Programming HomeLink®

Note

In certain vehicles the ignition must be switched on or in "accessory position" before HomeLink® can be programmed or used. Preferably fit new batteries in the remote control that will be replaced by HomeLink® for faster programming and improved transmission of the radio signal. The HomeLink® buttons should be reset before programming, see the heading "Resetting the HomeLink® buttons". When the reset is complete, HomeLink® is set in "learn mode" and ready for programming.

Press theSee section "HomeLink®*" for the location of buttons and indicator lamp. button on HomeLink® you want to program. The indicator lampSee section "HomeLink®*" for the location of buttons and indicator lamp. on HomeLink® should flash yellow once per second. It is not necessary to hold the button depressed.

Aim the remote control towards the HomeLink® button to be programmed and hold it 2-8 cm from the button. Do not obstruct the indicator lamp on HomeLink®.

Note: Some remote controls can program HomeLink® better at a distance of 15-20 cm. Bear this in mind if you encounter problems during programming.

Press and hold the button on the original remote control to be programmed on HomeLink® and keep an eye on the indicator lamp. Do not release the button until the indicator lamp has switched from flashing yellow once per second to either flashing green 10 times per second or illuminating in a constant green glow. The button on the remote control can be released once the indicator lamp flashes or illuminates in green.

Note: For some receivers, programming step 3 may need to be replaced with the instructions in step 4.

Press and release the button on the original remote control every other second until the indicator lamp has changed from flashing yellow once per second to either flashing green 10 times per second or illuminating in a constant green glow.

Depress the programmed HomeLink® button and check the indicator lamp.

Constant green glow: If the indicator lamp illuminates in a constant green glow, programming is complete. The garage door, gate or similar should now be activated when the programmed button is depressed.

Flashes green 10 times per second: Depress the button being programmed, hold it depressed for 2 seconds and then release it. Repeat the sequence of pressing/holding/releasing a second time and, depending on the receiver model, even a third time. Programming should now be complete and the garage door, gate or similar should now be activated when the programmed button is depressed.

If the receiver is still not activated: Continue with programming steps 6-8 to complete programming.

Operation

When HomeLink® is fully programmed it can be used in place of the separate original remote controls.

Depress the programmed button. The garage door, gate, alarm system or similar is activated (may take a few seconds). The indicator lamp illuminates or flashes when the button has been depressed. Naturally the original remote controls can still be used in parallel with HomeLink® if required.

Note

If the ignition is switched off, HomeLink® will work for 30 minutes after the driver's door has been opened.

Resetting the HomeLink® buttons

It is only possible to reset all of the HomeLink® buttons at the same time, not each button individually. However, individual buttons can be reprogrammed; see the section "Programming individual buttons" below.

Depress buttons 1 and 3 on HomeLink® and hold them depressed until the indicator lamp begins flashing green (about 10 seconds).

Release the buttons.

HomeLink® is now set to "learn mode" and is ready to be reprogrammed; see the section "Programming HomeLink®" above.

Programming individual buttons

To reprogram an individual HomeLink® button, proceed as follows:

Depress the required button and do not release.

After approx. 20 seconds when the indicator lamp on HomeLink® starts to flash yellow, start with step 1 from the section "Programming HomeLink®" above.

Note: If the button to be reprogrammed is not programmed with a new unit, it will resume the previously saved programming.
