■Codes stored in the Home- Link memory

  • The registered codes are not erased even if the battery cable is disconnected.
  • If learning failed when registering a different code to a HomeLink button that already has a code registered to it, the already registered code will not be erased.

WARNING

■When programming a garage door or other remote control device

The garage door or other device may operate, so ensure people and objects are out of danger to prevent potential harm.

■Conforming to federal safety standards

Do not use the HomeLink compatible transceiver with any garage door opener or device that lacks safety stop and reverse features as required by federal safety standards.

This includes any garage door that cannot detect an interfering object. A door or device without these features increases the risk of death or serious injury.

■When operating or programming HomeLink

Never allow a child to operate or play with the HomeLink buttons.

Programming the Home- Link

■ Before programming Home- Link

  • During programming, it is possible that garage doors, gates, or other devices may operate. For this reason, make sure that people and objects are clear of the garage door or other devices to prevent injury or other potential harm.
  • It is recommended that a new battery be placed in the remote control transmitter for more accurate programming.
  • Garage door opener motors manufactured after 1995 may be equipped with rolling code protection. If this is the case, you may need a stepladder or other sturdy, safe device to reach the "Learn" or "Smart" button on the garage door opener motor.

■ Programming HomeLink

Steps 1 through 3 must be performed within 60 seconds, otherwise the indicator light will stop flashing and programming will not be able to be completed.

1. Press and release the Home- Link button you want to program and check that the HomeLink indicator light flashes (orange).

2. Point the remote control transmitter for the device at the rear view mirror, 1 to 3 in. (25 to 75 mm) from the HomeLink buttons.

Keep the HomeLink indicator light in view while programming.

3. Program a device.

Programming a device other than an entry gate (for U.S.A.owners)

Programming an entry gate (for U.S.A. owners)/Programming a device in the Canadian market

Press and release the remote control transmitter button at 2 second intervals, repeatedly, until the HomeLink indicator light changes from slowly flashing (orange) to rapidly flashing (green) (rolling code) or continuously lit (green) (fixed code).

4. Test the HomeLink operation by pressing the newly programmed button and observing the indicator light:

  • Indicator light illuminates: Programming of a fixed code device has completed. The garage door or other device should operate when a Home- Link button is pressed and released.
  • Indicator light flashes rapidly: The garage door opener motor or other device is equipped with a rolling code.

    To complete programming, firmly press and hold the HomeLink button for 2 seconds then release it.

  • If the garage door or other device does not operate, proceed to "Programming a rolling code system".

5. Repeat the steps above to program another device for any of the remaining Home- Link buttons.

■ Programming a rolling code system

2 or more people may be necessary to complete rolling code programming.

1. Locate the "Learn" or "Smart" button on the garage door opener motor in the garage.

This button can usually be found where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the unit. The name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer. Refer to the owner's manual supplied with the garage door opener motor for details.

3. Press and hold the desired HomeLink button (inside the vehicle) for 2 seconds and release it. Repeat this sequence (press/hold/release) up to 3 times to complete programming.

If the garage door opener motor operates when the HomeLink button is pressed, the garage door opener motor recognizes the HomeLink signal.

■ Enabling 2-way communication with a garage door (only available for compatible devices)

When enabled, 2-way communication allows you to check the status of the opening and closing of a garage door through indicators in your vehicle.

2-way communication is only available if the garage door opener motor used is a compatible device. (To check device compatibility, refer to www.homelink.com.)

1. Within 5 seconds after programming the garage door opener has been completed, if the garage door opener motor is trained to Home- Link, both garage door operation indicators will flash rapidly (green) and the light on the garage door opener motor will blink twice, indicating that 2-way communication is enabled.

If the indicators do not flash, perform 2 and 3 within the first 10 presses of the HomeLink button after programming has been completed.

2. Press a programmed Home- Link button to operate a garage door.

3. Within 1 minute of pressing the HomeLink button, after the garage door operation has stopped, press the "Learn" or "Smart" button on the garage door opener motor. Within 5 seconds of the establishment of 2-way communication with the garage door opener, both garage door operation indicators in the vehicle will flash rapidly (green) and the light on the garage door opener motor will blink twice, indicating that 2-way communication is enabled.

■ Reprogramming a single HomeLink button

When the following procedure is performed, buttons which already have devices registered to them can be overwritten:

1. With one hand, press and hold the desired HomeLink button.

2. When the HomeLink indicator starts flashing (orange), continue to hold the HomeLink button and perform "Programming HomeLink" 1 (it takes 20 seconds for the HomeLink indicator to start flashing).

■Before programming

  • Install a new battery in the transmitter.
  • The battery side of the transmitter must be pointed away from the HomeLink.

Operating HomeLink

Press the appropriate Home- Link button. The HomeLink indicator light should turn on.

The indicators can operate within approximately 820 ft. (250 m) of the garage door. However, if there are obstructions between the garage door and the vehicle, such as houses and trees, feedback signals from the garage door may not be received.
