NOTES

The instructions below apply to the majority of HomeLink compatible systems. However, there are some HomeLink applications, or HomeLink compatible systems, that require slightly different instructions. For more information and instructional videos, visit: www.HomeLink.com.

NOTES

Garage door openers manufactured after 1995 may be equipped with rolling code protection. If this is the case, a stepladder, or other sturdy safe device, may be required to reach the learn or smart button on the garage door opener.

  1. HomeLink buttons.

  2. LED indicator.

  3. Remote control for the device, e.g., garage door.

If required, erase the previous programming from the HomeLink device. See TO ERASE ALL PROGRAMMING.

To program the HomeLink device:

  1. With the ignition switched on, press and release the required HomeLink button (1) on the rear-view mirror. The LED in the rear-view mirror's glass (2) flashes orange.
