Garage door opener programming in the U.S.A


When programming the HomeLink® Wireless Control System for a garage door opener, it is suggested that you park the vehicle outside the garage.

1. Unplug the motor of the garage door opener from the outlet.


When reprogramming any of the HomeLink® buttons that are already programmed for other devices, perform the procedure in step 2.

2. Press and hold the two outside

2. Press and hold the two outside HomeLink® buttons until the indicator light begins to flash (after 10 seconds). Release both buttons.

3. Hold the end of the garage door opener’s hand-held transmitter between 1 and 3 inches (25 and 76 mm) away from the HomeLink® buttons on the driver’s sun visor, keeping the indicator light in view.

4. Using both hands, simultaneously

4. Using both hands, simultaneously push the hand-held transmitter button and the desired HomeLink® button. DO NOT release the buttons until step 5 has been completed.

5. Hold down both buttons until the HomeLink® indicator light flashes, first slowly then rapidly. When the indicator light flashes rapidly, both buttons may be released. (The rapidly flashing light indicates successful programming of the new frequency signal.)
6. Press and hold the programmed button and check the HomeLink® indicator light. If the indicator light stays on continuously, your garage door should activate and the programming is completed.

If the indicator light flashes rapidly for 2 seconds and then stays on continuously, your garage door opener may be protected by a rolling code feature. In this case you need to perform additional steps.

Refer to “Programming rolling-code-protected garage door openers in the U.S.A.”.

See the instruction manual of your garage opener for confirmation.

7. Reconnect the motor of your garage door opener to the outlet.

8. Test your garage door opener by pressing the programmed HomeLink® button.
