Lost Homelink/garage Settings

Has anyone ever lost their garage door functionality? I have one rolling code opener and one fixed old style opener and when I left my house this morning it didn't work for either door. I'll check it out this weekend, but it appears the car just lost the coding.

Ever heard of this?

Strange indeed. This just happen to me also. I have three garage doors with openers, and the car (750i) was set to open each door. The buttons on the mirror just failed to function. I have attempted numerous times, but no way can I reprogram the car to receive the signal from the garage door opener. I know the door opener is sending the signal because I can clear the codes from my 550i and reprogram with no problem. The 750 - nine. Anyway, it goes back to the dealer on Monday for regular scheduled service. Will advise what happens re the car garage door openers.

Broken Garage buttons...

My 760 (2007) garage door opener buttons on the mirror don't respond when I try to get the LED to flash. I have not used them in a long time, but it seems really random that such a simple thing would fail. I have held 1 and 3 for over several minutes, it's dead.

I hope it's not another $1000.00 trip to the dealer?

Any thoughts? I wonder if it is already cleared do you have to get the LED to program it, or can you program them without the led flashing?

Thanks,

Ed

Mine had this happen a few months ago, but reprogrammed and all has been fine.


Does it drive anyone else nuts they don't work when the engine isn't on?

security feature to help prevent folks from breaking into your home.

Hold the first and third button for 25 seconds to reset all the buttons and then try to reprogram. Follow the instructions on the homelink site.

If the car is on but engine doesn't start it should still do it. First car I've owned that doesn't.
