The Benefits of HomeLink®

Still wondering to yourself “what is HomeLink® and how can it benefit me?” Winchester area drivers like you love this innovative technology for these reasons:

  • Compatibility: HomeLink® works with the majority of gate systems and garage door openers, not to mention other radio-frequency (RF) controlled devices.
  • Ease of Use: With just the press of a couple buttons, you can easily connect your Chevy to your home.
  • Control Up to 3 Devices: The HomeLink® system gives you the ability to modulate three different devices, all while blending into your vehicle interior.
  • Battery-Free: HomeLink® runs on the electrical system in your Chevy so you’ll never worry about having to replace any batteries!
  • Safety & Security: Wondering if you left your garage door open or closed it? HomeLink® apps can help! They also give you remote access over other in-home features, like lights and security systems.

How Do I Program HomeLink®?

The process of programming a HomeLink® system is simple if you follow these easy steps:

  1. The HomeLink® unit in your Chevy has 3 buttons on it. Usually, you’ll find these buttons on a vehicle visor or in the front center map light cluster on the ceiling. Find the first and third (outer) buttons, and press them for about 20 seconds or until the interior lights of your Chevy start flashing. Note that this is referred to as a “master reset” and will only need to be completed your first time programming HomeLink®.
  2. After you notice your ceiling lights flashing, press and hold the button you’d like to program while also holding the open/close button on your garage door opener. The lights should then change from a slow to quick flashing pattern, indicating that the programming process has finished.
  3. Go into your garage and press the “learn” button on your garage door opener.
  4. Return to your Chevy. Next, press the button you’ve programmed for a minimum of two seconds. You may see the lights on your garage door opener flash, indicating that it is connecting.
