Car2U is a universal garage door opener remote feature available on some Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet,

Ford, GMC, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercury, Saturn, and Hummer vehicles. This system is very similar to the

Home Link system. Programming the Car2U is different if you have the newer learn button on your

garage opener or the older DIP switches. The learn buttons utilize rolling codes(frequencies) while DIP

switches operate on a single  frequency.

 

To program the Car2U to a rolling code system you will need to locate the learn button on the back or

side of your garage door opener motor. This will require the use of a ladder, use caution anytime you

are using a ladder to avoid accidentals falls and injury.

1. Press  the two outer Car2U buttons for about 2 seconds then release.

3. Press and hold the Car2U button you would like to control your garage door. Release the button

as soon as the door starts to move. When the Car2U button is released the indicator light will

blink rapidly until programming is complete.

4. Press and release the Car2U button you just programmed. The garage door should begin to

move, this confirms the programming is complete. If the garage door does not move, repeat the

listed steps. You can find complete programming instructions at the Car2U web site.

 

To program the Car2U to a fixed frequency transmitter you will need to locate the DIP switches on the

back or side of the garage door opener or on the hand held remote. You will need to  locate the position

of each of the 8-12 DIP switches. You will record the DIP switch locations from left to right. The positions

will be up,+ or on; middle,0 or neutral;  or down,- or off.

1. Note DIP switch locations left to right: L= up,+ or on  M=middle,0 or neutral and R=down,- or off.

2. Before imputing the DIP switch sequence press all 3 Car2U buttons at the same time and hold

for about 5 seconds. The indicator light will blink slowly confirming it is in programming mode.

Enter your corresponding DIP switch locations from left to right using the 3 Car2U buttons.

3. After inputting the DIP switch locations press and release all 3 Car2U buttons at the same time.

The indicator light will come on. Press and hold the Car2U button you want to control your

garage door, when the door starts to move release the button.

4. The indicator light will blink rapidly until programming is complete. If the garage door does not

open and close when the Car2U button just programmed is pressed, repeat the listed steps. You

can find complete programming instructions at the Car2U website.

Unlike the Home Link system, the Car2U does not work to turn on lights or other features like lock out

features. The Car2U is also not compatible with garage door or gate openers manufactured outside of

If you have problems programming your Car2U or feel it is too difficult, contact a local garage door

service company for programming. The cost of programming will vary from company to company and by

area, but general labor for garage door company is around $95 – $125.
