  • It’s powerful: The HomeLink® system allows you to control up to three devices, and it’s tastefully integrated into your Chevrolet interior.
  • It’s safe and secure: Not only will HomeLink® let you know if your compatible garage door has been left open, but the app also allows you to have remote control over other in-home devices, such as the lights and security system, providing you with an extra level of peace-of-mind when you’re on the road.
  • It’s battery-free: HomeLink® is powered by the electrical system in your Chevy you’ll never have to worry about changing batteries.

How Do I Program HomeLink®?

Chevy owners in Decatur and beyond will find that programming HomeLink® is quick and easy. Follow these steps to connect your garage door opener to your car:

  1. The three HomeLink® buttons are most commonly located on the ceiling of the car above the center console. To do a master reset, press and hold down the first and third buttons until the interior lights of your car begin to flash about 20 seconds later. 
  2. Once the ceiling lights begin to flash, press and hold the button you wish to program while simultaneously holding the open/close button on your garage door opener. The lights should go from a slow to rapid flash when the programming is complete.
  3. Go into your garage and press the “learn” button on your garage door opener.
  4. Return to your vehicle and press the programmed button on your car for a minimum of two seconds. You may see the lights on your garage door opener flash when it’s connecting.
