Here is a pretty simple mod I did for those of us too cheap/poor to buy a Homelite mirror. I have an 05 with the compass so that eliminates the garage door opener holder and since the visor is too thick for the clip I decided to hide it under the dash.
Before we start I am no electrical engineer but figured out how to make this work on my remote. It may not be the best way but the button on the remote works as well as my wired button. I am not sure how similar remotes are but mine is a Genie and is about 3 years old.
I used this momentary ON switch from radio shack but am going to upgrade to this one soon.
I took the remote apart and using an OHM meter figured out what the button on the remote did when it was activated. Once I had that figured out I used some electrical tape to temporarily hold the wires in place while I tested the radio shack button. Once I knew it would work I soldered the wires in place:
Front of remote
Back of remote with wires soldered on
I drilled some holes in the side of the remote housing to let the wires through.
I turned my attention to the radio shack switch. I soldered the wires to the new switch and drilled a hole in one of the blank panels. To get the switch to stay in place I basically filled the back side with hot glue.
I used a couple of quick disconnects and tucked the remote under the dash board and reinstalled the panel in the dash.
Since I am not very good with a dremel I am going to replace both switched with these. A regular ON/OFF for my amp (on the left) and a Momentary ON for the garage door opener.
