    Anyone know of an aftermarket "home link" system? Essentially, I want to add a built in garage door opener. Maybe even put it in place of the button that switches the temp guage in the ceiling console...

    Easiest way.... buy a Homelink Mirror.
    I have an auto-dimming homelink mirror & it works GREAT!!

    or...you can do what my husband did in our corvette. He bought a vent visor with a homelink box in it (You can't buy homelink pieces separately). He tore out the box and mounted it in the car and wired his own buttons. Electronics experienced highly recommended - but thought I'd post it anyway.

    I knew about the HomeLink mirrors you could buy, but my '09 has the backup camera screen in it. However, the sunvisor idea is kinda what I had in mind. Get the homelink parts and rip it apart and install it how I like...

    Thanks!

    I bought a unit off of Ebay and installed it next to the cup holder. Started on it tonight and will finish it tomorrow night. Make sure you buy a rolling code one if that is what your gate/garage door open requires.

    Post pics when you are done. I bought a visor off Ebay as well and ripped out the module, but haven't installed it yet.

    Very cool!

    Does the home link require a power wire run to it or does it have a battery like a regular grarage door opener?

    Nice! Did you have to do anything to extend the buttons so they made connections with the circuit board with the added thickness of the center console or was it a simple "drill three holes"?

    How did you secure it to the bottom of the center console?

    I took some measurments of what actuall need to go through the console, made a template out of a post it and put a bigger piece of tape over it, then taping it to the underside of the console. I did have to dremel down the small support grooves on the underside. Then I lined everything up after I took the electronics out and epoxied it into place..

    I should have done a DIY. sorry.

    If you have any other questions lmk.
