I've followed the instructions in the owners manual numerous times. Tried every sequence I could think of and still can't get the garage door opener to operate my garage door.
Yes, its a Genie and has a learn button.

Had trouble getting mine to work as well when I first got my MKC. My salesman actually came over to the house and did it for me -- if all else fails, maybe try to get your salesman to do the same for you. Good luck.

The Homelink technology is the same on EVERY car that has it, so there is nothing unique about the transmitter in the MKC.

Had same problem. For some brands (especially if older model)you need the original handheld to "program" to the homelink...then you can program your buttons. Not sure if you tried it but take your handheld clicker as the manual states and hold down the buttons they say while pointing the clicker at the homelink buttons... It will flash buttons when done (sorry don't have manual in front of me and can't remember exactly). After that hit your learn button on the garage door opener unit and select your homelink button following the directions.

It's all in the manual, follow it closely. We have two door openers and one we could just push the learn button without using the handheld first, but the other would not program until we went through the procedure for the handheld. Good luck!

SOLVED:
I was using the current transmitter I had purchased as a replacement for a "fob type" I had broken.
When you purchase a new transmitter it is equipped to work with all the Genie products, not just the one you own. Numerous attempts with the new transmitter failed to behave as indicated in the owners manual.
So, I thought, (like another poster said) its off the shelf tech, its probably NOT the MKC, its probably not the garage door motor as I have programmed other tranmitters. What's left? The transmitter itself.
SO I dug out the old fob transmitter that came with the opener and tried again.
About 30 seconds later, I'm in! Worked a treat!

So, having problems? Try using the OEM transmitter.

SOLVED another way:


I had this same problem and it drove me crazy all day. I have an older Genie Excelerator opener with a Genie Intellicode remotes. I followed every instruction in the owner's manual and couldn't get it to work. I even called Homelink customer support and they couldn't help me in the end.


Then later that night I remember I had a 3rd party remote opener 'Clicker' that had two buttons. Then BAM first try it worked with the button the Clicker was programmed to.


So having problems even with the Genie Universal remote? Try using a 3rd party remote like clicker.

Door doesn't open properly either. It opens and closes using the wall device; it opens with the remote in the car but will not close. I've gone through three remotes. Oddly, after I reset the codes, replace batteries in them, etc., it will sometimes work once, and then not again. it is driving me insane.Then i contact Locksmith Margate and they help me in easy way.

When we had our new garage doors installed by Locksmiths in South Miami, they also put in the Genie Professional Line, which is a screw drive in one continuous piece and a heavy duty 1 HP DC motor. We have never had any problems with them.

Sometimes you read the manual and still the problem has not been fixed. It's because you don't know actually how to do that thing and in which manner. Garage Door Repair specialist can help the best with it as they know how to install and how to repair those doors.

I am really having a hard time looking for the switch that will fit in the handlebar of my good garage door opener. Can you help me get the model code of that switch? Thanks.

You might try re-phrasing the question. I am not sure what "handlebar", "switch" terms are- maybe a picture. And 'good garage door opener" , what brand?
