I have had NO LUCK whatsoever getting the light on my Homelink to blink rapidly. I have pushed the learn button, then the remote and the homelink button simutaneously, then I tried the owner's manual method (pushing the homelink and the remote button (next to one another) for up to a minute...nothing. any ideas???

I have a new 2012 HyHi, and am also having trouble getting the homelink set. When I hold the garage door opener remote next to the homelink button, and the press both buttons per the owners manual, I get a rapid blink and then light on without any blinking. Help!

So, I thought this was going to be the solution to my problem but it did not work!!!
I have a 2012 Toyota Highlander and just installed a new Chamberlain belt drive garage door opener. Needless to say, the installer could not get the Homelink programmed. His response was to take the car to the Toyota dealer. Before doing that, I contacted HomeLink (on the phone with them for 2-1/2 hours with no success. Their response was to take the car back to the dealer and explain the problem. I did that and after 3 hours at the dealer they convinced me (by programming another remote to my Homelink) that there was no problem with my HomeLink. I then called Chamberlain back and got the following answer: "Although my model car is listed on the Homelink site as compatible with the model of GDO I purchased, there is no guarantee that the car manufacturer installed the proper version of HomeLink in my specific car. The GDO is a "Security+2.0" version which ONLY works with HomeLink version 4 or above. The 2012 Toyota Highlander is listed as having version 4 of HomeLink but some manufacturers are using up old inventory and still installing version 3 HLs!!! I have now asked the dealer to research whether or not my specific car has HL version 4 installed and if not, to replace mine with a version 4 of HL. I'll let you all know if I ever hear back from them.

I finally got my Highlander to work by following the directions from another forum.
even if you have a rolling code system, you have to program the remote controller AND press learn on the garage door system. Here's a copy of his post below:
Today, I was working on remote controllers for doors on an out building, and got all the doors "confused"- I was too! After many attempts, I think I have the Theory of Operation down.
First, hold down Buttons 1 & 3 in the Highlander. Hold for 30 seconds or until the light flashes. This clears all codes in the Highlander.
Next, using the garage door remote control- Push the Highlander's Button (1,2, or 3) and the hand held remote control button at the same time. Hold a few inches apart until the light blinks fast (about 20 seconds). The Highlander's Button (1,2, or 3) has just "Learned" what code to use. (This is all in the owners manual, but I didn't think this step was necessary since I had the Rolling Code System!)
Now, push the Learn button on the garage door's motor control unit and the Learn Light will glow. You have 30 seconds to push the Button you just selected in the Highlander. The Door Control Light will blink if you are successful.
Repeat for other Highlander Buttons using other door remotes and matching door opener control units.
Be sure you are close to the garage door units when setting up the systems.
When everything else fails! - Always read and follow manufacturers instructions.

I had trouble too until I read some of the posts here. I first held my garage door remote next to the Homelink button end pressed both buttons simultaneously until the Homelink led flashed rapidly. I then released the buttons, pressed the programming button on the garage door head unit until the led there stayed lit. I then pressed the Homelink button twice on the scar. Both leds flashed and the connection was made. The key is first linking the garage door remote to the Homelink.

I ran into a different problem. I could program the Homelink but when I programmed the keypad on the outside of the garage the Homelink would stop working. I have a Genie opener and contacted Genie. The problem was that the Genie will only hold so many codes. I was instructed to hold the button on the Genie in until the indicator light stopped blinking. This cleared all the old codes from the Genie and then I could program the Homelink, key pad, and another remote.
#19 of 21 2013 Highlander Homelink Programming - My solution
Jun 30, 2013 (5:07 pm)
Read through the thread and tried everything but couldn't get my 2013 Highlander Homelink to work with my garage genie, it's an older model but not first generation (Garage Genie IS550/A I believe). I followed the manual instructions to the letter and I could tell that the car had accepted the remote's code but the garage head unit wasn't recognizing it. I tried using the garage genie remote while getting the GHU to learn but no go.
My last ditch attempt was to move the car as close to the GHU as possible. I'm an engineer and with the distance I was at and what I figured the frequencies were, the homelink shouldn't have had a problem reaching the GHU, unless the homelink with the car ignition off is really low power. I parked right under the GHU, pressed the learn button, pressed the Homelink button in the Highlander that was already programmed to the existing remote and the indicator light on the GHU turned from blinking to solid (to signify it's in learn mode has received the code and is ready for the 2nd confirmation press), pressed the homelink button again and the learn indicator extinguished. Backed the car out and bingo! Worked like a champ.
So there's a tip...first off try doing it with the engine running, it's possible when on car battery power the homelink goes into a low power transmitter mode (this is an educated guess at best), if that doesn't work get your homelink as close to your garage door opener unit is possible. Good luck everybody!

But when I start my ford it will idle if it's cold bit if you drive it and heat up the engine it won't idle. Can some one please help me. What could be causing this problem.
