing up that would open when an airplane flew over the house and used their radio. They've come a long way.

It's sure nice being able to see the garage door status from the other side of the country so these newer openers are sure nice.
