    To begin, press and hold the two outer
    HomeLinkT buttons (to clear the memory)
    until the indicator lights1 blinks slowly (after
    20 seconds). Release both buttons

    2. Position the end of the hand-held transmitter
    1 - 3 inches (26 - 76 mm) away from the
    HomeLinkT surface

    3. Using both hands, simultaneously press and
    hold both the HomeLinkT button you want to
    program and the hand-held transmitter button.
    DO NOT release the buttons until step 4 has
    been completed

    4. Hold down both buttons until the indicator
    light on the HomeLinkT flashes, changing
    from a “slow blink” to a “rapidly flashing
    blink”. This could take up to 90 seconds.
    When the indicator light flashes rapidly, both
    buttons may be released. The rapidly flashing
    light indicates successful programming.
    To activate the garage door or other programmed
    device, press and hold the programmed
    HomeLinkT button — releasing
    when the device begins to activate.

    5. If the indicator light on the HomeLinkT blinks
    rapidly for 2 seconds and then turns solid,
    HomeLinkT has picked up a “rolling code”
    garage door opener signal. You will need to
    proceed with the next steps to train the
    HomeLinkT to complete the programming
    which may require a ladder and another person
    for convenience.

    6. Press and release the “smart” or “learn” program
    button located on the garage door
    opener’s motor to activate the “training
    mode”. This button is usually located near
    the antenna wire that hangs down from the
    motor. If the wire originates from under a
    light lens, you will need to remove the lens to
    access the program button.

    Once you have pressed and released the
    program button on the garage door opener
    ’s motor and the “training light” is lit, you
    have 30 seconds in which to perform step 7.
    Use the help of a second person for convenience
    to assist when performing this step.
    7. Within 30 seconds of pressing and releasing
    the garage door opener program button,
    quickly and firmly press and release the
    HomeLinkT button you’ve just programmed.
    Press and release the HomeLinkT button up
    to 3 times to complete the training.
    8. Your HomeLinkT button should now be programmed.
    (To program the remaining
    HomeLinkT buttons for additional door or
    gate openers, follow steps 2-8 only.)

    Do not repeat step 1 unless you want to
    “clear” all previously programmed
    HomeLinkT buttons.
    If you have any questions or are having difficulty
    programming your HomeLinkT buttons, please
    refer to the HomeLinkT web site at: or call 1-800-NISSAN-1 (1-

    all you had to do is tell me you lost your book.
    i didnt want to type all this if all you had to do is look in the glove box.
    next time you use fixya please give us more information
    it realy helps us out when its a complicated fix

    the trust from our customers comes from our fixya score
    and i just wanted you to know you gave me my first INAPPROPRIATE

Sinc garage door opener with a 2009 Hyundai Sonata

Take your remote and hold it up towards your rear view mirror or your visor whitchever is the one with 3 buttons of your homelink , also make shure that your opener has a program button which come in different colors depending on the year of the machine, if you have a program button on your powerhead of your garage door opener then you can mostlikely program your car to it! The button on garage door opener comes in different colors such as yellow,green ,orange, black, grey and black ! make shure your opener has one of these buttons! Now take your remote and point it within a few inches of your visor/rearview mirror and hold the button down that oppens that press the first button on your car mirror/visor until the door opens up , it take sometimes a few trys but remember to leave your car running while doing this and have it outside the front of your garage door while doing this!

Just got a new garage door opener and I cant find my Hyundai owner's manuel. How do I reset the garage door opener on the mirror to open my garage door/

There was a minor change for mine to work.. see below..

- you must park your Prius close to the gate opener, leaving it running (obviously not in the way of the gate closing)
- Hold the button the the mirror and then push your garage door remote button and hold until the light on the mirror starts to flasyh fast. THIS programs the button on the mirror, but not the garage opener - yet (this was key for me)
- locate the "learning button" on the opener itself
- press the "learning button" on your gate opener and then get back into the Prius within 30 seconds (more time than it sounds) and press the SAME Homelink button you just programmed above. I don't recall how long I held the pre-programmed button, but the light will flash as I recall.
- Then, when working the garage door, you may need to hold the mirror button for a good second for it to work - but I had tried for months to get mine to work, and finally after reading many posts, the above sequence worked on my 2008 Prius with my Lift Master, Security + rolling codes garage opener.

Just - program the button on the mirror with your remote FIRST.. the garage opener will not work.. then use the Learn button on the garage opener and the SAME BUTTON you just programmed.. and it worked great for me. Not programming the mirror button first will not work. Using only the Learn button will not work. You must program the mirror first with the remote, then use the learn button and the SAME button on the mirror. Hope this helps.

Setting garage door opener

Most openers are programmed the same. You normally program the house garage opener to accept the new remote. Your garage opener will have a button to press to add in a new remote. Normally you press this and then press the remote in the car and hold until your lights on your opener flash or the garage door closes. (check your manual on your garage door opener)
