Jeep Wrangler: UNIVERSAL GARAGE DOOR OPENER (HOMELINK®) — IF EQUIPPED / Canadian/Gate Operator Programming

For programming transmitters in Canada/ United States that require the transmitter signals to “time-out” after several seconds of transmission.

Canadian radio frequency laws require transmitter signals to time-out (or quit) after several seconds of transmission – which may not be long enough for HomeLink® to pick up the signal during programming. Similar to this Canadian law, some U.S. gate operators are designed to time-out in the same manner.

It may be helpful to unplug the device during the cycling process to prevent possible overheating of the garage door or gate motor.

  1. Place the ignition in the ON/RUN position.
  2. Place the hand-held transmitter 1 to 3 inches (3 to 8 cm) away from the HomeLink® button you wish to program while keeping the HomeLink® indicator light in view.
  3. Continue to press and hold the HomeLink® button, while you press and release (“cycle”) your hand-held transmitter every two seconds until HomeLink® has successfully accepted the frequency signal. The indicator light will flash slowly and then rapidly when fully trained.
  4. Watch for the HomeLink® indicator to change flash rates. When it changes, it is programmed. It may take up to 30 seconds or longer in rare cases. The garage door may open and close while you are programming.
  5. Press and hold the programmed HomeLink® button and observe the indicator light.


  • If the indicator light stays on constantly, programming is complete and the garage door/device should activate when the HomeLink® button is pressed.
  • To program the two remaining HomeLink® buttons, repeat each step for each remaining button. DO NOT erase the channels.

If you unplugged the garage door opener/ device for programming, plug it back in at this time.

  3. Without releasing the button, proceed with “Canadian/Gate Operator Programming” step 2 and follow all remaining steps.
