They all seem to usually work. They don’t have to be an exact model.

To start the process jump inside the vehicle and look up towards the rear of your mirror you’re looking for three buttons that have home icons written on them you can use the same method to program all three buttons.
But we’re just going to program the first button now. First we need to reset all the codes and even if your vehicle is brand new I think it’s important to do this just to wipe it completely clean.
To reset the unit, you need to hold 1st and 3rd buttons with your hands for about 15 to 20 seconds until you see the red indicator light flash repeatedly.
To program your vehicle hold your garage door open or about three inches away from it and you want to push and hold your garage door opener and the first button on the rear of your mirror at the same time and hold them until you see the red light flash repeatedly.
It doesn’t work on every garage door opener but if it works on yours you’ll be able to push and hold that first button for about a second and then your garage door should open.
If it doesn’t work we have to go through an additional step together it actually didn’t work on my garage door so what you’ll have to do is go into the garage and get out a ladder climb up to your garage door unit and pry off one of the back covers you’ll see a button that’s marked LEARN on the back.
It was a red button and once you push the red button you’ll have 30 seconds to run back to your vehicle start it up and then push and hold that first home button again once the indicator light flashes.
That means that your car has been programmed with your garage door opener code and it should work. Just note that this is not like a cap when you want to activate their garage door you’re actually going to have to push and hold the home button for about one second to activate your garage door.
