homelink

My question may sound stupid but I have read that some of you ZL1 owners have the homelink. How did you get it? Do you have the Nav system? My dealer said they don't have them. I just have 3 blank spaces where the buttons should be. I was actually upset it didn't have the system. Now I have to carry two openers in the console. I know I've gotten spoiled with homelink systems before.

I think all ZL1s come with homelink. Have you tried pressing one of the "blank" spaces which i think may just be buttons? I thought they kind of looked like blanks when i first saw them.

They are also impossible to see in the dark when you shut the car off and the dome light comes on. I have to feel for them.

I'll have to check. Stupid question but does it light up or anything when you press it to let you know it's doing something? I pick mine up tomorrow from getting Xpel Ultimate put on so I can't ceck right now. I honestly haven't tried since he said it didn't have it. Just got pissed that it didn't have it. Goes back to me being spoiled having other cars with them.

Do either of you have the Nav system or a sunroof? I'm trying to come up wth possible reasons that I might not have it. I don't have Nav but do have the sunroof.

you should have it. it is just three button they don't stand out very well at all the spaces you talk about might just be the buttons. they are not silkscreaned like my RAM. there is small single red LED that is hard to see. it will flash slow if the button has not been programed, fast if it has been programed.

Thanks for the info I'll check when I pick it up and then may be heading straight to the dealer. As far as your ram, what is it. My 2004.5 Ram 2500 diesel doesn't have it, I'm definitely jealous. Where is the red light located so I'll know where to look? Thank you for your time.

The three buttons are located on the passenger side, in front of the dome light. As mentioned above you have to feel for them because they're hard to see.

You definitely should have it. Just follow the instructions in your owners manual. You may need to manually program your garage door opener. Good luck. Mine works fine...

I got to say that I must have missed it when I went through the manual. I saw nithing about the homelink. I know how to program them, I've had it in other cars. I just never even tried it because the dealer said they don't come with it. Thanks to all for your help. I'll check it tomorrow and let you know if I got screwed by the dealer.

Dealer is clueless. It's standard equipment on all the ZL1's. Look for it. It's there.

I bet you could add it easy on you ram. It just pops in the overhead. Find the assembly on eBay.

taking it to dealer will do no good, he cant program your garage door from his dealership, you need to be sitting in front of your garage door, push the "learn button" on your garage door,, get off the ladder...walk to your car, get in, push which homelink button you want to open that door, keep it pressed until your garage door light clicks on and off,,release your homelink button,,whaa laaaa! done..repeat for other doors.. hope that helps..

That is why I hate even talking to my dealer. They have been clueless through my entire process from the day I inquired about purchasing a ZL1. I felt is was pretty bad when the salesman said to the owner of the dealership, in a bragging way, that I knew way more about the car then him. Which I felt wasn't that much. If it wasn't for this website, and people like you that are helpful, I'd be totally clueless also.

I also added it to my Silverado WT. No power windows or door locks, but I have Homelink and Nav screen and system.

I wish I had known, I was in Lancaster a few weeks ago and could have shown you first hand.

I can confirm that the universal remote system, option UG1 should come standard on the 2013 ZL1.

Universal Remote System Programming

If the vehicle has this feature, you will see these buttons with one indicator light below them in the overhead console. This system provides a way to replace up to three remote control transmitters used to activate devices such as garage door openers, security systems, and home automation devices.

This all starts on page 5-46 in the 2013 Camaro Owner's manual.

I just picked it up about a hour ago, from getting Xpel, and guess what? I have homelink! If it wasn't for this website I would've never known. I would never had pushed the buttons, since my salesman said I didn't have it. Now I am a happy camper again. IT's the little things in life. Thanks to all!

As Forrest Gump once said "Momma always says stupids is as stupid does" .

And apparently I am stupid for believing my salesman, which is stupid. That just goes to show you how much some of our saleman/dealers know.

I do agree they are flat buttons that are over on the passenger side and more difficult to just reach up and feel for than my Trailblazer SS. This is just one little annoyance in an otherwise awesome car. Another one is the sun visor is too small to actually block out the sun. And another is the DIC doesn't return to where I left it when you restart the car.
This is for Brandon at Cust. Service if he's keeping track.

It's like any other car...you're going to find things as you have it longer that are just a little annoying. But the fact that it is a CAMARO makes all that go away! I don't even think twice about the little annoyances that I come across...I'm just glad others with this car find the same ones.

If something starts to annoy me too much, I just drop the hammer and it all goes away!!

Never found anything disagreeable with my C5 Z06.

[Edit] Don't get me wrong. I love my ZL1.
