Programming Steps 8-10 to complete programming of
a rolling code equipped device (most commonly a
garage door opener).
8. At the garage door opener receiver (motor-head unit)
in the garage, locate the “learn” or “smart” button. This
can usually be found where the hanging antenna wire is
attached to the motor-head unit.
9. Firmly press and release the “learn” or “smart” but-

There are 30 seconds in which to initiate Step 10.
10. Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold for two
seconds and release the programmed universal trans-
ceiver button. Repeat the “press/hold/release” sequence
a second time, and, depending on the brand of the garage
door opener (or other rolling code equipped device),
repeat this sequence a third time to complete the pro-
The universal transceiver should now activate your roll-

Gate Operator/Canadian Programming
Canadian radio-frequency laws require transmitter sig-
nals to “time-out” (or quit) after several seconds of
transmission. This may not be long enough for the
universal transceiver to pick up the signal during pro-
gramming. Similar to this Canadian law, some U.S. gate
operators are designed to “time-out” in the same manner.
If you live in Canada or you are having difficulties
programming a gate operator by using the programming
procedures (regardless of where you live), replace Pro-
gramming Step 5 with the following:
If programming a garage door opener or gate
operator, it is advised to unplug the device during the
“cycling” process to prevent possible overheating.
