I have an LS 430 2001, that I cannot get to accept the programming code from
the "learning Center" in the new Liftmaster Pro garage door opener. The new
opener has a "rolling code." The Lexus manual describes the procedure for
"rolling code devices" and I understand it well. Nonetheless, it will NOT
program.

Is it possible the 2001 Lexus needs to be updated for the more recent
"rolling code?"

How about a few opinions.

I have a 98 GS400 and made notes how to program the opener unit when we
first purchased it.

For Lift Master rolling code garage door openers:

Push desired button on Lexus then, put hand held opener withing 1" of Lexus
and push and hold correct button on handheld. Lexus lite will go from slow
to fast blink.

Then put Lexus under garage door receiver, hit red learn button for 1 sec.
Push, on Lexus, desired button(same one as above) and hold,

Done

Thanks for the input Randy. You are correct as to the procedure and this
A.M. I just received precise Email instructions from HOMELINK as how to do
it. I have posted it here for you and perhaps others:

Thank you for visiting our HomeLink website regarding the issue you are
having with your garage door opener. Referenced below are the instructions
to program a rolling code-equipped device to HomeLink. If at any time you
have a question or would like to speak with someone, call the HomeLink
customer service center at 1-800-355-3515 and an agent will be happy to help
while you are on the phone. We are open: M-F 5am-7pm, Sat. 6am-5pm & Sun.
7am-5pm MST.

I understand you may or may have not done some of these procedures, but
please follow them exactly as I have outlined them:

Please make sure that people and objects are out of the way of the moving
door when programming to prevent potential harm or damage.

NOTE: Some vehicles may require the ignition to be turned on or to the
second (or"accessory") position for programming and/or operation of
HomeLink. It is also recommended that a new battery be replaced in the hand
held transmitter of the device being programmed to HomeLink for quicker
training and accurate transmission of the radio frequency. Please use a
ladder and do not stand on your vehicle during the programming steps for a
rolling code opener.


Rolling Code Programming:

1. Press and hold the two outer HomeLink buttons until the indicator light
begins to flash (after 20 seconds)or the display reads "Channels Cleared".
Do not hold for longer than 30 seconds. Do not repeat this step to program
additional HomeLink buttons.

2. Place the hand-held transmitter 1-3 inches from the HomeLink button you
want to program.

3. Simultaneously, press and hold both your HomeLink button and your
hand-held transmitter. Do not release either button until step 4 has been
completed. (If you reside in Canada, refer to the "NOTE" below.)

4. When the indicator light changes from a slow blink to a rapid flash or
the display reads"Channel Trained", release both HomeLink & hand held
transmitter buttons.

5. Then go to your garage door opener motor head unit in the garage.
Locate the "Program" or "Learn" button. Usually near the hanging antenna
wire on your garage door opener motor head unit. (The name of these buttons
vary by manufacturer, please see your garage door openers owners manual for
the location of this programming button).

6. Press and release the "Program" or "Learn" button once, like a door bell
(1 second)(Do not hold this button down. Holding this button down for too
long will erase all Remotes, Keypad and other HomeLink equipped vehicles).
There is 30 seconds in which to initiate step 7.

7. Then go to your vehicle and firmly press and hold your already
programmed HomeLink button for three seconds and release. Do this procedure
a second time and depending on the Brand of your garage door opener you may
need to do this step a third time to complete the process.

The garage should now activate when the programmed HomeLink button is firmly
pressed and released. If not, give us a call or refer to the
"Troubleshooting Tips" noted below.

NOTE: If you reside in Canada, replace step three with the following:

Press and hold the desired HomeLink button and "cycle" the hand-held
transmitter. To cycle: Press and release the hand-held transmitter button
every two seconds until the indicator light changes from a slow blink to a
rapid flash(step four).


Troubleshooting Tips:

** Check the frequency of the garage door opener's hand-held transmitter
(usually found on the back). HomeLink is compatible with radio-frequency
devices operating between 288-399 Mhz.

** Put a brand new, store bought battery in the hand held transmitter.
During the programming process (step three above) the battery's energy tends
to drain (more so with an older battery). A new battery will increase the
speed and accuracy in which the hand-held transmitter sends its signal to
the HomeLink system.

** Retrain HomeLink holding the hand-held transmitter at different lengths
and angles from the HomeLink button you are trying to program (during
programming step three). Try 4-6 inches away at a different angle. Try
all three HomeLink buttons.

** Confirm that the HomeLink button you are trying to program is in the
"programming mode". Press and hold the desired button. The indicator
light will be a slow blink when HomeLink is in the "programming" mode and
can be programmed at any time.

Verifying HomeLink has picked up a rolling code signal:

** Press and hold the programmed HomeLink button. If the indicator light
blinks rapidly for two seconds and turns solid, HomeLink has successfully
picked up the rolling code signal. If necessary, proceed with steps 5-7
noted above to complete the rolling code programming.

If this does not work, please call our customer service center for further
assistance at the number above. They will be able to troubleshoot further
over the phone, while you are sitting in your vehicle in front of the
garage.

Please contact us again if you have additional comments or questions.

Best Regards,
Rick T.
HomeLink Customer Service.

Name: William Chapman


Reason for contacting HomeLink: Programming Issue

More specifically: Read programming instructions but unable to program

This person did not specify that they have read the owner's manual.

Vehicle Make/Model: Lexus LS-430

Vehicle Year: 2001

Garage Door Make/Model: Liftmaster 373LM

Garage Door Opener Age: < 1



Prefers to be contacted by email.


COMMENTS:
I cannot get the 2001 (LEXUS) LS 430 to accept the "learning unit" on the
new garage door opener by following the LEXUS "rolling code" instructions.
Therefore the remote Liftmaster 373LM must be used instead of the LEXUS
internal unit!! Very frustrating! Any suggestions as to how this NEW
315mhz unit can be made compatible with the LS 430??
