Assuming your referring to the homelink system in your sunglasses holder:
http://www.homelink.jci.com is your customer assistance website.
Before you begin - If you just took
delivery of your vehicle and have
not trained any of the buttons in the
HomeLink transmitter before, you
should erase any previously learned
codes before training the first
button. To do this, press and hold
the two outside buttons on the
HomeLink transmitter until the red
light flashes. Release the buttons,
then proceed to Step 1.
If you are training the second or
third buttons, go directly to Step 1.
1. Unplug the garage door opener
motor from the house current.
2. Hold the end of the garage door
opener remote control 1 to 3
inches from the HomeLink
transmitter. Make sure you are
not blocking your view of the
red light in the transmitter.
3. Select the transmitter button
you want to train.
4. Press the button on the remote
control and the button on the
transmitter at the same time.
Hold down both buttons.
Canadian Owners: The remote
control you are training from
may stop transmitting after two
seconds. This is not long
enough for the HomeLink
transmitter to learn the code.
Release and press the button on
the remote control every two
seconds until the transmitter has
learned the code.
5. The red light in the transmitter
should begin flashing. It will
flash slowly at first, then

The transmitter should have
learned the code from the

motor, then test the transmitter
button by pushing it. It should
operate the garage door.
If the button does not work,
repeat this procedure to train it
again. If it still does not work,
you may have a variable orrolling code garage door
opener. Test this by pressing
and holding the HomeLink
transmitter button you just
trained. If the red light blinks
for two seconds, then stays on,
you have a rolling code garage
door opener. You may be able
to verify this with the

8. Repeat these steps to train the
other two transmitter buttons to
operate any other remotelycontrolled
devices around your
home (lighting, automatic gate,
security system, etc.).
Training With a Rolling Code
For security purposes, newer
garage door opening systems use a
"rolling" or variable code.
Information from the remote
control and the garage door opener
are needed before the HomeLink
transmitter can operate the garage
door opener. The "Training the
Transmitter" procedure trains the
HomeLink transmitter to the proper
garage door opener code. The
following procedure synchronizes
the HomeLink transmitter to the
garage door opener so they send
and receive the correct codes.
It may be helpful to have someone
assist you with this procedure.
1. Make sure you have properly
completed the "Training the

to three times.)
