Has anyone tried programming the opener for an entrance gate? My gate uses 433.94 MHz with a 16 bit security code. The remote says it can be used with any transmitter that will receive a 26 bit input, but the code is only 16 bit. Will our openers transmit this? I've tried both methods of programming, but nothing seems to work.

Thanks for reading.

I would assume 26bit is the Max, but would accept shorter passphrases.

I have my remote entry working with an old garage door opener (from roughly 2000). Don't know if that helps any. :)

I have Sears garage door openers that work with the built in Home Link system in my Regal. The Sears openers work at 390 MHz. Why do you think your vehicle will work with a 433.94 MHz system. I'm assuming when you say "opener" you mean Home Link?

Yes, I mean Home Link. I have no information that indicates what frequency, or frequencies, the Home Link system can transmit on. Nor do I have any knowledge of whether or not it has the ability to scan various frequencies. That's why I'm asking.

You may want to check with Homelink directly on your gate opener and 2015 compatibility. Some of the garage door openers required a interface signal module in the garage to work with the Homelink in the vehicle.

We still have the 30 year old Sears openers also. After repairs and 1 replacement from lightening strike. I found it’s a distance issue more than even revolving code adaption. I added a antenna extension which helps (old tv telescopic) and it works fine but still have to be fairly close and depends on button press in duration it seems.
