Garage Door Repair: How to Program Your Homelink Visor Remote
The first automatic garage door was actually invented in 1926, but didn’t become popular until the end of the Second World War. Nowadays, automatic garage doors are pretty much the standard for homes with attached garages.
Because of this, Johnson controls has developed the Homelink Visor. Instead of using the standard type of remote for the opening and closing of a garage door, this system has a garage door remote actually built in to the driver’s side sun visor of the owner’s car. The Homelink Visor Remote is factory equipment on some Lincoln, Mercedes, and Audis, as well as other makes and models of cars. You can also order a Homelink Visor Remote kit to install in many cars.
The advantage of this is that it is highly unlikely that you will lose your garage door remote. The convenience of the placement makes it a great way to keep and use your garage door controller.
This Add-On can be used to program your own home garage door opener by following these simple instructions. These can be found in the Homelink Visor instruction manual that comes with the system.
How to Program Your Homelink Visor Remote.
You will need to have your Garage door’s original remote to program the Homelink Visor. Make certain the batteries are fresh. A new battery is best. If your garage door receiver uses an antenna, make certain it is hanging down.
1. On your visor, press and hold the two outside buttons until the indicator button begins to flash. When this happens, release.
2. Hold your garage door remote 1 to 3 inches away from the indicator light. It needs to be close to trade signals.
3. Simultaneously, using both hands, press the button on the remote and the corresponding button on the visor. Hold them.
4. Watch the indicator light. Once it stops blinking and turns to a solid light, the visor button should now perform the same function as the remote. Note: If the indicator light flashes rapidly for two seconds then go solid, you have a rolling code device and need to see below.
5. Follow the steps again for any additional buttons.
Rolling Code Device
A rolling code indicates that your garage door opener changes its codes on a regular basis. This system is set up for added security. Your Homelink Visor is equipped for this type of device. For this type of special programming, check the instruction manual that came with your remote.
