Found on Fixya.com; # Turn off the engine. # Erase the factory test codes by pressing buttons 1 and 3. Release the buttons when the two green lights begin to flash (about 20 seconds ). # Choose one of the three buttons to train. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter 1-3 inches (5-14 cm) away from the lower left corner of the EVIC display while keeping the display in view. # Simultaneously press and hold both the desired Transmitter button and the hand-held transmitter button. After a short time, the message TRAINING will show on Transmitter display. Do not release the buttons until the message TRAINED appears on the display (this may take as long as 60 seconds ), release both the Transmitter and hand-held transmitter buttons. # Press and hold the just-trained Transmitter button. TRANSMIT should appear on the display. If your device activates when the Transmitter button is depressed and released, programming is complete. To train the other buttons, repeat the process. Be sure to keep your hand-held transmitter in case you need to retrain the universal transmitter. NOTE: If the message TRANSMIT appears on the Transmitter display but your device does not activate, the device may be equipped with a "rolling code" system. Continue with steps six through eight below to complete the programming of a rolling code equipped device (most commonly a garage door opener). # 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. Firmly press and release the "learn" or "smart" button. (The name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer.) NOTE: There are 30 seconds in which to initiate the next step. # Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold for two seconds and release the programmed Transmitter 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 programming process. # Transmitter should now activate your rolling code equipped device. To program the remaining two buttons, simply repeat the process.
