Garage Door Opener

I recently bought a 2008 Camry Hybrid with Garage opener switches in the car (Home Link) and used the learn code button to sit up the garage door opener to respond to the switch in the car. Worked great, until I tried to use my wireless keypad-IC (mounted on the exterior door jam of the garage). At first I thought the battery in the wireless key pad was dead. I replaced the battery and still no good. Any idea how I can sit up the opener to respond to both the wireless key pad and the Home Link switch in the car?

It should not have anything to do with the HomeLink. It only learns the code from your transmitter when you set it up. It probably is just a coincidence. Your keypad may just have gone out.

We also set up our Homelink for our single garage door and it has not affected our keyless (Chamberlin) pad.

It's nice to have a built-in opener as opposed to a visor mounted clip on unit.

That said, I've found a few shortcomings in this arrangement.
  1. I can't find it easily in the dark (some type of pilot light would be REALLY nice
  2. I've programmed the open/close function but haven't been able to get the 2nd button to control the light on the opener
Which leads me to my general pet peeve about this car - our '92 Camry LE had all the driver door window and door lock buttons lit. The '07 TCH only has the driver window button illuminated. I still can't find the danged door lock switch at night!

Check and see how many devices your garage door opener can recognize. Typically, it's 3 or 5 (I don't recall). I ran into this limit once when I had 2 homelinks, 2 fobs, a keypad and wanted to give another fob to my bro, so he could get his 4-wheeler whenever he wanted it.

I ended up living without one of the fobs. IIRC, the "memory" operates like a ring buffer - the first (oldest) device "remembered" is the first one overwritten when you exceed the limit.

When I pressed the "learn" button on my garage opener, it erased every garage door opener I had in my wife's car, my son's and my daughter's as well as the key pad outside the garage. Had to reset all of them. Haven't reset the outside key pad yet cause I can't find the instructions to do it.

I assume you have a built in garage door opener with 3 buttons. You can set one button for one door and another button for the other. My '08 has 3 buttons but only programed 1 of them so far.

Yep. You have 3 buttons. Use them however you want.
