There are two types of Garage Door Opener - those that use a rolling code and those that use a fixed code. A rolling code means that every time you open or close your garage, the remote and the motor mounted to the garage ceiling communicate and agree upon a new and unique code. The benefit is that it is less likely that someone can intercept your code and use it to access your garage while you aren't home. Fixed code systems (which are usually much older) pose this security threat, but are easier to program into your Audi's Homelink.
If you have your Garage Door Opener instruction manual handy, it will tell you if you have a fixed code or a rolling code system. If you have no idea where your manual has gone, don't worry - try following the steps shown in the video below. If it doesn't work, you will know you need to add the additional steps for the rolling code. One way or the other, have a sturdy ladder set up underneath your garage door opener motor (and exercise caution when programming, as your door may open and close as you do this). Here are the basic fixed code programming instructions:
