Ram 1500/2500/3500: Canadian/Gate Operator Programming

For programming transmitters in Canada/United States that require the transmitter signals to "time-out" after several seconds of transmission.

Canadian radio frequency laws require transmitter signals to time-out (or quit) after several seconds of transmission - which may not be long enough for HomeLink to pick up the signal during programming. Similar to this Canadian law, some U.S. gate operators are designed to time-out in the same manner.

It may be helpful to unplug the device during the cycling process to prevent possible overheating of the garage door or gate motor.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position.

2. Place the hand - held transmitter 1 to 3 inches (3 to 8 cm) away from the HomeLink button you wish to program.

3. Simultaneously press and hold both the HomeLink button while you press and release ("cycle"), your hand - held transmitter every two seconds.

4. Continue to hold buttons until the EVIC display changes from "CHANNEL # TRAINING" to "CHANNEL # TRAINED," then release both buttons.

NOTE:

  • It may take up to 30 seconds or longer in some cases for the channel to train.
  • If the EVIC displays "DID NOT TRAIN" repeat from Step 2.

5. Press and hold the programmed HomeLink button.

The EVIC will display "CHANNEL # TRANSMIT." If the device is plugged in and activates, programming is complete.

If you unplugged the garage door opener/device for programming, plug it back in at this time.

Reprogramming A Single HomeLink Button

To reprogram a channel that has been previously trained, follow these steps:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position.

2. Press and hold the desired HomeLink button until the EVIC displays "CHANNEL # TRAINING" Do not release the button.

3. Without releasing the button proceed with "Canadian/Gate Operator Programming" Step 2 and follow all remaining steps.

Using HomeLink

To operate, press and release the programmed HomeLink button. Activation will now occur for the programmed device (i.e., garage door opener, gate operator, security system, entry door lock, home/office lighting, etc.,). The hand-held transmitter of the device may also be used at any time.

Security

It is advised to erase all channels before you sell or turn in your vehicle.

To erase the channels press and hold the two outside HomeLink buttons (I and III) for up 20 seconds. The Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) will display "CLEARING CHANNELS." Release the buttons when the EVIC displays "CHANNELS CLEARED." The HomeLink Universal Transceiver is disabled when the Vehicle Security Alarm is active.
