Pretty sure you need the remote.

How old is the garage door unit?

If it has dip switches on the motor unit itself, get a cheap remote from radio shack, etc.

Copy the dip switch positions on the new remote and you have a new remote.

Your gonna need the remote - unless your wall control is wireless - then you could take it off the wall and use it like a remote.

But I'm gonna guess that your wall control is wired as most are.

You need a remote or wireless keypad to program the homelink in your car. You can buy the universal ones pretty cheap.

Should be possible if your garage door opener has a "learn" button on it. Grab your ladder and take a look at your opener. You may have to remove the light cover. The button may be near where the wires from your push button inside the garage is wired. Push the button on your garage opener, then push the button on your homelink until the garage opener light flashes.

Of course you need to use the 'Learn' button - but you also need the remote.

Here are the instructions:

Homelink System Installation

1. Park either inside the garage or have your car parked on driveway facing the garage as close as possible.

2. Press and hold the first and third button of the homelink buttons for approximately 20 seconds, until the red light starts blinking rapidly.

3. Press the button (1,2, or 3) you desire to have installed and hold it. The red light will be blinking slowly.

4. With the garage opener remote near the rear view mirror (1~4 inches near), press and hold the remote button while you are still holding the desired button on your homelink system. The red light will eventually blink rapidly. If so, release both buttons.

5. Next, go to the garage opener’s main console (it’s most likely the garage opener’s motor with the light turned on when opened/closed)

6. Search for a button that reads “learn”, “read”, or a noticeable button on your console. There aren’t a lot of buttons on that console, so you’ll most likely find it.

7. Press the button, and a light adjacent to the button will flash/blink. You have a 30 second window to finalize the installation.

8. Go back in the car, press and hold that button you desired to have installed and the light will blink rapidly for like 2 seconds and stop blinking (light will be on). Release the button and press/hold again. Repeat this two more times (A total of THREE times) and voila! The garage door will open/close!
