Programming Your New Homelink Garage Door Opener

  1. Ensure that your remote transmitter has a new battery.
  2. Park your car facing the garage, and then turn on the ignition.
  3. Locate the Homelink buttons in your Chevy. Usually, you’ll find them in one of the following spots: your rearview
    mirror, your visor, or your overhead console.
  4. Position your remote transmitter about one to three inches away from the Homelink control buttons in your Chevy.
    Next, press the desired Homelink control button and the corresponding remote control button down at the same time.
  5. Hold the buttons down until the Homelink indicator light flashes slowly and then either changes to a solid light
    or flashes quickly.
  6. If you see either a solid or flashing light as indicated in step 5, then that particular frequency signal has been
  7. If the Homelink indicator light is solid, new programming is finished. If the Homelink indicator light
    flashes continuously, however, follow the next group of steps below.
  8. Push the Homelink controller button twice to activate. If this does not work, follow the next group of steps.

If your Homelink indicator light is flashing rapidly, that means your vehicle is equipped with a rolling code system. That, in turn, means you’ll need to follow these steps to complete the programming process for your garage door opener:

  1. Exit your Chevy and enter your garage, locating the garage door opener motor.
  2. Find the “Learn” or “Smart” button on your garage door opener monitor. Usually, you’ll find this near the hanging
    antenna wire on the rear side of the motor.
  3. Once you’ve located it, press the “Learn” button once. After you press it, you’ll have 30 seconds to complete step
  4. Return to your Chevy, and push the programmed HomeLink control button three times in a row to finish activating.
  5. Repeat the previous four steps for the remaining two Homelink buttons in your Chevy, and your garage door should
    now be completely activated.
  6. Once it’s programmed, the Homelink wireless control system and the original remote control transmitter can both be
    used to operate your garage door. With that in mind, if you prefer to leave the original transmitter in another car,
    you certainly can.
