How to Activate the Garage Remote with an XC90

The XC90 is a crossover sports-utility vehicle manufactured and marketed by Volvo Cars. The XC90 features a HomeLink remote transmitter system that can be used in place of your garage-door remote transmitter. Before you can use the HomeLink remote transmitter system, however, you will need to activate and program the HomeLink system to recognize your garage-door opener.

Step 1

Place the key in the ignition and start your Volvo XC90. The car should be in the garage, so you will be near the main motor unit of the garage-door opener.

Step 2

Press and hold the button on your garage-door remote transmitter.

Step 3

Press and hold the "1" button on the reverse side of the driver's-side visor in your car. The display light on the visor will flash rapidly at first, but will turn solid green after approximately 10 seconds.

Step 4

Release the button on the garage-door remote transmitter and release the button on the visor after the light turns solid green.

Step 5

Move quickly to the main motor unit of your garage-door opener and press the "Learn" button on the side or back of the unit within 30 seconds after releasing the button on your visor.

Step 6

Return to the vehicle and press the "1" button on your visor within 30 seconds of pressing the "Learn" button on the motor of the garage-door opener. The display light on the visor will flash three times, indicating that the activation is complete.
