Default 'Homelink' confusion .. programming garage door opener

I just bought a used 2009 Santa Fe Limited.

The owner's manual says you can program your garage door to open by using the 'Homelink' button on the rearview mirror once programed.

Well, if I program the garage door opener to work with the Santa Fe's 'Homelink', will the garage door still open when I use the regular remote that's in my other car?

Thank's

That was faaaast ......



It says that the last step in programming the Homelink is to press the "Learn" button on the actual garage door opening itself within a certain period of time.

I was looking at my electric garage door motor, and I don't think it has a learn button.

I tried to program the Homelink, but obviously didn't press any Learn button on the actual garage door opener .. and of course it didn't work

This is a copy & paste from the Tips & Tricks section of this Forum:

Programming Homelink for a Rolling Code Garage Door Opener - Limited Only - The owners manual is very poorly worded in regards to this and because of its lack of useful instruction, I struggled to program my Homelink for well over half an hour. I'm putting this in here to save you from needless aggravation and wasted time. Please be aware that all garage door openers manufactured in 1996 or later are rolling code designs.

> Make sure the car is away from the door and that pets and children are clear of the area.
> Turn the ignition to 'ON' but don't start the engine.
> Take your existing pre-programmed clicker and hold it up to the mirror. Choose the button on the mirror that you wish to program (1, 2 or 3) and press and hold it while pressing and holding the existing clicker. The red light on the mirror will flash slowly.
> Continue to hold both buttons until the red light on the mirror flashes rapidly, then release both buttons.
> Locate the 'Train' or 'Learn' button on the opener motor itself and press it. You should have between 30 seconds and one minute to complete the process, depending on the make and model of garage door opener.
> Return to the car and press and hold the button you programmed to the clicker. Your garage door opener light should flash and/or make a clicking sound to indicate the programming was successful.
> Test the button on the mirror to confirm successful programming.
> If you continue to experience difficulties, consult the manual for your garage door opener.

I think a lot of people don't believe they need to get up on the ladder/stool and perform this step, or wait too long to finish the job afterward... although I don't know why. It's the same for other devices and vehicles as well.

I had to run through this exercise twice for some reason when I programmed mine back in '09, but it does work per the manual and the quoted text you provided.

The easiest way to have anything programmed is to engage any kid - owns or neighbor's..

nemohm made me laugh.

Aside from that - went to Homelink.com website. There is a training video there - worked like a charm. My garage door opener is vintage 1987 and it still worked. WOOT!
