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.

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!

Sorry for resurrecting this thread, but thought I would ask here.

I have a 2009 Santa Fe Limited. The wife surprised me this year with a new garage door opener. It's the Chamberlain with belt drive and wifi enabled. Very nice and quiet opener.

The only down side, is that I don't think my homelink in my 2009 Santa Fe works with this model. It's the Chamberlaine model wd962mlevc or the wd962kevc.

Just some history... I was able to program my homelink with the older Gennie model that I had.

I've followed all of the instructions, both in the owners manual, on this thread and watching the homelink video. Unfortunately, nothing has worked. It appears that I may need to buy Chamberlaine's compatibility bridge which sells for $25.

Has anyone with this same Chamberlain model been able to successfully program their 2009 Santa Fe's homelink? Or is the compatibility bridge the only solution?

Cheers!

The instructions in a tips there were wrong in my programming and I mentioned it somewhere a year ago. I forgot what I did but it works with the new Sears opener which are made by them as well I am sure. I know its winter but just sit back in the cab (in your driveway) you can do as I did with a cold one or stiff one. Pressing the button for the response and it'll learn soon enough I am sure. Just don't drive after that since the catalyst was not road friendly. LOL'

I programmed my Button one on the mirror if that makes a different.

Ok I found the post... http://www.hyundai-forums.com/cm-2007-2012-santa-fe/114668-tips-tricks-8.html

As stated the owners manual process worked for me.

Thanks for the response Tripplec, but after 30 minutes I could not get it to work. I've tried the owners manual method with no luck.

I guess I'll try again and see tomorrow.

In the meantime, I might email homelink to have them confirm if this Chamberlain model is compatible or not.

When I looked at their support site, they only showed Santa Fe model years 2011 to 2016.

Cheers!

If your box for the opener has the frequency on it as mine as well as saying it was as mine did it should work without the bridge. Also did you start with the door closed. One of the steps shows detection in the wink process. Mine was done a year and half ago and its a 2008 SF. Sometimes you have to start from scratch and the learning mode will time out after a period of time. You may have to restart learning mode at least twice if you are not getting it.

Yes call them and talk to someone. They can always email you information to assist you.

Good Luck

Thanks for your response canderson.

So you do believe that the homelink within the 2009 Santa Fe is not compatible with this Chamberlain model? ...And that the only way to use my cars homelink controls is to purchase Chamberlain's bridge.

Either way, I've sent homelink an email asking for them to confirm.

Cheers!

I am guessing the Box did not say Homelink Compatible already. Hence needing the bridge. Too bad that model didn't I checked mine in advance.

FWIW ... I replaced my own garage door opener about a year ago -- a noisy and under-powered lead screw drive piece of crap -- and although I really liked the Chamberlain units, it was the added cost of the bridge that dissuaded me. Instead, I picked up a decent belt drive unit from Genie that could handle Homelink without the hassle.
