How to Program HomeLink®

  1. The HomeLink® unit features 3 buttons, and you will typically find it on the ceiling of your Chevy above the center console. Press and hold down the first and third buttons until the interior lights of your car begin to flash. This step generally takes about 20 seconds. **Note: Pressing the first and third buttons is the master reset. You do not need to press these buttons when subsequently connecting additional devices.

  3. Go into your garage and press the “learn” button on your garage door opener.
  4. Go back to your vehicle to press the programmed button on your car for a minimum of two seconds. When it starts to connect, it is possible that the lights on your garage door opener will flash.
