The HomeLink® system in your car is a handy convenience tool, but it’s not completely foolproof. If you’re experiencing problems programming the buttons, try these steps:

  • Turn the remote around (make sure the batteries are facing away from HomeLink).

  • Move the remote closer to HomeLink (no less than three inches away).
