How to Program Your Car to a Liftmaster Garage Door Operator

Entry Systems Tech Talks: Programming Your Car to a Liftmaster Operator

In the second video of our new Tech Talks series, Jonathan, our Manager of Garage Door Operations, explains how to program your car to a Liftmaster operator using your car’s existing garage door opener buttons.

It is important for you to have easy access to your home. One great way to make your life that much more convenient is to program your car directly to your garage door operator! This will allow you another means of access into your garage and allow you to give your current garage door remote to another family member or keep it in a second car. Why not connect the technology you already have in place and make your life a little easier?

If you’ve never programmed your car’s garage door buttons, now is the time. It can be a little confusing the first time, but this video from an Entry Systems professional will allow you to DIY (do it yourself) in just a minute or two.

Here’s an overview:

Many cars these days have HomeLink buttons installed which allow you to easily program your car to open and close your garage door using a Liftmaster operator.

A car’s HomeLink usually has a small symbol of a house and three buttons, and it is most commonly placed on the roof right above the windshield on either driver’s side or in the middle.

It should look something like this:

Make sure you also have a currently programmed garage door remote so you can transfer it over to your car’s HomeLink buttons.

Now follow these simple steps:

1- Decide which car button you want to program. Press that button & make sure the light flashes slow. If the light is solid or flashes fast, hold it down until it starts flashing slow (it could take up to 30 seconds to reset).

2- Take the handheld garage door remote that is already programmed. Hold down that remote’s button at the same time as you hold down your car button until the car button’s light starts flashing fast.

(With some newer cars this is all you have to do! Press your car’s button, and if the garage door opens you are done! If the door doesn’t open, however, continue to the next step.)

3- Find the “learn button” on your garage door operator (that’s the button on the machine which pulls your door open). Push that button down quickly (just once!).

4- Now go back to your car and hold down the button you chose to program. The lights on your motor should blink once.

5- Press your car’s programmed button & your garage door should now open. You’re all done!
