How do I program the HomeLink transceiver?

A: The HomeLink transceiver can be programmed ...

The HomeLink transceiver can be programmed to open your garage, entry gate, or almost any other system with a remote. To program the system, follow these steps: 1. 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. At this point, you can release the buttons. 2. Hold the transmitter that you will be programming within three inches of the HomeLink face. 3. Simultaneously press and hold the HomeLink button that you would like to set, and the button on the transmitter. 4. Keep the two buttons held down for up to 90 seconds. The indicator light will begin to flash, but keep holding until the flash turns from slow to fast. When the light is blinking rapidly, you can release the buttons. 5. Press and hold the programmed HomeLink button until the device begins to work. The system is now programmed. 6. Repeat steps 2 through 6 to program any more devices.
