The door opens fine with a wall switch, but I can't get the car remote to open it. I can't program it with a remote therefore in the usual way.

Is it possible to teach the car to open it or do I have to get a remote programmed first?


Trying to program your car to open your garage door is the least of your problem....I would be more worried about the previous tenants still possibly having the hand held remote and accessing your garage/house when you are not there...
