I've found them temperamental at best. It's definitely as simple as holding the transmitter button in the car and then the garage remote to get the frequency programmed. But the distance from the remote to car transmitter needs to be right. I recall having to try different distances and angles to finally get it accepted. Once you get the frequency right, it's just a matter of pressing the LEARN button on the back of your garage dor opener and pressing the transmitter button in the car.

Keep trying. It's most likely *not* you!
