Read the instructions completely before attempting to program the transmitter. Because of the steps involved, it may be helpful to have another person available to assist you in programming the transmitter.

Be sure to keep the original remote control transmitter for use in other vehicles, as well as, for future programming. You only need the original remote control transmitter for fixed code programming. It is also recommended that upon the sale or lease termination of the vehicle, the programmed buttons should be erased for security purposes. See “Erasing your Universal Home Remote Buttons” later in this section.

Be sure that people and objects are clear of the garage door or security device you are programming. When programming a garage door, it is advised to park outside of the garage.

If you do not know if your garage door opener is a


If you do not know if your garage door opener is a fixed code or rolling code device, open your garage door opener’s remote control battery cover.

Your garage door opener is a fixed code device if there is a panel of switches. If not, your garage door opener is a rolling code device.

Programming Universal Home Remote — Fixed Code

Example of Switch Settings
Example of Switch Settings

Fixed Code garage door openers are used for garage doors produced prior to 1996. Fixed code uses the same coded signal every time, which is manually programmed by setting DIP switches for a unique personal code.

To program up to three channels, 1. Remove the battery cover of the hand-held transmitter.

2. Write down the eight to 12 coding switch


2. Write down the eight to 12 coding switch settings from left to right. When the switch is in the up position, write “on,” and when a switch is in the down position, write “off”.

If a switch is set between the up and down position, write “middle”.

3. Enter these positions into the Universal Home Remote System as follows.

Press and release all three buttons at the same time to put the device into programming mode.

4. The indicator light will blink slowly. In order from left to right, and within two and one-half minutes, enter each switch setting into the Universal Home Remote System. Push one button for each switch as follows: • Left button = “on” switch position.

• Right button = “off” switch position.

• Middle button = “middle” switch position.

5. After entering the switch settings, press and release all three buttons at the same time.

The indicator lights will turn on.

6. Press and hold the button you would like to use to control the garage door until the garage door moves. The indicator light above the selected button should slowly blink.

You may need to hold the button from five to 55 seconds.

7. Immediately release the button when the garage door moves. The indicator light will blink rapidly until programming is complete.

8. Press and release the button again. The garage door should move, confirming that programming is successful and complete.

To program another device such as an additional garage door opener, a security device, or home lighting, repeat Steps 1–8, choosing a different function button in Step 7 than what you used for the garage door opener.

Programming Universal Home Remote — Rolling Code

Rolling code garage door openers are used for garage doors produced after 1996 and are code protected. Rolling code means the coded signal is changed every time your remote control garage door opener is used.

Programming a rolling code garage door opener involves time-sensitive actions, so read the entire procedure before you begin. If you do not follow these actions, the device will time out and you will have to repeat the procedure.

Follow these steps to program up to three channels:


Follow these steps to program up to three channels: 1. Press the two outside buttons at the same time for one to two seconds, and immediately release them.

2. Go to the garage. Locate the garage door motor head and press and release the “learn” button.

After pressing the “learn” button, you have 10 to 30 seconds to complete Step 4 depending on your garage control unit. If you cannot locate the “learn” button, refer to the owners guide for your garage door opener.

3. Press and hold the button you would like to use to control the garage door until the garage door moves. The indicator light, above the selected button, should slowly blink.

You may need to hold the button from five to 20 seconds.

4. Immediately release the button when the garage door moves. The indicator light will blink rapidly until programming is complete.

5. Press and release the button again. The garage door should move, confirming that programming is successful and complete.

To program another device such as an additional garage door opener, a security device, or home lighting, repeat Steps 1–5, choosing a different function button in Step 3 than what you used for the garage door opener.

Using Universal Home Remote

Press and hold the appropriate button for at least half of a second. The indicator light will come on while the signal is being transmitted.

Reprogramming Universal Home Remote Buttons

You can reprogram any of the three buttons by repeating the instructions.

Erasing Universal Home Remote Buttons

You should erase the programmed buttons when you sell the vehicle or terminate your lease.

To erase either rolling code or fixed code on the Universal Home Remote device, do the following: 1. Press and hold the two outside buttons at the same time for approximately 20 seconds, until the indicator lights, located directly above the buttons, begin to blink rapidly.

2. Once the indicator lights begin to blink, release both buttons. The codes from all button will be erased.
