Programming Your Homelink Garage Door Opener for the First Time

  1. Make sure your remote control transmitter has a fresh battery.
  2. With your car parked facing your garage, start the ignition.
  3. Locate your HomeLink® buttons, which will be in one of three places: your rearview mirror, your visor, or your overhead console.
  4. Holding your remote control transmitter 1 to 3 inches away from your HomeLink® control buttons, simultaneously press the desired HomeLink® control button and the corresponding remote control button.
  5. Hold the button until the HomeLink® indicator light flashes slowly and then it either changes to a solid light or flashes rapidly.
  6. The change indicates that a frequency signal was detected.
  7. If the HomeLink® indicator light is solid, programming is complete. If the HomeLink® indicator light flashes rapidly continuously, follow the next step below.
  8. Push the HomeLink® controller button twice to activate. If that doesn’t work, follow the next group of steps.

When the HomeLink® indicator light flashes rapidly continuously, it’s because you have a rolling code system. To complete the programming, follow the additional steps below.

  1. Exit the car and enter your garage, and locate the garage door opener motor.
  2. Find the “Learn” or “Smart” button, which is next to the hanging antenna wire on the back of the motor.
  3. Press the Learn button once, and you will have 30 seconds to complete the next step.
  4. Return to the vehicle, and push the programmed HomeLink® control button three times to complete the activation process.
  5. Repeat the previous four steps for the remaining two HomeLink® buttons, and your garage door should be activated.
  6. Once programmed, the HomeLink® wireless control system and the original remote control transmitter can each be used to operate your garage door.
