In certain vehicles the ignition must be switched on or in "accessory position" before HomeLink® can be programmed or used. If possible, fit new batteries in the remote control that shall be replaced by HomeLink® for faster programming and improved transmission of the radio signal. The HomeLink® buttons should be reset before programming.
While programming HomeLink®, the garage door or gate being programmed may activate. For this reason, make sure that nobody is in the vicinity of the door or gate while programming is in progress. The car should be outside the garage while a garage door opener is being programmed.
Aim the remote control towards the HomeLink® button to be programmed and hold it approx. 2-8 cm (approx. 1-3 inches) from the button. Do not obstruct the indicator lamp on HomeLink®.
Note: The ability of some remote controls to program HomeLink® is improved at a distance of approx. 15-20 cm (approx. 6-12 inches). Bear this in mind if problems occur with the programming.
If the indicator lamp illuminates with a constant glow: Indication that the programming has finished. Press the programmed button twice to activate.
If the indicator lamp flashes quickly: The device to be programmed to HomeLink® may have a security function that requires extra steps. Test by pressing the programmed button twice to see whether the programming is working. Otherwise, continue with the following steps.
In the event of programming problems, contact HomeLink® at www.HomeLink.com, or call 00 8000 466 354 65 (or the toll number +49 6838 907 277)3.
Reprogramming individual buttons
Once the indicator lamp on HomeLink® starts to flash slowly, programming can continue as normal.
Note: If the button to be reprogrammed is not programmed with a new unit, it will resume the previously saved programming.
Resetting the HomeLink® buttons
It is only possible to reset all of the HomeLink® buttons at the same time, not each button individually. Individual buttons can only be reprogrammed.
