I have a three car garage with two 15 year old openers and a new one just installed. My 2013 JX mates to the two older ones fine. But it appears that the new garage door remote cannot be programmed into the JX's Homelink. But check this out... when I had the QX60 loaner, I was able to program the new door to it!

The dealer replaced my JX rear view mirror/Homelink. But when I got home, I still have the issue with the third door. Does anyone know if there is a "new" rear view mirror/Homelink part number for the 2015 QX60's which would explain why that one worked? And then I assume they replaced my mirror with the old part number? The part number that shows in my repair report is "MIRROR ASSY - INSIDE - 96321 - CM30A". Is there a newer part number?

Since you have a new opener, it uses a random security code that changes. That means there is an extra step required to program your home link remote. There is a security button on your new opener box that you have to push during the programming process. You will hold the remote up to the home link mirror and press both buttons like normal, then get out of the car, press the security code button on the opener in the garage (you will need a step ladder), then repeat pressing both the remote and home link button in the car.

For the specific instructions, read the home link program section i n your owners manual.

I replaced all 4 garage door openers with Chamberlin garage door openers two years ago. Like Rooster stated, there should be a program or learn button on the motor unit that needs to be pressed first, then go through the programming procedure in the car. It took me several attempts to get it right, but it works now. Here is a link to Homelink's website: HomeLink

One thing that will cause your homelink to not work (and some of the hand held units as well) is the installation of LED bulbs in your garage door opener. For some reason these interfere with the signal transmitted. Ran into the same problem and a google search netted that answer. Changed back to regular light bulbs and it fixed the problem.

Yes, I know that. But thanks for sharing anyway. This is exactly how I programmed the other two doors. I.e. - use a step ladder to press the button in the garage door motor unit itself.

Hmm... this is interesting.


As a data point, I got a QX60 (renamed JX35) and the garage door openers programmed perfectly fine. So this tells me that either something was wrong with my rear mirror/garage door opener OR the newer QX60 has a new version. I would think it's the latter since they replaced my rearview mirror and the same issue is still present. The new unit that they installed cannot read the new garage door.


Thoughts?

I had a similar issue 2 years ago with my brand new expedition. I had just replaced my garage door opener with a Chamberlain belt drive. There was a new homelink version that had been rolled out to the opener that was not yet available on the vehicles, something link 2.0 I think. I had to order a homelink repeater kit from Amazon for around $40.

Since this was 2013, I can't believe this would still be an issue.....

Nice Suggestion! Hoping to get more suggestion on this one

I just went through this on my new 2016 QX60 and an older Genie garage door with a rolling code. If you follow all of the programming steps and still can't link the car, instead of pressing the button up to three times, hold it down for that step until the LED changes its state. The car will then be synchronized to the opener. The other step that I had to perform on my opener since it is older was refreshing it to allow for the new controller since it was maxed out at seven.

I have 2 chamberlain liftmaster 1/2 hp garage door openers. One stopped working 2 years ago because the sensors are messed up, and now the 2nd one stopped working for the same reason. I tried lining them up next to each other so the beam of light would be totally aligned, but no cigar. I tried cutting the wires and completing the circuit, nothing. I thought I could just easily bypass the sensor by shorting it or whatnot. Not the case. Has anybody had trouble with these? Anybody know how to bypass the sensors so the door can go down again

I have an 8355w Liftmaster that just replaced a 20 year old genie. I am unable to link the transmitter to my JX35's Homelink using the steps in the instruction manuals and the information provided in this forum. I'm waiting to contact the installer to see if they can help figure it out.

The HomeLlink systems in our vehicle are older units and will not work with the current LiftMasters/Chamberlain garage door openers. We need to use an extender model #855LM for the older HomeLink transmitters in our vehicle to work with the new garage door openers. I have a 2013 JX and the stock HomeLink does not work. Contacted LiftMaster and they confirmed the issue. The cost of the unit is $24.99.

I just had a LiftMaster put in and didn't have any issues getting my 17QX60's HomeLink programmed. Works fine. I did have to reset HomeLink to clear the code from the old garage opener as I was reusing the same button but otherwise it worked fine.
