Acura CL (2003 year). Instruction — page 11

Cruise control allows you to maintain
a set speed above 25 mph (40 km/h)
without keeping your foot on the
accelerator pedal. It should be used
for cruising on straight, open
highways. It is not recommended for
conditions such as city driving,
winding roads, slippery roads, heavy
rain, or bad weather. You should
have full control of the car under
those conditions.

Push in the Cruise Control Master
Switch to the left of the steering
column. The indicator in the
switch will light.

Accelerate to the desired cruising
speed above 25 mph (40 km/h).

The HomeLink Universal
Transceiver built into your car can
be programmed to operate remotely-
controlled devices around your home,
such as garage doors, lighting, or
home security systems. It can
replace up to three remote
transmitters.

If you have problems with training
the HomeLink Universal Transceiver,
or would like information on home
products that can be operated by the
transmitter, call (800) 355-3515. On
the Internet, go to www.homelink.
com.

Always refer to the operating
instructions and safety information
that came with your garage door
opener or other equipment you
intend to operate with the HomeLink
Universal Transceiver. If you do not
have this information, you should
contact the manufacturer of the
equipment.

While training or using HomeLink,
make sure you have a clear view of
the garage door or gate, and that no
one will be injured by its movement.

If you are training HomeLink to
operate a garage door or gate, it is
recommended that you unplug the
motor for that device during training.
Repeatedly pressing the remote
control button could burn out the
motor.

HomeLink stores the code in a
permanent memory. There should
be no need to retrain HomeLink if
your car’s battery goes dead or is
disconnected.

If your garage door opener was
manufactured before April 1982, you
may not be able to program
HomeLink to operate it. Garage door
openers manufactured before that
date do not have a safety feature that
causes them to stop and reverse if an
obstacle is detected during closing,
increasing the risk of injury. If you
have questions, call (800) 355-3515.

If you are training the second or
third buttons, go directly to Step 1.

Unplug the garage door opener
motor from the house current.

Before you can use HomeLink to
operate devices around your home, it
must ‘‘learn’’ the proper codes. For
example, to train HomeLink to open
and close the garage door:

If you just took

delivery of your vehicle and have not
trained any of the buttons in
HomeLink before, you should erase
any previously learned codes before
training the first button. To do this,
press and hold the two outside
buttons on the HomeLink
transceiver for about 20 seconds,
until the red light flashes. Release
the buttons, then proceed to Step 1.

Hold the end of the garage door
opener remote control 2 to 5
inches from HomeLink. Make
sure you are not blocking your
view of the red light in HomeLink.

Select the HomeLink button you
want to train.

Press the button on the remote
control and the button on
HomeLink at the same time. Hold
down both buttons.

Canadian Owners:

The remote control you are training
from may stop transmitting after two
seconds. This is not long enough for
HomeLink to learn the code. Release
and press the button on the remote
control every two seconds until
HomeLink has learned the code.

For security purposes, newer garage
door opening systems use a ‘‘rolling’’
or variable code. Information from
the remote control and the garage
door opener are needed before
HomeLink can operate the garage
door opener.

The ‘‘Training HomeLink’’
procedure trains HomeLink to the
proper garage door opener code.
The following procedure
synchronizes HomeLink to the
garage door opener so they send and
receive the correct codes.

The red light in HomeLink should
begin flashing. It will flash slowly
at first, then rapidly.

When the red light flashes rapidly,
release both buttons. HomeLink
should have learned the code from
the remote control.

Plug in the garage door opener
motor, then test the HomeLink
transceiver button by pushing it. It
should operate the garage door.

If the button does not work, repeat
this procedure to train it again. If it
still does not work, you may have a

variable or rolling code garage
door opener. Test this by pressing
and holding the HomeLink
transceiver button you just trained.
If the red light blinks for two
seconds, then stays on, you have a
rolling code garage door opener.
You may be able to verify this with
the manufacturer’s documentation.
Go to ‘‘Training With a Rolling
Code System.’’

Repeat these steps to train the
other two HomeLink buttons to
operate any other remotely-
controlled devices around your
home (lighting, automatic gate,
security system, etc.).

It may be helpful to have someone
assist you with this procedure.

Find the ‘‘Training’’ button on your
garage door opener unit. The
location will vary, depending on
the manufacturer. The
manufacturer’s documentation
may help.

Press the Training button on the
garage door opener unit until the
light next to the button comes on,
then release it. The light may blink,
or come on and stay on. You then
have approximately 30 seconds to
complete the following steps.

Make sure you have properly
completed the ‘‘Training
HomeLink’’ procedure.

Press and hold the button on
HomeLink for 3

4 seconds.

(The same button you trained with
the ‘‘Training HomeLink’’
procedure.)

Press and hold the HomeLink
button again for 3

4 seconds.

This should turn off the training
light on the garage door opener
unit. (Some systems may require
you to press the button up to three
times.)

Press the HomeLink button again.
It should operate the garage door.

The OnStar system uses the Global
Positioning System (GPS) to locate
your vehicle whenever you place a
call. This allows the advisor to
quickly contact the nearest services
without requiring you to provide
detailed directions.

Contact

the OnStar advisor if you need
assistance with a problem (flat tire,
out of fuel, etc.) while traveling. The
advisor will contact an appropriate
agency to come and assist you.

Contact an

OnStar advisor if you have an
emergency situation. The advisor
will contact the nearest emergency
services provider (ambulance, fire
department, etc.) and advise them of
your situation.

If you are ever in an

accident that causes the airbags to
deploy, the OnStar system
automatically places a call (provided
the OnStar system and your vehicle’s
electrical system are still intact). The
advisor will attempt to speak to you
to evaluate the situation, and contact
the nearest emergency services
provider.

The OnStar

advisor can help you if you are ever
in a minor accident by asking you for
information about the accident.
Complete, detailed information will
make it easier to complete accident
reports and insurance claims.

By sending a signal to your

vehicle, the advisor can lock or
unlock your vehicle’s doors. This is
helpful if you are away from your
vehicle and realize you forgot to lock

the doors, or if you have locked the
keys in your vehicle. To get OnStar’s
assistance, call (888) 4-ONSTAR
(466-7827).

Using

GPS, OnStar can locate your vehicle
almost anywhere. If your vehicle is
ever stolen, contact OnStar at (888)
4-ONSTAR. The advisor will put you
in contact with the proper authorities,
and assist them with locating your
vehicle.

If you are unable to locate your
vehicle in a large parking lot or
parking structure, contact OnStar at
(888) 4-ONSTAR. The advisor will
remotely activate the exterior lights
and the horn, allowing you to locate
your vehicle.

missed the command because it was
not yet ready for it, or there was too
much background noise. Repeat the
command after a short pause.

With

voice feedback off, the system will
respond with a tone rather than
‘‘Ready,’’ or repeating each number
you say. Other responses will still be

by voice. To turn voice feedback on

If you make a mistake speaking a
digit of the phone number, or the
system responds with the wrong
digit, say ‘‘Clear.’’ This will cause the
system to erase the last digit.

When you have finished your
conversation, press the DOT

OnStar will respond with ‘‘Dialing’’
and then repeat the complete
telephone number. It will then
place the telephone call.

Continue this until you have given
OnStar the complete telephone
number. Then say ‘‘Dial.’’

OnStar will respond with ‘‘Number
Please.’’
Say the first digit of the number.
OnStar will repeat that digit.
Always wait for OnStar to confirm
