It can be tricky, first off the instructions can change depending on brand and model of your garage door opener, but try this.

  • First off locate your Learn/Smart button on your opener, if you have a Chamberlain, Sears, LiftMaster it will most likely be on the back of the unit or the right hand side (while facing toward the door) just below the wire terminal (the button is usually red or green).
  • Next go to your car and clear the homelink. To do this press and hold the 2 outside buttons for up to 30 seconds or until the indicator light starts blinking more rapidly. This usually takes almost the full 30 seconds.
  • Next hold your hand held remote up to the Homelink and press and hold both buttons(the one you want to use in the car and the button on the remote) until your indicator light either blinks faster or goes out completely.
  • Now go back to and press your Learn/smart button on your Garage Door Opener and quickly (you have up to 20-30 seconds) return to your car and press and HOLD the button you programmed for 5 seconds. Now you should be able to hit the button and work the door (With these rolling code type openers you may have to always hold the button in for 1-2 seconds to send the signal.)
  • Good Luck!!!
  • This method also works for those pesky apartment complex security gates. Clear the homelink, and press the button you wish to use at the same time as the gate opener. That's all!

If you have any problems with the above instructions you can get programming instructions specifically for your car AND garage door opener. Go to the Homelink website at

I am pretty positive that only a Chevy dealer can program the remote keyless entry device for you.

Look in your owners manual or take it to the Chevy garage.

It's called a homelink transmitter. To clear all previous programming, before you start, hold down the two outside buttons for 10-30 seconds until the red light blinks rapidly. Sometimes it clears quickly and sometimes it takes a while, but it will blink very rapidly when it's cleared. Then to program, you have to have a remote control for the garage door you wish to program. Hold the remote control near the buttons. Press and hold the button on the remote control. Without releasing that button, press and hold the button you want to program. The red light will blink slowly and then when it "memorizes" the code, the red light will start blinking at a different speed. Now the car has programmed the remote to it. You are done, unless... If you have a newer garage door opener, there is more than likely a "learn" button on the back of the motor itself. If this is the case, you have to press the "learn" button on the back of the motor and then immediately press the button in your car. This has something to do with rolling code technology. If this isn't completely right (I'm telling you this from memory), go to for more information. Don't forget to delete your programming before you sell your car.
