• Make sure that all passengers have their hands, etc. inside the vehicle
while it is in motion and before closing
the windows. Use the window lock
switch to prevent unexpected use of
the power windows.
• Do not leave children unattended in- side the vehicle. They could unknow-
ingly activate switches or controls and
become trapped in the window. Unat-
tended children could become in-
volved in serious accidents.
• Do not leave children or adults who would normally require the assistance
of others alone in your vehicle. Pets
should also not be left alone. They
could accidentally injure themselves or
others through inadvertent operation
of the vehicle. Also, on hot, sunny days,
temperatures in a closed vehicle could
quickly become high enough to cause
severe or possibly fatal injuries to
people or animals. The power windows operate when the power
switch is in the ON position, or for about 45
seconds after the power switch is placed in the
OFF position. If the driver’s or front passenger’s
door is opened during this period of about 45
seconds, power to the windows is canceled.

a convenient way to consolidate the functions of
up to three individual hand-held transmitters into
one built-in device.
HomeLink® Universal Transceiver:
• Will operate most Radio Frequency (RF) de-
vices such as garage doors, gates, home and
office lighting, entry door locks and security
• Is powered by the vehicle’s 12-volt battery. No separate batteries are required. If the vehicle’s
12-volt battery is discharged or is discon-
nected, HomeLink® will retain all programming.
Once the HomeLink® Universal Trans-
ceiver is programmed, retain the original
transmitter for future programming proce-
dures (for example, new vehicle pur-
chases) . Upon sale of the vehicle, the pro-
grammed HomeLink® Universal
Transceiver buttons should be erased for
security purposes. For additional informa-
tion, refer to “Programming HomeLink®” in

• Do not use the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver with any garage door
opener that lacks safety stop and re-
verse features as required by federal
safety standards. (These standards be-
came effective for opener models
manufactured after April 1, 1982.) A
garage door opener that cannot detect
an object in the path of a closing ga-
rage door and then automatically stop
and reverse, does not meet current
federal safety standards. Using a ga-
rage door opener without these fea-
tures increases the risk of serious in-
jury or death.
• During the programming procedure, your garage door or security gate will
open or close (if the transmitter is
within range) . Make sure that people
or objects are clear of the garage door,
gate, etc. that you are programming.
• Place the power switch in the ACC or ON position while programming the
HomeLink® Universal Transceiver.
If you have any questions or are having difficulty
programming your HomeLink® buttons, refer to
the HomeLink® web site at: www.homelink.com
or call 1-800-355-3515.
Place the power switch in the ACC position
when programming HomeLink®. It is also
recommended that a new battery be placed
in the hand-held transmitter of the device
being programmed to HomeLink® for
quicker programming and accurate trans-
mission of the radio-frequency.
1. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter
1–3 inches (2–8 cm) away from the
HomeLink® surface, keeping the HomeLink®

hold the desired HomeLink® button and
handheld transmitter button. DO NOT release

3. Press and hold the programmed HomeLink®button and observe the indicator light.
• If the indicator light
continuous, programming is complete
and your device should activate when the
HomeLink® button is pressed and released.
• If the indicator light
1blinks rapidly for
two seconds and then turns to a solid/
continuous light, continue with Steps
4-6 for a rolling code device. A second per-
son may make the following steps easier.
Please use a ladder or other device. Do not
stand on your vehicle to perform the next

opener motor in the garage, locate the “learn”
or “smart” button (the name and color of the
button may vary by manufacturer but it is
usually located near where the hanging an-
tenna wire is attached to the unit) . If there is
difficulty locating the button, reference the
garage door opener’s manual.
5. Press and release the “learn” or “smart” button.
6. Return to the vehicle and firmly press and hold the trained HomeLink® button for two sec-
onds and release. Repeat the “press/hold/
release” sequence up to three times to com-
plete the training process. HomeLink®
should now activate your rolling code

PROGRAMMING HOMELINK® FOR
CANADIAN CUSTOMERS AND
Canadian radio-frequency laws require transmit-
ter signals to “time-out” (or quit) after several
seconds of transmission – which may not be long
enough for HomeLink® to pick up the signal
during training. Similar to this Canadian law,
some U.S. gate operators are designed to “tim-
eout” in the same manner.
If you live in Canada or you are having difficulties
training a gate operator or garage door opener by
using the “Training” procedures, replace “Pro-
gramming HomeLink®” Step 2with the follow-
