How to Program the Hyundai HomeLink® Garage Door Opener

Many drivers don't use the built-in garage door opener in their vehicle because they simply don't know how to program it. But it's easier than you might expect. Before you start, clear your garage door, and have your garage door opener remote in-hand. Then locate the garage door buttons in your Hyundai usually found on the rearview mirror. Then, read through the following steps so you know the process before following them:

  1. Park your vehicle outside your garage, and close your garage door. 
  2. Press and hold the two outside garage door buttons on the left and the right until you see the corresponding red light next to them begin to flash.
  3. Press and hold the garage door button on your garage door remote control while simultaneously pressing and holding the HomeLink® garage door button on your Hyundai rearview mirror. 
  4. Wait until you see the red light on your rearview mirror turn solid or flash very quickly. A slow flash means that the system is still programming.
  5. Press the button and see if your garage door opens. If it doesn't, repeat these steps, and if it doesn't work a second time, continue through the rest of this guide.
