    HomeLink® Universal Transceiver (option)

     HomeLink® Universal Transceiver

    HomeLink® Universal Transceiver
    HomeLink® is an advanced system that can be programmed to learn the codes of three different remote controlled-devices (e.g., garage door openers, remote lighting, entry door lock). HomeLink® 's sun visor-mounted transceiver, powered by your car's electrical system, may then be used in place of your hand-held remote controls.

    NOTE: For your security, the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver is designed to not function if you lock your car from the outside.

    Programming the transceiver
    1. The ignition switch must be turned to the "accessory" position (II) before programming the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver.

    2. Begin by erasing all 3 factory default channels. Hold down the two outside buttons (buttons 1 and 3 in the illustration) on the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver for about 20 seconds, until HomeLink®'s indicator light begins to flash. Then release the buttons.

    3. Hold your hand-held transmitter (garage door opener, for example) 2 to 5 in. (5 to 12 cm) away from the HomeLink® surface, keeping the indicator light in view. For placement questions, contact HomeLink® toll-free 1-800-355-3515 (Internet: www.HomeLink.com).

    4.Using two hands, push and hold both your hand-held transmitter's button and the transceiver button you wish to program. The indicator light will flash first slowly, then rapidly. Rapid flashing tells you the HomeLink® button has been successfully programmed. Release both buttons.

    5. If you are programming a rolling code-equipped device (e.g., garage door opener or entry door lock), refer to "Programming rolling codes" on the next page to complete the programming process.

    Repeat steps 3 and 4 to program the other two transceiver buttons.

    If, after several attempts, you are unable to successfully train the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver to learn your hand-held transmitter's signal, contact HomeLink® toll-free 1-800-355-3515 (Internet: www.HomeLink.com).

    pg. 191 Audio

    warningWARNING!

  • If you use HomeLink® to open a garage door or gate, be sure no one is near the gate or door while it is in motion.

  • Do not use the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver with any garage door opener that lacks safety "stop" and "reverse" features as required by federal safety standards. (This includes any garage door opener model manufactured before April 1, 1982) A garage door opener that cannot "detect" an object, signaling the door to "stop" and "reverse" does not meet current federal safety standards. Using a garage door opener without these features increases the risk of serious injury or death. For more information on this matter, call toll-free 1-800-355-3515

    (Internet: www.HomeLink.com ).

  • pg. 192 Audio

    NOTE: Canadian residents:
    During programming, your hand-held transmitter may automatically stop transmitting. To successfully train HomeLink®, continue to hold the HomeLink® button. At the same time, repeatedly press and hold your hand-held transmitter's button at two-second intervals until HomeLink® has learned your transmitter's code. The HomeLink® indicator light will flash first slowly, and then rapidly to indicate that the button has been successfully programmed.

    Determining if your garage door uses a rolling code
    Determine, in one of the following ways, if your garage door uses a rolling code system and is manufactured after 1996:

  • Refer to the garage door opener owner's manual for verification.
  • If your hand-held transmitter appears to program the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver but the programmed button does not activate the garage door, your garage door opener may have a rolling code.
  • Press the programmed HomeLink® button. If the garage door opener has the rolling code feature, the HomeLink® indicator light flashes rapidly and then glows steadily after approximately 2 seconds.

    To train a rolling code garage door opener,
    follow these instructions after programming the desired transceiver button according to "Programming the transceiver." The help of a second person may make training easier.
    1. Locate the training button on the garage door opener motor head unit. The location and color of the training button may vary. If you encounter difficulty, refer to the garage door opener owner's manual or call toll-free 1-800-355-3515 (Internet: www.HomeLink.com).
    2. Press the "training" button on the garage door opener motor head unit until the "training" light comes on.
    3. Press and release the programmed HomeLink® button. Press and release the programmed HomeLink® button a second time to complete the training process. Some garage door openers may require you to do this procedure a third time to complete the training.

    The programmed button on your HomeLink® Universal Transceiver should now operate your garage door opener. The original hand-held transmitter can also be used, as desired, to operate the garage door.

    The remaining two HomeLink® buttons can be programmed in the same way. In the event of any problems in programming the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver, call toll-free 1-800-355- 3515 (Internet: www.HomeLink.com).

    Operating the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver
    Once programmed, the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver can be used in place of your handheld transmitters.

    To operate, the key must be turned to the "accessory" position (II) or the engine must be running. Press the programmed HomeLink® button to activate the garage door, driveway gate, security lighting, home security system, etc.

    Your original hand-held transmitters may, of course, be used at any time.

    Erasing programmed buttons
    Individual buttons cannot be erased. To erase all three programmed buttons:
    1. Turn the ignition key to the "accessory" position (II).
    2. Hold down the two outside buttons on the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver for about 20 seconds, until HomeLink®'s indicator light begins to flash.
    3. Release both buttons.
    The HomeLink® buttons can be reprogrammed using the procedures described on the previous page.
    (HomeLink® information continues on the next page).

    pg. 193 Audio

    Reprogramming a single HomeLink® button
    1. Press and hold the desired HomeLink® button. Do not release the button until step 3 has been completed.
    2. When the indicator light begins to flash slowly (after approximately 20 seconds), position your hand-held transmitter 2 to 5 in. (5 to 12 cm) away from the HomeLink® surface.
    3. Press and hold the hand-held transmitter button. The HomeLink® indicator light will flash first slowly, then rapidly. When the indicator light flashes rapidly, release both buttons.

    The previously programmed device has now been erased and the new device can be activated by pressing the HomeLink® button that has just been programmed. This procedure will not affect any other programmed HomeLink® buttons.

    NOTE:

  • Retain the original transmitter(s) for future programming procedures (e.g., if you purchase a new car).
  • For your own security, erase all programmed buttons on the HomeLink® Universal Transceiver when you sell your car.
  • Metallic sun protection films should not be used on any windows in a car equipped with HomeLink® Universal Transceiver. This could interfere with the transceiver's function.
