Frequently Asked Questions
How do I set up HomeLink?
First, have your garage door or gate remote ready before programming.
- Park your car in front of the device you want to program.
- Access the HomeLink settings on your touchscreen through Controls > Settings > HomeLink.
- Add a new HomeLink.
- Select ‘Program.'
- Follow the instructions on the touchscreen.
- Stand in front of your car with your remote pointed at the front bumper and hold the button until the headlights flash.
- Select ‘Continue’ on the touchscreen.
- Select ‘Learn’ on the device’s receiver, which is on the back of the controller often attached to the ceiling of your garage.
Only devices with a rolling code remote need to go through the 'Learn' process. If you have an old device that is not equipped with a rolling code remote or it is ‘Quick-Train’ compatible, you can skip this part of the process.
What if the headlights don’t flash?
- Check the batteries in the remote.
- Hold the remote against the front bumper approximately 6 inches left of the Tesla emblem and hold the button down. It may take as long as 3 minutes.
- Check the compatibility of the remote by contacting the HomeLink manufacturer.
What if the device doesn’t work after programming?
- Make sure you are pressing the receiver's LEARN button. Most receivers have two buttons and an LED. For instructions on how to put the receiver into learning mode, refer to the owner documentation provided with the HomeLink device.
- Most devices stay in learning mode for 3-5 minutes. Immediately after pressing the ‘Learn’ button, follow the instructions displayed on the touchscreen.
- For Model 3, park your car with its front bumper as close as possible to the HomeLink device.
- Make sure you haven’t reached the device receiver's limit of learned remotes/cars. Most receivers can learn up to five remotes/cars. If the receiver's memory is full, you must clear the memory and restart the programming process. For instructions on how to clear the receiver's memory, refer to the owner documentation provided with the HomeLink device.
