How to set up your Mazda garage door opener
HomeLink is a proprietary system that you can find in many cars, trucks, and SUVs, and Mazda employs it in many of their vehicles. In short, it is a universal system that allows you to open your garage door and many other things that require similar RF signals. This system is usually integrated into your rearview mirror or your driver’s side sun visor though some manufacturers may vary. Learn how to set up your Mazda garage door opener here.
How to program your Mazda HomeLink system
You have the HomeLink buttons, but you have to program them before you can use them. Otherwise, they are just buttons without a job. For most devices, this will be a simple job.
- Hold your garage door opener remote up near your HomeLink system, making sure that nothing is in the way of your garage door.
- Press both the open button on your garage door opener remote and the desired button on your HomeLink system in your Mazda. Hold them until the indicator light on your HomeLink system changes from a slow flash to a rapid flash.
- Test the HomeLink button in your car to see if it works.
What to do if HomeLink programming doesn’t work?
If the previous method doesn’t work, it could mean you have a rolling-code garage door opener. This is a good thing for your garage door opener as it is more secure, but it also means the process will be a little different.
- On the back of your garage door opener (the motor on your garage ceiling, not the remote), there should be a smart or learn button. Press and release this and return to your car.
- Hold down the button that you have programmed in the previous step for two seconds. You will have to repeat this step up to two more times before programming will be complete.
What Mazda models have available HomeLink integration?
