Programming HomeLink

Programming HomeLink  - HomeLink Wireless Control System - Instruments and controls - Volvo XC90 Owners Manual - Volvo XC90

NOTE
Some vehicles may require the ignition switch to be turned on or to the second (accessories) position for programming and/or operation of HomeLink. It is also recommended that a new battery be placed in the hand-held transmitter of the device being programmed to HomeLink for quicker training and accurate transmission of the radio-frequency signal.

1. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter 13 inches (514 cm) away from the HomeLink button you wish to program while keeping the indicator light in view.
2. Simultaneously press and hold both the chosen HomeLink and hand-held transmitter buttons until the HomeLink indicator light changes from a slow to a rapidly blinking light. Now you may release both the HomeLink and hand-held transmitter buttons.

NOTE
Some devices may require you to replace this Programming Step 2 with procedures noted in the Gate Operator / Canadian Programming section. If the HomeLink indicator light does not change to a rapidly blinking light after performing these steps, contact HomeLink at www.homelink.com.

3. Firmly press, hold for five seconds and release the programmed HomeLink button up to two separate times to activate the door. If the door does not activate, press and hold the just-trained HomeLink button and observe the indicator light.

If the indicator light stays on constantly, programming is complete and your device should activate when the HomeLink button is pressed and released.
If the indicator light blinks rapidly for two seconds and then turns to a constant light continue with Programming steps 4-6 to complete the programming of a rolling code equipped device (most commonly a garage door opener).

4. At the garage door opener receiver (motorhead unit) in the garage, locate the learn or smart button. This can usually be found where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the motor-head unit.
5. Firmly press and release the learn or smart button. (The name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer.) There are 30 seconds to initiate step 6.
6. Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold for two seconds and release the programmed HomeLink button. Repeat the press/hold/release sequence a second time, and, depending on the brand of the garage door opener (or other rolling code equipped device), repeat this sequence a third time to complete the programming process.

HomeLink should now activate your rolling code equipped device.

Gate Operator/Canadian Programming

Canadian radio-frequency laws require transmitter signals to time-out (or quit) after several seconds of transmission which may not be long enough for HomeLink to pick up the signal during programming. Similar to this Canadian law, some U.S. gate operators are designed to time-out in the same manner.

If you live in Canada or you are having difficulties programming a gate operator or garage door opener by using the Programming procedures, replace Programming HomeLink step 2 with the following:

Continue to press and hold the HomeLink button while you press and release - every two seconds (cycle) your handheld transmitter until the HomeLink indicator light changes from a slow to a rapidly blinking light. Now you may release both the HomeLink and hand-held transmitter buttons.

Proceed with Programming step 3 to complete.
