Program Your Garage Door Opener To Your Car

Programming a garage door opener to your car is a useful and can make your life easier and enable you to enter and exit your garage without having to leave the car. It is an especially helpful feature if you have a lot of luggage or groceries. Before beginning it is important to ensure that your garage door opener antenna is hanging down and unobstructed so that it has an optimal reception for the programming process.

Make sure prior codes are erased

To begin, you will want to ensure that any old codes are erased from your car’s Home Link. To do this, hold down buttons 1 and 3 for around 15-20 seconds until the adjacent LED light blinks quickly. This indicates that your car’s Home Link memory has been cleared. To verify press any of the Home Link’s buttons (not at the same time), and the LED light should blink slowly to indicate that no programming is present for that button.

Next, you will need two people for this part of the process one sitting in the car with their garage door remote and one behind the garage door opener. The person in the car needs to press and hold both buttons on the car Home Link/rearview mirror while pressing and holding their open/close button on their garage door remote simultaneously. After five seconds, they should release both buttons after seeing a quick flash from their Home Link/rearview mirror LED light indicating successful programming has taken place.

The person at the opener should see an LED light blinking on the unit (in some models). They must press and hold its SMART/LEARN button until LED light stays solid during this time. At this point they then instruct the person in the car to push and release the Home Links button for 3 seconds each time (it should work after 2 or 4 times). After completing these steps correctly, your new programmed garage door should now be able to be opened via your car!
