Before programming HomeLink® to a garage door opener, make sure that people and objects are out of the way of the device to prevent potential harm or damage. Your motorized garage door will open and close while you are programming. Do not program your remote if people or pets are in the path of the door. A moving garage door can cause serious injury or death to people and pets or damage to objects.
Vehicle exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a dangerous gas. Do not run the vehicle's engine while programming. Exhaust gas can cause serious injury or death. When programming a garage door opener, it is advised to park outside of the garage.
Do not use your in-car transmitter with any garage door opener that lacks safety stop and reverse features as required by U.S. federal safety standards (this includes any garage door opener model manufactured before April 1, 1982). A garage door that cannot detect an object signaling the door to stop and reverse - does not meet current U.S. federal safety standards.
If programming a garage door opener it is advised to unplug the device during programming and also if performing the "cycling" process to prevent possible motor burn-up.
NOTE: Some vehicles may require the ignition to be turned on or to the second (or “accessory” or ACC) position for training and/or operation of cars remote. It is also recommended that a new battery be replaced in the hand held transmitter of the device being trained to your vehicles transmitter for quicker training and accurate transmission of the radio frequency.
Your vehicles remote transmitter should now activate your device.
Retain the original hand-held transmitter of the RF device you are programming for use in other vehicles, as well as for future programming. It is also suggested that upon the sale of the vehicle, the programmed in vehicle remote buttons should be erased for security purposes. To erase the programmed buttons, perform the procedure shown in step number 1.
**To train additional buttons, begin with step two.
