2000 Ford f 150 dome lights blink on


2000 is before LEDs were widely used, so let's assume these are incandescent lamps.

Since you said "lights" (not "light") there must be more than one, and they must be both blinking. That rules out lamps and sockets.

Now, your question isn't clear. (Way too many questions on Fixya are insufficiently clear.)

A. Do they blink on and off when you are driving down the road at night?
or
B. Do they blink instead of coming fully on when you open a door? Try both driver and passenger doors and see if there's a difference.

Answer to A:
When you turn the dash lights to maximum brightness, the dome lights come on by design. It's a feature so you can read a map or find a dropped item at night without opening the door. If you turn the dash lights down a little, the dome lights go off. But if you leave that control right on the edge, the lights will blink on and off. Just turn the dash light brightness down a tiny bit.

Answer to B:
If they blink when either door is open, the problem is NOT in the door switch. If there are multiple dome lights, the most likely suspect is a fuse which isn't quite blown. Read your manual to figure out which fuse controls the dome lights and replace it.

If they blink when only one of the doors is open, the problem is with the switch on that door. These switches are typically mounted on the car body, near the door hinges. They have only one wire. When the button is in the OUT position, the switch connects that wire to the car body (called "ground") and the lights illuminate. When the button is IN, there's no current flow. The problem that happens with these switches is that they connect to the car body only by the spring clips that mount them. A little rust or corrosion and they don't conduct any more. If one of the buttons (maybe driver's side) is responsible for the blinking, first try pumping the button in and out a few times with your thumb (more travel than it gets from the door). Then maybe spray some WD-40 around the button. As a last resort, use a screwdriver to pop the switch out of the body, clean the spring clips and body, then pop the switch back in.

2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Opener Homelink Setup


**** >>> This setup I performed with my new 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Homelink and Chamberlain Garage Door Opener <<< ****

Chamberlain:
01. Power off or unplug the garage door opener motor power supply (which is mounted on ceiling of the garage) ;;;

02. keep the garage door opener transmitter in your hand (do not press any button at this time) ;;;

03. In your 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink button (which resides under rear view mirror) press the 1st and 3rd homelink button together for about 30-40 seconds (i.e., until the yellow light blinks fast) and when the yellow light next to the homelink button blinks fast release from pressing the (homelink) buttons ;;;

04. now hold the garage door opener transmitter closer (means within 2-4 inches) to the homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd) whichever you are planning to program to open the garage door ;;;

05. now press the garage door opener transmitter button and chosen homelink button (either 1st or 2nd or 3rd whatever you need) together ;;;

06. the yellow light (next to homelink button) initially may blink slowly but after few seconds (may be 10-20 seconds) will blink fast; once it started blinking fast release from pressing both garage door opener transmitter and homelink button ;;;

07. Now plug or power on the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) ;;;

08. On the main garage door opener motor (which is mounted on garage ceiling) press the "LEARN" button (once you press it may have yellow/orange color light; make sure the light is on) ; then within 30 seconds do the next steps #9, #10, #11 very carefully ;;;

09. go to your car and press the homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 1st iteration ;;;

10. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 2nd iteration ;;;

11. again hold the same homelink button you programmed and hold it for 4 seconds and then release it --> 3rd iteration ** important note; generally three iterations are not necessary; and steps #9, #10, #11 must be performed within 30 seconds ** ;;;

12. during one of the iteration you will hear "CLICK" sound one-time from Garage door motor (which is mounted on ceiling) and if you have light attached with it; it will blink once (** if you hear the CLICK sound and/or light blinks once**) then the particular homelink button is programmed ;;;

13. now press the programmed homelink button; the garage door will open or close (but always it will take 3 or 4 blinks in yellow light or 2-3 seconds before the garage door opens or closes and which is normal) ;;;

** Thats it, your 2010 BMW 528XI Garage Door Opener Homelink setup is complete ** ;;;

You can program rest of the homelink button the same way but following from the steps between #4 and #13 ;;;

Hope this steps will help you to program chamberlain Garage door opener in 2010 BMW 528XI Homelink. ;;;


** possibly the above same steps may work with other BMW 5-series cars homelink too (but I'm not sure) **

The security lights blink when door is opened is there a sensor bad?


You may have a bad switch on that door lock, there is a switch on the key cylinder so that when you turn the key to unlock the door it will shut down factory alarm, to see if this is the problem go to passenger side door and use key to unlock the door and see if the light still blinks.

How do you set the garage door opener for a 2004 toyota 4runner LTD?


You hold the remote close to the three buttons on the vehicle. You choose which button you want the remote to transmit to, and you hold it down. With your other hand, depress the garage door remote opener, and hold it very close to the 3-button assembly. Wait for the red L.E.D. light to blink slowly. If it does not blink slow, continue moving the remote around, until it does blink slow. When it starts to blink slowly, stop moving the remote around. Wait until the light starts blinking rapidly. When the light blinks rapidly, the process is complete.

LIGHTS BLINKING


Check your push in button on door post or door jamb area. Use your finger or thumb & push it in, and lights should go out, as if door closed, let it out & if lights flicker, time for a new switch, or try spraying it good with contact cleaner may help.

Garage door remote


First you have to clear any codes in there.
Hold down the outer 2 buttons until the red light blinks, could take a minute or less.
Then release the buttons, hold your garage door opener close to the button you want to program.
hold down the button on the garage door opener and the programing button until you get a blink from the little red light. That's it
