BTW - ignitiion is on, I've changed out the batteries on both remotes, and I'm using the full sized remotes... nada. I have a rolling code opener but I can't even get to the learning code part because the remote and homelink button aren't syncing.
yeah, literally, you gotta touch your garage remote control to the mirror housing. How stupid is that?!

I tried like 100x to get it to sync with no avail, then the 101st time after read the fourms and the tip on touching the remote, I touch the remote to the mirror itself and viola, it worked. wtf...

Anyone with experience with the Chamberlain ProDrive systems?

I have a PD612DM and I can't get the sync to work.

I can't find any code repeater box but I'm looking on the website

Says "Security+ anti-burglary technology assures a new code is sent every time the remote control is used" - so I assume it has the variable code system.

If anyone has set one of these up and can direct me that would be helpful, thanks!

Thumbs up

Holding the handheld transmitter against the mirror housing is the tip that did it for me!

Just installed a Chamberlain garage door opener (Model LW3000EV purchased from Lowes). My 2013 E92 M3 would not accept the code from the handheld for the new garage door opener.

Read about Chamberlain MyQ Security+ 2.0 and lack of backward compatibility
with my BMW and so purchased the HomeLink Compatibility Repeater (from Amazon).

Despite not having had any problems previously programming the vehicle to operate several other garage door openers (e.g., Liftmaster and Chamberlain), could not get vehicle to accept code from the HomeLink repeater handheld unit (regardless of where I positioned the handheld transmitter).

After reading this thread, held the transmitter against the mirror housing and it worked the first time. Was able to complete programming in 10 minutes after that.

Thanks for the tip - I was getting ready to send the repeater back and abandon use of the integrated HomeLink capability in the car. It's much nicer to have one less item kicking around in the car .

If you have the smart learn button you have to press that, then pair with the home link then pair again with a remote. Took me a few times

So when I pair here is what is do.

1 clear all settings
2 have mirror learn by holding remote and desired button
3 push learn on garage door
4 press and hold the mirror button for 1 second release press again for one second and in the last time it works.

This technique worked on 5-6 (02, 04, 07, 08, 11, 11, 12, 13, 17, 17)different BMW's as well as my F150 and the wife's new Range Rover Sport (supercharged V8). I have had 3-4 different garage door openers and the last one is only 6 months old. So this technique seems to always work.
