When programming, it helps to clear out your HomeLink by pressing and holding the first and third buttons down until
the indicator on the HomeLink blinks slow then fast (about 20 seconds), then release both buttons. If there is
something already programmed to your HomeLink do not clear it unless you are able to reprogram what is already
on there.

First, Train HomeLink to any Genie Intellicode® Remote
 

You will need to start with this step for each new opener head/HomeLink button combination. It is also recommended to consult the car’s owner’s manual as individual auto manufacturers and models may have specific requirements related to that vehicle.

1. Choose a button on a Genie Intellicode remote* not yet programmed to your operator. The only reason to use a button not yet programmed to your operator is to keep the door from moving up and down during programming. There is no issue if you have the button already programmed to the operator.

*If you have chosen the G3T remote shown here, click the remote to view more details

before continuing to Step 2. If this is not your remote, continue directly to Step 2 below.

2. Choose the button on your HomeLink that you want to use to open your door.

  • If you are using one of the G3T remotes shown in the above step or a G1T, continue with Step a).

  • If you are not using one of these remotes below, continue to Step b).
     

a) If you are using the three-button remote shown right: From the previous Step 1 c), please hold the same button you changed to the red LED for approximately 10 seconds prior to pressing your HomeLink button (until both a red and green LED light show again on this remote). Once both the red and green LEDs light up, then press your HomeLink button down as well – holding both sets of buttons down until the indicator on the HomeLink blinks slowly and then fast. Once it goes fast, release both buttons.

If you are using the one-button remote G1T shown here: Please hold the button for
approximately 10 seconds prior to pressing your HomeLink button, then press your
HomeLink button down as well – holding both sets of buttons down until the indicator
on the HomeLink blinks slowly and then fast. Once it goes fast, release both buttons.

You are now ready to program your HomeLink to an opener. In the following

pages, please find the document that suits your situation and continue programming.

b) Hold down both the remote button and your HomeLink button at the same time. As you hold both buttons down, the indicator on your HomeLink should blink slowly then fast. Once it goes fast, release both buttons.

The steps below have a slight difference based on the date your garage door opener was manufactured. 

There are steps for programming Homelink based on when your garage door opener was manufactured. If your serial number has the first 5 digits of 11290 or smaller then your model was made prior to November 2011. If your serial number has the first 5 digits of 11291 or higher then your model was made after November 2011. Follow the appropriate instructions below.
