The GARAGE DOOR opener is tricky but EASY.

1. Reset by pressing the far left and far right buttons. about 20secs
2. Get your normal garage door opener and click one of the buttons (I chose the left) and click the garage door opener. (You have to do this at the same time for about 3 seconds -- the light will blink)
3. NOW is the trick. You have to go to the Garage Door opener inside the garage (The actual door lifter) and press the LEARN button. Once you press that you have to run to your car (Within 30 secs) Make sure that the light at the garage opener is blinking.
4. Go to your car and click on the left button for about 3 seconds (The blink will change) =-- you have to do that about 3 times for about 3 sends each. (Just watch for the lights to change blinking pattern).

Your door will start opening and closing
