how to program dodge ram garage door opener
Programming the garage door opener in your Dodge Ram typically involves using the vehicle’s built-in Universal Garage Door Opener (UGDO) system. Here are the general steps to program a garage door opener in a Dodge Ram:
Note: Before you begin, make sure you have the remote control for your garage door opener and that it works.
1. Locate the UGDO Buttons:
- In your Dodge Ram, you will find the UGDO buttons usually located on the overhead console, sun visor, or rearview mirror. These buttons may vary depending on your Ram model and trim.
2. Clear Existing Codes (if necessary):
- If you’re programming a new garage door opener or need to clear existing codes, press and hold the two outer UGDO buttons simultaneously until the indicator light starts blinking (usually for about 20 seconds). This clears any previously programmed codes.
3. Set Your Garage Door Opener to Program Mode:
- On your garage door opener remote control, locate the “Learn” or “Program” button. This button is typically located on the motor unit of your garage door opener, near the antenna. Press and release this button. The indicator light on the garage door opener should start blinking.
4. Program the UGDO Buttons:
- While the garage door opener is in program mode (the indicator light is blinking), press and hold one of the UGDO buttons in your Ram that you want to program. Continue holding the button down.
5. Pair the UGDO Button with Your Garage Door Opener Remote:
- While holding down the UGDO button in your Ram, press and release the button on your garage door opener remote control. Do not release the UGDO button in your Ram.
6. Confirm Successful Programming:
- After a few seconds, the UGDO button in your Ram should flash or blink rapidly. This indicates that the programming was successful.
7. Test the Garage Door Opener:
- To test the programmed UGDO button, press it briefly and release it. The garage door should start moving (either opening or closing) as programmed.
8. Repeat for Additional UGDO Buttons (if needed):
- If you have more than one UGDO button to program (e.g., for a second garage door opener), repeat the process using a different UGDO button in your Ram.
9. Exit Programming Mode:
- To exit the programming mode, press any button on the UGDO system in your Ram. This will save the programmed codes and exit programming mode.
Keep in mind that these are general instructions, and the specific steps may vary depending on your Dodge Ram model and year. If you have your vehicle’s owner’s manual, refer to it for detailed instructions tailored to your specific model. If you encounter difficulties or if the programming process is different for your Ram model, consider reaching out to your local Dodge dealership for assistance.
