1. Position vehicle within 10 feet of garage door- engine off and battery on.
2. Press/hold 2 outside buttons of Homelink
transceiver until red indicator starts flashing rapidly, then release
button. This should take about 20 seconds. This erases any previously
3. Press/hold remote control and press/hold button of Homelink transceiver simultaneously. Slowly move remote control from 5" away to 1" away from Homelink
transceiver. Release both buttons after red indicator starts blinking
rapidly. This should take about 5 seconds. I discovered that the Homelink in my TL is a bit faulty because it took much longer to accomplish this than when programming the Homelink in my MDX. My TL's Homelink
may "unlearn" it's code in the future and the needed proximity of the
TL to the garage door may be much closer than desired until I get the Homelink fixed.
4. Press training button on garage door opener unit until the indicator lights illuminates- this should be immediate.
5. Within 30 seconds press/hold the Homelink
button for 2-3 seconds until the red indicator starts flashing rapidly.
Repeat a second time. It should now be programmed. Check it by pressing
the programmed button on the Homelink receiver.
6. When programming more than 1 garage door opener unit, disconnect
power from unit before programming more units. By not doing this the
programmed unit could conflict with the unprogrammed units commands.
1. The Battery in the garage door remote may be too weak to program Homelink.
However, the battery may be strong enough to operate the garage door.
One of my remote controls had a weak battery- my system was installed
today, fresh out of the box. I had to use the second remote control for
the programming of Homelink on my 2 vehicles.
2. Antenna on the garage door opener unit must be hanging down, fully extended.
