Before You Begin Programming HomeLink. Programming A Rolling Code

Before You Begin Programming HomeLink

Be sure that your vehicle is parked outside of the garage before you begin programming.

For more efficient programming and accurate transmission of the radio-frequency signal, it is recommended that a new battery be placed in the hand-held transmitter of the device that is being programmed to the HomeLink system.

To erase the channels, place the ignition in the ON/RUN position and push and hold the two outside HomeLink buttons (I and III) for up 20 seconds or until the red indicator flashes.


  •  Erasing all channels should only be performed when programming HomeLink for the first time. Do not erase channels when programming additional buttons.
  •  If you have any problems, or require assistance, please call toll-free 1-800-355-3515 or, on the Internet at for information or assistance.

Programming A Rolling Code

For programming garage door openers that were manufactured after 1995: These garage door openers can be identified by the "LEARN" or "TRAIN" button located where the hanging antenna is attached to the garage door opener. It is NOT the button that is normally used to open and close the door. The name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer.

Training The Garage Door Opener Training The Garage Door Opener

1 - Door Opener
2 - Training Button

  1. Place the ignition in the ON/RUN position.
  2. Place the hand-held transmitter 1 to 3 inches (3 to 8 cm) away from the HomeLink button you wish to program while keeping the HomeLink indicator light in view.
  3.  Push and hold the HomeLink button you want to program while you push and hold the hand-held transmitter button.
  4.  Continue to hold both buttons and observe the indicator light. The HomeLink indicator will flash slowly and then rapidly after HomeLink has received the frequency signal from the hand-held transmitter. Release both buttons after the indicator light changes from slow to rapid.
  5.  At the garage door opener motor (in the garage), locate the "LEARN" or "TRAINING" button. This can usually be found where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the garage door opener/device motor.Firmly push and release the "LEARN" or "TRAINING" button. On some garage door openers/devices there may be a light that blinks when the garage door opener/device is in the LEARN/TRAIN mode.NOTE: You have 30 seconds in which to initiate the next step after the LEARN button has been pushed.
  6.  Return to the vehicle and push the programmed HomeLink button twice (holding the button for two seconds each time). If the garage door opener/device activates, programming is complete.

NOTE: If the garage door opener/device does not activate, push the button a third time (for two seconds) to complete the training.

To program the remaining two HomeLink buttons, repeat each step for each remaining button. DO NOT erase the channels.

  2.  Push and hold the desired HomeLink button until the indicator light begins to flash after 20 seconds. Do not release the button.
  3.  Without releasing the button, proceed with "Programming A Rolling Code" step 2 and follow all remaining steps.
