Do not use the Universal Remote system with any garage door opener that does not havethe stop and reverse feature. This includes any garage door opener model manufacturedbefore April 1, 1982.

Read these instructions completely before programming the Universal Remote system.It may help to have another person assist with the programming process.

Keep the original hand-held transmitter for use in other vehicles as well as for futureprogramming. Erase the programming when vehicle ownership is terminated. See “ErasingUniversal Remote System Buttons” later in this section.

To program a garage door opener, park outside directly in line with and facing thegarage door opener receiver. Clear all people and objects near the garage door.

Make sure the hand-held transmitter has a new battery for quick and accurate transmissionof the radio-frequency signal.

Radio Signals for Canada and Some Gate Operators

For questions or programming help call 1-800-355-3515 or see

Canadian radio-frequency laws and some U.S. gate operators require transmitter signalsto time out or quit after several seconds of transmission. This may not be long enoughfor the Universal Remote system to pick up the signal during programming.

If the programming did not work, replace Step 2 under “Programming the Universal RemoteSystem” with the following:

Press and hold the Universal Remote system button while pressing and releasing thehand-held transmitter button every two seconds until the signal has been successfullyaccepted by the Universal Remote system. The Universal Remote system indicator lightwill flash slowly at first and then rapidly. Proceed with Step 3 under “Programmingthe Universal Remote System” to complete.
