Problem with Homelink and Rolling code garage door openers.
My problem: I have a LiftMaster Professional Series garage door opener (made by Chamberlain) with rolling code technology. I cannot figure out how get the homelink to learn the program. I have tried many, many times, following the owners manual instructions to a "T" and I have reviewed the instructions at Homelink's website to see if I was missing something...and still no luck. I have even erased and reprogrammed my original remotes / keypad to see if there was a problem with the "learn" feature of the opener. They programmed fine and almost right away. I cannot get this to work and it is VERY frustrating. I am hoping someone here has had this problem and was able fix it.
I know I have read something regarding this before on here, just can't remember. I think Mr. Incredible has done it or knows how to do it with a rolling code, but I could be mistaken. Search around the forum and you might find some info from older posts. Wish I could help. Good luck.
The instructions provided by "Concrete" are complete. Just follow the directions and remember:
You must first use the hand-held transmitter that came with your opener, by pressing the button you want on homelink and the transmitter button at the same time. Ensure handheld transmitter is 3-6 inches away from your homelink button. Then, go into your garage, locate the "learn" or "train" button on your garage door opener (may need a ladder and with Chamberlain, I think its on the right-hand side of the opener as you're looking at it standing at your garagae door looking into your garage...), punch the learn button (a light (LED) will light up) and within 30 seconds, go back to your car and push the same button on homelink that you just pushed in the previous step and hold for 2 seconds, release, then push it again for 2 seconds and release. That should do it. I hope this helps.

Thanks for all the responses. I now have it working!!
My problem was, I wrongly thought that with a rolling code opener that I didn't need to do the tranmitter 3-6inches away thing first. I thought I just needed to press the learn button on the opener and go from there. Thanks for the clue in threehundred-see!
Here's how I programmed the Homelink in my 2005 300C:
1: Clear all codes by holding down the 2 outside buttons for 30 seconds.
2. Pick a button to program - Press the garage door remote and the selected button simultaneously for approximately 20 seconds, or until EVIC says button trained (YOU ARE NOT DONE YET - you need to make the newly programmed button "teach" the overhead garage door motor that this is the new button.
3. Find the "Learn" button on the garage door opener. Press it and, within 30 seconds, go to the car and press and release (2 second intervals) the newly trained button three or four times until the garage door operates.
