HomeLink®  | How To | 2020 Fiat Spider

[music playing] Your vehicle may be equipped with our convenient
HomeLink® system. HomeLink® replaces up to three remote controls
or handheld transmitters so you can operate devices such as garage door openers, motorized
gates, lighting or home security systems from the safety of your driver’s seat. You’ll find the HomeLink® buttons in the
mirror. To start programming for a garage door opener,
first make sure you’re parked outside the garage. It’s also recommended that you put new batteries
in the handheld device you’ll be programming. The HomeLink® unit is powered by the vehicle’s
battery and does not require replacement. Then you’ll want to reset the HomeLink®
system memory. To do this, simply push and hold the two outside
buttons until the indicator light flashes. This could take up to 20 seconds. This procedure erases all three HomeLink®
button programs, so you only need to do it once. Do not erase all three channels when programming
additional buttons. Now, before you program your HomeLink® system,
you’ll need to determine the type of garage door opener you have. Go to the garage door opener motor in the
garage. See if you can find the Learn or Train button,
which is usually found where the hanging antenna wire connects to the garage door opener motor. It is not the same button normally used to
open and close the door, and it may vary by name or color depending on the manufacturer. If you can find a Learn or Train button on
the opener motor, then you’re using a newer, “rolling code” garage door opener, and
programming will involve a few additional steps. If there is no Learn or Train button, that
means you have an older, non-rolling code garage door opener. Once you know what type of opener you’re
using you’re now ready to program the HomeLink® system. Here we go. Put the ignition switch in the On/Run position,
but don’t start the engine. Hold the handheld transmitter 1 to 3 inches
or 3 to 8 centimeters away from your HomeLink® system. Now, simultaneously push and hold both the
HomeLink® button you want to program and the handheld transmitter button. Watch the HomeLink® indicator light. It will flash slowly at first, and then rapidly. It may take 30 seconds or more for the rapid
flashing to occur. When it does, release both buttons. The garage door may open and close while you’re
programming. To check your programming, push and hold the
just programmed HomeLink® button and observe the indicator light. If the indicator light stays on continuously,
then programming is complete and the garage door should activate when the HomeLink® button
is pushed. At this point, if you have an older, non-rolling
code garage door opener, you’re done. Your HomeLink® controls and garage door opener
should now be in sync. If you have a rolling code garage door opener,
here’s where those additional steps come into play. Go to the garage door opener and once again
find the Learn or Train button. Firmly push and release it. You now have 30 seconds to return to the HomeLink®
system, so move quickly. Better yet, it might be good to have a second
person standing by at the HomeLink® system. Once there, push the HomeLink® button you’d
like to program, twice. Hold the button for 2 seconds each time. If the opener is plugged in and activates,
programming is complete. If it does not activate, push the button a
third time for 2 seconds to complete the training. Please note that HomeLink® will be disabled
any time an onboard security alarm is active. If you have any problems or require assistance,
