Homelink System

The Homelink system is preinstalled in most newer model vehicles or may only be available as part of an upgraded equipment package. The Homelink system allows you to control items such as garage door openers, gate openers, lights, RF frequency locks and other RF frequency small appliances. The Homelink works on RF frequency between 288-433.


To program Homelink the remote for the device must be present and will have to be placed within 2-3 inches of the Homelink controls in the vehicle for programming purposes.


The beauty of the Homelink system is that the controls are always in the same location and are attached to the vehicle, so a remote would not be needed in Homelink equipped vehicles. The Homelink system is compatible with multiple devices allowing you to program different button on your Homelink for different purposes,

for example one button could be programmed to open a gate at your home or community while another button can be programmed to open your garage door and a third to unlock your house, all done safely from the inside of your Homelink equipped vehicle. This again eliminates the need for one or more remotes in your Homelink equipped vehicle.

You may purchase a Homelink Compatibility Bridge Kit that is designed to allow compatibility between a newer Chamberlain, Sears Craftsman, or LiftMaster garage door opener fitted with a yellow antenna wire and the HomeLink system in your vehicle. These openers were made in 2011 or later.

To program your Homelink System you will need to look up the programming instructions for particular vehicle as well as for your particular brand and model number openers. These instructions can be found at the Homelink website.

*Note: Before you begin programming your Homelink System, make sure you have fresh strong batteries in your remote. Weak batteries may not put out enough signal strength to allow the Homelink System to learn the remote frequency code. You may also need to locate and press the learn button on the back of your garage door opener. This requires the use of a step ladder, always use caution while using a ladder to prevent accidental falls. Be sure to read and follow the programming instructions found on the Homelink Website for both your vehicle and your brand and model number opener or other device to be programmed.
