    Default Home-link lights not working. I]s there a fuse for Home-link ?

    Hi


    Just got an '06 Black Raven/Cashmere XLR-V. It's pretty slick. Have had it a week now. Tried to marry the Home-link to my Garage door opener; pretty straight forward procedure; have done it on several different vehicles.

    Problem with doing it on the V is, when the buttons are pushed no lights come on. Have even held the outer two for 30 seconds. no change... nothing. Is there a fuse for this item ? Anybody else have an issue similar to this ? Is there a plug down under the dash or something ? Does it have to be enabled ?

    If your opener is only a couple years old it may not work on home link. I don’t know if you can get an update for the home link. If any knows I would like one

    OK thanks.

    I am saying that my Home-link buttons DO NOT light up at all. Even not programmed, they are supposed to light up. I know that my Garage opener can work with Home-link. I have it on two other vehicles and they operate my garage door opener just fine. I am saying my opener presents as not powered. It t should light up regardless

    I don't know if you have the owner's manual, but here it is

    From the Owner's Manual
    Programming Universal Home Remote
    Follow these steps to program up to three channels:
    1. Press and hold down the two outside Universal
    Home Remote buttons, releasing only when the
    Universal Home Remote indicator light begins
    to flash, after 20 seconds. Do not hold down the
    buttons for longer than 30 seconds and do not
    repeat this step to program a second and/or third
    hand-held transmitter to the remaining two Universal
    Home Remote buttons.
    2. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter
    about 1 to 3 inches (3 to 8 cm) away from the
    Universal Home Remote buttons while keeping the
    indicator light in view.
    3. Simultaneously press and hold both the desired
    Universal Home Remote button and the hand-held
    transmitter button. Do not release the buttons
    until Step 4 has been completed.
    Some entry gates and garage door openers may
    require you to substitute Step 3 with the procedure
    noted in “Gate Operator and Canadian
    Programming” later in this section.
    4. The indicator light will flash slowly at first and then
    rapidly after Universal Home Remote successfully
    receives the frequency signal from the hand-held
    transmitter. Release both buttons.
    5. Press and hold the newly-trained Universal Home
    Remote button and observe the indicator light.
    If the indicator light stays on constantly,
    programming is complete and your device should
    activate when the Universal Home Remote button is
    pressed and released.
    To program the remaining two Universal Home
    Remote buttons, begin with Step 2 under
    “Programming Universal Home Remote.” Do not
    repeat Step 1 as this will erase all of the
    programmed channels.
    If the indicator light blinks rapidly for two seconds
    and then turns to a constant light, continue with
    Steps 6 through 8 following to complete the
    programming of a rolling-code equipped device,
    most commonly, a garage door opener.
    6. Locate in the garage, the garage door opener
    receiver (motor-head unit). Locate the “Learn”
    or “Smart” button. This can usually be found where
    the hanging antenna wire is attached to the
    motor-head unit.
    7. Firmly press and release the “Learn” or “Smart”
    button. The name and color of the button may
    vary by manufacturer.
    You will have 30 seconds to start Step 8.
    8. Return to the vehicle. Firmly press and hold the
    programmed Universal Home Remote button for
    two seconds, then release. Repeat the
    press/hold/release sequence a second time, and
    depending on the brand of the garage door opener,
    or other rolling code device, repeat this sequence
    a third time to complete the programming.
    The Universal Home Remote should now activate
    your rolling-code equipped device.
    To program the remaining two Universal Home Remote
    buttons, begin with Step 2 of “Programming Universal
    Home Remote.” You do not want to repeat Step 1,
    as this will erase all previous programming from
    the Universal Home Remote buttons.

    Home-link power is fused through the cigar lighter. Programming the Home-link took about two minutes. Works GREAT !!!
