Car2U Home Automation System (if equipped)

The Car2U Home Automation System is a universal transmitter located in the driver’s visor that includes two primary features – a garage door opener and a platform for remote activation of devices within the home. The Car2U system’s garage door opener function replaces the common hand-held garage door opener with a three-button transmitter that is integrated into the interior of your vehicle. After being programmed for garage doors, the Car2U system transmitter can be programmed to operate security devices and home lighting systems.

WARNING: Make sure that people and objects are clear of the

garage door or security device you are programming. Do not WARNING: Make sure that people and objects are clear of the garage door or security device you are programming. Do not program the Car2U system with the vehicle in the garage.

Do not use the Car2U 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 manufactured before April 1, 1982).

Be sure to keep the original remote control transmitter for use in other vehicles as well as for future Car2U system programming. It is also recommended that upon the sale or lease termination of the vehicle, the programmed Car2U system buttons should be erased for security reasons. Refer to Erasing the Car2U Home Automation System buttons later in this section.

Read the instructions completely before attempting to program the Car2U system. Because of the steps involved, it may be helpful to have another person assist you in programming the transmitter.
