Basically, what the manual omits, is to tell you that once the button you are trying to program, responds to your current garage door opener, you then have to proceed - to push the "learn" button on your garage door motor head unit, and then press the button you are trying to program the stated 3 times. This small step is MISSING (:mad:) in the Owners Manual and even on a DIY Video I saw from BMW North America.

Good Luck Everyone !!!
