HomeLink Wireless Control System
Make sure that the garage door and security device are free from obstruction when you are programming. Do not program the system with the vehicle in the garage.
Do not use the system with any garage door opener that does not have the safety stop and reverse feature as required by U.S. Federal Safety Standards (this includes any garage door opener manufactured before April 1, 1982). A garage door opener which cannot detect an object, signaling the door to stop and reverse, does not meet current federal safety standards. Using a garage door opener without these features increases the risk of serious injury or death.
Make sure you keep the original remote control transmitter for use in other vehicles as well as for future system programming.
We recommend that upon the sale or lease termination of your vehicle, you erase the programmed function buttons for security reasons. See Erasing the Function Button Codes later in this section.
You can program a maximum of three devices. To change or replace any of the three devices after it has been initially programmed, you must first erase the current settings. See Erasing the Function Button Codes.
The universal garage door opener replaces the common hand-held garage door opener with a three-button transmitter integrated into the driver’s sun visor.
The system includes two primary features, a garage door opener and a platform for remote activation of devices within the home. You can program garage doors as well as entry gate operators, security systems, entry door locks and home or office lighting.

This process is to program your in-vehicle HomeLink function button with your hand-held transmitter.
The programming steps below assume you will be programming HomeLink that was not previously programmed. If your HomeLink was previously programmed, you may need to erase your HomeLink buttons. See Erasing the Function Button Codes.
Put a new battery in the hand-held transmitter. This helps ensure quicker training and accurate transmission of the radio-frequency signal.
- With your vehicle parked outside of the garage, switch your ignition to the on position, but do not start your vehicle.
- Press and release the function button that you would like to program.
- Hold your hand-held garage door transmitter
1–3 in (2–8 cm) away from the HomeLink button you want to program.
- Press and hold the hand-held transmitter button you want to program while watching the indicator light on HomeLink. Continue to hold the hand-held button until the HomeLink indicator light flashes rapidly or is continuously on.
You may need to use a different method if you live in Canada or have difficulties programming your gate operator or garage door opener. See Gate Operator / Canadian Programming.
- Press and hold the HomeLink button you programmed for two seconds, then release. You may need to do this twice to activate the door. If your garage door does not operate, watch the HomeLink indicator light.
If the indicator light stays on, the programming is complete. Your device should activate when the HomeLink button is pressed and released.
If the indicator light flashes rapidly, press and hold for two seconds and release the programmed HomeLink button. Repeat the "press/hold/release" sequence up to three times to complete the programming process. If your device still does not operate, you must program your garage door. See Programming Your Garage Door Opener Motor.
To program additional buttons, repeat Steps 1 – 4.

Programming Your Garage Door Opener Motor
You may need a ladder to reach the unit and you may need to remove the cover or lamp lens on your garage door opener.
- Press the learn button on the garage door opener motor and then you have 30 seconds to complete the next two steps.
- Return to your vehicle.
- Press and hold the function button you want to program for 2 seconds, then release. Repeat this step. Depending on your brand of garage door opener, you may need to repeat this sequence a third time.
Gate Operator / Canadian Programming
Canadian radio-frequency laws require transmitter signals to “time-out” (or quit) after several seconds of transmission – which may not be long enough for HomeLink to pick up the signal during programming. Similar to this Canadian law, some U.S. gate operators are designed to “time-out” in the same manner.
If programming a garage door opener or gate operator, it is advised to unplug the device during the “cycling” process to prevent possible overheating.
- Press and release, every two seconds, your hand-held transmitter until the HomeLink indicator light changes to a rapidly blinking or continuously on light.
- Release the hand-held transmitter button.
- Continue programing HomeLink. See In-Vehicle Programming, Step 4.
Erasing the Function Button Codes
You cannot erase individual buttons.
- Press and hold the outer two function buttons simultaneously for approximately 10 seconds until the indicator light above the buttons flashes rapidly.
- When the indicator light flashes, release the buttons. You erased the codes for all buttons.
Reprogramming a Single Button
To program a device to a previously trained button, follow these steps:
- Press and hold the desired button. Do NOT release the button.
- The indicator light begins to flash after 20 seconds. Without releasing the button, follow Step 1 in the Programming section.
