Default Homelink

Those of us with garage door openers wish we had something better than that clunky thing on the visor. Plus..those things trash visors.

Here'* my weekly contribution to the art of modding
Picked up a few homelinks and decided which would fit best. It required more modding of the map light holder (part in headliner that holds it.) than anything else. This one came out of a 98 Park Ave.

The posts that secure it needed to be added.

A hole for the buttons to stick through, the light to shine through when the button is pushed and a little buildup of material on the outer edge of the light to make it look right.

It'* in, works great with my doors and looks pretty darn close to factory option.


Any thoughts?

Looks great, also I like it awhole lot in my car. No need for the garage door opener just program it and use the buttons in the car.

That'* pretty cool Bill, you'll like using it. My 2000 has it oem and I love it! Beats the thing dangling on the keychain all the time. You might get a few orders for that set up!

Homelink is great! I've got to buy a transmitter for my condo U/G parking, then return it once the Aurora learns the signal.

Looks factory in your car Bill..well done.
