HomeLink Compatibility Bridge Programming Guide

The HomeLink® Compatibility Bridge is designed to allow compatibility between a new Chamberlain, Sears Craftsman, or LiftMaster garage door opener and the HomeLink system in your vehicle. Refer to the your vehicle owner’s manual for specific instructions on programming the HomeLink system. Your model may look different than illustrated in this programming guide.

Be sure that your vehicle is parked outside of the garage before programming the HomeLink Compatibility Bridge. Two people may be needed to program the HomeLink system.


1. Program the HomeLink in your vehicle using the new remote control included in the HomeLink Compatibility Bridge Kit in place of your original garage door remote control. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for programming steps.
2. Plug the HomeLink Compatibility Bridge into a 120 vAC polarized outlet, located as close as possible to your garage door opener.
3. Straighten the antenna
4. Press and release the YELLOW “Learn” button on the garage door opener. The “Learn” LED will glow steadily.
5. Within 30 seconds press and hold the programmed HomeLink button in your vehicle.
6. Release the HomeLink button when the garage door opener light blinks. If light bulbs are not installed in the garage door opener, two clicks will be heard.
7. Press and hold the programmed HomeLink button for 2 seconds, three times. Your door should now be operational.


If you are using the HomeLink Compatibility Bridge system with a garage door opener that has a Battery Backup system, ensure the original remote control is in programmed to the garage door opener and place it in your glove box for use in the event of a power outage.

The HomeLink Compatibility Bridge remote control must be kept for future programming (i.e. a different HomeLink equipped vehicle, a new garage door opener, etc.).
