Put the garage remote close to the rear view mirror where the homelink buttons are located. Press the remote and while keeping it depressed, press the homelink button (3 of them so it depends on which one you want to use). Keep both buttons depressed until you see the homelink yellow led start flashing. It will then stop. It has now learned the frequency of your garage remote. Then try it and see if it works.

Of the garage's I have linked to, both required me to press the button on the garage door opener (the motor, etc.) itself after linking the remote. It's a 2 stage code. That might be the issue you are experiencing. The manual explains this in a bit more detail. Good luck!

Here is a link for Lift Master manuals

Have you made it past step one - to get the HomeLink in the car to learn the Lift Master remote?

This is a summary from page 110 of the owners manual.

1. Turn on the ignition (insert key and press Start/Stop with foot off the brake/clutch)
2. Press and hold 2 outer memory buttons on the mirror until LED flashes to delete all programs
3. Hold your current remote ~2 inches away from memory buttons.
4. Press and hold both the open-door button on remote and one of the 3 memory buttons on the mirror. LED will flash slowly at first, as soon as LED starts flashing rapidly release both buttons. If LED does not start flashing rapidly after 15 seconds, alter distance and repeat.

Now after you get past this you need to read the instructions for your garage door opener for it to pair your Homelink remote.

On my garage openers, there is a "learn" button you press on the motor housing near the 60W light bulbs. You then have 60 seconds to press the memory button you just finished programming in the car. Once you do that the two are paired and you are done.

How many garage doors do you have?

If you are doing only one door you should be fine. Have you had any luck yet? If not where are you getting stuck?

The learn button is a good sized square button on the opener engine up at the ceiling. It may be on the side farthest from the garage door and/or inside the lighting compartment. I have a lift master and it is exposed on the side farthest from the garage door. It is a purple button on mine.

Can you post your garage opener model number?

I took a look at the online manual on LiftMaster's website. But there are several models, I just picked one at random. If they are consistent then the learn button is on the back side of the unit. Maybe you have to take the white light cover off, on this one it is the upper right from the light fixture.

The picture above is correct. The Learn button is on the back of the unit, upper right. I can't tell from the manual but you may have to remove the white plastic light cover.
