I found this on a Kia forum, is there anything in here that will help, looks like it's a little trick on the timing on the buttons............."Press the two outside homelink buttons (house 1 and house 3 on mine) and hold for 20 seconds till the red light starts blinking slowly. Once it's blinking slowly hold the garage door opener close to the mirror and hit the open button till the light starts blinking quickly. This means that it's programmed. If it still doesn't operate the garage door, you probably have one with rolling code technology, so there's an additional step. Press the learn button on your garage door opener and within 30 seconds press the newly programmed homelink button. Done. Oh yeah,you have to hold the button for a second or so to make it work once it's programmed. "
