PRJIM, what Model S code version do you have? We have the latest (as of Sunday, 12/9) and homelink was dead simple. I left the car in the garage and just followed the instructions on the screen. Worked like a charm on our Chamberlain LiftMaster.
Twilight Blue Roadster 2.5 - #1098 / Grey Model S Performance - #1459
Sometimes there is a learn button on the opener itself that must be pressed first and gives you time to get down off he step ladder to program. Also in Canada there are different instructions for Homelink. My Lexus came with a separate sheet for Canada. Also if he garage door seems to burn out try unplugging for a few minutes and let the motor protection reset. It's there to save the motor when setting up your garage opener with all the opening and closing. Hope this helps at least a few of your problems.
Feature enhancement for Homelink: I wish we could specify the distance (radius?) away from the garage door that the button appears. The button for my garage, for example, only auto presents about 10' in front of the door and I have to wait or manually activate the homelink button (sigh) so I can open the door as I drive toward my house (about 100'). The homelink function works perfectly, I would just like to specify how far away the button shows up.
Having said that, Tesla is the only car that I know of that (due to its touch interface vs. hard buttons) is geo aware and presents the correct opener button when near that garage. Its a VERY cool feature that I hope will only get better in future software rev.
Same issue here. Geo aware Homelink only activates a few feet in front of the garage door.
