Certain garage doors are rolling code protected, and will require a few extra steps to program with the HomeLink system. Here’s how to do it: 1. Securely place a ladder underneath the garage door’s motor. 2. Press and hold the outer two HomeLink buttons on the rear view mirror. After roughly 20 seconds, an indicator light will blink to confirm that the memory has been cleared on the HomeLink system. Release the buttons. 3. Hold the garage door transmitter within three inches of the HomeLink face. 4. Simultaneously press and hold the HomeLink button that you would like to set, and the transmitter button. The indicator light will blink for two seconds, and then turn solid. Release the buttons. 5. Climb the ladder and find the program button on the garage door motor. Press and release the button. 6. Within 30 seconds of pressing the program button, return to the car and press the HomeLink button that you are setting three times. 7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 to program any addition rolling code protected garage doors.
