Chevrolet is known for their advanced technology features. Features like Homelink, a wireless control system that is built into your new Chevy vehicle which allows you to connect to home security systems, garage door openers, and other devices right from your vehicle. Programming Homelink can seem challenging at first, but we’re here to help our Normal drivers learn how to set up Homelink and why you should want it in the first place.

The Benefits of Homelink

Drivers in Decatur who have a popular Homelink equipped model like the Chevrolet Malibu or Traverse will enjoy benefits such as:

  • Convenience: With just the press of a few buttons your Homelink will be paired with the systems of your home.
  • Compatibility: Homelink is compatible with just about all garage door openers and gate systems, as well as a wide range of other radio-frequency (RF) controlled devices.
  • Control Up to 3 Devices: The Homelink system, which is tastefully integrated into your vehicle, will control up to three devices.
  • Safety & Security: Homelink apps also allow you to have remote control over lights and security systems as well as informing you if your garage door is opened or closed. These assurances provide peace of mind when you are away.
  • Battery-free: You’ll never have to worry about changing batteries because Homelink is powered by your Chevy vehicle.

How Do I Program Homelink?

Programming Homelink is quick and easy, just follow these steps to connect your garage door opener to your car:

  1. The Homelink unit features 3 buttons and is most commonly located on the ceiling of the car above the center console. The very first time you program your Homelink system, press and hold down the first and third buttons until the interior lights of your car begin to flash (about 20 seconds). This is also a master reset.
  2. Press and hold the button you wish to program while simultaneously holding the open/close button on your garage door opener when the ceiling lights begin to flash. The lights should go from a slow to rapid flash, indicating that the programming is complete.
  3. Press the “learn” button on your garage door opener inside your garage.
  4. Return to your Chevy and hold the programmed button on your car for a minimum of two seconds. You may see the lights on your garage door opener flash, indicating that it is connecting.
