So I was wondering the same thing a couple weeks back. So I PM'd vasman and here is a condensed version of his response:
1. go to the back of the headlights and you find you high beam wire
2. get your favorite homelink and conect the possitive to your hibeam wire and the negative on your closest safe ground
3. program your homelink (hi beams on while you do that)
4. turn off the high beams
5. take some duct tape (or whatever) and tape down the button you just programed. might want to add a twist tie for added holddown (vasman had it fail a few times until he did that)
6. then pull back your hi beam lever and watch your door go up.
NOTE: try it a few times before you actually tape it incase you did program it correctly
I have gotten my homelink, but haven't hooked it up yet. I hooked up a 12v supply and did all the programming. The trick I found, for rolling code, was to hold your original remote VERY close to the homelink during step where you press the button on your original remote.
I'm toying with the idea of using the 'extra' buttons I have on my dash. I think those are only there on the '10s and '11s though. I have two 'blanks' under my heated seat buttons and two more 'blanks' where the HVAC buttons are. Not sure if they can easily be convered to buttons, and also not sure if I care to have the LED visible. Waiting to get warranty work done before I open up the dash.
Here is another thread from this forum: http://mustangforums.com/forum/2005-...-the-dash.html
The nice thing about this one is there is a link to a document where it explains the pin-outs for the circuit board within the homelink.
Here is another thread on this forum that is the same as this topic (adding it to the overhead console): http://mustangforums.com/forum/2005-...tallation.html
