The Perks of Using Chevy HomeLink®

Many Bolingbrook drivers may still be wondering “what is HomeLink®”? Whether you drive a Chevrolet Malibu, Silverado, Traverse, or anything in-between, you can benefit from HomeLink® connectivity to control various at-home features remotely. Here are the benefits HomeLink® provides:

  • Compatibility: The feature is compatible with nearly any garage door opener or gate system! It also works well with various other radio-frequency (RF) controlled devices, so there are plenty of possibilities. It can also work with up to three devices.
  • Easy to Use: All you need to do is press a couple of buttons to control lights or garage doors once you’ve finished programming HomeLink®!
  • Safety and Security: If you program HomeLink® to connect with your garage door opener, the system will alert you if your garage door has been left open. You can also access HomeLink® apps on your phone that let you control other devices in the home, including lights or a security system.
  • No Batteries: When you use this system, you won’t need to worry about changing batteries every so often — it’s integrated right into your vehicle’s electrical system!

Programming the HomeLink® System

Programming HomeLink® is actually incredibly easy — any Bolingbrook driver will be able to do it! Follow these steps and you’ll have the system ready to go in no time:

  • Locate the three HomeLink® buttons (commonly found on the ceiling of the car above the center console).
  • Press and hold down the first and third buttons. You may release the buttons when the interior lights of your car flash (this typically takes about 20 seconds).
  • Next, press and hold the button you want to program while holding the open/close button of your garage door opener at the same time. When the lights flash again, you’ll know that programming is complete!
  • Press the newly programmed button for at least two seconds. At this point, the lights on your garage door opener may flash — this means that you’re all set!
