The most commonly used and trusted vehicle-based wireless control system in the world, HomeLink is accessible in more than 100 nations. Your HomeLink buttons are normally found in the overhead console, center stack, or mirror of your car, but their exact location depends on the make, model, and year of your vehicle. Please consult your owner’s manual if you’re unsure of where your HomeLink is.
Thousands of various garage doors, gates, and other devices throughout the world are compatible with HomeLink. We cannot, however, promise that all regions and all device manufacturers will be compatible.
The most accurate training instructions are always found in your owner’s handbook, which you should utilize as your main resource for training your equipment. The following instructions have been created to work for training most compatible devices if you cannot locate your owner’s manual. Please be aware that these instructions imply a HomeLink location that uses mirrors. Please utilize your vehicle’s other HomeLink location instead of the mirror if it is available.
- Make sure all obstructions are removed before setting up HomeLink, and park your car somewhere other than the garage.
- For more precise programming, we advise purchasing a new battery for your garage door remote.

Training for HomeLink and garage doors:

- Press and hold both the button on your handheld garage door remote and the HomeLink button you want to program while holding your garage door remote 1-3 inches (3-7 cm) away from your HomeLink buttons. When the HomeLink indication light switches from gently flickering to solid or fast flashing, DO NOT RELEASE.

The next step can be taken to overwrite buttons that already have devices registered to them without erasing other programmed buttons.
- Select the HomeLink button, then press and hold it.
- After roughly 20 seconds of continued button holding, the HomeLink indicator light will begin to flash gently. Position the garage door remote between 5 and 30 cm below the HomeLink buttons, press, and hold the garage door remote until the HomeLink indicator light changes from gently flashing to solid or fast flashing. This modification shows that the frequency signal has been absorbed.
- Hold down the HomeLink button that has been programmed while you look at the indicator light.
