Default Acura HomeLink garage door opener programming?

I own a 2002 Acura TL. It has a programmable HomeLink Garage Door Opener system installed. I can't quite figure out how to program it. It says in the manual to press the Train button on your garage door opener. However, I can't find where it is. Can someone help me?

its its like how you program it on a 06 TL. all you do is put the car on, ON, but dont start it. press and hold the two outer buttons, then it will blink. When it dose press the button you wnat to program and hold it, at the same time press your garage remote button you wnat to sync with the home like and it will blink faster and faster till it goes solid then it should be synced

Jordan.....listen to me...I sell Acura's. First, your car does not need to be on. Simply hold your remote up to the Homelink buttons. At the same time press your remote and the first button on the Homelink and hold them down for roughly 20-30 seconds. It should slowly flash red and when it picks up the signal (20 seconds) it should flash quickly......you are now programmed! Directions are also in your owner's manual. The train button they are referring to is actually on your garage door machine in your garage. Try my method first and if that does not work for you, then look for the train button on your opener. It will depend on what type of opener you have. Most are compatible without having to look for the train button. Good luck, I hope this helped!

Hold your garage door opener next to the opener control on your Acura you activate them both at the same time holding both buttons on for 5 to 10 secs and it will be set..

FROM THE HOMELINK WEB SITE ( http://www.homelink.com/training/train.taf?do=start ):CAUTION!Before programming HomeLink to a garage door opener or gate operator, make sure that people and objects are out of the way of the device to prevent potential harm or damage. Your motorized garage door or gate will open and close while you are programming HomeLink. Do not program HomeLink if people or pets are in the path of the door or gate. A moving garage door or gate can cause serious injury or death to people and pets or damage to objects. Vehicle exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a dangerous gas. Do not run the vehicle's engine while programming HomeLink. Exhaust gas can cause serious injury or death. When programming a garage door opener, it is advised to park outside of the garage.Do not use HomeLink 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 that cannot detect an object signaling the door to stop and reverse - does not meet current U.S. federal safety standards.If programming a garage door opener or gate, it is advised to unplug the device during the HomeLink programming and also if performing the "cycling" process to prevent possible motor burn-up. NOTE: Some vehicles may require the ignition to be turned on or to the second (or “accessory” or ACC) position for training and/or operation of HomeLink. It is also recommended that a new battery be replaced in the hand held transmitter of the device being trained to HomeLink for quicker training and accurate transmission of the radio frequency.1. For first time training, press and hold the two outer HomeLink buttons, releasing only when the HomeLink indicator light begins to flash after 20 seconds. (Do not perform this step when training the additional HomeLink buttons.) 2. Position the hand-held transmitter 1-3 inches away from the HomeLink surface (located on your overhead), keeping the HomeLink indicator light in view.3. Using both hands, simultaneously press and hold both the desired HomeLink button and hand held transmitter button. DO NOT release until the HomeLink indicator light flashes slowly and then rapidly. When the indicator light flashes rapidly, both buttons may be released. (The rapid flashing indicates successful training.) Note: Some garage door openers may require you to replace step 3 with the “cycling” procedure noted in the “View Canadian Instructions” section.4. Press and hold the trained HomeLink button and observe the indicator light.If the indicator light is solid/continuous, training is complete and your device should activate when the HomeLink button is pressed and released. If the indicator light blinks rapidly for 2 seconds and then turns a solid/continuous light, proceed with the following training instructions for a rolling code device. A second person may make the following steps quicker and easier. Please use a ladder or other device. Do not stand on your vehicle to perform the next steps. 5. At the garage door opener receiver (motorhead unit) in the garage, locate the “learn” or “smart” button (usually near where the hanging antenna wire is attached to the unit). If there is difficulty locating the training button, reference the garage door opener’s manual or contact us. 6. Press and release the “learn” or “smart” button (the name and color of the button may vary by manufacturer). NOTE: Once the button is pressed, there are 30 seconds in which to initiate the next step. 7. Return to the vehicle and firmly press and hold the trained HomeLink button for two seconds and release. Repeat the “press/hold/release” sequence up to 3 times to complete the training process. HomeLink should now activate your device.Retain the original hand-held transmitter of the RF device you are programming for use in other vehicles, as well as for future HomeLink programming. It is also suggested that upon the sale of the vehicle, the programmed HomeLink buttons be erased for security purposes. To erase the programmed buttons, perform the procedure shown in step number 1.**To train additional HomeLink buttons, begin with step two.
