05 Lincoln Towncar garage door transmitter

Just bought this car and no manual or instructions as to how to program the 3 buttons to open the garage door. These 3 buttons are up above the rear view mirror near the map lights. Tried holding both the car and a remote I have in my hand buttons down and waiting for a blink or aknowledgement, but to no avail. Can anyone assist in how this procedure should be done, or recommend a good sight with instructions? Thanks in advance for any help!

I found this site that takes you to the Lincoln Owners Manual where there are clear instructions for both removing previous programing and then reprograming the new hand held transmitter into your vehicle. I hope this also helps.

Try this and post back the results.

Press the universal button to "Train" the transmitter.

NOTE: If more than one button is pressed, priority will be given to the lowest numbered channel.

Press and continuously hold the button for 20 seconds. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT will be displayed (X will be 1, 2 or 3) during this time.

NOTE: If the channel being trained has not been previously trained, the channel will immediately enter training mode (no 20second delay).

After 20 seconds, the display will read CHANNEL X TRAINING to indicate training has started.

Point the original garage door opener transmitter at the overhead console.

Hold down the original transmitter's transmit button so the overhead console can learn the original transmitter's frequency and data stream.

Training will be completed in 100 seconds or less. CHANNEL X TRAINED will be displayed when training is complete.

DID NOT TRAIN will be displayed if the channel did not correctly train.

NOTE: Additional training may be required for rolling code equipped devices.

For additional information, refer to "Rolling Code" Programming in this section.

Release the channel X button. Training is complete.

Rolling Code Programming

NOTE: To train a garage door opener (or other rolling code-equipped devices) with the rolling code feature, follow these instructions after completing the learn mode.

Locate the learn or smart button on the garage door motor head unit. Exact location and color of the button may vary by product brand.

Press and release the learn or smart button on the garage door motor head unit.

NOTE: Following the previous step, there are 30 seconds in which to proceed.

Press and release the programmed universal transmitter button.

Press and release the universal transmitter button a second time to complete the training process. (some garage door openers may require this procedure to be done a third time to complete the training.)

Transmit Mode

Select the button for the desired channel (for example, for the garage door you wish to open).

NOTE: If more than one button is pressed, priority will be given to the lowest numbered channel.

Press the button. CHANNEL X TRANSMIT is displayed.

The correct signal is transmitted to the device being controlled.

Release the button.

Erase Mode1. Simultaneously press and hold buttons 1 and 3 for 20 seconds.

CLEARING CHANNELS will be displayed while the channel codes are being erased.

CHANNELS CLEARED will be displayed when the erase operation is complete.

Release buttons 1 and 3.

Universal Transmitter Default Code Mode Loading

Press and hold buttons 1 and 3 simultaneously. CLEARING CHANNELS is displayed.

After 20 seconds, CHANNELS CLEARED is displayed. Continue to hold buttons.

After 10 more seconds, CHANNELS DEFAULTED is displayed when the default codes have been successfully loaded

oh my...

you have homelink 3 button console.
1. press 2 buttons down simultaneously and hold for about 20 seconds. don't press too hard, done that! you have erased all stored codes.
2. grab any 3 remotes for any 3 devices you want to setup.
3. leave your property and drive away, maybe 100 yrads so that remotes don't open this or that.
4. get remote 1 close to button one. CLOSE. press button 1 and hold, press button on remote and hold.
5. light on the console will start flashing, sort of slowly. takes anywhere between 20 and 30 seconds for homelink to learn codes (have done this on several diff makes, i know), so don't give up and hold them buttons down
6. at some point, flashing will change to rapid one. RAPID. release both buttons.
7. repeat steps for 2 other buttons/remotes.

be gentle with them homelink buttons. flimsy pos, if you press hard, you mess 'm up and they stop working. have 'm on chevy, lexus, camry - all the same. very touchy.
