How to Set the Garage Door Remote for a 2006 Chrysler 300Cby Justin Cupler
Chrysler reintroduced the 300 lineup in 1999, with the unveiling of the 300M model. In 2005, Chrysler dropped the "M" from the 300 and completely redesigned this four-door sedan. The 2006 Chrysler 300C came standard with a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine that cranked out 340 horsepower. The 300C also came standard with the HomeLink system that could be programmed to open a garage door and even turn on the lights in a home without the owner having to get out of the car. This system, however, does not program automatically. You must follow a programming process for this system to work on your house.
Single Code Garage Door Opener
Park your 300C near your garage door. Press and hold the two outer buttons on the HomeLink system -- the garage door buttons -- for 20 seconds and observe as "Channels Cleared" appears in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center, located between the speedometer and tachometer.
Hold your garage door transmitter about three inches away from the HomeLink buttons. Press and hold the garage door opener button and the HomeLink button you intend to use for the garage door, at the same time.
Release the buttons when the EVIC displays "Channel X Trained" -- the "X" indicates the HomeLink button that you programmed.
Hold the button you just programmed and check the EVIC display. If it reads "Channel X Trained," with "X" being the HomeLink button number, then you programmed the system correctly. If the EVIC displays "Did Not Train," repeat steps 2 and 3.
Repeat steps 2 through 4 to program the remaining two buttons, if needed. Do not repeat Step 1, as this deletes all programs.
Rolling Code Garage Door Opener
Follow steps 1 through 5 in the section titled "Single Code Garage Door Opener."
Locate the "Learn" or "Smart" button on the garage door opener motor. The exact positioning varies on every model opener, but it's typically found near the antenna. Press and release the "Learn" or "Smart" button.
Hold the programmed HomeLink button for two seconds and release it. Repeat this step two or three times -- the exact number of times depends on the brand of garage door opener.
- Chrysler recommends replacing the batteries in your garage door transmitter prior to programming the HomeLink system.
