How the IONIQ 5 connects to garage door openers
Garage door openers are the new highlight of convenience for modern cars. They allow drivers to operate home accessories from within their cars using a universal remote.
A universal car remote can open and close garage doors and gates or turn lights on as you pull up to your home. These remotes are designed to work with compatible devices using the HomeLink system. You can see if your device is compatible by looking for an icon of a house with an arrow inside.
The IONIQ 5 garage door opener allows an owner to program up to three devices to control from their car. Making manually opening driveway gates, turning on outdoor lights, or closing garage doors a thing of the past.
Before programming the garage door opener
The IONIQ 5 garage door opener is very simple to program and should take no longer than five minutes to complete. There are several steps involved, along with some prerequisites. Before programming a garage door opener, it is advised to:
- Turn the ignition on to ACC (at least).
- Park the vehicle close to the device being programmed.
- Replace the battery in the handheld transmitter of the device being programmed.
These steps ensure that the vehicle is in a safe location and that the transmitter is powered before attempting to program it.
Finally, replacing the battery in the transmitter ensures that communication is accurate to complete the programming process.
How to connect your garage door opener
Once the above criteria are met, you can program your universal remote. The steps outlined below are based on a garage door opener being programmed; however, it is easy to use these same steps for outdoor lighting or driveway gates.
- Choose which HomeLink button (1, 2, or 3) to program and press and release it. If the HomeLink indicator light flashes orange slowly, you can continue with the programming. If it doesn’t, you must erase the HomeLink buttons and start over.
- Get your garage door opener remote and hold it 1 to 3 inches from the HomeLink button.
- While the HomeLink indicator light is flashing orange, press and hold the button on your garage door opener remote. Keep holding it until the HomeLink indicator light changes from orange to green, and then release the remote button.
- Wait until your garage door comes to a complete stop before moving on to the next steps.
- Press and release the HomeLink button you’re programming and look at the indicator light:
- If the indicator light stays solid green, your device should work when you press the HomeLink button. The programming is complete!
- If the light flashes green repeatedly, press and release the HomeLink button up to three times in a row. Don’t press it in quick succession, only slowly. If your device works, programming is complete. If not, move on to step 6.
- Locate the “Learn”, “Smart”, “Set”, or “Program” button on the device you are trying to program. It’s usually near the hanging antenna wire attached to the motor-head unit. Check your device’s manual to find it. Press and release this button.
- You now have up to 30 seconds to complete the next step. Go back to your vehicle and slowly press and release the HomeLink button up to three times in a row. Again, don’t press it rapidly. As soon as you see the garage door start to move, stop pressing any buttons until a few seconds after the garage door has come to a complete stop, regardless of its position.
Your device should now work when you press and release the HomeLink button.
Resetting a single HomeLink button
If you change devices or move house, remove the device you have programmed to one of your buttons. To do this, a few simple steps can be followed to have this button ready for reprogramming.
- Hold down the HomeLink button you want to reprogram.
- Wait for the HomeLink indicator light to turn solid green.
- Release the button when the light starts flashing orange.
- Follow the steps for programming a new HomeLink button.
Resetting all HomeLink buttons
When selling the car, it is advised to clear all programming on the universal remote to avoid the new owner being able to operate your gates or garage door. To do this, follow the steps below.
- Press and hold HomeLink buttons 1 and 3 together.
- The indicator light will turn solid orange for 10 seconds.
- Once the light changes to green and flashes rapidly, release the buttons.
- All three HomeLink buttons will now be cleared of any programming.
In conclusion, programming the garage door opener for your Hyundai IONIQ 5 is a simple process that can be completed in just a few minutes. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily program up to three devices to be controlled from your car.
If you still need to do so, go ahead and program your garage door opener today and enjoy the convenience and ease this feature provides.
As always, consult the owner’s manual or call your local dealership if you have any issues.
