Did you have to buy anything else to make it work? How do you program it?

Cool Re: Added Homelink Module to my '01 Visor

Yup! It's an old thread; but still applicable today.

While the PT Panel Van project is delayed in the shop, I decided that I would work on putting Homelink on my visor.
It's a 2003. So that explains why it wasn't there.
My 2006+ Cruisers all already had it on the visor.

Since my 2003 Cruiser install is a little different from this original 2010 thread, I thought that I'd post some pictures of mine.

Working on it today! When the glue dries, I will finish and post pictures.
Yes, the Homelink module was about $15 on eBay!

Stay tuned!

OK!
Here goes some pictures from today and yesterday.

**The main difference between this post and the OP's install is, that I wanted the home link buttons to NOT SHOW with the VISOR UP!

That way, they are not obvious to someone who might break into the car.
**My buttons will show only when the visor is flipped down!

This is a picture showing the cut I made by tracing around the module.
*Note, that unlike the OP my visor covering was only lightly glued into the edge gap between two layers of cardboard. There were no seams to cut.



This next picture shows the two layers of cardboard cut. The upper layer facing the buttons needed cut all the way through (carefully) to the cover material on the opposite side.
* But, not all the way through the cardboard on the opposite side where the cardboard frame gets thicker for mounting the visor hinge.



This picture shows the only difficult cutting.
There was some type of green auto cure acrylic used to glue the hinges and two cardboard layers together. I ran into its difficult removal on the corner of the cut-out area.



Next you see some pictures of the module fitted before gluing in place.





Here is a picture of the module glued in place with Gorilla Glue.
Being careful not to get the glue on the visor material.
I took a different angle to show the module tabs near the buttons resting firmly on the cardboard.



Next, I spliced-in the wires from the module to the light switch are.
Since you want the module powered all the time.......
You splice the wires in before they go to the mirror cover light switch.
And then I covered the solder joint area over with a layer of Silicone glue.



I will work on gluing the material back in place in the groove between the cardboard layers tomorrow, and post a final picture or two.

Here is the fabric glued back into the groove between the cardboard layers.
I simply used Elmer's glue, just in case it were to need reopened, it won't tear the fabric.

The area where the white tape is, it is not a double layer....I believe the cardboard is folded over there with no groove.
So, I stretched the fabric to closure, and pulled the tape tight.

Will test it out this week on the car to be sure the wiring polarity that the OP posted in 2010 is correct!
