Yes and here's how to program them straight from the owner's guide.

Programming
Do not program HomeLink
with the vehicle parked in the garage.
Note:
Your vehicle may require the ignition switch to be turned to the
ACC position for programming and/or operation of the HomeLink. It is
also recommended that a new battery be placed in the hand-held
transmitter of the device being programmed to HomeLink
for quicker
training and accurate transmission of the radio-frequency signal.
1. Press and hold the two outside
buttons releasing only when the red
light begins to flash after 20
seconds.
Do not repeat step one to
program additional hand-held
transmitters to the remaining two
HomeLink
buttons. This will erase
previously programmed hand-held
transmitter signals into HomeLink.
2. Position the end of your
hand-held transmitter 2
8 cm (13 inches) away from the HomeLink
button you wish to program (located on your visor) while keeping the
red light in view.
3. Simultaneously press and hold
both the HomeLink
and 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 replace
step 3 with procedures noted in the
Gate Operator and Canadian Programmingin this section for Canadian
residents.
4. The red light will flash slowly and then rapidly. Release both buttons
when the red light flashes rapidly. (The rapid flashing light indicates
acceptance of the hand-held transmitters
radio frequency signals.)
5. Press and hold the just-trained HomeLink
button and observe the red
light. If the light is a constant red, programming is complete and your
device should activate when the HomeLink
button is pressed and
released.
Note: To program the remaining two HomeLinkbuttons,

begin with step 2 in the
Programmingsection do not repeat step 1.

Note:
If the red light blinks rapidly for two seconds and then turns to a
continuous red, proceed with steps 6 through 8 to complete
programming of a rolling code equipped device.
6. At the garage door opener receiver (motor-head unit) in the garage,
locate the
learnor smartbutton (usually near where the hanging
antenna wire is attached to the unit).
7. Press and release the
learnor smartbutton. (The name and color
of the button may vary by manufacturer.)

Note:
There are 30 seconds in which to initiate step eight.
8. Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold for two seconds and
release the HomeLink
button. Repeat the press/hold/release sequence
again, and, depending on the brand of the garage door opener (or other
rolling code equipped device), repeat this sequence a third time to
complete the programming.
HomeLink
should now activate your rolling code equipped device. To
program additional HomeLink
buttons begin with step 2 in the

Programmingsection. For questions or comments, please contact

HomeLink at
www.homelink.com or 18003553515.

That should do it, I don't believe I missed anything.

Yes.

HOMELINK
 WIRELESS CONTROL SYSTEM (IF EQUIPPED)

The HomeLink
Wireless Control System, located on the driver’s visor,
provides a convenient way to replace up to three hand-held transmitters
with a single built-in device. This feature will learn the radio frequency
codes of most current transmitters to operate garage doors, entry gate
operators, security systems, entry door locks, and home or office lighting.
When programming your HomeLink
Wireless Control System to
a garage door or gate, be sure that people and objects are out of
the way to prevent potential harm or damage.
Do not use the HomeLink
Wireless Control System with any garage
door opener that lacks safety stop and reverse features as required by
U.S. federal safety standards (this includes any garage door opener
model manufactured before April 1, 1982). A garage door which cannot
detect an object, signaling the door to stop and reverse, does not meet
current U.S. federal safety standards. For more information, contact
HomeLink
at: www.homelink.com or 1–800–355–3515.

Retain the original transmitter for use in other vehicles as well as for
future programming procedures (i.e. new HomeLink
equipped vehicle
purchase). It is also suggested that upon the sale of the vehicle, the
programmed Homelink
buttons be erased for security purposes, refer to

Programming in this section.

Do not repeat step one to
program additional hand-held
transmitters to the remaining two
HomeLink
buttons. This will erase
previously programmed hand-held
transmitter signals into HomeLink.
2. Position the end of your
hand-held transmitter 2–8 cm (1–3 inches) away from the HomeLink
button you wish to program (located on your visor) while keeping the
red light in view.
3. Simultaneously press and hold
both the HomeLink
and 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 replace
step 3 with procedures noted in the
“Gate Operator and Canadian Programming” section for Canadian
residents.
4. The red light will flash slowly and then rapidly. Release both buttons
when the red light flashes rapidly. (The rapid flashing light indicates

5. Press and hold the just-trained HomeLink
button and observe the red

device should activate when the HomeLink

released.
Note: To program the remaining two HomeLinkbuttons,

begin with step 2 in the “Programming” section —
do not repeat step 1.

Note:
If the red light blinks rapidly for two seconds and then turns to a
continuous red, proceed with steps 6 through 8 to complete
programming of a rolling code equipped device.
6. At the garage door opener receiver (motor-head unit) in the garage,
locate the “learn” or “smart” button (usually near where the hanging
antenna wire is attached to the unit).
7. Press and release the “learn” or “smart” button. (The name and color
of the button may vary by manufacturer.)

Note:
There are 30 seconds in which to initiate step eight.
8. Return to the vehicle and firmly press, hold for two seconds and
release the HomeLink
button. Repeat the press/hold/release sequence
again, and, depending on the brand of the garage door opener (or other
rolling code equipped device), repeat this sequence a third time to
complete the programming.
HomeLink
should now activate your rolling code equipped device. To
program additional HomeLink
buttons begin with step 2 in the
“Programming” section. For questions or comments, please contact

HomeLink at
www.homelink.com or 1–800–355–3515.

Operating the HomeLink
 Wireless Control System

To operate, simply press and release
the appropriate HomeLink
button.
Activation will now occur for the
trained product (garage door, gate
operator, security system, entry
door lock, or home or office lighting
etc.). For convenience, the
hand-held transmitter of the device
may also be used at any time. In the event that there are still
programming difficulties, contact HomeLink
at www.homelink.com or

1–800–355–3515.
Erasing HomeLink
 buttons

To erase the three programmed
buttons (individual buttons cannot
be erased):
Press and hold the two outer
HomeLink
buttons until the red
indicator light begins to
flash-after 20 seconds. Release
both buttons. Do not hold for
longer that 30 seconds.
HomeLink
is now in the train (or
learning) mode and can be programmed at any time beginning with step
2 in the
“Programming” section.

Reprogramming a single HomeLink
 button

To program a device to HomeLink
using a HomeLinkbutton previously
trained, follow these steps:
1. Press and hold the desired HomeLink
button. Do NOT release the
button.
2. The red indicator light will begin to flash after 20 seconds. Without
releasing the HomeLink
button, follow step 2 in the “Programming”
section.
For questions or comments, contact HomeLink
at www.homelink.com

or
1–800–355–3515.

Can I take a visor with the garage opener on it and just add it to my vehicle? Where does it plug in or is it battery operated? Thanks!

OK...
One button is a garage door opener.
The second button inflates the tires.
The third button is the passenger eject button... for those days the mother in-law takes a ride in your X.
HA HA!!!

Oh. Mine's different. The one on the left opens the garage door, the one in the middle turns red traffic lights green for me, and the one on the right makes 6686L make another self-agrandizing, insulting post. Sorry about the overuse of the right one. One of my kids pushes it to make the other ones laugh. I am trying to make him understand that it is not OK to laugh at people like that.

Lemme see if I can slow down alittle to explain in the most simplistic form so ya'll can comprehend... oh sorry understand.

Question 1: Can one take a visor with the garage opener and add it to an Excursion that doesn't have it?

Question 2: Is the garage opener battery operated or does it connect to some part of the vehicle for operation?

Please if I am using too many big word let me know I can recommend a special needs school for your much needed help.

Again I'm sorry for your headache!

It gets power from the vehicle. I believe as long as you tie into power, you can add the home link to a vehicle that did not have it before. Probably the same harness in the visor. My truck has home link, but it doesn't fit in my garage. Also, both my garage doors recently broke. Stupid plastic geers...
