How to program HomeLink to a garage door opener

HomeLink® System Programming for Genie® garage door openers 

Clearing the HomeLink system happens by pressing and holding the first and third buttons down for about 20 seconds or until the indicator on the HomeLink blinks fast. Then release both HomeLink buttons 1 and 3. You only need to clear the HomeLink from your car if you do not have an unused button or this is a pre-owned car that may have a previous owners garage door opener installed. 

 

Programming the car's HomeLink using your Genie garage door opener remote

  • Choose the button on your HomeLink that you want to use to open your garage door and have a Genie garage door opener remote that currently operates your garage door nearby. 
  • Make sure that there are no obstructions, people, or animals in the path of the garage door since it will move during programming.

@Calvin. The 3120 will work with Homelink. It may if you have followed the instructions and it is not working on either vehicle, it is possible that it is a problem with the remote you are using to program it. I will reach out to your email to try to help you resolve this.

We just had a Genie 3120 Garage Door Opener installed as a replacement for a 4062 that stopped working. However, I cannot get the opener to connect to Homelink in our 2020 Mazda CX-9 or 2020 Hyundai Sonata. I’m sure I’ve followed instructions properly because I had the vehicles connected to our other opener. Any help would be appreciated. This opener was too expensive not to have it not be able to connect to our relatively new vehicles.

@Brian. It sounds like you have a unit that can hold up to seven wireless devices. This includes any old remotes, or wireless devices that have been programmed. Once there is seven, any new remote programmed will kick the last one out that was programmed. To fix this, you can clear the receiver. To clear it press and hold the learn code button in until the red led light goes out. Then reprogram each wireless device back in to the power head up to seven.
You can also call 1-800-354-3643 for programming assistance.

Programmed Honda Pilot as described. It works fine on the Honda Homelink, but disables the remote. If I reprogram the remote it renders the Honda homelink useless. Is the fix to assign a different button on the disabled remote?
