  1. The HomeLink® unit features three buttons, typically located on the ceiling of the car above the center console. Press and hold down the first and third buttons until the interior lights flash. Note that pressing the first and third buttons is the master reset, you don’t need to do this when subsequently adding other devices.
  2. Once the ceiling lights flash, press and hold the button you wish to program while simultaneously holding the open/close button on your garage door opener. The lights will go from a slow to rapid flash, indicating that the programming was successful.
  3. Enter your garage and press the “learn” button on your garage door opener.
