How to Pair Up Your BMW's HomeLink System to Your Garage

How to Pair Up Your BMW’s HomeLink System to Your Garage. 

HomeLink is a high-tech home automation system that has the capability of pairing your BMW up with your garage door opener. Our BMW Genius at Sharpe, Dan Bui, provides a step-by-step breakdown of how to pair your BMW’s HomeLink System to your garage.

Step 1: Turn Your BMW On and Make Sure HomeLink System's Memory is cleared

To start the pairing process, make sure that your BMW is turned on in either accessory mode or fully turned on.

Make sure that your HomeLink is ready for pairing by clearing out the system's memory. To do this press and hold the two outside buttons under your rearview mirror until the light rapidly starts to blink.

Note: If you are unsure if the HomeLink has been synced before, clear the memory.

Step 2: Press and Hold Garage Door Opener and Desired HomeLink Buttons

After making sure the HomeLink System is cleared, press and hold the garage door opener button and the desired HomeLink button until the light on the rearview mirror starts rapidly blinking green.

Step 3: Push the "Learn" Button on Your Garage Door Box

Once the HomeLink System has been paired to the garage door opener you will then need to push the "Learn" or "Program" button on your garage door box.

Note: This button may either be on the underside of the garage door box or inside the light cover.

Step 4: Push the Programmed HomeLink Button 3 Times

After pressing the learn button on the garage door box, head back to your BMW and push the already paired HomeLink button three times to finish the pairing process.

Note: You may have to press and hold the HomeLink button to finish the pairing.

Following this step-by-step tutorial should result in the synchronization of your BMW’s HomeLink system and your garage door opener. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Sharpe BMW Genius, Dan Bui, via phone (616-222-0538) or email ([email protected]).
