In my case I had to use a full-size opener to do the programming, and even then I had to use a brand new battery for that opener, and have my car's engine running. If I tried using a key-chain opener, an opener w/ a slightly old battery, and/or had the engine off, the programming just wouldn't take. Once it's programmed it works well though. Mine's opened my garage doors every time I tried, and from a pretty decent distance too
