    I have a 2018 SR5 4/4 6cyl w/out moonroof.
    My disappointment is - no homelink. Can a homelink connection be added.

    You can also purchase a generic Homelink module out of a another vehicle (GM had them in the visors in the late 1990's - early 2000's) and mount one of those in your headliner as long as you supply power to it.

    I did that on my old truck and it only cost me about $25.00 in parts. It's not as well integrated as the mirror, but it was also only 10% or so of the cost.

    1. Unplug current mirror.
    2. Undo mirror retainer screw and remove
    3. Plug in new mirror and place on windshield stub
    4. Tighten screw
    5. Program Homelink

    All done!!!! As Doc Brown would say, "Amazing, isn't it?"

    Updated my 2018 TRD Sport with Homelink mirror from www.bobsmirrors.com.
    10 minute remove and reinstall. Another 10 minutes calibrate the compass and program the Homelink.
    The 12 pin plug and play was just that. I went with the used mirror option. It looked brand new and had an installers sticker on it to be sure and calibrate the compass.

    Did this for 20 bucks. Took my old 3button garage door opener, and a custom momentary switch from aironboard.com. little soldering and it will fit in the blank switch on the left cubby. Looks very OEM.

    I had the compass in mine, so swapping the mirror was a single screen, unplugging the mirror, and sliding out the mirroe. Easy

    So in your case, as I look at the photo, button 'S3' was the one that operated your door .... correct?
