immediately after the transmitter button Indicator lamp 1 flashes yellow immediately after the transmitter button has been stored for the first time. If the transmitter button has already been programmed, indicator lamp 1 does not flash yellow until 10 seconds have elapsed.

Release the transmitter button.
Point transmitter button 6 of garage door remote control 5 towards the transmitter buttons on the rear-view mirror at a distance of 2 to 8 inches (5 to 20 cm).

door remote control 5 and the integrated The distance required between garage door remote control 5 and the integrated garage door opener depends on the system of the garage door drive. You might require several attempts. You should test every position for at least 25 seconds before trying another position.

Press and hold transmitter button 6 on garage door remote control 5 until indicator lamp 1 lights up green.

Programming is complete if indicator lamp : lights up or flashes green.

Release transmitter button 2, 3 or 4 on the integrated garage door opener and the transmitter button on garage door remote control 6.

If indicator lamp 1 lights up red:

Repeat the programming procedure for the transmitter button. When doing so, vary the distance between the garage door remote control and the rear-view mirror.

successful programming, the garage door If the indicator lamp flashes green after successful programming, the garage door system is operating on a rolling code. After programming, you must synchronize the garage door opener integrated in the rearview mirror with the receiver of the garage door system.

Synchronizing the rolling code

Your vehicle must be within range of the garage or gate opener drive. Make sure that neither your vehicle nor any persons/objects are present within the sweep of the door or gate.

Observe the safety notes when performing the rolling code synchronization.

Turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock.
Press the programming button of the door or gate drive (see the door or gate drive operating instructions, e.g. under "Programming of additional remote controls").

initiate the next step. You now normally have 30 seconds to initiate the next step.

Press the previously programmed transmitter button of the HomeLink® integrated garage door opener repeatedly in succession until the door opens.

The rolling code synchronization is then complete.

Notes on programming the remote control

Canadian radio frequency laws require a "break" (or interruption) of the transmission signals after broadcasting for a few seconds.

These signals may not therefore last long enough for the integrated garage door opener to recognize the signal during programming.

Comparable with Canadian law, some U.S.

garage door openers also have a built-in "interruption".

If you live in Canada or have difficulties programming the garage door opener (regardless of where you live) when using the programming steps (see above), proceed as follows:

Press and hold one of transmitter buttons 2 to 4 of the integrated garage door opener.

Indicator lamp 1 starts to flash yellow after a short period.

Release the transmitter button.
Press transmitter button 6 of the garage door remote control and hold for two seconds, then release for two seconds, then press again and hold for two seconds.

Repeat this sequence on transmitter button 6 of the garage door remote control until indicator lamp 1 is green.

Repeat the process if indicator lamp 1 turns red.

Continue with the other programming steps (see above).

Problems when programming

If you are experiencing problems programming the integrated garage door opener on the rear-view mirror, take note of the following instructions:

check the transmission frequency of garage door remote control 5 (usually found on the reverse side of the remote control).

The integrated garage door opener is compatible with devices that can be operated with units in a frequency range of 280 to 390 MHz.

change the batteries in garage door remote control 5. This increases the probability that garage door remote control 5 will send a strong and precise signal to the integrated garage door opener on the rearview mirror.

when programming, hold garage door remote control 5 at different distances and angles from the transmitter button that you are programming. Try different angles at a distance between 2 and 12 inches (5 to 30 cm) or the same angle at varying distances.

if another remote control for the same garage door drive is available, repeat the same programming steps with this remote control. Before you perform the steps of the operation, make sure that there are new batteries in the garage door remote control.

note that some remote controls only transmit for a limited amount of time (the indicator lamp on the remote control goes out). Press the remote control button again before it stops transmitting.

align the antenna cable of the garage door opener unit. This can improve signal reception/transmission.
