We get numerous calls when it comes to programming Home Link to cars and openers. This can be a

confusing task if you do not utilize the information available at www.homelink.com/program. The

steps vary depending on the year, make and model of your car as well as what brand opener and

model number opener you are programming. 

You must understand the procedures before you start

and this can be a daunting task, but if you follow the directions from Home Link and the directions

for your garage door opener, it can usually be done fairly quickly. We will describe the steps to

program a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe to a Liftmaster opener.

1. For first time training, or to clear out all stored programs, press and hold the two outer

Home Link buttons for about 20 seconds until the Home Link light begins to blink.( this step

is not necessary when programming additional buttons, just fro first time set up or to clear

out all stored programs.

2. Hold the hand held remote, for the opener you are programming, about 3 inches away from

the Home Link surface located on the visor, mirror, console or other location. Make sure you

can see the Home Link indicator light.

3. While holding the hand held remote about 3 inches from the Home Link surface, using both

hands press and hold the desired Home Link button and the button programmed on the

hand held remote at the same time. Hold both buttons until the Home Link indicator light

flashes slowly and then rapidly. When the light starts flashing rapidly you can release both

buttons. The rapid flashing indicator light indicates that the Home Link system has learned

the opener remote.

4.  Press and hold the Home Link button you just programmed while watching the indicator

light.

* If the indicator light is a solid , the learning is complete and your garage door should

open and close when the Home Link button is pressed and released.

* If he indicator light blinks rapidly for 2 seconds and then turns to a solid light then you must

move on to step number 5.

5. Using a ladder, locate the learn button on the back or side of the opener motor. The learn

button could be one of several colors. Press and release the learn button. If you have

problems locating the learn button refer to your garage door opener owner’s manual.  Use

caution any time you are using a ladder to avoid accidental falls.

6. Press and release the learn button on the garage door opener motor. You will have 30

seconds to complete step number 7.

7. Return to the vehicle and press and hold the programmed Home Link button for 2 seconds

and release the button. You may have to repeat the press and hold for 2 seconds up to 3

times to complete the programming process.

Keep the hand held remote for use in other vehicles, or for future programming of other Home

Link systems.

These 5-7 steps will program your vehicles Home Link to your garage door opener. In some

situations you will need to only complete steps 1-5 to complete the programming process while

on others you will need to complete steps 1-7. You will have to pay attention to the Home Link

indicator light while programming to know if only 5 steps are required or if all 7 steps will be

required.

Additional programming instructions are available at www.homelink.com/programming.

You will need to Provide the year, make and model of your vehicle as well as the manufacturer and

model number of your opener to access the instructions. The steps listed above should work for any

vehicle equipped with Home Link and for any brand and model of opener as long as it is

compatible with Home Link. If you have problems with programming, or decide it is not a task

you want to try yourself, a local garage door service company can program your Home Link for

you. The cost of programming will vary from company to company and it may be different in

different areas, but general labor for garage door service is around $95 – $125.
