Make sure you try it with fresh batteries in your garage remote. I remember having the same issue and having to use the purple button on the opener itself to sync up my homelink

What make is your garage door opener? I had a Stanley and it worked. I have a Chamberland and it doesn't.

like mentioned earlier you need to program your garage opener itself.

After you do the steps to get your homelink programed get a step stool or ladder if you need it and go to your opener (the thing that runs your garage door up and down) and there will be a program/reset/etc.. button on it. Press that button THEN you can climb off your step stool, sit in your car, and press your homelink button in that you just programed. It should pick up the signal and work just fine.

Have had to do this 3 times on my car for 3 different openers.

Should work perfect after that!
