How to Set the Garage Door Opener on Chevy Cars

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

Many Chevrolet cars, as well as other GM vehicles, are equipped with a universal remote system. The system can be recognized by the three buttons surrounded by a garage icon. The company that makes the Chevy remote system is Car2U. You can program the system to your garage door or to a security gate.

Step 1

Make sure your garage door is a programmable unit. Most garage doors built after 1996 will be compatible with the Chevy universal remote system.

Step 2

Turn your ignition to the "On" position. Press and hold the two outside buttons on your universal remote system (usually located on the sun visor or above the rear-view mirror) for two seconds, and then release them.

Step 3

Have your assistant press the "Learn," "Program" or "Smart" button on your garage door opener motor unit.

Step 4

Press and hold the button on your universal remote system that you want to program to your garage door. Hold the button for 20 seconds.

Step 5

Release the button as soon as the garage door moves (within one second). Press the button again to finish the programming. Test your button to make sure the system works.
