NOTE HomeLink and HomeLink house are registered trademarks of Gentex Corporation.

The HomeLink system replaces up to 3 hand-held transmitters with a single built-in component in the auto-dimming mirror. Pressing the HomeLink button on the auto-dimming mirror activates garage doors, gates and other devices surrounding your home.

WARNING

Do not use the HomeLink system with any garage door opener that lacks the safety stop and reverse feature: Using the HomeLink system with any garage door opener that lacks the safety stop and reverse feature as required by federal safety standards is dangerous. (This includes garage doors manufactured before April 1, 1982.) Using these garage door openers can increase the risk of serious injury or death.

For further information, contact HomeLink at www.homelink.com or www.youtube.com/HomeLinkGentex or an Authorized Mazda Dealer.

Always check the areas surrounding garage doors and gates for people or obstructions before programming or during operation of the HomeLink system: Programming or operating the HomeLink system without verifying the safety of areas surrounding garage doors and gates is dangerous and could result in an unexpected accident and serious injury if someone were to be hit.

NOTE The programming will not be erased even if the battery is disconnected.

Pre-programming the HomeLink System

NOTE It is recommended that a new battery be placed in the hand-held transmitter of the device being programmed to HomeLink for quicker training and accurate transmission of the radio-frequency signal.

  • Verify that there is a remote control transmitter available for the device you would like to program.

Programming the HomeLink System

The HomeLink system provides 3 buttons which can be individually selected and programmed using the transmitters for current, on-market devices as follows:

1. Press and release the HomeLink button you would like to program. The indicator light flashes slowly in amber when the button is pressed.

Switches and Controls

2. Hold the hand-held transmitter 2.5 to 7.5 cm (1 to 3 in) away from the HomeLink button you would like to program while keeping the indicator light in view.

NOTE Depending on the hand-held transmitter, it may be easier to do the programming by holding it 15 to 20 cm (6 to 7.8 in) away from the HomeLink button.

3. Press the hand-held transmitter button continuously until the indicator light changes from amber (flashing) to green (on/flashing).

NOTE Some gate operators and garage door openers may require you to replace this Programming Step 3 with procedures noted in the "Gate Operator/Canadian Programming" section.

4. Press the HomeLink button again to check if the programming has been completed.

  • If the indicator light remains on in green, the programming is complete and the device becomes operational.
  • If the indicator light flashes rapidly in green, firmly press and hold the Homelink button and release it after two seconds have passed. Repeat this process up to three times to complete the programming. The device becomes operational and programming is complete. If the device does not operate, go to the next step.

5. At the garage door opener receiver (motor-head unit) in the garage, locate the "learn" or "smart" button. This can usually be found where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the motor-head unit.

6. Firmly press and release the "learn" or "smart" button. (The name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer.)

NOTE Complete the programming within 30 seconds.

7. Return to the vehicle and firmly press and hold the Homelink button, and then release it after two seconds have passed. Repeat the "press/hold/ release" sequence a second time, and, depending on the brand of the garage door opener (or other rolling code equipped device), repeat this sequence a third time to complete the programming process.

Press the programmed HomeLink button and make sure that the HomeLink System operates.

8. If the status indicator arrows are flashing, refer to Garage Door Two-Way Communication.

Switches and Controls

NOTE To program the remaining two HomeLink buttons, go back to Step 1 of Programming the HomeLink System and repeat the procedure.

For questions or comments, please contact HomeLink at www.homelink.com or www.youtube.com/HomeLinkGentex, or the HomeLink toll-free hotline at 1-800-355-3515 (for calls placed outside of the USA, Canada, and Puerto Rico, international rates will apply and may differ based on landline or mobile phone).

Gate operator/Canadian Programming

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.

If you live in Canada or are having difficulties programming a gate operator by using the programming procedures (regardless of where you live), replace Step 3 of Programming the HomeLink System with the following:

NOTE If programming a garage door opener or gate operator, it is advised to unplug the device during the "cycling" process to prevent possible overheating.

While the indicator light is flashing in amber, press the button on the hand-held transmitter for 2 seconds and release it repeatedly until the indicator light changes from amber to green.

Go back to Step 4 of Programming the HomeLink System to complete the procedure.

Operating the HomeLink System

Press the programmed HomeLink button to operate a programmed device.

Reprogramming the HomeLink system

To program a device to HomeLink using a HomeLink button previously trained, follow these steps:

1. Press and hold the desired HomeLink button. DO NOT release the button.

2. After 20 seconds, the indicator light flashes in amber. After the indicator light flashes, release the HomeLink button.

3. Go back to Step 2 of Programming the HomeLink System to complete the procedure.

NOTE If the programming has not been completed, the system returns to the previous programming.

Erasing Programmed HomeLink Buttons

NOTE

  • All of the programmed HomeLink buttons are reset. Individual buttons cannot be reset, however, individual buttons can be reprogrammed. For individual button reprogramming, refer to Reprogramming the HomeLink System.
  • Verify that the programming has been erased if you resell the vehicle.

1. Press the two outer HomeLink buttons continuously at the same time until the indicator light flashes.

Switches and Controls

2. Stop pressing the HomeLink buttons.

Garage Door Two-Way Communication

The garage door two-way communication is a function that communicates with the garage door opener and indicates whether the garages door is open or closed using the indicator lights in the rear view mirror.

It can indicate the status of the garage door within a range up-to 250 m (820 ft).

NOTE The communication range may shorten depending on obstructions.

Programming two-way communication

Within five seconds after programming a new HomeLink button, both of the garage door status indicator lights will flash rapidly in green indicating that the garage door two-way communication has been established. If the garage door status indicator lights flash, the two-way communication programming is complete.

If the garage door status indicator lights do not flash, the two-way communication programming is not completed. For additional HomeLink information and programming videos, refer to the following Websites:

  • www.HomeLink.com
  • www.youtube.com/HomeLinkGentex

Operating the garage door two-way communication

By pressing HomeLink buttons 1 and 2 at the same time for two seconds, the status of the garage door is indicated for about 3 seconds as follows:

NOTE The programming will not be erased even if the battery is disconnected.
